Newly released Hillary email to Huma: ‘I don’t feel great,’ so arrange USAF jet to go home from DC to Westchester
Back in 2009, Hillary Clinton was complaining about her health sufficiently to ask for an Air Force jet to ferry her back home to Westchester County from Washington, D.C. so as to avoid the harrowing and taxing experience of taking the Air Shuttle, the way thousands of less pampered people do on a daily basis.
Aaron Klein reports for Breitbart:
On May 4, 2009, Hillary Clinton wrote to her top aide Huma Abedin, “I still don’t feel great,” and Clinton requested an Air Force plane instead of taking a shuttle from Westchester, New York, apparently to get to Washington, D.C., according to an email released Monday by Judicial Watch. (snip)
Do you think we could get a plane for Westchester flight back tonight? It’s going to rain all day and I still don’t feel great so the idea of playing a guessing game w the shuttle is pretty burdensome to me. What do you think? Could be anytime that works for the Air Force.
Further correspondence indicates that the Air Force did assign a c-21 aircraft to the mission. You and I would call it a Lear Jet, and if we were seriously familiar with bizjets, we’d name it the Model 35A.
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night comedy show, Hillary ridiculed concerns over her health:
KIMMEL: Are you in good health?
HILLARY CLINTON: This has become one of their themes. Take my pulse while I'm talking to you. Make sure I'm alive.
KIMMEL: Oh, my God. There's nothing there.
CLINTON: Back in October the National Enquirer said I would be dead in 6 months. So, with every breath I take I feel like I have a new lease on life.
I don't know why they are saying this. I think on the one hand I think it's part of the 'wacky strategy.' Just say all these crazy things and maybe you can get some people to believe you. On the other hand it just makes absolutely no sense.
I don't go around questioning Donald Trump's health. As far as I can tell he's healthy as a horse.
KIMMEL: Well his doctor said he had the best examination he has ever seen in a human being.
CLINTON: Yeah, I saw that.
KIMMEL: Can you open this jar of pickles?
[PRESENTS PICKLE JAR]
KIMMEL: This has not been tampered with.
[CLINTON OPENS JAR]
Yeah, that’s hilarious. So is a senior official trying out for the most demanding job in the world but unable to handle standing in line for a commercial airplane flight.
