Brazile: Hillary 9/11 wobble sparked talk of replacing her

Brazile: Hillary 9/11 wobble sparked talk of replacing her

Publicly Dems downplayed what everyone saw on video, privately Dem insiders were worried

During the 2016 campaign, there had been a lot of social media speculation about Hillary Clinton’s health. That speculation was ridiculed as conspiracy theories and fake news.

But when Hillary stumbled and almost fell during the 9/11 memorial, the conspiracy theories didn’t seem so conspiratorial anymore. We all remember the infamous video, Clinton Collapse: Hillary rushed away from 9-11 ceremony:

This weekend has been a very challenging one for Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

Yesterday we covered the impact of her poorly chosen phrase, “basket of deplorables”, in social media.

Today, she was rushed away from a 9-11 ceremony after what is being termed a “medical episode.

Fox News reporter Rick Leventhal, on hand to cover the ceremony, stated that she had to be helped into the vehicle by her detail and offers some witness accounts:

Fox News reporter Rick Levanthal said one person told him her knees buckled as she stepped off of a curb.

She also appeared to lose a shoe as she walked into the vehicle.

Though the day is not being reported as particularly warm in New York City, the Clinton campaign states that the candidate was “overheated” and is now recovering at her daughter’s apartment.

This trimmed clip showed the key moment as Hillary shook in what appeared to be near-convulsions:

Publicly, Democrats pretended that what everyone witnessed on the video was a big nothing, with shifting explanations and excuses:

But privately, top Democrats wondered if Hillary needed to be replaced on the ticket. That’s yet another revelation (after disclosing how Hillary secretly controlled the DNC during the primaries) in the new book by former DNC Chair Donna Brazile.

The Washington Post reports:

Former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile writes in a new book that she seriously contemplated replacing Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee with then-Vice President Biden in the aftermath of Clinton’s fainting spell, in part because Clinton’s campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.”

In an explosive new memoir, Brazile details widespread dysfunction and dissension throughout the Democratic Party, including secret deliberations over using her powers as interim DNC chair to initiate the process of removing Clinton and running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) from the ticket after Clinton’s Sept. 11, 2016, collapse in New York City.

Brazile details the campaign cover up and how the vultures started circling:

Brazile describes in wrenching detail Clinton’s bout with pneumonia. On Sept. 9, she saw the nominee backstage at a Manhattan gala and she seemed “wobbly on her feet” and had a “rattled cough.” Brazile recommended Clinton see an acupuncturist.

Two days later, Clinton collapsed as she left a Sept. 11 memorial service at Ground Zero in New York. Brazile blasts the campaign’s initial efforts to shroud details of her health as “shameful.” …

If a nominee became disabled, she explains, the party chair would oversee a complicated process of filling the vacancy that would include a meeting of the full DNC.

After Clinton’s fainting spell, some Democratic insiders were abuzz with talk of replacing her — and Brazile says she was giving it considerable thought.

The morning of Sept. 12, Brazile got a call from Biden’s chief of staff saying the vice president wanted to speak with her. She recalls thinking, “Gee, I wonder what he wanted to talk to me about?” Jeff Weaver, campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), called, too, to set up a call with his boss, and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley sent her an email.

Brazile also was paid a surprise visit in her DNC office by Baker, who, she writes, was dispatched by the Clinton campaign “to make sure that Donna didn’t do anything crazy.”

“Again and again I thought about Joe Biden,” Brazile writes. But, she adds, “No matter my doubts and my fears about the election and Hillary as a candidate, I could not make good on that threat to replace her.”

No doubt there is more, a lot more, to the Hillary health problems than we likely ever will know. Something just didn’t seem right about her, and still doesn’t. This story of her latest fall doesn’t add up, Hillary Clinton breaks toe after falling down stairs during her London book tour:

Clinton, who had to cancel several interviews on Monday, appeared on “The Graham Norton Show” with a protective walking boot on her right foot.

“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards,” she said.

“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe,” Clinton continued, going on to say she received “excellent care” from the U.K.’s publicly funded healthcare system.

Hillary “running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand” while “talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards.”

