Hillary Has Coughing Fit During Race Speech

In the middle of her Tuesday speech in Harlem that discussed race relations, Hillary Clinton had multiple coughing fits that prevented her from getting her words out on more than one occasion.

It got so bad that the audience enthusiastically started chanting “Hillary! Hillary!” to provide encouragement as Clinton started taking sips of water while popping in a cough drop.

She struggled to finish her speech in which she said that white Americans needed to recognize their “privilege” and help black Americans overcome “seen and unseen” barriers to opportunity and coughed some more as she exited the stage.

Hillary also had a coughing fit during last year’s Benghazi hearings.
