Illustration for article titled Hillary Clintons Brain Is Still Doing Fine and Doctors Expect a Full Recovery

In case you're not up to speed, our #1 gal Hillz has been hospitalized with a blood clot since Sunday, which she acquired after fainting from a bad stomach virus. Today, doctors revealed the location of the clot: her brain.

Secretary Clinton spent her second night at the hospital Monday, where she is being treated for a blood clot that formed in her head following a concussion she suffered weeks ago. Doctors discovered the clot on Sunday in an MRI.

"This is a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear," her doctors, Dr. Lisa Bardack and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi, said in a statement. "It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage."

Clinton's doctors said they need to monitor how she responds to her medications, which include blood thinners, before she is released.

Hope for what? The only reason she's even in the position she is is because of who her husband is. And if she's a feminist example of a strong and powerful woman, it doesn't say much for feminism. She's a horrible, horrible person, and a cold, shrill bitch, even by feminist standards. It's not a good thing that there are people here who would vote for a person like that to be president, just because she's a woman.
