good evening. thanks for joining us. hillary clinton facing political backlash tonight over what's being called her lack of transparency after revealing her previously undisclosed pneumonia diagnosis. this after weeks of the clinton camp dismissing concerns about her health as conspiracy theories. here's abc's david wright on how this will im t >> reporter: it's not just the fact that she stumbled or worse that makes this the news worthy. consider the time and place. ground zero on the 15th anniversary of 9/11. hillary clinton and donald trump both there to project strength and resolve after the worst terror attack ever on american soil. an attack that hit close to home for both of them. the world is watching. so for clinton to abruptly leave
12:06 am
then to appear to nearly collapse, that's bound to be a very big deal. >> new questions tonight about hillary clinton's health. >> moments ago because of some apparent medical episode -- >> i just didn't think it was going to be that big a deal. >> reporter: tonight clinton called in to "anderson cooper" to clear things up. >> a lot of folks are worried about you, how are you feeling? >> thank you, anderson, i'm feeling so much better. gotten some rest sooner. i probably would have been better off if i'd just pulled down my schedule on friday. >> reporter: but the damage was done. after clinton left ground zero it took her aides 90 minutes to issue a statement that she felt overheated during the ceremony and decided to head over to her daughter chelsea's manhattan apartment. less than an hour after that, she emerged, still in sunglasses, but all smiles, ignoring reporters' questions as
12:07 am
>> great, great! >> what happened? >> it's a beautiful day in new york. >> reporter: she even becaused to hug a little girl who ran up to greet her. then she cheerfully said her good-byes and zoomed home for the rest of the day. five hours later, another statement. this time from her doctor, revealing that she was diagnosed friday with pneumonia. >> now knowing that she has pneumonia, should she be hugging that child in the street? >> different types of pneumonia. some of them are contagious, most of them are not. >> reporter: even so, today senator chuck schumer, who stood next to her at ground zero, said he now has pneumonia. the campaign said a number of staffers have been stricken. the bug going around. clinton now following her doctor's orders cut back on her schedule. and tweeted tonight, like anyone who's ever been homesick from work, i'm just anxious to get
12:08 am
>> hello, everybody! >> reporter: today donald trump appeared to take clinton at her word. >> i just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail. and we'll be seeing here at the debate. >> reporter: but for weeks now his campaign has been sowing doubts about her physical stamina. >> she doesn't have the strength or the stamina to make america great again. believe me. >> reporter: citing her persistent cough that flared up again a week ago -- >> every time i think about trump, i get allergic. >> reporter: today, given her campaign's shifting stories, some tough love from a fellow democrat. former obama strategist david axelrod tweeted, antibiotics can take care of pneumonia, what's the clear for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems? >> i think it's clear that the
12:09 am
the shfallout has been question about transparency, honesty, trustworthiness. >> reporter: the good news for clinton is the health scare has taken focus off a comment she made friday night at a fund-raiser. >> you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. the racist, sexist, homophobic, xeno xenophobic, islam phobic, you name it. >> you cannot run for president if you have such contempt in your voter. and she does. >> reporter: but it's the health care issue now taking center stage. and not in the policy sense. clinton has a history of being less than forthcoming on this issue. in 2012, when she was secretary of state, clinton fainted at home while suffering from a stomach bug, banging her head and suffering what aides first described as a minor concussion. months later at a benghazi hearing, reporters noticed she
12:10 am
only then did her aides revise their earlier disclosure admitting that the concussion was much more serious than they had previously admitted. speaking with diane sawyer in 2014, clinton denied lasting damage. >> no lingering effects? >> no lingering effects. >> of any kind? >> nope, nope. >> reporter: but republicans have had a field day. gop strategist karl rove among the first to suggest clinton had suffered some sort of traumatic brain injury. 2016 race, whether she likes it or not. ? we came, we saw ? >> reporter: others have taken it further. >> what on earth could be the reason behind hillary clinton's bizarre behavior in recent weeks? >> reporter: this viral video, for instance, suggests everything from seizures to stds. >> hillary on the verge of a mental breakdown due to stress. >> i think the armchair diagnosis, looking at a video
12:11 am
does this mean the person has a seizure disorder? does this have -- do they have a neurological problem? i think that's nuts. but it's not going to stop people from doing it. >> reporter: neither candidate has released full results from a physical. both put out short notes from their doctors. both now promise a more detailed disclosure sometime later this week. >> personally, as a voter, i'd like to know that a candidate is overall fit to be president. that they don't have a condition that will impair t to carry out that job. as a medical professional, i know that there are conditions people could have that will not have any bearing on that that they may not want to share with the public. i think that's people's right to keep that information private. >> reporter: there's a rich history of presidential candidates concealing significant medical problems. most americans had no idea fdr was confined to a wheelchair, thanks to a complicit press corps who agreed to play down
12:12 am
jfk suffered from addison's disease, which can have impact on the body's response to stress. and ronald reagan's alzheimer's did not become public knowledge until well after he left office. >> these are things that may have affect theed the elections. should the public have known? i don't know. >> it makes vice presidential vetting that much more important. >> it does make that more important. >> hillary clinton is the most qualified person to run as president -- >> reporter: tonight tim kaine prayed for clinton's speedy recovery. but questions about her health are of the larger narrative about her lack of transparency. >> these questions about hillary clinton's health and stamina were on the dark reaches of the conspiracy theory internet and now is front and center in the campaign. >> reporter: ironically, hillary clinton has been talking for years about stumbling. >> when you're knocked down, get right back up. >> reporter: in fact, stumbling and getting back up again those to the heart what was she says would make her a good president.
12:13 am
whether you get back up. >> reporter: after this episode, that challenge is now suddenly literal. i'm david wright for "nightline" in new york. up next, he ain't heavy, he's my bulldog. why some pet owners are sending their furry friends to fat camp. later, a security scare at tonight's "dancing with the stars" with infamous olympian dance floor.s back at red lobster. that means you get to try as much as you want... ...of whatever flavors are calling your name. seriously. like new garlic sriracha-grilled shrimp. it's a little spice... ...a little sizzle... ...and a lot just right. and try new parmesan peppercorn shrimp. helloooo crispy goodness. and the classic... ...handcrafted shrimp scampi... can't get enough of? still gonna floor you. it may be called endless...
