Reporter goes there: asks Hillary if she needs neurological exam for dementia

Powered by Topple

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton granted a local Tampa Bay, Florida reporter an exclusive one-in-one interview Wednesday that she now probably wishes she didn’t do.

The reporter, WFTS-TV ABC Action News anchor Sabrina Fazan, got push-back when pressed on the need for a neurological examination to test for dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Topics discussed by the candidate Fazan included the economy, terrorism and the former secretary of state’s health, and she was told that physicians are concerned about both candidates on the last issue, because of their age.

“Would you be willing to do that?” Kazan asked.

Clinton laughed and changed the subject to her recent bout with pneumonia.

“I am very sorry I got pneumonia,” she said, referring to her recent bout with the lung ailment. “I’m very glad that antibiotics took care of it. And that’s behind us now.”

“I am physically, mentally healthy and fit to be president of the United States,” Clinton assured Fazan, but the reporter wasn’t about to be dismissed so easily.

“Would you be willing to take those tests, though?” she asked.

“There’s no need for that,” Clinton claimed. “The information is very clear. The information, as I said, meets the standards that anybody running for president has ever had to meet.”

But then again, no other candidate has exhibited the odd acts of behavior than Clinton has, rousing the concerns of medical professionals.
