Rules for Monday’s presidential debate are reportedly in – and could spell disaster for Hillary

Hillary Clinton better pray all of her “pneumonia” symptoms are gone.

New rules for Monday’s debate between the Democrat presidential nominee and Donald Trump have been revealed and they don’t favor any candidate who might not be in top health, according to the Drudge Report.

“There are no commercial breaks,” a commission source told Drudge. “Period.”

This may not bode well for the former first lady, who was late to the debate stage for an extended “bathroom break” in December. With speculation surrounding Hillary’s health, these rules could prove to be very difficult for her.

Lester Holt, who will serve as the moderator, does not have the authority to cut away from the stage at any time for any reason and the microphone audio for the candidates is not to be manipulated, according to Drudge.

Another possible blow to Hillary who suffers from recurrent coughing spells.

Drudge reported the following:

Clinton has experienced severe coughing episodes throughout the election year. During a Labor Day campaign stop she suffered a 4-minute choking marathon.

Monday’s throw down could top out at 100 million viewers, making it the biggest political event in history.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The presidential debate commission settled an early flash point when Clinton demanded a step-stool at the podium to add height to her 5’4″ frame. Campaign Chairman John Podesta expressed concern that Hillary would be dwarfed by 6’2″ Trump. The request was quickly rejected. The commission is allowing for a custom-made podium, which will accommodate the difference in stature.
