By every measure, Hillary Clinton suffered a disastrous weekend surrounding the 9/11 anniversary.

Her near collapse on Sunday morning hurt her badly not just because it left the impression of frailty and ill-health, but due to foolish attempts to conceal her pneumonia from a public that deserves candor. Even worse, her comments on Friday night smearing half of Trump’s supporters with charges of racism and homophobia will undermine all her attempts to woo independent or Republican voters.

The main impulse behind much of the support for Donald Trump involves an angry rebellion against political correctness. Hillary only intensifies that anger by invoking precisely the sort of smug, stifling leftist pieties most Americans resent—dismissing those who reject her candidacy as either bigots or misguided unfortunates who’ve been conned by haters.

This patronizing attitude could very well turn an election she couldn’t lose into a campaign that she can’t win.

    I wonder, although I am not prone to follow conspiracy theories, I just wonder if Hillary is really sick. Otherwise why is Barack Obama campaigning for her while she recovers? Is that fair? Perhaps it isn't even true, but it's not fair to Donald Trump to have Mr Wonderful with the golden tongue take over from here.

    Not only that the Golden Tongue Obama went out to campaign for Hillary, Her husband Bill also went out to campaign in her behalf. For the latter, it is like Bill campaigning for his come bid for the WH,let alone Baracks third term too. VERY UNFAIR INDEED. I HOPE ALL PEOPLE THAT WERE ALL BIGOTED BY HILLARY NOW WILL VOTE FOR THE DONALD. I AM VOTING FOR THE TRUMP!! AND I URGE ALL TO VOTE FOR HIM TOO. HE IS NOT A LIAR – HE IS A BUILDER. BEING A BUILDER, HE WILL REBUILT OUR NATION AND GET RID OF ALL UNDESIRABLES THAT CAUSE CHAOS IN OUR COUNTRY. HILLARY IS THE PATHOLICAL LIAR..IT HAS BEEN PROVEN IN HER E-MAILS AND BENGAZI SAGA. PLUS, THE COUNTRY HAS ENOUGH OF HER FACE ALREADY..FROM ARKANSA FIRST LADY, TO US FIRST LADY, A SENATOR, THEN A SECRETARY STATE. THAT IS ENOUGH FOR A WOMAN ALREADY, SHE HAS TO RETIRE NOW AND TAKE CARE OF HER HUSBAND BILL..TOO MUCH OF HER FACE IN THE MEDIA I AM TIRED TO LOOK AT HER ANYMORE. GIVE SOME THE CHANCE TO EXPOSE THEMSELVES. HILLARY TOO MUCH ALREADY!! YOU ARE ALREADY WORN OUT..YOU CAN NO LONGER RUN THE COUNTRY..TOO BIG STUFF FOR YOUR FRAIL SICK BODY – PLUS, WE DO NOT WANT BILL TO BE "FIRST LADY (GENTLEMAN) IN THE WHITE HOUSE."

    So hard to believe there are still people in this country that buy into all the name calling Hillary loves to do. There is no meaning left in being called a racist because she tosses it out at everybody especially when she has no answer or defense. Furthermore i am sick and tired of being told the ONLY reason i dont like Hillary, is because she is a woman…..there are many many reasons i dislike her,,,,that one just doesnt make the list!

    Hillary is so dirty she is now stealing from her POOR DONORS. Wells Fargo Bank fraud unit overwhelmed by Crooked Hillary deceit. http://observer.com/2016/09/exclusive-hillary-clinton-campaign-systematically-overcharging-poorest-donors/

    Great dark, "House of Cards" pic of Hillary.

    I am sure she thought she thought that could split the GOP with her five phobias speech since it came in the context of a TV campaign featuring prominent Republicans bolting from Trump. But, frankly, many more of us than she realizes prefer those "phobias" to her manias. #megalomania #kleptomania

    Trump may be a bit toxic with his outlandishly blunt and over-generalized comments. But so is chemotherapy. And America needs a little chemo just now to excise the cancer of political correctness and DNC/Clinton Machine corruptness. And Trump is our last best hope for the next four years, anyway.

    Thanks for a great article, Michael.

    I wouldn't call what she did on Sunday a near collapse but a total collapse.

    KILLARY IS SICK AND SHOULD BE LOCKED UP FOR THOSE SHE HAS KILLED

    Donald Trump is a liberal thief and a lier. I would not trust him if he said that sky was blue on a clear summers day. If he is elected president he will push through his liberal agenda with the willing accomplices of Democrats and moderate Republicans in Congress. If you think otherwise you are foolish and naive.

    • Henry  •  Sep 18, 2016 at 5:48 pm

      But, Jeff, … you have to admit, … Hillary is an even worse *leftist, a bigger thief, and a greater liar. I would not trust her if she said the sky was above us!

      * I refuse to say worse “liberal” because I cannot stand that the left somehow managed to steal the word “liberal” from its proper adherents.

    Has anyone heard from Nani? I'm starting to worry about her.
    I think she finally went totally mad and had herself committed.

    Really sick of it all. She is wicked and Trump needs to figure ourt how to quit tweeting his defense every time she comes up with a new one, .ie, the Latin beauty. All she has to do to win is push his buttons. We need Trump and he needs to develop a hard shell. He should have used her week-end and stayed on point. 18 running and we get these two!!!!!! Rigged????
