As the Clinton campaign go full court press to spin Hillary as a hard-worker who battled through (non-contagious) pneumonia to hug little kids, it appears the US public will have to assign Colin Powell to the basket of deplorables that question Hillary’s health…
Amid the clusterfuck of emails leaked by Guccifer 2.0 overnight was this little gem. Colin Powell and billionaire mega-donor Jeffrey Leeds discuss Hillary’s health in March 2015…
“Sheldon Whitehouse, who is a huge Clinton supporter, said they were both giving speeches at the same event a few months back and she could barely climb the podium steps,” Leeds wrote.
As BizPacreview adds, Powell responded with what seemed to be a show of empathy.
“On HD tv she doesn’t look good,” he wrote. “She is working herself to death.”
Powell went on to talk about Clinton’s hectic schedule, which included flying from the East Coast to San Francisco for a “paid gig at E-Bay” and a “money dinner for the Clinton Foundation,” and then back the next day.
“… She will turn 70 her first year in office,” Powell added, apparently convinced that she will prevail in the November election.
That Clinton appeared to be running herself ragged in pursuit of the almighty dollar didn’t seem to faze Powell.
Fang also shared intimate details on Powell’s relationship with Leeds:

“She could barely climb the podium steps”… “On HDTV she does not look good”… hardly the “it’s probably nothing” narrative the Clinton campaign would like America to believe.. and that was 18 months ago.
