Nooooo: Hillary Clinton Hospitalized with Blood Clot Following Concussion

Illustration for article titled Nooooo: Hillary Clinton Hospitalized with Blood Clot Following Concussion

Our esteemed and beloved Secretary of State/Former First Lady/Woman You Wish Was Related to You was admitted to New York Presbyterian, where a blood clot stemming from a concussion she sustained earlier this month will be monitored for the next 48 hours. They better have the best doctors on all of Earth working on that woman, or they'll have to deal with the wrath of a humanity scorned.

Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines says her doctors discovered the clot during a follow-up exam today. He added that Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants.

According to Business Insider, Conservative pundits and bloggers have accused Clinton of faking the illness in order to avoid testifying in an open Congressional hearing about the Sep 11 U.S. Consulate attacks in Benghazi. Which, fuck them so much and so hard and forever. A pathetic effort from an embittered GOP that's so desperate to come up with a decent Obama admin scandal, they'll attack someone dealing with a HEALTH EMERGENCY. Of course, it's always worth noting that Republicans in Congress cut the budget for embassy security. I know we all know this is disgusting bullshit from the GOP, but they seriously need to STFU immediately.

My husband works for with/ tangentially Clinton and her administration among other politicians and diplomats. He was telling me that he has heard that Clinton has had some health problems for awhile now. And it wouldn't surprise me if that was the reason she wasn't going to be a second term SOS. It sounds like she has been running her body to the extreme in the past 4 years as SOS. She needs a well deserved break to recover.
