Donald Trump took a swipe at Hillary Clinton on Wednesday for her early September health episode outside a 9/11 memorial event, mocking the Democratic nominee for not being able to “make it to her car.”
“You see all the days off that Hillary takes?” Trump asked the crowd at an Iowa rally. “Day off. Day off. Day off. All those day offs. And then she can’t even make it to her car.”
“Isn’t that tough?” he continued. “All those day offs. Right. Boom. Every see her chart? ‘She won’t be campaigning today. She won’t be campaigning today.'”
Trump was referencing an early-September incident when Clinton appeared to collapse outside of her car at the 9/11 memorial in New York. Her campaign later disclosed that she had a pneumonia, and she took part of the following week off the campaign trail.
Trump was initially reluctant to comment on the episode, wishing her a speedy recovery. But Trump hinted at the incident later in the week. However, Wednesday’s comment was one of his strongest jabs at the moment yet.
