CNN Covers for Hillary's Coughing Fit: 'Choked Up'

How can we put this politely? "Choked up," our hind quarters . . . In  the most blatant case of the MSM covering for a liberal candidate with a potentially serious health issue that this NewsBuster can remember, CNN's Brianna Keilar has described a Hillary Clinton coughing fit as a case of Clinton getting "choked up."

Readers are urged to watch this clip from Hillary's speech in Harlem today. This is someone experiencing a serious, extended, coughing fit. Yet on Don Lemon's CNN show this evening, Keilar described this as Hillary being "choked up so badly that she struggled to speak for a few minutes and they actually cheered to fill the time." Rightttt.

This isn't the first time on the recent campaign trail that Hillary has suffered a serious coughing bout. 

DON LEMON: The South Carolina primaries are just days away, and African-American voters could be the key. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton takes her campaign to Harlem today hoping to make her case to black voters. Let's discuss now with CNN's senior political correspondent, Brianna Keilar. Good to have you here in New York in the studio. 

BRIANNA KEILAR: So good to be here. 

LEMON: Hillary Clinton, the speech, was it well received? 

KEILAR: It was. This was a very supportive crowd, right, that she was before at this black cultural center in Harlem. In fact, actually at one point she choked up so badly that she struggled to speak for a few minutes and they actually cheered to fill the time because it got a little awkward.
