In recent news, the state of Hillary Clinton’s health has come to question. Some say it’s pneumonia (Clinton’s doctor says so), while others claim it’s seizures, cancer or simply old age.
No matter what she is actually going through, one thing is blatantly clear: she isn’t doing well.
Throughout this whole debacle, the most worrying part has not necessarily been her health, but the way which people have reacted.
Although many have shown sympathy, some have used it as a means of making fun of her or claiming that she is unfit to be Commander in Chief.
Regardless of your political views, someone’s well-being is not grounds to make fun.
In astonishing fashion, even Donald Trump himself has shown an unusual amount of restraint when asked about Hillary’s health.
“The coughing fit was a week ago, so I assume that was pneumonia also. I would think it would’ve been. So, something’s going on, but I hope she gets well and gets back on the trail. And we’ll be seeing her at the debate.”
If Trump himself is showing sympathy on a scale such as this, maybe some people should reconsider how they’re reacting to her health record.
Someone’s health is not going to change their beliefs or values. They’re still the same person. If you choose to condemn someone, do so for their choices, which they have willingly made. Health isn’t something you choose to lose.
Before speaking badly about Hillary’s health, ask yourself how you would react if, instead of Hillary, a close relative of your own fainted.
Remember, everyone has someone who cares, and if the worst happens, who mourns.
