Was this a shortcircuit? Do we have the technology to rebuild her?

And WTF is this? Pneumonia? I don't think so. Looks neurological to me, possibly a seizure. Just MO though.

Leading theory I've heard is that she has Parkinson's. Supposedly that, combined with the side effects of long term treatment, explain all her bizarre behavior. It's also frequently comorbid with pneumonia since people's swallowing and coughing reflexes are fucked. A lot of shit goes down the wrong way, and it's hard to have productive coughs to clear out the lungs. Results in a lot of lung infections that frequently escalate.

Didn't she supposedly have a battle with brain cancer 4 years or so ago? Might be relapsing.

I believe the story behind that is she fell, smashed her head, got a really bad concussion, and the concussion caused a deep brain blood clot. Supposedly that took her 6 months to recover from.
Another theory I've heard instead of Parkinson's is that she's suffering from long term effects from the concussion. Because apparently when you get a concussion as a 65 year old woman, you are in the statistically most likely group to have horrific long term cognitive side effects.
But she's fallen a lot. She's fallen and broken her elbow, fallen and gotten a concussion. There are a few incidents on record of her falling and secret service grabbing her before she hurts herself. So the frequent falling spells seem to actually precede the concussion, which points more towards Parkinson's.

Not inclined to back a Parkinson's diagnosis here. That's Michael J. Fox and Cassius Clay/Mohamed Ali stuff there, she'd be dancing/weaving around, and her speech would be more bizarre. Unless she was early onset, but as this has been going on for years now....

It's a prion based neuro degenerative disorder, from all the human flesh she's been consuming.

This is the last remaining incentive for me to continue my involvement in politics. I miss the human bacon.

Well, I hadn't considered Mad Cow disease.
