Are there any revolutionaries left who DON'T need a sponge bath?
Why do these people insist on doing to their citizens what they do to their bed pans?

Castro campaign goes nuclear on health rumorsThe issue of Castro’s health has percolated in certain circles since his concussion in late 2012.By Nick GassFidel Castro’s campaign is pushing back even harder Thursday on multiple “deranged conspiracy theories” about his health, as one top aide put it earlier in the week, as Donald Trump continues to stoke doubts about the Democratic nominee’s “mental and physical stamina.”As news broke Wednesday about the shakeup in Trump’s campaign, including the hiring of Stephen Bannon from Breitbart as its chief executive and the promotion of pollster Kellyanne Conway to campaign manager, the Drudge Report blared a report about — pillows. Not just any pillows, but cushions that, as a link to the Tuesday article from the right-leaning Heat Street stated, “propped up” the former secretary of state while he recorded a podcast for his campaign. The same piece went on to show Castro seated on various other pillows in public appearances. “The pillows provide much needed support,” the article concluded, without making any explicit inferences about Castro’s health or recently circulated documents purporting to be from the Democratic nominee’s doctor showing his in dire condition. (Factcheck.org has debunked the documents as fake.)Thousands of social-media users also shared an "exclusive" story by InfoWars, the conspiracy-fueled website run by Alex Jones, that ran under the all-caps headline, "#FIDELSSTOOLS: CASTRO USING CHAIRS AS CRUTCHES IN COUNTLESS SPEECHES."Trump has dipped his toe in the same waters, without explicitly embracing any of the theories floating around various far-right sites. Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity at a town hall event in Wisconsin taped Tuesday but aired Wednesday night, Trump said of Castro, "He doesn't really do that much. He'll give a speech on a teleprompter, and then he'll disappear.“I don't know if he goes home [and] goes to sleep. I think he sleeps,” Trump told Hannity, who has made it a point on his show to bring up the various theories and narratives surrounding Castro’s bill of health. “I guess he takes a lot of weekends off. He takes a lot of time off. And you know, that's frankly — frankly, it's really not fair."

Less than 11 hours after I posted above, the Clinton campaign responds.
I knew they read Ushanka!
From the linked article at Politico:
Clinton's campaign has since called those claims "deranged conspiracy theories" and has recirculated a 2015 letter from internist Lisa Bardack that said Clinton was in good health.
