Last night conservatives who once questioned the Hillary Clinton concussion story were taking some heat on Twitter after Clinton’s people released a statement that she was hospitalized for treatment of a blood clot. Of course, the instant lefty-medical experts had their smoking gun: concussion=blood clot!
Fast forward to this morning where right-wing conspiracy sites such as The Daily Beast (that I linked to on The Feed earlier today) and NBC News are daring to question Hillary’s condition. Politico reports on the NBC conspiracists:
The top science reporter for NBC News raised questions Monday about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s hospitalization, raising the possibility the blood clot causing isn’t linked to an earlier concussion.
“It’s not exactly clear what is happening with Secretary Clinton’s health,” NBC News chief science and health correspondent Robert Bazell said.
“All we have is a statement from her office. The hospital isn’t saying anything and the statement from her [office] says that she had this blood clot that stemmed from the concussion and she’s being treated with blood-thinning drugs,” Bazell continued. “The problem is that usually when blood clots come from concussions, they can’t be treated with blood [thinners.] So either it’s not really related to the concussion and she’s got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there’s something else going on that we’re not being told. And right now, we’re just sort of seeking that clarification and hoping for the best as she’s being observed.”
Earlier I wrote on The Feed, “What’s really wrong with her doesn’t much matter — from a political point of view — at this point. On a personal note, however, here’s hoping it’s nothing too serious,” but I want to amend that a little.
There is a chance that Clinton’s health problems preceded the election, and that should have been disclosed. Another open question — if she did have health problems prior to the election — did Team Obama keep them quiet to help run out the clock on the Benghazi investigation prior to the election day?
