"Her coughs are much deeper than his and last much longer, so I don't know what her problem is," Gingrich stated.

"I hope she's all right," Gingrich said, adding that her coughing fit Monday was "a little disturbing."

Gingrich mentioned the concussion she suffered in 2012 while serving as secretary of State.

"Has that recovered? Does she now have a better memory than she used to? Was it only this period involving her emails that she had a bad memory?" Gingrich asked.

Later in the interview he was heard turning from the microphone to cough.

"Now you sound like Hillary," Hannity joked, asking if he could get him some water.

“By the way, yours didn’t last four minutes and 20 seconds, thank God,” Hannity told Gingrich.

"No, I'm in good shape," Gingrich responded. "At least I'm in better shape than Hillary."

Gingrich explained that he flies a lot and his throat gets dry.
 
"You have to keep hydrated big time," Hannity responded.
 
Clinton jabbed at Trump amid a coughing fit that erupted when she was on stage at a campaign rally Monday in Cleveland.
 
“Every time I think about Trump I get allergic,” Clinton said as she continued to cough.
 
Clinton's campaign has in recent weeks slammed insinuations from Trump and allies that she is in poor health, instead pushing Trump to reveal his full medical records.
