Hillary Clinton Didn’t Think that Pneumonia was a ‘Big Deal’ before She Wobbled and Stumbled

Cue damage control [1] by the Clinton campaign:

Hillary Clinton [2] said she didn’t disclose that she had pneumonia [3] last week because she “didn’t think it was going to be that big a deal,” she said in an interview Monday night…

Clinton previously attributed a cough she had to allergies [4], but she was diagnosed Friday with pneumonia, her doctor said…

“I’m feeling so much better, and obviously I should have gotten some rest sooner,” she told CNN’s Anderson Cooper [5] by phone Monday.

“I just thought I could keep going forward and power through it, and obviously that didn’t work out so well.”
