Just as she looked like she was heading for a landslide, the combination of a deplorable gaffe and a hot wobble has thrown the campaign into disarray

Dr Bardack is chair of internal medicine at the Mount Kisco Medical Group in New York and has been Clinton’s personal physician since 2001. She addressed Clinton’s concussion in 2012, for which the Democratic nominee still takes an anticoagulant. In a doctor’s note released last summer, Bardack declared Clinton “in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as president of the United States”.

In 2008, Barack Obama, then 47, released a 276-page report about his health. His opponent, John McCain, then 71, made available more than 1,000 pages related to his own medical history.

In contrast, Clinton has released only a few pages of records and Trump has released only a letter from his personal physician which contains few details and which the doctor subsequently said was “rushed”, prompting calls for more detail from both candidates.

Trump is scheduled to appear on the Dr Oz television show later this week, to discuss both presidential nominees’ health.

A spokesman for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee, said in a statement to the Guardian on Sunday: “Given Governor Johnson’s level of fitness and exercise, his medical records haven’t been much of an issue. We will discuss with him how and what information to release.”

This should not be news. But in today’s febrile world of Twitter-fed headlines, it bears repeating: there are two old people running for president.

One is a 68-year-old woman whose legs gave way in the late summer heat on Sunday [Editor’s note: shortly after publication of this article, the Clinton campaign revealed she was suffering from pneumonia]. Hillary Clinton has also coughed a few times on camera. Both events have taken on cosmic significance in this otherwise sedate and stately presidential contest.

Four years ago, Clinton fainted and banged her head while sick with a stomach virus. Her doctor detailed last year the handful of pills she takes regularly: for her allergies, thyroid, and blood thinning. These facts have driven the conservative media into the kind of hysteria that requires its own medical attention.

If American voters (or journalists) still expect their candidates to be – in the words of a popular musical – young, scrappy and hungry, they have not been paying attention. The primaries have left us with two nominees who are rather geriatric, stiff and well-fed.

But as Joe Biden (73 years old) likes to say: don’t compare me to the Almighty, compare me to the alternative.

In this case, the alternative is an overweight 70-year-old man who loves fast food, and whose gastroenterologist declared that he would be the healthiest president ever.

Donald Trump’s gut doctor explained in recent interviews that this “healthiest” judgment was compared mostly to people now residing in their graves. “All the rest of them are sick or dead,” Dr Harold Bornstein told NBC News.

This is an unkind comparison for the current commander-in-chief, who works out every day and seems not to have an inch of fat on his bones. It is true that Barack Obama gave up basketball a few years ago, so maybe Bornstein knows something we don’t. Then again, he also admitted he wrote about Trump’s health in five minutes while a Trump limo idled outside his office.

Hillary had a terrible weekend. The alternative is still far, far worse
