Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump knows no limits in his attempts to paint Hillary Clinton as a less formidable opponent and he stooped to a new low Wednesday night when he used her recent health issue against her during an appearance earlier this week.
Addressing a crowd full of supporters at a rally in Ohio on Wednesday evening, Trump made a thinly-veiled reference to recent reports that the Democratic Presidential Nominee became overheated while visiting the 9/11 Memorial site over the weekend and had to retreat to her daughter’s nearby apartment to rest.
“It is hot! And it’s always hot when I perform,” he told the crowd. “I don’t know, folks, you think Hillary would be able to stand up here for over an hour and do this? I don’t know.”

Taking things a step further, Trump also appeared on a taped segment with Dr. Oz, where he shared a basic look at his health in an attempt to reassure voters that he’s in nearly perfect medical record.
Despite the BMI listed in 70-year-old businessman’s medical records indicating that he’s nearing obesity, Trump told Dr. Oz that he “feels as good today as he did at 30.”
Clinton’s team also released a more forthcoming and detailed account of her medical history on Wednesday. Included in Clinton’s records were medications she’s currently taking, as well as her heart rate, cholesterol and blood pressure stats.
A look at the Secretary’s medical history also revealed the results of her most recent mammogram examination and proof that all of her necessary vaccinations are up to date.
