Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, personal physician to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton released a statement Sunday afternoon in the wake of Clinton’s attack of light-headedness during a morning ceremony remembering the victims of the terror attacks of Sep. 11, 2001.

CNN’s Dan Merica posted a section from Bardack’s statement on Twitter.

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” the physician wrote. “On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics and advised to rest and modify her schedule.”

“While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely,” Bardack concluded.

This morning’s incident has kicked off a fever of ghoulish speculation from conservatives eager to seize on any sign that their candidate might get an edge on the former Secretary of State, even if that means cheering for her illness and death.

After leaving the ceremony and taking a few minutes to compose herself in daughter Chelsea Clinton’s Manhattan apartment, the candidate emerged and waved to the gathered crowd.

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."

According to a report from the Washington Times, Maryland Republicans are up in arms after an AP history teacher at a local high school used a slide to illustrate similarities between Donald Trump's policies and those of the Nazis.

The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"

Stop praising anti-Trump evangelicals: Their embrace of authoritarianism is a big part of the problem

Published

on

At this critical moment for American democracy our media landscape is doing a poor job in its coverage of conservative white evangelicals. Coverage of this relatively large segment of the population is characterized by, on the one hand, effusive praise for the slightest milquetoast criticism of Donald Trump, and on the other, by a periodic parade of nearly interchangeable unfounded predictions about how evangelical youth are going to change America’s most radically right-wing demographic for the better—any day now. In the words of the great sage Bullwinkle J. Moose, “This time for sure!”
