On Monday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah blasted Hillary Clinton for hiding that fact that she was diagnosed with pneumonia Friday. Video cropped up on news outlets Sunday of the Democratic nominee nearly collapsing while leaving a 9/11 memorial ceremony.
The Clinton campaign then announced that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days earlier, but tried to cover it up. The media came down hard on her for continuing to feed into claims that she’s dishonest.
“Everyone, especially reporters, has a right to be angry â€• especially everyone Hillary kissed and touched this weekend,” Noah joked, showing pictures of Clinton interacting with supporters. “Look at her! Handing out pneumonia like it’s a free sample at Costco!”
Noah remarked that his biggest qualm with the Clintons is how they try to keep everything a secret. “It’s not the things they do that get them, it’s the way they try to cover them up,” he said.
“Just sit us down, look us in the eye, and tell us the truth.”
