Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile said Sunday she was "inspired" by Hillary Clinton after her fainting spell last weekend because, even though she had to be "lifted into that van," she "got up and kept fighting."
Brazile was responding to a question from MSNBC host Joy Reid, who asked Brazile how Clinton can make a "new first impression" on voters ahead of the first presidential debate on Sept. 26.
"Every time I hear Hillary Clinton, I’m always inspired by her," Brazile said. "I’m inspired by her example, because she’s someone who will lead us. I’m inspired by her fortitude and her resilience, because no matter how tired she was, how hurting—I mean, she was hurting, and she went out there last Sunday because she loved her constituents, and she wanted to stand up for them."
"And although she had to be lifted into that van, you know what? She got up, like most of us, she got up and she kept fighting, so that’s the Hillary Clinton that I hope people get to know," she continued.
Clinton made headlines last Sunday after she left a 9/11 memorial event in Manhattan early and then had to be helped into a van by her Secret Service detail. Multiple video angles of the incident appeared to show Clinton's body go completely limp as she was quickly placed in the van.
Hours later, the Clinton campaign released a statement announcing that Clinton had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days earlier.
