Why Is Hillary Afraid Of Water?



The real issue is chronic dehydration, exacerbated by her lung problem and Clinton’s reluctance to drink water, which has become a source of tension with her staff.

“She won’t drink water, and you try telling Hillary Clinton she has to drink water,” said a person in her orbit – who described a frenzied rehydration mission that included multiple bottles of water and Gatorade.

The Greek term for “fear of water” is “hydrophobia”.

  1. Mierda de toro:

    By the time her motorcade arrived at daughter Chelsea’s apartment, she was feeling better – and was given a big bottle of Gatorade. She didn’t rest much while there, one of the sources said, but played with her grandchildren and made more phone calls. Clinton was ready to head back to her house in Chappaqua after about an hour at the apartment – but she had to remain in place to wait for her traveling press pool – which had been penned in at Ground Zero — to arrive so they could witness her walk out to an SUV, under her own steam.

    Even before the episode, Clinton had suffered from a persistent hacking cough – and so did several members of her top staff, including Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, who was briefly hospitalized with a severe upper respiratory infection and dehydration last month.
    The campaign also moved to shut down reports by right-wing web sites speculating that Clinton may have infected her grandkids Charlotte and Aidan and a little girl she hugged on a Manhattan sidewalk on Sunday.

    “She is not contagious, she’s been told by her doctors,” Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon said during a round of TV interviews. “She was playing with her grandkids yesterday and they don’t have anything to worry about because she’s not contagious at this point.”

      Gatorade? It has been said that she requires “thickened” water which is normally used for someone who suffers from dysphagia. If she got Gatorade, there would be some major hurling.

    • kanaughty says:

      All i know is when i’ve been dehydrated plus heat stroke, it took me all day and night of rest, liquids, cool air to recover. And last time this happened to me i was in my 20’s. She’s in her 60’s, so not buying that she was over it in 90 minutes.

  3. Like everyone in the MSM, I am not a doctor but I play one on TeeVee.

    THIS is Bullsh*t: “By the time her motorcade arrived at daughter Chelsea’s apartment, she was feeling better – ”

    Unless they had a bag of fast-infusion Saline IV or glucose or something in the few miles from Ground Zero to Chelsea’s place.

    and if she were dehydrated enough that her legs COMPLETELY BUCKLED under her, a bottle of Gatorade…even a “Big Bottle” wasn’t gonna cut it.

    I really feel bad for her in a way. Whoever is “in charge” of protecting her HEALTH is doing a ROTTEN job and should be fired. As for the rest of it, I know she is a lying cheating scoundrel – but it’s time she backs off the bullshit and fires some folks.

    I also agree – she doesn’t give a rats ass about “The Presidency”. Have you even HEARD ANYONE talk about her “vision” for the country?

    Me neither.

    She just wants the historical “FIrst”.

    And I don’t think she is going to get it.

    • I’m no doctor either, but I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night. There are waaaaay too many holes in her story.

      When you watch the video from yesterday it was obvious that her fainting/having seizures is not unusual or shocking to her staff.

  4. …and still no ai. invite. I guess i an just too deplorable even for them…

    • votermom says:

      try with a different email address/service?

    • taw46 says:

      On Twitter send a DM to @getongab. Tell them you are missing your friends who are on Gab. Give them your email and thank them. That is what I did and I got an immediate invite. Try it!

    • lateblum says:

      Send a DM to Gab Support@getongab (and say) I’m seeking help to join gab.ai because #SpeakFreely
      Or use Andrew@torbahax somewhere in the direct message.
      It took me several tries to get the DM to actually work for me and then I was so excited that I forgot to send my email address. (hahaha)

    • mcnorman says:

      Twitter at gab support, that is how I got into the line. I tried and tried with different emails then I used the twitter gab support and within a few hours, I got a response and in.

    • 1539days says:

      It takes almost 2 weeks. Any more than that and there may be an issue.

