Appearing on Sean Hannity’s radio program this Tuesday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich jumped full throttle into the conspiracy theories circulating about Hillary Clinton’s health, this time sparked by a coughing fit she recently had during a speech at a Labor Day rally in Ohio.
Hannity then played an audio compilation of coughing fits Hillary’s had throughout the campaign, to which Gingrich searched for a diagnosis: the coughs are sounding “deeper” and “much longer” these days.
“It lasted for four minutes and 20 seconds this weekend,” Hannity said.
“I think we need to know if she’s healthy,” he added before bringing up her concussion from a few years back.
That’s when Newt started coughing.
“Now you sound like Hillary,” Hannity quipped.
“By the way, yours didn’t last four minutes and 20 seconds, thank God,” he added, seemingly realizing the godsend for mockery the segment was birthing.
“No, I’m in good shape,” Gingrich replied, realizing it too. “At least I’m in better shape than Hillary.”
“A three-second cough does not equate to a four-minute-and-20-second cough,” Hannity said, casting the lifejacket out again.
“That’s true,” Gingrich replied before explaining that “I fly so much” that “my throat dries out.”
“It does,” Hannity agreed. “You have to keep hydrated big time.”
Too bad they didn’t consider that Hillary is also a frequent flyer.
