Speaking to MSNBC’s Kristen Welker Thursday afternoon, Trump’s national spokesperson Katrina Pierson parroted the unfounded conspiracy theories and baseless claims about Hillary Clinton‘s poor health and even went so far as to diagnose her with dysphasia on the air.
Pierson cited vague “reports of observations of Hillary Clinton’s behavior and mannerisms.” She then referred to Clinton’s “dysphasia, the fact that she has fallen, she has had a concussion.”
Karl Rove years ago began pushing the idea that Clinton suffered brain damage as the result of a 2012 fall, and that theory was exhumed on Fox & Friends Thursday morning.
This follows days of Fox’s most reliable Trump booster Sean Hannity incessantly broadcasting Internet conspiracy nonsense about Clinton’s physical well-being, while images of fraudulent medical records have been circulated allegedly proving her poor health.
