Hillary’s ‘mystery man’ appears after her coughing fits

WND-20-YearsSept. 6, 2016: After then-Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton suffered the worst coughing fit of her 2016 campaign just two months before the election, a mysterious man seen by her side for many months on the campaign trail suddenly appeared on her plane.

As WND reported, Clinton suffered two coughing fits on Labor Day 2016 – one during a speech in Cleveland, Ohio, and a second one during a press conference on her plane.

In the past, the same man had been spotted helping Clinton up stairs and holding what appeared to be a Diazepam pen. Some observers referred to the man as Hillary’s “mysterious handler.”

The following image of the man on the plane was posted by the Gateway Pundit blog:


Gateway Pundit noted that the man was sometimes dressed like a Secret Service agent, “but his actions prove otherwise.”

For example, during one campaign event at Union Hall, New York, some protesters got rowdy.

“Hillary Clinton suddenly froze,” Gateway Pundit wrote. “She looked dazed and lost. Seeing this, a group of men rushed to assist the candidate on the stage. One man, however, gently pats the candidate’s back and says, ‘Keep talking.'”

But, according to the post, “An expert on Secret Service tactics told [the Gateway Pundit] Secret Service agents would not touch a candidate in the manner that this individual did and especially Hillary Clinton. It has been widely reported on Hillary’s disdain for the agents who work to protect her. The man who touches Hillary may be a member of Hillary’s close staff – but he is NOT a Secret Service agent.”

Hoft asked, “Do you think the media will ever ask the campaign about this guy?”

WND did ask the Hillary Clinton campaign about the identity and role of the man in the photos but never received a response.

At an earlier campaign appearance, the same man was reportedly seen carrying a long object that some claimed resembled a Diazepam pen.


Apparently frustrated that it couldn’t shut down news coverage of Clitnon’s recurring coughing fits, the campaign lashed out at an NBC reporter for daring to broach the subject of Clinton’s coughing fits in his news report.

And in an appearance on ABC News, Clinton running mate Tim Kaine insisted concerns about Clinton’s health were “idiotic.”

Donald Trump, then the Republican nominee, insisted the story surrounding Clinton’s health had been ignored by the mainstream media even though concerns went viral on social media and alternative news sites.

“Mainstream media never covered Hillary’s massive ‘hacking’ or coughing attack, yet it is #1 trending. What’s up?” Trump tweeted.


Many tweeters used the Twitter hashtag, #HackingHillary, to post comments about Clinton’s health.

Even Hollywood actor and producer James Woods chimed in, expressing his concerns and launching the Twitter hashtag #HerHackingHighness.

“I feel badly she’s obviously very sick, but she can’t responsibly be president with serious health problems,” Woods tweeted.
