After telling us that questions of her health are off the table, he's had an apparent change of heart.

Sickly Hillary collapses at 9/11 ceremony

On Sunday, the Washington Posts’ Chris Cillizza issued a tweet informing the world that the health of Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton is now a legitimate issue in the presidential campaign — after telling us that it wasn’t.

“Hillary Clinton’s health just became a real issue in the presidential campaign,” he tweeted.

As we reported earlier, Clinton suffered a “medical episode” and had to leave the 9/11 ceremony.  It was initially believed that she was taken to a hospital, based on a video report by Fox News.  The campaign, however, later said she was taken to her daughter’s apartment and is now doing much better.

According to the campaign and various media outlets, she “overheated,” but I’ve been told by someone who lives in the area that at the time of the episode, the temperature was quite mild.

This video, posted to Twitter by user Zdenek Gazda, shows the candidate being helped into her van:

Just last week, however, we were all told that any questions of her health were off limits and were just part of a vast conspiracy that had no basis in fact — despite the many coughing fits and odd “seizures” witnessed and recorded by a number of people.

Cillizza himself had tweeted this:

And this:

But now that this episode has been seen by many, he’s apparently had a change of heart.

The “switch” didn’t go unnoticed.


Cillizza responded to critics by saying:

He even agreed with one Twitter user who suggested it’s time for both Clinton and Trump to release their medical records:

In other words, it was all a conspiracy last week, but it’s now okay to discuss after this very public incident.

We don’t wish ill on anyone, not even someone we believe is the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major political party — but it’s high time the media quit covering for Hillary and start asking the tough questions.
