The latest incident relating to the wellbeing of the US Democrat party candidate in the upcoming presidential election caused a great agitation in the American, but also Russian media. After Hillary Clinton was obliged to prematurely leave the mourning ceremony devoted to the anniversary of the September 11th attacks, the Internet has seen numerous videos of security literally carrying her to the car, as a result it became rather impossible to hide and ignore her health problems. As the agency Bloomberg correctly wrote, Clinton’s HQ appeared to not be ready for such a situation, which also could be, if not prevented, at least anticipated.

Discussing the health status of politicians is a touchy subject and I absolutely do not want to sink to the level of American media, which already for a long time has been amusing ‘medicentric’ trash, aimed at discrediting the Russian President. And despite the fact that I have facts and evidence to attack Clinton, I still don’t want to do it. Well, I can’t work following Anglo-Saxon standards of journalism, and it’s probably for the best.

It seems to me that a more important question than the alleged pneumonia or stroke of Hillary Clinton, is what will happen in the event that the Democrat party comes to the conclusion about the need to replace her?

Rumours about an emergency meeting of the leadership of the Democrat party about a possible replacement for Hillary Clinton appeared in Western press just a few hours after her fainting.

Is the possible replacement for Clinton beneficial for Russia? My answer is an unequivocal and firm “no”. It’s not profitable for us and here’s why. Hillary Clinton in reality is great chance for us. She has simply an astronomical low rating and she, as a person, represents just a perfect target for justified information attacks on her corruption schemes, about receiving money from Saudi Arabia, about her private servers containing secret information, and so on. In this case, it is necessary to understand that her bestial Russophobia is not her personal opinion and not her personal glitch, but the position of those parts of the American political elite that she represents. Any candidate that will replace Clinton in the presidential race from the Democrat party will be the same ardent Russophobe, but most likely they will not have the same number of skeletons in their closet and such a low rating as her.

Let’s take a concrete example – Tim Kaine. He is the most likely candidate to replace Clinton, as she has already chose him as her potential Vice President and it is likely his candidature that will be discussed at today’s emergency meeting of the Democrat party. Senator Tim Kaine is a Democrat, but has nearly always been known for his support of Republican John McCain on key issues of foreign policy. Yes, the same McCain. From the fresh statement of Kaine on foreign policy we can note the call for a no-fly zone over the whole territory of Syria, of course, without an agreement with Moscow, or moreover with Damascus.

As a fun touch to his portrait, which can explain a lot in the behavior and career of this politician, we can notice that he supports same-sex marriage and rights of adoption of children by same-sex couples ,despite the fact that he considers himself to be a Catholic. How all this coexists in the single head is absolutely incomprehensible, but it is absolutely obvious that Hillary Clinton chose a worthy partner who wholeheartedly supports the start of this global war. Tim Kaine is like “Hillary in trousers”, only more vigorous and has not managed to gain a large low rating. Based on this, I think we need to wish Hillary Clinton the courage and perseverance so that she literally sinks her teeth into their right to run. Let her frighten voters more with her coughing and outrageous statements, it will be only better for everyone.

And the last one. I don’t know how the outcome of the election race in the US will end, but I have a feeling that I can’t share it with you. The crisis of confidence in the government, the ageing rulers with serious health problems and a population that is increasingly listening to “enemy voices”… does it remind you of anything? The US gains some elusive resemblance to the late USSR. Who knows, maybe it will turn out that the next President will be an American Gorbachev?
