VIDEO: Hot mic catches Hillary trying to hide more coughing

Despite being back on the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton still isn’t well. At the conclusion of a 20-minute speech to the Black Women’s Agenda Workshop in Washington, DC, on Friday, Clinton began coughing.

Clinton tried her best to not act like she was hacking by not covering her mouth and holding still. Alas, the hot mic picked it up.

As she exited, turning her back to the stage, she could be seen coughing again — and covering it with the hand she uses to shake hands with voters.

A newer theory, Hillary has become allergic to her own lies, rather like an illness that attacks one's own immune system...

Race tightens in projected U.S. Electoral College vote: Reuters/Ipsos

An election analysis conducted in the Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project shows that the race has tightened considerably over the past few weeks, with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump projected to win Florida, an essential battleground state, if the election were held today.

The project, which is based on a weekly tracking poll of more than 15,000 Americans, shows that the 2016 presidential race could end in a photo finish on Nov. 8, with the major-party candidates running nearly even in the Electoral College, the body that ultimately selects the president.

The States of the Nation project, which delivers a weekly tally of support for the candidates in every state, shows that the race has tightened in several traditional battlegrounds. Pennsylvania has been moved from a likely win for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to a tossup; Ohio has been moved from a tossup to a likely win for Clinton.

And Florida is now considered a likely win for the Republican nominee, with 50 percent support for Trump to 46 percent support for Clinton. If the election were held today, the project estimates that Clinton has a 60 percent chance of winning by 18 electoral votes. Last week, the project estimated that Clinton had a 83 percent chance of winning the election.

Weren't some members here crowing that the Electoral College was sewn - up for Hillary? The stitching has come undone...

Nation's largest police union endorses Trump

The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) gave the GOP presidential nominee its endorsement after he received support from more than two-thirds of the group's national board.

"(Trump) has seriously looked at the issues facing law enforcement today. He understands and supports our priorities and our members believe he will make America safe again," said Chuck Canterbury, the FOP's national president.

"He's made a real commitment to America's law enforcement and we're proud to make a commitment to him and his campaign by endorsing his candidacy today."

Nervous Democrats Fret About Clinton’s Stumbles as Race Tightens

Eight weeks from Election Day, Democrats are feeling queasy about Hillary Clinton's narrowing national and battleground-state lead over Donald Trump.

A race some had considered a layup for Clinton on Tuesday showed Trump within 2.5 points in the RealClearPolitics average of polls. The Democratic presidential nominee's stumbles over the weekend—from a botched response to a health incident to having to partially disavow her comment slamming “half” of Trump's supporters—has heightened concerns.

After an incident Sunday when her campaign brushed off rumors that something was amiss until a video clip showed her dizzy and stumbling into a van after a Sept. 11 commemoration event, former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell said Clinton would help herself by being more transparent.

" herself by being more transparent."

Transparency is exactly what the Clintons are horrified about and have tried to avoid for decades, producing a false image as a substitute for revealing their malfeasance and machinations. Bill was good at the image, Hillary is not and is collapsing like the face of a glacier into water, causing a political tsunami, washing her White House chances away....

Is this Hillary's undercover nurse? Pictures show mystery woman appearing to check Clinton's pulse..

... as she clutches her heart before her collapse at 9/11 memorial.

Photos showing a mysterious woman appearing to check Hillary Clinton's pulse just before she collapsed Sunday have sparked rumors about Clinton's 'undercover nurse'.

The photos show a woman in a dark blue dress seemingly checking the candidate's pulse, and asking her to squeeze her fingers before she was rushed away from the Ground Zero 9/11 commemoration.

Now Twitter is alight with rumors that someone is keeping tabs on Clinton's health at all times, and that the candidate may even be suffering neurological damage.

Hillary Clinton's Medical Incident Raises Questions of Who Knew What When

New scrutiny is being applied to Hillary Clinton's health in the wake of the incident at Sunday's9/11 memorial ceremony, which she left after feeling "overheated."

Clinton is at home resting in New York today in keeping with doctor's orders, according to her campaign. But the incident has raised questions about the campaign's transparency. Clinton previously released some medical records, which are more detailed than medical documentation provided by Donald Trump, but even top Democrats are piling on, questioning an apparent reluctance to keep the public apprised.

President Barack Obama's campaign strategist David Axelrod tweeted a criticism this morning of the campaign. "Antibiotics can take care of pneumonia. What's the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?" he said.

Hillary Clinton’s health just became a real issue in the presidential campaign

Hillary Clinton falling ill Sunday morning at a memorial service on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks will catapult questions about her health from the ranks of conservative conspiracy theory to perhaps the central debate in the presidential race over the coming days.

"Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen," spokesman Nick Merrill said. "During the ceremony, she felt overheated, so departed to go to her daughter's apartment and is feeling much better."

What that statement leaves out is that a) it came 90 minutes after Clinton left the ceremony b) reporters — or even a reporter — were not allowed to follow her and c) the temperature in New York City at the time of Clinton's overheating was in the low 80s. (A heat wave over the eastern United States broke last night/this morning).
