Hillary suffers embarrassing cough attack; ‘finally choking on all the lies’

Powered by Topple

At a campaign stop in Iowa Monday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suffered a coughing fit during a speech.

Speaking to the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines, Clinton said, “You do talk a lot in this campaign,” as she gulped down water in an attempt to stop the choking. After popping a throat lozenge, Clinton continued the speech in a strained voice.

There was no sympathy to be found on social media, however, Twitter users did try to diagnose the candidate’s ailment…

The incident gave birth to new hashtags, as well.
