LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — After Hillary Clinton’s health scare on Sunday, social media has lit up with conspiracy theories that she may have used a body double.
The Democratic presidential nominee collapsed outside her motorcade during her visit at a memorial in New York to mark the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
A few hours later, Clinton emerged from her daughter’s home with what appeared to be a different hairdo and appearing thinner as she posed for pictures with a little girl.
Some people posted photos of Clinton before and after the collapse to illustrate their points.
Clinton announced she had pneumonia. But Dr. Lisa Sparks, the dean of communications at Chapman University, said Clinton has a much bigger issue. “I think she definitely has a credibility problem and a language problem.”
Sparks said Clinton uses lawyer language like: ‘As far as I recall.” And in the case of her health, she withheld the entire truth.
“First we thought may be it’s allergies. And then suddenly when she collapses, it’s pneumonia. A lot of us know that pneumonia can be handled with antibiotic. So why didn’t we know about that a few days ago?” Sparks questioned. “Audiences are more savvy than they were 20 years ago. And the language needs to be more savvy.”
On Twitter, some asked where was the doctor or secret service when Clinton walked out after collapsing earlier?
Another unanswered question that Sparks said stripped away at Clinton’s credibility.
