Not only did Hillary Clinton ignore questions this morning about the appearance of Seddique Mateen at her Kissimmee, Florida rally on Monday, but she’s canceled a press gaggle this afternoon.
The Washington Post’s Abby Phillip reports the appearance before the media was “scrapped.”

It wasn’t just Clinton that went into hiding. So did her running mate Tim Kaine.
Clinton declined to answer questions about Trump's comments in Davie, and Kaine gaggle with reporters in Austin apparently called off.

His gaggle was canceled, too, according to CBS reporter Hannah Chanpong.
So now not only are they not answering questions about her health status, but they’re avoiding the media about why Seddique Mateen, the father of the Orlando nightclub terrorist Omar Mateen, was seated prominently at her rally last night.
