Katrina Pierson: Hillary Clinton Has Dysphasia

The Trump campaign’s push to gin up speculation about Hillary Clinton’s health continued Thursday when national spokeswoman Katrina Pierson told MSNBC that the Democratic nominee suffers from serious brain damage. Citing her “mannerisms” and her previous “concussion,” Pierson told host Kristen Welker that Clinton suffers from dysphasia, a neurological condition that impairs the ability to communicate and/or understand speech. Despite the MSNBC anchor reading a statement from Clinton’s long-time physician, blasting the conspiracies as “not based on any medical facts,” Pierson persisted: “It is extremely important to note that Hillary Clinton has taken a lot of time off the campaign trail. It is something that needs to be addressed,” she said, suggesting the Democratic nominee has to take breaks from campaiging due to health concerns.
