Well, isn’t this just peachy? From the sound of things she may not make it through her book tour before having a stroke.
Hillary Rodham Clinton’s health issues are drastically worse than she has revealed publicly — and the potential presidential candidate tried to keep her medical information private for fear that it would damage her bid for the White House in 2016, according to a new book.
The 66-year-old former secretary of state has suffered more fainting spells than publicly known, is prone to have blood clots, and may be at serious risk of a stroke, according to the book, “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas,” by Edward Klein.
The medical scare that forced Clinton to be rushed to New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Dec. 30, 2013, revealed how serious the situation is.
“She has to be carefully monitored for the rest of her life,” doctors warned former President Bill Clinton before Hillary was released from the hospital, according to the book.
The book claims Hillary was taken to New York Presbyterian after a fainting spell and concussion that she suffered in her seventh-floor office at the State Department — not at her home, as claimed.
Apparently these people can’t tell the truth about anything.
Hillary was initially treated at a State Department facility and was transferred to her home to recover. Bill Clinton, however, insisted Hillary be flown to New York City and be treated by specialists there, Klein claims.
During her visit to the Manhattan hospital, the presumed 2016 Democratic front-runner was diagnosed with several problems, including the clots.
Hillary had a right transverse venous thrombosis, or a blood clot, between her brain and skull.
“The unique thing about clotting in the brain is that it could have transformed into a stroke,” a cardiac specialist with knowledge of Hillary’s condition says in the book.
The clots are especially a threat while flying, when blood pools while sitting, and she did a lot of flying while at the State Department.
In addition to a 2005 fainting spell during a speech in Buffalo, Hillary also fainted while boarding her plane in Yemen in 2009, which caused her to fall and fracture her elbow.
Boarding a plane? That’s not what was reported in 2009.
Crowley said Clinton was walking toward her official vehicle in the State Department’s basement garage when she fell about 5 p.m. Wednesday. At the time, she and Richard Holbrooke, the administration’s coordinator of policy on Afghanistan and Pakistan, were headed to a meeting at the White House.
After the fall, Clinton was examined in her office and then taken to The George Washington University Hospital, just a few blocks away, where her right elbow was X-rayed, Crowley said. He said he did not believe it was a severe fracture, but that he did not know the exact extent of her injury. She returned to her home at about 10 p.m.
Again, can these people ever tell the truth?
