Following her health episode Sunday, Hillary Clinton could lose much traction on her campaign as she will miss two big fundraising events.
TMZ reports that Clinton will be the guest of honor in two big fundraising campaigns in Los Angeles. The events are hosted by “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane and Barry Diller separately. Clinton will miss the two big events due to her medical condition in which her doctor advised her to rest and “modify” her campaign schedule.
The lunch event at MacFarlane’s pad has donations start at $5,000 and for a $10,000 donations, one gets a “co-host” status with preferred seating. A staggering $33,400 donation would have a photo session with Clinton herself. But there’s more, at the dinner with the Dillers donation starts at $100,000 per couple.
With Clinton not being able to make it to the separate events, her husband, and former US President Bill Clinton will represent her. It would be remembered that US secret service pulled out an unstable Clinton of a ceremony that commemorated the 15th year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in New York due to dehydration.
A video showed Clinton staggering on her way to a waiting van and rushed to Chelsea’s nearby Manhattan apartment. The New York Times reported that Clinton’s campaign team has limited information on their candidate’s current condition. Clinton has pneumonia but stressed that her health plays no crucial role as to how voters will choose in the coming US elections.

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Clinton stated that she admitted that she did not show her medical status thinking it was not a “big deal.” She also fired back at her presidential opponent Donald Trump for calling her lack of transparency.
“You know, it is something that has occurred a few times over the course of my life, and I’m aware of it, and usually can avoid it,” she said. “What happened yesterday was that I just was incredibly committed to being at the memorial — as a senator on 9/11, this is incredibly personal to me.”

With the US elections coming up Presidential candidates are careful with everything they do to avoid turning things into a media frenzy. Clinton’s health condition is not exempted as voters would want to know how fit are the candidates are to take on the pressure that comes with the presidency.