Take any part of that sentence and it’s absurd, taken together it’s a metaphor for Hillary Clinton’s life and campaign.

to the full extent allowed by law.


Telling lies about this event lead to rampant speculation. The most astounding part of this is that she was taken to Chelsea Clinton’s apartment afterward; not a hospital. Then surrogates were sent out to lie about what had happened. I think that Brazille herself probably didn’t know what was wrong and the Clinton camp was not divulging any information to the DNC much less the public.

    snopercod in reply to Guein. | November 5, 2017 at 5:12 am

    I can just imagine the conversation that went on in that black van. SS: Ma’am, let’s take you to the hospital to get checked out. Hillary: Hell no you stupid f*ck! That would confirm that I have a medical problem.

Donna already replaced Clinton once before, in 2008, when she stole her delegates and gave them to Obama.

Not surprising she’d do it again.

The story Donna’s telling now is pure CYA and allegiance to the Rice, Holder, Jarrett triumvirate.

Donna’s crying victim and complaining she felt like a “slave” to curry sympathy. Really, she’s just trying to cover her ample a$$ and kick Clinton to the curb as she’s been doing for the past decade.

(Not that I sympathize with HRC in the slightest).

Just pointing out Donna’s dirty. Check out clips of the 2008 Rules and By-Laws Committee Meeting which she presided over and during which the Dem rules were rewritten on the spot to gift Obama delegates he needed while stripping them from Clinton.

This is just a move to protect the POS.

    Colonel Travis in reply to wyntre. | November 4, 2017 at 9:05 pm

    Perhaps. All I know is that for the first time I see a public fracture between the Clintons and the (D) party, and I am crossing my fingers that it turns into the Mariana Trench and Bill and Hillary sink to the bottom of it.

    austin in reply to wyntre. | November 5, 2017 at 1:30 am

    when Brazile was confronted with the email telling Clinton about questions she would be asked she whined:

    “As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false,” the operative said.

    “Podesta’s emails were stolen. You’re like the thief that what’s to bring into the night what you found in the gutter,” she continued.”

    Bazile is a lying slimy POS…

    gonzotx in reply to wyntre. | November 5, 2017 at 1:31 am

    Correct! I remember you from other blogs such as NQ, where the heck is Larry, and hillaryis44, if I am not mistaken.

    That is when many of us supported Hillary, before we “knew”…it was outrageous but started me on the path to being an Independent voter and the PUMA movement.

    Donna also put in her book she feared for her life after Seth Rich was killed. Donna really does know how Hillary Clinton rolls!

At least D.B. is sticking loyally to the script so far as the “pneumonia” is concerned.

GeorgeCrosley | November 4, 2017 at 8:57 pm

I know it’s cruel of me to say, but that clip never gets old. It seems even better now, knowing that Hillary lost, than it did when it happened.

    herm2416 in reply to GeorgeCrosley. | November 5, 2017 at 9:19 am

    What always amazes me is the people surrounding her. They have seen this before; not one ruffled feather among them.

    Not cruel at all: hillary clinton is corrupt traitor, a destroyer of the victimized and a malignant tumor on our nation.

    Syndicated re-runs of her being burned at the stake would be would out-sell Seinfeld.

    Sessions will, of course, recuse himself.

Though the day is not being reported as particularly warm in New York City

I was there. It wasn’t.

DouglasJBender | November 4, 2017 at 9:07 pm

I think it’s more likely Hillary broke her toes from kicking Bill in his chastity belt.

I ain’t in no ways feeling tired.

rustyshamrock | November 4, 2017 at 9:22 pm

If you’re running down the stairs, and your heel catches (all the other details being irrelevant and excess explanation – a tell of a fabricated story), you fall FORWARD down the stairs, not backward. And in either case how does your toe get broken? Smh

1. Hillary doesn’t run
2. Hillary doesn’t carry her own coffee
3. Hillary doesn’t wear heels.
4. Hillary appears to be a barely functioning. closeted binge drinker

    Granny in reply to murkyv. | November 5, 2017 at 5:07 am

    Even if Hillary did run, did carry her own coffee while running downstairs and did do so in high heels nobody ever falls UP the stairs while running down them, she would have broken her face, arm or shoulder when she fell rather than her toe and nobody gets crutches (never mind the ones that wrap around your arms) for a broken toe.