    • Also, check your social inbox if you use gmail. And your spam box.

    • lateblum says:

      Right. What Lola said. I forgot that. I’m not a gmail user, but that is the email address that worked and I didn’t know about the “social” folder or mailbox. It was an accident that I even found it. But that’s where it was.
      Before I looked there, though, I got a DM from Gab.
      Keep trying.

  6. Ok…everyone on the innertubes was sayin’ yesterday that one of the women with HRC was her doctor. Does anyone know if that is true?

    • According to her campaign, no.

      According to her campaign.

      • thanks…because if it were…this made NO sense..

        but then…it is her campaign…

        ““Believe me, she was telling everybody in earshot that she was perfectly fine. We did make immediate attempts to get in touch with her physician, and so that’s why her physician was able to visit her soon after at her home a little bit later in the day,” Fallon said. “

        • OTOH, if they admitted that she had her physician traveling around with her that would raise more questions.

          The only quick treatment for severe dehydration is IV fluids. And who diagnosed that she was dehydrated? If she had a mild seizure she could fully recover within minutes.

        • mcnorman says:

          Lisa Bardack was with her yesterday. Team HRC doens’t understand that there are photos of Bardack with HRC. They are so late to the game. It makes sense that if she were ill and refusing to stay home, she would have her internal medicine physician with her. There are snaps of a quick neuro exam prior to her “event.” I am not a physician, but I work for a specialist. One that understands sinus venous thrombosis VERY well. I have several friends who work in the ENT field. They aren’t thinking pneumonia either. Like Carson subtly put it, she out to release the scans after the clot, a few months later when she was pronounced recovered and now. You can tell how permanent that damage is. Otherwise, it is all assumed.

          Now, there are those MDs like Jen Gunter an ob-gyn on twitter saying that there is nothing there. Then again, the vajayjay is far not even close to that brain so you can’t put much into what she says. The legit ones are neuro, otolaryngology and vascular neurology specialists that are very familiar with sinus venous thrombosis and what it means for the body. Milton Wolf tweeted yesterday about all the problems that can remain after an event like the one that Hillary had. He also gave the stats on recovery. It’s a nasty clot that you have a high chance of not recovering from.

      • mcnorman says:

        I would not want to admit that I was with her if I were her physician.

  8. This one brings back memories:

    • jeffhas says:

      Well, it’s a shame she’s taken already…

      • My Psycho Ex-Girlfriend tried to run me over a few times.

        Pro-tip: Never walk in front or in back of the vehicle she is driving. Stand next to something sturdy you can hide behind, like a tree or a concrete pillar. Avoid hiding behind or between other cars – she might ram them. Never assume “she wouldn’t dare”.

    • 49erDweet says:

      I’m so old when I had ex girl friends it would have taken a big setup from Pathé News to film her, so I just avoided being in the same county.

  9. Lulu says:

    “Hillary Clinton was headed to an emergency room following her sudden collapse during the Sept. 11 memorial ceremony — but ditched her NYPD escort and detoured to daughter Chelsea Clinton’s apartment to keep details of her medical treatment under wraps, The Post has learned.”

    “But a campaign operative decided to change course to avoid treatment by doctors, nurses or other medical workers who could leak details to reporters, a source said.”

    The entire campaign is trying to hide what a mess she is. This includes Hillary of course.

    • elliesmom says:

      Do you suppose they believed because Jed Bartlett got away with hiding he had MS until after he was elected, life would imitate “art”?

      • Lulu says:

        Probably for the staff since they are idiots. But their decision to NOT take her to an ER per SS regulations and directives is not only very dangerous it is another example of Hillary and her posse thumbing their nose at “rules”. If she had kicked the bucket they would have blamed the Secret Service for doing what they demanded.

        • taw46 says:

          How pathetic is she? She cares more about winning that damn prize than she does about risking her life. Way to show love for your family.

