Rand Paul Says Clinton Has ‘Significant Health Problems,’ But Can’t Name Them

rand-paulSen. Rand Paul (R-KY) assured pro-Trump media outlet Breitbart that Hillary Clinton has “significant health problems” though he was unable to explain exactly what those problems were.

“I think she has some significant health problems–I don’t know what they are,” he said.

Paul was skeptical of Clinton’s pneumonia diagnosis, which her campaign made public last week after she apparently collapsed at a 9/11 memorial ceremony. “Her losing consciousness, there, which by all appearances she did lose consciousness, is not something commonly associated with pneumonia,” Paul, a practicing eye doctor, said.

He also noted that it was problematic that her campaign did not disclose the diagnosis sooner.

Paul, a former Republican presidential candidate who dropped out of the race in February, gave his opinion exclusively to Breitbart, whose former executive chairman Steve Bannon left the company last month to lead Donald Trump‘s campaign.
