Hillary’s Health Again Front and Center in North Carolina

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are neck and neck in North Carolina, and both were scheduled to make campaign appearances in the state today. Trump’s event was a public meeting that was expected to draw a crowd of 7,000 or 8,000 in a town with 855 residents. Hillary planned something less strenuous: a fundraiser at a home in Chapel Hill, where a privileged few would pay $100,000 for the honor of meeting her.

But Hillary wasn’t up to even that modest effort, and she canceled her fundraiser:

Meanwhile, Clinton campaign officials said Monday afternoon that a Tuesday fundraiser in Chapel Hill was postponed.

The Clinton event was billed as “lunch with Hillary Rodham Clinton” and had four donation levels to attend.

No reason was given for postponement of the Clinton event, which was planned to take place at the home of Betty Craven and Michael Warner.

The reason is obvious: Hillary was too sick, or tired, or feeble to spend a couple of hours with a relative handful of admirers. If there had been some other reason for the cancellation, her staff would have trumpeted it, given current concerns about the health issue. But they didn’t.

If Hillary isn’t up to having lunch with a dining room full of supporters, she is–at this point, anyway–a long way away from being able to discharge the duties of President of the United States.
