After Hillary Clinton’s “medical episode” today, it was suddenly announced she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.

But that didn’t stop her from recklessly embracing a child on a New York City street on Sunday, despite the fact that the illness is contagious.

Hillary exited Chelsea Clinton’s apartment building before exclaiming, “I’m feeling great!”

She reportedly recovered for two hours inside Chelsea’s apartment. Chelsea has two young children in the home.

Moments later, a child ran past a protective detail to greet Clinton in what some are saying was a staged event.

Hillary then touched her on the shoulders and bent down nearer to her, despite pneumonia being a contagious illness.

WedbMD reports:

“Walking pneumonia” sounds like it could be a character in a sci-fi horror flick. Although this form of infectious pneumonia can make you miserable, it’s actually the least scary kind of pneumonia. That’s because it’s a mild pneumonia and does not generally require hospitalization. You could have walking pneumonia and not even know it. …

And, even though the disease is contagious, it spreads slowly. The contagious period in most cases lasts less than 10 days. Researchers also think it takes prolonged close contact with an infected person for someone else to develop walking pneumonia; still, there are widespread outbreaks every four to eight years.

If Hillary Clinton knowingly has a contagious illness, why is she potentially exposing a child to it?
