Carson Urges ‘Elderly’ Candidates To Disclose Medical Histories

“Elderly” presidential nominees like Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump should let voters know about their medical conditions, Dr. Ben Carson said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The retired pediatric neurosurgeon, who sought the Republican presidential nomination before dropping out of the race and endorsing Trump, was asked about widely debunked claims that Clinton suffers from physical and mental problems. He replied: “As a physician, physicians and scientists will generally not make diagnoses on things they see from a distance.”

Carson added: “I think that somebody who is running for president of the United States, particularly if they’re elderly, and that would include both candidates, should disclose their full medical history. It’s common sense. As people get older, things begin to happen to them. (The presidency) is a very stressful job. It is a 24/7 job, and every candidate should be held to the same standard.”

The Hill reported that Clinton is trying to brush off rumors that she has something to hide. “Back in October, The National Enquirer said I’d be dead in six months. So with every breath I take I feel like it’s a new lease on life,” she told talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night. “I think, on the one hand, it is part of the wacky strategy. Just say all these crazy things and maybe you’ll get some people to believe you.”
