On the 15th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attack, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton had an issue of her own. After feeling overheated, campaign aides escorted Clinton to a nearby exit van, where she appeared to nearly faint as she entered. In the hours that followed, the medical issue was clarified, but it didn't stop some of her political opponents to use the opportunity to their advantage.

Palin on the attack

Recent video footage circulating around the internet isn't a positive for the Clinton campaign as it shows the former Secretary of State stumbling getting into a van. Clinton's doctor has since released a statement, clarifying that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, but wanted to show her respects at the September 11 memorial less than 48 hours later.

The medical issue comes at the worst possible time for the campaign, as Donald Trump and other Republicans have focused on conspiracy theories claiming Clinton is hiding a serious health problem from the public. Trump supporter and former half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin decided to weigh in on the story of the day, voicing her opinion on her offical Facebook and Twitter pages.

One of Palin's first posts to start the morning on September 11 was an attack on Clinton and President Obama, accusing their policies of causing further damage in the Middle East and expanding ISIS. Palin went on to post multiple articles from the right-wing news outlet "Independent Journal Review," both of which questioned Clinton's long-term health and viability to serve as president, as well as the "overheating" episode.

One caption read "Not so "deranged" anymore...," while another praised Trump for his recent speech about the Islamic terrorist attacks on 9/11.

Palin has been a strong supporter of the billionaire real estate mogul, making her endorsement public last January.

Election outlook

Even if Clinton's health turns out to be a non-issue as her doctor pointed out, the questions raised about the topic in question only puts further doubt into the minds of conservative and undecided voters.

Despite this, Clinton is leading the former host of "The Apprentice" by three points nationally, while also pulling ahead in key battleground states. It's unknown if the the recent health scare will negatively impact the presidential race, but unless Trump makes a historic comeback, most pollsters and political pundits are predicting a Clinton victory in November.
