In recent mainstream news, a spotlight has been focused directly on the health of Hillary Clinton and her lackeys are starting to fight back with indirect threats and dares to say anything more on her coughing fits.
Clinton’s latest speeches have been riddled with hoarse speech and coughing attacks. At times, the severity of the attacks have threatened her speaking events nearly preventing her from completing her sentences. Despite all of this, nobody in the mainstream media dares to even mention it, except one lonely reporter.
On Monday, NBC Reporter Andrew Rafferty wrote that “the frog in Clinton’s throat on Monday was one of the most aggressive she’s had during her 2016 run and left her almost unable to finish her remarks.”
The article quickly garnered a backlash on Twitter from Clinton’s campaign spokesperson, Nick Merrill.
Get a life.

What did Nick mean by saying “get a life”? Did he imply that Rafferty needed a new one? Jon Favreau, a former speechwriter for Barack Obama, threatened Rafferty’s co-workers; daring them to defend the article. If they did, they might want to “get a [new] life” also.
Is there anyone at NBC, or anywhere else, who's willing to defend this story? https://t.co/cJ4pNRBTsR

“They’re trying to work the refs a little bit as they try to push back on the mainstream media’s willingness to pick up on some of this stuff that’s usually left to the fringes,” Clinton surrogate Jim Manley told The Hill.
The talk about Clinton’s health has been contained to conservative websites and news agencies, but her campaign is worried because the health issue is leaking into the mainstream media in recent weeks.
“They’re trying to stop it,” Manley continued. “I think they learned a long time ago that you can’t just ignore these things. There’s always a fine line between react or not, but in this day in age, to say nothing is often not the best way to go.”
“I think that the fact that any mainstream publications would do anything but make this a story about Donald Trump is completely out of the mainstream and why these claims have gotten worse,” the former aide said. “Some reporters have taken these claims at face value, and it’s the reason this story is still out there.”
Wrong! The story is still out there due to the fact that Clinton cannot hold a speech without having a coughing fit that last for minutes. Let’s face it, Clinton isn’t as healthy as her staff would have everyone believe.
