Inspired by All-Star Panel: Does Hillary Clinton have a ‘Benghazi allergy’? (Bret Baier, FoxNews.com 12/18/12), Hillary Clinton Must Still Answer Where She Was While Benghazi Attack Was Happening (Fox News Insider 12/19/12), and Hillary Clinton Hospitalized With Blood Clot (ABC News 12/30/12), and Hillary Clinton making ‘excellent progress,’ clot behind right ear (The Hill 12/31/12 17:07).
“Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton calls this a ‘diplomatic illness,’ and we heard from Victoria Nuland that it’s a bad bug. I think that perhaps it’s a Benghazi allergy—she seems to have a severe Benghazi allergy.” — Charles Krauthammer Dec. 18 on Fox News “I think the real question for the secretary of state to be asked is, ‘Where were you when all this was happening in real time and what were your orders?’ But apparently, she’s suffering from acute Benghazi allergy, which causes light-headedness when she hears the word ‘Benghazi’ or is being asked about Benghazi…The question about her responsibility which she ostensibly has taken, at least in public, remains very open and very troubling.” — Charles Krauthammer Dec. 19 on Fox News “In the course of a follow-up exam today, Secretary Clinton’s doctors discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago. She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours. Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion. They will determine if any further action is required.” – State Department press release Dec. 30 “In the course of a routine follow-up MRI on Sunday, the scan revealed that a right transverse sinus venous thrombosis had formed. This is a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage. To help dissolve this clot, her medical team began treating the Secretary with blood thinners. She will be released once the medication dose has been established. In all other aspects of her recovery, the Secretary is making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff.”– Statement today by Dr. Lisa Bardack and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi issued via State Department
Hillary is in the hospital
With a dangerous blood clot.
Right-wingers said she was faking.
I guess this proves she was not.
Charles Krauthammer and you others
Not specifically here named:
All of you should be
Deeply, remorsefully ashamed.
I know you all enjoy
Saying things to spite us,
But this takes the cake:
You’re the ones with Beghazi-itis.
For you, Mr. K.,
I feel particular disgust:
About the Churchill bust.
For the White House’s honest mistake.
Will you for your dishonest smear
A similar action take?
All you callous right-wingers
Who suggested Hillary lied:
You’d better apologize now
And think what you’d have said if she’d died.
Here’s Charles Krauthammer 12/18/12 and 12/19/12 on Fox.
Here’s Now’s 12/31/12 report on the GOP’s attacks on Hillary and her subsequent hospitalization, with Joy Reid subbing for Alex.
Update: Here are Rev. Al’s and Lawrence’s 1/02/13 reports on Hillary’s condition, and more calls for Krauthammer et. al. to apologize. Thankfully, Hillary is doing well and was released from the hospital today.
