Transcript

00:00:02
>> Hillary Clinton's team, on Monday, admitting they bungled the candidates weekend health scare after her dramatic fainting spell at a 9/11 ceremony ruined an effort to keep her pneumonia under wraps. Instead feeding the air of secrecy that has plagued her campaign from the start. Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon telling MSNBC, I think that in retrospect we could have handled it better.
00:00:25
>> We are working with her physician today to put together some additional materials which we intend to release in the coming days.>> Amateur video taken as she was hurried from the 9/11 event showed Clinton apparently being dragged into a van, later emerging from daughter Chelsea's home saying she felt great.
00:00:42
Only several hours later did her doctor report Clinton had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days earlier on Friday, and had become dehydrated.>> Thank you.>> Rather than piling on, Donald Trump taking a new tact, wishing Clinton a quick recovery on Fox News, and knocking down suggestions her illness could take Clinton out of the race.
00:01:02
Reporter Emily Stevenson says, no, it's not an impostor, just Trump learning from past mistakes.>> Trump is obviously learning from past situations where Clinton said things she shouldn't have said, or got herself into tough situations and Trump stepped on those kinda easy wins by saying something that could be taken the wrong way.
00:01:21
In this situation, people are asking questions about whether the Clinton campaign was transparent enough. And Trump doesn't need to interrupt those questions about whether she's trustworthy, questions about Clinton's email when she was using a private email server while she was at the State Department. And him stepping on that doesn't do him any favors.
00:01:40
>> With Trump holding back, some of the fiercest criticism coming from within Clinton's own party. President Obama's campaign manager David Axelrod in a scathing tweet saying, antibiotics can take care of pneumonia. What's the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?>> Trump has taking this opportunity to say he's going to release the results of a physical that he got.
00:02:02
He was all ready supposed to appear on the Dr. Oz show and he is saying that he is going to release medical records at that point. The Clinton campaign in response to that. On Monday said that they would also be releasing more information.>> But while Trump may have eased up on Clinton's health, that didn't stop him from going after her full bore Monday for calling half of Trump's supporters, quote, a basket of deplorables.