    Having broken my own toes a number of times over the years and had my children do the same, I can confidently say that there is one other thing to consider: Save something extremely heavy landing on your toe with sufficient force to break it (a cup of coffee wouldn’t do it) nobody ever breaks their toe while wearing shoes.

      rustyshamrock in reply to Granny. | November 5, 2017 at 9:53 am

      Hillary HAS been known to lose her shoe(s) when falling, but otherwise agree.

      Rick the Curmudgeon in reply to Granny. | November 5, 2017 at 12:32 pm

      Has anyone ever broken a toe while kicking an immovable object?
      Knowing Hil’s temperament, that would be a story I’d buy.

It’s funny to watch other media covered for her. They are such hacks. I no longer believe a word they say. There was a time that you could read between the lines like Pravda, but now it’s all pure fiction.

    Ragspierre in reply to Fen. | November 4, 2017 at 10:17 pm

    And yet, here you are crediting the WaPo and Donna Brazile without qualification.

    Irony, again, abounds.

    The view always is seen through your tribal goggles. But you COULD take them off…

      Colonel Travis in reply to Ragspierre. | November 4, 2017 at 10:56 pm

      So the MSM says everything with Hillary was hunky dory and someone who actually worked with her says – no, it was not. And to you, neither of these options is viable. Makes zero sense.

      You’re saying that The Post cannot be believed by Fen because of Fen’s original assertion about how untrustworthy the MSM are in general? Tell me what happened: did The Post through its gritty reporting find this Hillary dirt on its own and squeeze Donna Brazile to confirm it? Or did The Post do this story about Donna Brazile’s accusations because Donna Brazile wrote a book that cannot be ignored because of her position in the (D) party?

      If you can show us how the MSM had gone after Hillary Clinton in the past year with comparable, serious charges that Donna Brazile made, without Donna Brazile’s book or any other crutch, you might have a point. That hasn’t happened. Hillary’s book tour has been nothing but a love fest because the MSM and (D) party are kissing cousins.

      Might want to check your own goggles.

        Ragspierre in reply to Colonel Travis. | November 5, 2017 at 3:19 am

        “So the MSM says everything with Hillary was hunky dory and someone who actually worked with her says – no, it was not. And to you, neither of these options is viable. Makes zero sense.”

        That would be true, though your depiction of what I said has no truth in it.

        You seem to have a thing for me, Pvt. Piles. Back the fluck off.

          4th armored div in reply to Ragspierre. | November 5, 2017 at 10:25 am

          you seriously need to see a shrink – is there anyone in the whole wide world who isn’t attacking you.

          you make me wonder, because you make sense many times in your posting, but most of the time you’re just an argumentative JERK.

          why do you even bother coming here, since you are SO MUCH SMARTER THAN THE REST OF US /sarc.

          Colonel Travis in reply to Ragspierre. | November 5, 2017 at 7:29 pm

          I cannot read your mind, which is why I asked you questions. You refused to answer, I still do not understand why you said what you did.

          I’ve upvoted you many times and you’ve never known it. No clue why you have such an inconsistent intellect.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | November 5, 2017 at 9:47 pm

          I’ll give you this, Pvt. Piles…

          you are one of THE most adroit liars here. Sort of reminds me of someone. We’ll watch and see…

“she seemed “wobbly on her feet” and had a “rattled cough.” Brazile recommended Clinton see an acupuncturist.”

That’s not a time for half measures; recommend a full course of placebos.

Obama left the DNC in debt and Hillary bailed them out. There’s no way in hell they would have been able to replace her.

“Donna The Prima Donna”

Donna, Donna the Prima Donna
Broke my heart
We’re apart
Thinks she’s smart

I met a girl a month ago
I thought that she would love me so
But in time I realized
She had a pair of roving eyes

I remember the nights we dated
Always acting sophisticated
Talking about high society
Then she tried to make a fool out of me

Hillary’s new campaign song.