    • 49erDweet says:

      That makes sense. In a weird way.

    • Clinton’s campaign said she was later examined at her home in Chappaqua by her personal physician, who pronounced that she was “recovering nicely” after becoming “overheated and dehydrated” due to a bout of previously undisclosed pneumonia.

      How do you diagnose someone several hours later? What kind of medical tests were run?

      • mcnorman says:

        Unless they brought the big ass MRI van to her house I don’t think anything got run. If she had gone to the ER you better believe that they would have run a battery of exams that would probably tell a different story. There is a lot of speculation on the interwebs about the emails. How much of the personal stuff was also related to her health? This stuff doesn’t happen overnight.

      • taw46 says:

        And if her doctor was not with her, why would they go to Chelsea’s instead of the hospital? Who made that medical call?

  10. Mt.Laurel says:

    A kidney stone might help Hill rethink her aversion to water.

  11. now they are saying Sen. Schumer had “it” too…


  12. swanspirit says:

    Personal physicians have been known to be harmful to their patients. Michael Jackson and Prince had doctors whose care was very questionable. We the public need a second opinion.

    • lateblum says:

      Holy cow. Just from reading the time line of her health issues shows she needs to retire from public life and be a granny while she still has time and life. This is really quite scary to see. If she continues to pursue this First Woman POTUS thing, she could cost her grandchildren a grandmother and her daughter a mother. I wish she’d just step aside and show her family that they are important to her. I really do.

      • blowme0bama says:

        I had commented about this to Wifey a couple times over the last year, the most recent being probably sometime around the coughing episodes. Wife said, I didn’t understand. HRC has always been about power and money. Nothing is important to her aside from that. It’s just a difficult mindset for normal people to grasp.

      • lorac says:

        If she continues to pursue this First Woman POTUS thing, she could cost her grandchildren a grandmother and her daughter a mother.

        … or maybe it’s even more than that… she might be trying to win to avoid prosecution. If Trump wins, both she and Obama are vulnerable to prosecution. If Obama gets the DNC to put in one of his other stooges, only Hillary is vulnerable to prosecution (from Trump).

        • lateblum says:

          I never thought about it that way, but it’s a possibility that she is (thinking this). I hope it doesn’t cost her her health and possibly her life.

  13. SHV says:

    “her family that they are important to her.?????”
    That’s a first. Bill raised Chelsea, famous story in Little Rock is that when Chelsea was injured at school, Hillary was called and she said I’m busy, call Bill.

  14. Scott Adams:

    All by itself, the “deplorable” gaffe wouldn’t be much of an issue in the long run. Clinton had time to apologize and recover from it.

    But then Clinton collapsed with some sort of health problem – perhaps pneumonia – at the 9-11 anniversary event. The optics of a potential commander-in-chief collapsing at that holy place, and on an important anniversary, rendered her unelectable in my opinion. I base that prediction on how people will associate her health issues with the need to have a reliable commander-in-chief. Persuasion-wise, that’s a hole you don’t get out of.

    But the 9-11 situation had another impact that I didn’t realize until today. It weaponized Clinton’s earlier gaffe about the deplorables by turning it into what I call a “fake because.” Sometimes you need a “fake because” to rationalize whatever you are doing. And that’s doubly-important in this situation. Here’s why.

    In our rational minds, we are good people who use data and reason to arrive at our decisions. We need to maintain that untrue self-image to stay happy. Clinton’s collapse at the 9-11 event creates an uncomfortable dissonance in us. On one hand, we don’t think anyone should be penalized for a minor illness. And we don’t wish harm on anyone. Our rational minds want to NOT care that Clinton collapsed on the 9-11 anniversary. That’s who we are. We’re rational people who can put stuff like this in context.

    But in our irrational minds – the part that actually makes decisions – we really, really don’t want a commander-in-chief who is so frail that she might sneeze-fart herself to death in the Situation Room. Realistically, and rationally, we know that isn’t a real problem.

