The medical reports show NO problems with either candidate….
Just days after it took Clinton’s team 48 hours to disclose a case of pneumonia and a debate about the candidates’ transparency erupted, both the Democrat and the Republican took steps toward providing the public with more medical information — Clinton going bounds further than Trump in an effort to reassure voters.

While the Republican filmed an appearance on the Dr. Oz show — a safe environment — to discuss select details of his health, his opponent’s campaign released updated letters from both Clinton’s and running mate Tim Kaine’s physicians depicting a relatively healthy pair.
Not to be outdone, it took less than an hour before Trump’s campaign said his running mate Mike Pence would soon release health information of his own.
The back-and-forth was not only about the two candidates’ health, however. It was just as much about secrecy — an issue that has dogged both campaigns from Day One.
As Clinton’s campaign released the ticket’s information on Wednesday evening, it sought to go on offense: a pop-up message on the campaign’s landing page for the medical information declared, “It’s outrageous that Donald Trump hasn’t met basic transparency standards with his medical records and tax returns.”
Clinton’s new records released on Wednesday painted the picture of a candidate with low cholesterol (without taking a statin) and seasonal allergies. She also takes a thyroid medication, and as the campaign has previously disclosed, she takes a blood thinner, Coumadin. As far as the pneumonia, Clinton’s strain was non-contagious and bacterial, and she was instructed to stay on antibiotics for 10 days.
The latest letter from Bardack declares that Clinton “continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States.”Share on Facebook
