Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was hospitalized Sunday after doctors discovered a blood clot during a follow-up exam related to a concussion she suffered this month, her spokesman said.And second, a few Republican reactions after Clinton's concussion was originally reported.
Outgoing House Republican and all-around lunatic Allen West:
“I’m not a doctor, but it seems as though – that the Secretary of State has come down with a case of Benghazi flu,” West said on Fox News on Thursday morning.George Bush's recess appointed UN Ambassador and noted warmonger John Bolton:
"You know, every foreign service officer in every foreign ministry in the world knows the phrase I am about to use. When you don't want to go to a meeting or conference, or an event, you have a 'diplomatic illness,' Bolton told Van Susteren. "And this is a diplomatic illness to beat the band.Fox News' Megyn Kelly:
Today’s item on the menu: the virus with “impeccable timing” (as Crowley put it) that caused Hillary Clinton to faint, get a concussion and cancel her appearance before a Congressional committee investigating Benghazi later this week.The pride of the Washington Post Charles Krauthammer, who suggested that Clinton was suffering from:
Kelly, with suspicion dripping from her voice asked, “What’s really going on?”
... acute Benghazi allergy which causes lightheadedness when she hears the word Benghazi or is being asked about it.Tucker Carlson hack:
We’re told she collapsed and hit her head and got a concussion, and that’s why she can’t testify about Benghazi this week. And we’re supposed to just take her word for it. [...]The mea culpas should start in 5, 4, 3 ... never.
If she has a concussion, let’s see the medical report. Let’s see some proof that she’s not just stonewalling. If it’s true, then we can all wish her a speedy recovery. But it’s ridiculous to expect us to take her word for it.
