Dizzy Hillary recalls other events
Hillary Clinton confirmed her husband's claim Monday that she is no stranger to dizzy spells and dehydration, but said she could recall only two such incidents in the past five years.It is hard to know when you can believe these two. Dehydration can cause people to get woozy and sometimes faint, but it is usually after strenuous exertion on a hot day. Standing around on an 80-degree day would usually not cause such an event for a healthy person.
"Oh, I think [it has happened] really only twice that I can recall," she said in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper. "You know, it is something that has occurred a few times over the course of my life, and I'm aware of it and usually can avoid it."
Clinton was recorded this weekend collapsing outside of an event in New York City. Her knees buckled, and her aides had to lift the candidate to help her get into her van.
The Clinton campaign has said she was overheated at the event, and they also revealed she was diagnosed last week with pneumonia.
Former President Bill Clinton told CBS News' Charlie Rose Monday evening that the fainting episode was really not that remarkable.
