Dr. Drew Leads the Hillary Clinton Health Truthers

(Daily Beast) The celebrity doctor’s comments breathed new life into the already-rampant Clinton health conspiracy theories, giving the Fox & Friends crew an excuse to talk about them on Thursday morning…
It took Newt Gingrich, of all people, to shut the speculation down on Fox & Friends, as TPM noted.
“With all due respect to television doctors, when you have a doctor who has never seen the patient, [begin] to give you a complicated, fancy-sounding analysis based on what?” the former Speaker of the House said. “I mean, I would be very cautious and I would recommend to doctors for professional reasons to be very cautious before you start analyzing people.”…
The only record that was available for Pinsky and his Biggest Loser colleague to review is a page-and-a-half letter from Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s physician at Mount Kisco Medical Group. That letter concludes that the former Secretary of State is “a healthy female with hypothyroidism and seasonal allergies, on long-term anticoagulation.”
Indeed, all of Pinsky’s “grave” concerns are already addressed in the record that he claims to have “dispassionately” evaluated.
