It looks like former liberal darling Maureen Dowd, who was recently sent to the doghouse for suggesting that Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy makes her the perfect Republican candidate, will have some company very soon.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, photographed in 2015 marching alongside a Hillary Clinton campaign banner in an Independence Day parade, is in big trouble after entertaining a discussion on the state of Hillary Clinton’s health, because questioning a presidential candidate’s fitness is inappropriate and wholly unprecedented.
what is with @HardballChris pushing conspiracy theories about Hillary's health? why are you giving this air time?

Why is MSNBC still giving Matthews airtime? Some mysteries have no answer.
@HardballChris saw HRC testify for 12 hours at Benghazi hearings. Stamina? Strength? Let's see Trump's records. Seems he is on drugs.

Hey, enough with the drug shaming. We’re beyond that now; even President Obama joked at this year’s #nerdprom about how high he was in college.
Are we seriously talking about Hillary Clinton's health as a serious issue? Really?

@joanwalsh This is totally outrageous.

@joanwalsh Sickening. No pun intended.

@joanwalsh Institutional Sexism. Seen it all this election season. Will continue long after her 8th year as President.

@joanwalsh This is the woman who beat down a roomful of men for 11 hrs, while Trump complained of debates being too long & tiring

@joanwalsh I'm 27 and don't have even 10% of the strength and stamina she has.

Hold up a second; we haven’t gotten to that post yet:

What were we talking about again? How outrageous it is to question a candidate’s health?
@joanwalsh you demanded John McCain's medical records.

@joanwalsh If the health of a prospective President is of no concern, then why did you insist on seeing John McCain's medical records?
— Don Fenucchi (@DonFenucchi) August 16, 2016
@joanwalsh Why was McCain's health an issue and Clinton's isn't?
— Thundermom26 (@thundermom26) August 17, 2016
@joanwalsh People took issue with John McCain and demanded his health records. This is no different.

Wait … so we are talking about Clinton’s health as a serious issue?
@joanwalsh yes. Seriously. Really. Seriously. Really.
— David Kerr (@AskROTObaseball) August 17, 2016
@joanwalsh are you seriously questioning her health is not an issue?
— NeuroscientistPhD (@neuroscientist1) August 16, 2016
@joanwalsh Yeah…you don't think it's a consideration given her obvious issues? Also you're a hypocrite.
— Scott Brown (@libnightmare) August 17, 2016
@joanwalsh Why is it unreasonable to be sure that a potential POTUS doesn't suffer from chronic illnesses? I'd like a healthy-working POTUS.
— Ashley Cuellar (@KidCuellar) August 17, 2016
Just a working POTUS at this point would be nice.
