Christiane Amanpour slams the media’s Clinton hysteria: ‘Can’t a girl have a sick day?’

CNN chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour slammed the media for having a “field day” speculating about Hillary Clinton’s alleged numerous health problems in addition to recent pneumonia diagnosis – an illness that caused her to almost faint during a 9/11 memorial event this Saturday.

After letting the public know of her diagnosis, Clinton’s doctor explained that she left the event after she “became overheated and dehydrated. After some rest at her daughter Chelsea’s apartment, Clinton said she was “feeling fine.”

In addition, video showing Clinton stumbling and looking wobbly while getting into a vehicle was shared far and wide across the Internet.

After the initial pounce on the story from right wing media, more mainstream outlets began to push the narrative that possibly the conspiracy theories surrounding the Democratic nominee’s health had some validity.

Even Amanpour’s own network contributed to the hysteria, bringing on doctors to baselessly speculate. One even suggested that something other then pneumonia contributed to Clinton’s condition – possibly the past concussion she suffered.

Speaking Sunday on her show Amanpour, Amanpour slammed what she saw as tabloidish coverage based in sexism.

“Can’t a girl have a sick day or two?” Amanpour asked, lamenting that “overqualified women have to try a hundred times harder than unqualified men to get a break or even a level playing field.”

“But surely this can’t be a case of a human being having an off day. Nope. Like so many things Hillary, the media are having a field day. Off to the races with another debilitating case of indignant outrage,” Amanpour said.

“This must be another typical Clinton conspiracy to fool them with a total transparency break down. Talk about a transparency break down, what about Donald Trump’s tax returns? Where are they? Can’t a girl have a sick day or two? Don’t get me started because when it comes to overqualified women having to try a hundred times harder than unqualified men to get a break or even a level playing field, well, we know that story.”
