Clinton amid Coughing Fit: ‘I’m Allergic to Trump’
Hillary Clinton blamed one of her coughing fits in Cleveland, Ohio, on her “allergy” to Donald Trump.
“Every time I think about Trump I get allergic,” she said as she continued to cough while trying to thank the event organizers on Monday.
“Once I get over my allergic reaction, let me say that we’re here in part because we know how important this election is to Ohio. It’s not just as Tim said that Ohio is one of those battleground states you hear about every four years, it’s that Ohio represents everything that’s great about America and all of the challenges and opportunities that we face.”
The cough seems to be winning this one. But Clinton is powering through. Her voice coming back slowly. "We can't face our problems alone."

Tim Kaine stood up to try to help Clinton as she struggled with more coughing – sat back down
