'Every time I think about Trump I get allergic' Clinton said mid-coughing fit



Hillary Clinton's rally in Cleveland, Ohio, was interrupted by a coughing fit she jokingly said was triggered by GOP rival Donald Trump. 

"Every time I think about Trump I get allergic," the Democratic nominee said Monday in the midst of the coughing fit. 

Her running mate, Tim Kaine, clapped while the audience laughed in response, according to CNN. 

Kellyanne Conway, Trump's campaign manager, however, jumped at the opportunity and suggested that Clinton may be allergic to the media. 

"Must be allergic to media. Finally spent a minute w/ them," Conway wrote on Twitter.

Conway was referring to the fact that Clinton had not held a full-blown press conference since December 2015. 

Earlier on Monday, Clinton seemingly made an effort to answer more questions from the press by inviting her traveling press corps onto her brand new jet

According to CNN, this isn't the first time Clinton has had a coughing fit. 

Clinton coughed excessively during a Feb. 17 speech in Harlem, New York, and during an Iowa address at the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines on Jan. 25.