    But…it…feels…like one.

    And that’s what matters. We want to act on that feeling, but it conflicts with our self-image as nice people. That causes cognitive dissonance. The way out of your dissonance is to find a “fake because.” You need to latch onto some sort of rational-sounding reason that passes the sniff test.

    And so you look to Clinton’s “deplorable” comment and find your “fake because.” She insulted voters, you say! It’s just like Romney’s 47% gaffe, you say! She’s acting unpresidential, you say!

    Any reasonable person knows Clinton was making her usual point about Trump attracting an unsavory bunch of supporters. She just worded it in a funny way (and it was funny) but it blew up in her face. There is no story here.

    All by itself, the “basket of deplorable” gaffe was more funny than damaging. But coming as it did so near to Clinton’s health problem, it turns into a handy “fake because.”

    The existence of a “fake because” frees the undecideds. It gives them an issue they can understand – as opposed to international trade deals, for example – and it gives them a “reason” for their change: They can say they want a president who supports all Americans, even the deplorable ones.

    When Clinton collapsed at the 9-11 site, that was enough to end her chances of winning. But adding the “fake because” to her “deplorable” comment will super-charge whatever was going to happen anyway.

    • This morning on NPR they were doing their typical Spin/ Damage Control and flat out said that Trump had been setting her up for months because he knew…he KNEW…that the heat of the campaign could make anyone swoon/ faint. And he was just waiting for this moment.

      And I just thought…well, y’all just sold him as observant & prescient. I know you were going for monster, but hey.

  15. jennifer lyn says:

    Lots of red flags. They violently throw her in van as if her life didn’t matter. She did not go to hospital. She tried to hug that baby on the street later knowing she was sick. Whole thing reeks of bad bad juju. Something is not okay in Hillaryville. Something is stinky stinky stinky. Concerns me a bit but what can we do but wait for the next episode. STILL BEST ELECTION EVER!

    “Why Is Hillary Afraid Of Water?”

    Maybe it makes the gin taste funny.

  18. mothy67 says:

    Hillaryis44 has been saying o would take down clinton. Today they/he/she/zir they are saying its mooch to the rescue.

  19. mothy67 says:

    Bill said she had repeated bouts of dydration. She is supposed to run the country when she can’t tke care of her basic health.

    • There was the time she got dehydrated and fell and broke her arm. Then there was the time she got dehydrated and fell and hit her head. Then there was the time she got dehydrated and accidentally wiped her server.

  20. Hillbot: “You shouldn’t speculate without all the information!”

    Me: “If we had all the information it wouldn’t be speculation.”

  21. taw46 says:

    Milo thinks he will get his Twitter account back (has to do with UK laws Twitter is subject to). If he does, he said he will probably send one last tweet: “Go fuck yourself, Jack”.

    Also gave a shout out to Gab and its free speech. So now, Gab will probably get swamped with requests, lol. Loved Milo tonight.

  24. kanaughty says:

    If she’s on prednisone it may make her have to go pee more often. So she may think drinking water will make her have to go even more often? Idk:/

  25. DandyTIger says:

    All the progs I know seem to be losing their shit. Kind of fun to watch.

  26. SHV says:

    A house a few blocks away always has yards signs, Obama x2 cycles then all summer Bernie signs then changed to Hillary. MIL, who was cat sitting this weekend, mentioned that the Hillary signs disappeared yesterday.

  27. Jim Thomas says:

    Repeatedly dehydrated; multiple “fainting” events and serious falls as a result. Against medical and collegial advice, still refuses to drink water. The words that come to mind for such behavior are foolhardy, arrogant, heedless, reckless, careless, oblivious, overconfident, dogmatic, egotistical, smug, self-destructive, or maybe just plain ‘ol stupid. Frustrating behavior for a 4-year old. For a 69-year old Presidential candidate, disqualifying behavior.
