After Hillary Clinton collapsed at a September 11th memorial service, rumors about her health have swirled. Now, it looks like at least one of those rumors might have been confirmed during Sunday’s debate.
Kristin Cole, a newscaster with New York City local news channel PIX11, dropped a bombshell announcement: that the Secret Service banned flash photography during the debate—and took away people’s phones—because they were concerned that the sudden bursts of light could cause Hillary to have a seizure.
The lighthearted panel was playing with disposable cameras and discussing their “comeback” during Sunday’s debate after one was seen with Ken Bone, an audience questioner who has attracted subsequent internet attention.
After Cole took a camera flash in the face, she explained that this was exactly why the Secret Service had apparently banned cameras to begin with:
"This is the reason why [cell phone cameras were] banned, apparently, because the Secret Service did not trust people to disable the flashes on their cameras. And they were afraid it would, sort of, inspire Hillary’s seizure disorder, that she would have a problem with that.”
Hillary’s campaign has not yet publicly weighed in on whether or not their candidate suffers from seizures—and whether or not they had specifically asked the Secret Service to ban cameras, for fear of harming Hillary during Sunday’s debate.
