While Hillary Clinton denies having underlying health issues that caused her to collapse at a September 11th commemoration ceremony, LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham suggested the Democratic nominee has an “allergy to transparency.”
Ingraham believes the Democratic presidential nominee’s tactic of hiding from the media is reminiscent of “the Arkansas days” of both Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Clinton “has an allergy to transparency. They both do. And it’s like they have ADDD. They have an ‘Attack, Denial, and Deflection Disorder.’ Every time they’re asked a question that’s inconvenient, it’s attack the questioner, deny, deny, deny, and deflect to something else.”
Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in an interview Monday evening that she’s collapsed like that “really only twice,” as far as she can recall.
“I felt dizzy and I did lose my balance for a minute, but once I got in [to the van on Sunday], once I could sit down, once I could cool off, once I had some water, I immediately started feeling better,” Clinton said.
However, earlier Monday evening, in an interview with Charlie Rose, Bill Clinton contradicted his wife by stating she experienced this problem multiple times over the years, Ingraham pointed out, while adding that Hillary was not adequately questioned on CNN.
“The follow-up question that [Anderson Cooper] did not ask is, What is this diagnosis and is it just you have perpetual dehydration? … What is this underlying condition? Why wasn’t protocol followed?”
Ingraham also questioned why the media and the American people were “kept in the dark” about Hillary’s health. “How is it not a big deal to have pneumonia when you’re walking around, hugging people shaking hands?” she asked.
