Gary Johnson wants to receive security briefings, which would be a great way to learn what Aleppo is. An FBI agent pretended to be an AP reporter, and we’re pretty sure that’s one of the few remaining ways to be a paid journalist.

This is HUFFPOST HILL for Thursday, September 15th, 2016:

PHLEGMGHAZI UPDATE: CLINTON RETURNS TO THE TRAIL, TRUMP APPEARS ON QUACK’S TV SHOW –  “Hillary Clinton planned to resume campaigning on Thursday after pneumonia forced her to take time off and an aide to the Democratic presidential nominee said facing a Republican rival as controversial as Donald Trump makes it ‘harder to be heard.’ … With the candidates’ health in the spotlight, Trump, 70, on Thursday released details of a recent physical examination, a day after Clinton released details on her medical condition. Trump’s campaign said the results of his physical showed the fast-food fan has normal cholesterol with the help of a statin drug, weighs 236 pounds (107 kg) and has normal blood pressure…In a not-so-subtle slap at Clinton, the Trump campaign said the medical report showed Trump ‘has the stamina to endure – uninterrupted – the rigors of a punishing and unprecedented presidential campaign and, more importantly, the singularly demanding job of president of the United States.’ Top Clinton aide Jennifer Palmieri said ‘one upside’ of Clinton’s unplanned break was the chance to ‘sharpen the final argument Clinton will present to voters in these closing weeks.’” [HuffPost]
