Many witnesses at Bill Clinton’s appearance at the 2016 Democratic National Convention this week commented that he looked like he was seriously ill.
During Clinton’s prime time DNC speech on Tuesday night his hands visibly shook as he struggled through his performance.
“Anyone else notice the shaking hands on Bill Clinton?” OneTwitter user posted. “Think he’s sick?”

t’s been an ongoing problem for the former president.
During an appearance in Fairfield, Iowa in January, Clinton’s hand was visibly shaking as he launched attacks against Bernie Sanders.
“Who will do the most to make you a part of the future that the president painted in the State of the Union,” Clinton said, his voice quivering, too. “How are we going to do it and who’s the best change maker to do it?
“It’s not close. Hillary is the best change maker to do it,” Clinton said, his hand shaking as he pointed at the audience.
The once energetic Clinton is showing his age. It’s not 1992 anymore.
In 2013, Clinton denied having Parkinson’s.
“I have a condition that sometimes you get with aging,” Clinton said at the time, the Huffington Post reported. “You may have noticed it; my hand has a little tremor when I’m tired and a lot of people do when they’re older.”
“The first time it happened, I had to go get myself checked to make sure I didn’t have Parkinson’s [disease],” he said.
He said his doctor claimed he didn’t, though Clinton didn’t say what condition he has.
