MSNBC Host Mocks Coughing GOP Official: ‘Is That Pneumonia?’ (VIDEO)


Hillary Clinton suffering from pneumonia is the new focus for Republicans and their deplorable supporters. There was no outrage from conservatives when General David Petraeus fainted during a congressional hearing as he was being grilled in 2010 by senators skeptical about US strategy in Afghanistan. There was no conservative outrage when President George H.W. Bush collapsed at a state dinner being given for him in 1992 at the home of the Japanese Prime Minister. Bush fainted, then vomited, then slid to the floor.

But Hillary has pneumonia! That’s all the media and social site users are discussing.

MSNBC host Thomas Roberts interviewed Republican National Committee (RNC) Communications Director Sean Spicer when his guest suddenly coughed.

Raw Story reports:

On Monday, Roberts was grilling Spicer about Donald Trump’s charity work when the RNC official let out a cough to clear his throat.

Roberts asked, “Is that pneumonia?”

“Ah, no,” Spicer said. “Just a cough.”

Roberts continued with the interview, saying that questions which have arisen about Trump’s charitable foundation could be resolved if the GOP presidential nominee would release his taxes.

“So before election day, yes or no, do you think we’ll get them?” Roberts asked.

“I don’t know,” Spicer said. “That’s up to him to decide.”

“Do you care?” Roberts asked.

“I don’t think that’s really top of mind for the American people right now,” Spicer declared.

“Alright, Sean, good to have you with me,” Roberts said, before adding, “I’m glad that the cough is just that: a cough.”


As for Donald’s charitable foundation, it appears to largely benefit him. As an example, the Donald J. Trump foundation gave an illegal $25,000 donation to a political group supporting Florida’s attorney general, Pam Bondi in 2013. After Bondi’s office received the generous donation, she decided not to join other states in the fraud investigation into Trump University. She just dropped the case right after being illegally gifted with $25,000.

As for Donald’s taxes, Spicer was asked why Trump couldn’t release the ones from before 2009 which are not under audit. Spicer said, “I…I don’t know. I didn’t realize there was a year…” He then asked about Clinton’s taxes. She’s released 15 years of them.

Yeah, but Hillary has pneumonia.
