Bill Clinton: Hillary Sometimes Gets 'Severely Dehydrated'

Posted: Sep 13, 2016 2:45 PM
Bill Clinton tried and failed to explain away his wife's latest medical scare during an interview with CBS' Charlie Rose on Monday. Rose asked the former president pretty bluntly whether or not Clinton's fainting spell was the result of a serious illness.

“Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors,” he said, “because frequently—well not frequently, rarely—but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.”

This story gets more interesting when we learned that CBS edited out the moment when he accidentally said "frequently."

Bill continued to defend Clinton's stamina, pointing out how she "worked like a demon" during her time in the State Department. Yet, Rose responded by noting a grueling presidential campaign is quite the challenge on its own.

Clinton laughed when Rose asked if there's any chance his wife would need to take weeks to rest from the campaign trail.

"Absolutely not," he said.

Still, Clinton's current illness just two weeks out from the first presidential debate certainly has to cause some concern among her team.
