‘Bitch Can Hardly Stand Up’: Trump Ally Roger Stone Alleges Clinton Health Crisis

roger-stone-via-lev-radin-and-shutterstock-247x162-2-650x427Early Tuesday morning Trump ally Roger Stone blasted “libtards” for alleging that he had concocted rumors about Hillary Clinton‘s poor health, observing that the “Bitch can hardly stand up.”

Stone cited an email in which Clinton supposedly “asked for medication for Parkinson’s Disease.” No such email exists.

In far-right conservative circles, where rumors of Clinton’s secret health crisis have circulated for years, many identify a smoking gun in a 2011 email from Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. The missive was sent to Clinton from then-State Department Director of Policy Planning Jake Sullivan. In the email, Sullivan relays some information about the prescription drug Provigil, which is used to treat fatigue. Sullivan’s email describes it as a “pick-me-up” that’s more practical than traditional stimulants since it doesn’t carry the same risk of addiction. (Snopes has a lengthy post debunking the claim that Clinton is afflicted with Parkinson’s.)

Stone was formerly an adviser to the Trump campaign. He stepped down in Aug. 2015 and has since served to waft and promote fringe conspiracy theories against Trump’s opponents, including (but not nearly limited to) floating the notion that Chelsea Clinton is not Bill’s daughter and perpetuating the falsehood that Obama was not born in the U.S. (even after Trump came around on that issue). He has repeatedly claimed to be communicating with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as the organization continues to release emails stolen from the Clinton campaign.
