On June 10, 2016 at a coffee house in Washington DC Hillary Clinton was speaking with reporters when she suddenly started jerking her head around like a broken bobble-head doll.
The poor woman is in worse shape than we thought.
The video was very disturbing.
Do Not try this at home alone!

AP reporter Lisa Lerer was totally alarmed by the disturbing incident.
This was one of many incidents the past few months that has pushed Hillary Clinton’s poor health into the spotlight.
Today an AP hack came rushing in to defend the media’s favorite candidate.
Lisa Lerer posted this ‘editorial‘ this morning defending poor Hillary.
(You will all enjoy this. I promise.)
I’ve never been part of a conspiracy theory. Now, video of my surprised facial expression has become Exhibit A in the latest unfounded speculation about Hillary Clinton.
It starts with Clinton’s visit to a muffin shop in Washington on June 10, five days before the District of Columbia’s Democratic primary. The then-presumptive Democratic nominee popped in for a photo op with Mayor Muriel Bowser and other officials supporting her campaign.
As an Associated Press reporter who’s spent more than a year covering her candidacy, I was there for her appearance. After she ordered herself a “cold chai,” my colleagues and I shouted some questions, mostly about Clinton’s recent meeting with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Perhaps eager to avoid answering or maybe just taken aback by our volume, Clinton responded with an exaggerated motion, shaking her head vigorously for a few seconds. Video of the moment shows me holding out my recorder in front of her, laughing and stepping back in surprise. After the exchange, she took a few more photos, exited the shop and greeted supporters waiting outside.
Two months later, that innocuous exchange has become the fodder for one of some Trump supporters’ most popular conspiracy theories: her failing health. Where I saw evasiveness, they see seizures.
Stringing the footage together with shots of Clinton seeming to get help going up stairs, they pressed the case that Clinton has health issues serious enough to disqualify her from the presidency. The hashtag? #HillaryHealth.
“Wow! Did Hillary Clinton Just Suffer a Seizure on Camera?” asked Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit on July 23, more than a month after that day at the muffin shop.
Much of such speculation about the state of Clinton’s health stems from a concussion she sustained in December 2012 after fainting, an episode her doctor has attributed to a stomach virus and dehydration. During the course of her treatment, she was found to have a blood clot in a vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.
To recover, Clinton spent a few days in New York-Presbyterian Hospital and took a month-long absence from the State Department for treatment…
…Clinton’s campaign didn’t comment on the latest round of speculation.
That hasn’t stopped plenty of people online. After the video appeared on cable news, my Twitter feed exploded. One commenter compared me to actress Shelley Duvall from the horror movie “The Shining.”
The conservative Fox News host Sean Hannity opened a 6-minute Thursday night segment titled “Hillary’s Health” by saying, “as speculation swirls about Hillary Clinton’s health,” citing a headline from the right-wing news site Drudge Report.
Read the rest here.
Lerer today insists she was not concerned about Hillary at the time.
Unfortunately, photos tell a different story.
It was a good move by the AP not to include any photos with this report.
Hillary Clinton took the day off today from the campaign trail.
She is exhausted.
