But a lot of pro-Trump right-wingers immediately assumed Clinton's cough was a sign of her imminent death and brought up similar coughing fits that she's succumbed to, like in 2015 during the Benghazi hearing.

The #HackingHillary hashtag began trending on Twitter, the media treated it like a huge story, and the comedians did what they do best—hate themselves. No, sorry, they just made jokes.
