In case you somehow haven’t heard the news, Hillary Clinton was videotaped being literally dragged into a car by her staff after collapsing and apparently losing consciousness after leaving the ceremony memorializing the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks due to “feeling overheated”.
What is so disturbing, at the moment, is how nonchalant Clinton’s staff were about her collapse in that video. Watch it for yourself, if you haven’t already. They anticipated her knees buckling, then calmly gathered round and stuffed her into her vehicle like a rolled-up Persian rug. They displayed no more emotion than you would re-stuffing a fallen scarecrow and putting it back on its mount.

It’s disturbing not only because this incident was clearly not something that anyone involved with found surprising or alarming, but also because of the total lack of empathy shown by everyone handling her. It was more like “Eh, that object is doing that thing that it does again, let’s stick it in the car” than the response any compassionate human would have to the collapse of a 69 year-old woman.
And then, rather than take her to the nearest and best medical facility, they took her to her daughter’s house. Clinton was clearly in a very bad way, but she’s not worthy of an actual medical facility?
Where was the emergency cavalcade? Why weren’t people treating her with the respect that she deserves?
Who are these people? Where do they find them? Is this the sort of person Clinton is surrounded by all day? People who just toss her around like a sack of potatoes and put her wherever she needs to be, regardless of how she’s feeling or what she’s going through? Was it even her choice to go to the 9/11 ceremony, or was she coerced? We’ve seen how shamelessly open Wall Street execs can be with publicly issuing her orders on decisions as important as selecting a running mate. There are some major players pulling the strings behind the scenes, and they would seem to have a great deal invested in Clinton.
How monstrous would that be, though? If these people are leveraging a poor, sickly old lady to schlep all over the country without regard for how she’s feeling and what she’s going through? What an abusive, disgusting thing would that be? Leaving aside your feelings about Clinton and what she’s done in the past, what kind of depraved indifference would allow anyone to do that to a human being? Source
