pneumonia can cause weakness and dehydration. on top of that, she was standing outside in the hot weatherth wearing long sleeves and pants. and that's a setup for further dehydration which could cause a drop in blood pressure and the kind of wobbly gait we saw. >> pelley: how fast does somebody recover from pneumonia? >> scott, that all depends on a number of factors. a person's age, their general o health, what is the size of then pneumonia, meaning how much of the lung is involved. we certainly don't know that at all. and what is the bug that is causing she is on antibiotics, that exactly what is being done to determine the organism that is causing it.t in general, patients with mild pneumonia can be treated with antibiotics as an outpatient very successfully and fully >> pelley: is it a good sign that she is at home? >> i think it is. a unless they are bringing the hospital into her house, i think it is a very good sign that she is at home rather than in the hospital. the sickest patients generally are hospitalized. >> pelley: dr. jon lapook, thank you, jon. we learned more about clinton's condition from her husband.on.

i think was correct, to cancel her campaign day. >> right. >> to make one more day to rest. >> is it possible that she will be away for weeks from the campaign trail? >> no, not a shot. i don't think can i hold her back another day. >> pelley: you can see charlie's interview tonight on "the charlie rose show" on pbs and tomorrow on "cbs this morning." donald trump said he hoped that clinton would be back on the today, he fired back against her attack of his supporters. here's major garrett. >> just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. the racists, sexists,t homophobic, xenophobic, islamophobic, you name it. >> reporter: hillary clinton named it all right, grosson

system not transparent, then sht deleted some email, not transparent either. but campaigns offer other ways in which transparency is tested. there are certain demands of the campaign. do you turn over your tax returns, your medical records. hillary clinton has done that. she has done more on the medical records than donald trump and turned over her tax returns. he has done nothing with tax returns and very little on health. so the question with him is ifim he is not transparent in the campaign, how transparent will he be as president? >> pelleow going forward with this deplorable comment of hers? >> it is a tug of war. right now hillary clinton to is on the defensive. donald trump would like that t comment to mean all of his supporters suggesting that she is disdainful of working people and it's an unappealing thing to be tagged hillary clinton would like thatn comment to really be about donald trump and point out thatt he said derogatory things about women, that even paul ryanve
