Clinton's Doctor Says Heat, Pneumonia Caused Overheating Episode

Now that our press has their answer, perhaps they could turn their attention to other things?

Perhaps now we can all breathe, maybe once on Hillary Clinton's behalf, since it turns out her cough and her episode at the 9-11 Memorial today has an explanation.

According to Clinton's doctor, she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday and told to cut back on her schedule, which apparently she did not actually do, because women are well-known for dragging themselves to whatever they made a commitment to do.

The combination of the antibiotics she's taking, the antihistamines, and the heat caused her to become dehydrated and overheated, according to her doctor's statement below.

Perhaps now our press can stop obsessing on this and move on? Anyone who has actually had pneumonia will attest to the kind of physical strength it must have taken her to stand there for 90 minutes in the sun.

With so much time and energy on their hands, perhaps reporters could dig into Trump's missing tax returns, or his self-dealing with his foundation, or any of the other many actual scandals there are to cover?

Can you help us out?
