Donald Trump, still furious that he got his clock cleaned in Monday night’s presidential debate against Hillary Clinton, lashed out on Wednesday night during a rally in Iowa, attacking Clinton’s health by saying “she can’t even make it to her car.”

The Republican nominee said:
I’ve been out from June 16. It’s been full-time. All the time. You see all the days off that Hillary takes? Day off, day off, day off. All those day offs and then she can’t even make it to her car, isn’t it tough?
Let’s make no mistake about this: Trump, the man-sized child that he is, is lashing out at Clinton because he was beaten so badly by her in Monday’s debate. It’s quite similar to the response a fourth grader has when he or she loses a game of kickball on the playground.
His attack on Clinton’s health and stamina is particularly puzzling given the fact that it was Trump who could barely remain standing and coherent as the debate wore on, while Clinton remained sharp and steady throughout.
Of course, Trump deciding to again stoke conspiracy theories about Clinton’s health is just the latest in a flurry of asinine comments made by the Republican nominee following the debate.
Since Trump’s shellacking, he once again dug in on President Obama’s birth certificate by taking credit for making the president produce it while falsely blaming Clinton for starting the birther conspiracy in the first place.
Trump also renewed his weight-shaming attacks on former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, saying her weight gain was a “real problem.”
The verdict is in: Donald Trump got his clock cleaned in the first presidential debate against Hillary Clinton and now he’s lashing out like a child that had a toy taken from him.
This once again proves that the Republican nominee is in no way fit to be commander-in-chief.
