In this 2016 election paradigm of memes and sound bites, the Basket of Deplorables has rapidly given way to the Medical Episode.
As in, it appears Hillary seems to had some issues during the 9/11 ceremony in New York City this morning.
Now that eyes are turned upon her, I suspect that many Medical Episodes which might have slipped by unnoticed in the past will now catch the attention of people just because Hillary is turning into a health trainwreck of epic proportions (for good reason or not). This incident might have been “unseen” otherwise.
Hillary Clinton had a “medical episode” that required her to leave a 9/11 commemoration ceremony early, a law enforcement source who witnessed the event told Fox News.

The Democratic presidential nominee appeared to faint on her way into her van and had to be helped by her security, the source said. She was “clearly having some type of medical episode.”
Clinton’s stumbled off the curb, her “knees buckled” and she lost a shoe as she was helped into a van during her “unexpected early departure,” a witness told Fox News.
And this is where Clinton’s handlers and Democratic campaign are traipsing into totalitarian Information Control mode. If they are not strong-arming the media into ignoring her Medical Episodes, they are now denying reality and distorting (by failing to acknowledge the obvious) events.
The Clinton campaign would not confirm Clinton’s location to an NBC pool producer. After Clinton left the ceremony, the reporters following her on the campaign trail were prevented from leaving the media area for a period of time.
