Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson seized on a story promoted by the Drudge Report alleging that Hillary Clinton has a secret handler who guides her through health crises.
The evidence? That the man supposedly carries a Diazepam pen and once rushed to the stage during a campaign rally to help Clinton breathe.
In reality, this suspicious man is actually a Secret Service agent who went up on stage to help Clinton not because of a health crisis but because an animal rights activist protesting the event had gone over the stage barrier. The supposed Diazepam pen he was allegedly holding was actually a flashlight.
Robertson, citing the Drudge Report, wondered if “the heavy-set black gentleman” was Clinton’s “whisperer” and claimed that the man is not affiliated with the Secret Service.
“People are saying, ‘Who is this man?’” he continued. “There are some who are saying, ‘Maybe he’s a doctor who is with her and trying to help her along.’”
This isn’t the first time that Robertson has raised bogus questions about Clinton’s health.
