Memo to Bill: When you’re in a hole, trying to make excuses for Hillary’s health thing? Stop digging!

If Bill Clinton thought he was helping his wife, he should probably stop.

The former president shared that Hillary Clinton has “on more than one occasion” become severely dehydrated and experienced “the same sort of thing” that happened when she appeared to have fainted leaving a 9/11 event Sunday.

“Rarely, on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing’s happened to her when she got severely dehydrated, and she’s worked like a demon, as you know, as secretary of state, as a senator, and in the years since,” Clinton told Charlie Rose in an interview clip that aired on CBS News on Monday.


“She had two-and-a-half hard days before the day when she got dizzy,” Clinton said. “Today she made a decision, which I think was correct, to cancel her campaign day to take one more day to rest.”

Reaction on social media focused on the revelation that the dehydration and fainting was not a first for the Democratic presidential nominee.
