Hillary Clinton suffers from consequences of the head injury, according to her rival Donald Trump and other supporters of the Republican Party.

On August 16 and during the following conference on an Aug. 20 Trump claimed that Hillary Clinton does not have enough physical and mental stamina to become a President. These words got the support in the Internet. “Right-wing” websites published documents that said Clinton has problems with her health because of the concussion that happened in 2012. Republican supporters also used online-videos with the former State Secretary’s speeches to support their theory.

Suggestions about Clinton’s health issues were made by Rudolph Giuliani and some of the Trump’s campaign’s officials. For example, the politician’s national spokeswoman Katrina Pierson mentioned the diagnose “dysphasia”, a consequence of the brain injury that causes partial or complete inability to communicate verbally. Marc Siegel, who works as a medical correspondent for Fox News, thought about the “aphasia”, when a person suddenly can’t find right words because of the brain trauma. And a co-founder of Women Vote Trump, Amy Kremer leaned to the diagnose CTE or the chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

All these diagnoses were rejected by Democrats. Clinton’s physician Lisa Bardack, whose signature appeared on mentioned documents, highlighted they were falsified and doesn’t contain the true information. The doctor accented the Democratic nominee is in an excellent condition and doesn’t have any health issues that could stop her from becoming a president.

The Clinton campaign slammed Trump’s comments as a subterfuge.

“While it is dismaying to see the Republican nominee for president push deranged conspiracy theories in a foreign policy speech, it’s no longer surprising,” Jennifer Palmieri, the Clinton campaign’s communications director, said in a statement. “Donald Trump is simply parroting lies.”

Hillary Clinton’s husband’s foundation can be closed

The Boston Globe has called for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to immediately cut donations to the Clinton Foundation, and then shut down the non-profit if she becomes president.

Clinton continued her work at the Clinton Foundation while serving as secretary of state in the Obama administration. Released emails seem to indicate she wasn’t able to keep her roles adequately separate.

The damage caused by the fluidity between roles would be unbelievably magnified, were she to become president.