I’m with sanddog, there is no way in hell Hillary would have been replaced! Can you imagine the ammunition that would have given Trump? He would have gone ballistic on the Clinton covering democrat propaganda machine and pointed out at his rallies, you know, the campaign events that were being sold out across the country while school kids were being bussed in to Clinton’s events, how right he was and how corrupted the media was in favour of Clinon.

No way on hell they were ever going to replace her…not while they had the media complicit in covering up everything wrong with Clinton’s health!!

So given the Democrats had EVERYTHING going in their favour one does have to ask the question of just what are the Democrats so afraid of to be throwing her highness under the bus so publicly?

I am beginning to think that the Democrats are enjoying Hillary’s fall from grace even more than the Republicans.

here is how you fall UP the stairs. I was navigating stairs carrying an 8mo old son, my heel slipped off the carpeted stair and I SAT down VERY HARD on the stairs above my feet. I did not fall forward and I did not injure feet or toes, I broke my coccyx.

    Valerie in reply to sdharms. | November 5, 2017 at 7:55 am

    People who fall when holding a baby do all kinds of damage to themselves, first. A cup of coffee won’t have the same effect. I’ll bet your baby was fine, though.

I was born, just not yesterday and the idea that Donna Brazile suddenly developed a conscience and decided to tell the truth just doesn’t meet the smell test.

More like she want to sell books. Greed as a motive is usually the right one if power is not. And Brazile has zero chance of ever getting any power again.

Bitterlyclinging | November 5, 2017 at 8:07 am

How much does the DNC still owe Hillary and/or the Hillary Campaign?
Is all the current sound and fury just the DNC’s maneuvering for position to welch on that debt?
If the DNC has proved anything at all, its proved just how mendacious, nefarious and corrupt the DNC is.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | November 5, 2017 at 9:06 am

Not buying it. HRC effectively bought control of the DNC and looted it of it’s money for her campaign’s benefit; used that money and campaign money to pay a law firm to buy disinformation from the Russians to market to American journalists to hurt Trump; and per Wikileaks, used the “Pied Piper” strategy to try to influence who her Republican opponent would be (she believed Trump, Cruz and Carson would be easiest to beat).

HRC is corrupt and ruthless. I can’t believe that Brazile had the balls to even consider getting into a power struggle with HRC and her mafia to try to take the nomination away.

Hillary “running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand” while “talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards.”

Dontcha see? She was doing everything a man could do, but backwards and in high heels, just like Ginger Rogers!
She’s so brave! And yet somehow, just like us!

‘It has been said that a “special Providence watches over children, drunkards, and the United States.” ‘

an old 200+ years, but accurate – how else to explain that in our time of need, in order to correct the ship of state,
that Trump (with all his many faults) has become our POTUS.

the dangers are many and the ha;f the population seems oblivious, that a strong willed captain will see us through these shoals.

G-D bless us and protect us from disaster.

As I stated before here in another topic, this is all about “Moving on” and getting rid of hillary from the DNC. Brazile is just the messenger and anything she says publicly or in her book must be looked at skeptically. To me, the larger issue is that if this series of illegal actions taken by hillary and her minions are not investigated and prosecuted, the American people will lose all respect for the institutions that should be doing their jobs. The IRS is one such agency that has plummeted in trustworthiness. Now the FBI is on the slippery slope of the same fate. We simply will not accept the “Business as usual” BS.

Bucky Barkingham | November 5, 2017 at 11:35 am

According to previous revelations from Brazille Hilary basically owned the DNC because of the financial arrangements they agreed. So how exactly would they replace her? Not suI find her claim credible.

In today’s Wiilie Brown column he opined that since Hillary bailed out a broke DNC and like any bailout of any business, her take-over of the DNC was justified and it was hers to do with as she pleased.

On another topic he commented on a growing homeless camp outside the Civic Auditorium, one of his favorite venues. He finally said what SF politicos have been too timid or PC to say: The City should be humiliated.

It’s hard to tell how much to trust what Donna Brazile says. With regard to Hillary’s health, what difference, at this point, does it make? But I’m still curious to know what’s wrong with her.
