Hillary Clinton Rushed To Hospital

In a scene reminiscent to what happened to Liam Neeson's wife, Hillary Clinton fell down at her home and suffered a concussion. She then got a blood clot and was rushed to the hospital and is expected to remain there for the next several days at least and no one is commenting on her condition. She fell after returning from Europe and apparently passed out due to dehydration. It is interesting how when Natasha Richardson fell, she appeared fine, but that he symptoms progressed much faster than Hillary who suffered the fall and concussion earlier this month.

Hillary had been ill when she fell, they are probably keeping a close eye on her...

Agent**It said...

Enty, her rep did comment: "Clinton's doctors discovered the clot Sunday while performing a follow-up exam, her spokesman, Philippe Reines, said. He would not elaborate on the location of the clot but said Clinton was being treated with anti-coagulants and would remain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital for at least the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor the medication."

Amber said...

I wonder if this is what sparked that NE Hilary brain tumor cover?

Ashlea said...

I've always liked Hills. Wishing her a speedy recovery.

Ashlea said...

I was just thinking the same thing amber!

FSP said...

At least she's not pregnant too. Hope she's okay.

phoenix said...

Agreed Ashlea. Best wishes and good health Hillary.

Ms Cool said...

The blood clot could be somewhere besides her brain - especially if she was on bed rest. I had pulmonary emboli - they are nothing to fool around with. I hope she is OK.

dee123 said...

Fingers Crossed for her.

Happy 2013! It's already almost 2am here in Sydney. On the way home. Fireworks are still the BEST in the world.

libby said...

Thank god they found it!

And yes, thank god Hills isn't preggo too--lol FSP!

Amber said...

@dee123 - Happy New Year!! and Happy New Year to anyone else that is already celebrating. :)

car54 said...

This is scary--I hope she follows their instructions and stays under observation til they clear her.

May Flower said...

Sadly, the pundits at Fox News (several of them) spoke openly on the air saying she's just faking it to avoid testifying on Benghazi. Sad excuse for journalism.

trudi said...

She hasn't looked well for the pass year and doesn't appear to be taking care of herself.

nancer said...

i'm betting this clot is in her leg. i don't think this is in any way like what happened to natasha richardson.

The Dude said...

How convenient she has a concussion and then a blood clot just when she's supposed to testify about her failure with Bengazi, a little too coincidental. My heart still goes out to the family who's father/husband was raped and brutally murdered because of her unwillingness to provide armed security. Not to mention the lives of the others that were lost!

Sarah said...

I had severe blood clots after a fall. Mine was from my left tor all the way up to my chest. Not fun. Wishing Hilary well.

SusanB said...

I heard the clot is in her leg as well. I like her, and will probably vote for her in 2016 but this story does seem a little odd. She had a routine follow-up visit on a Sunday? Evidently she hasn't been seen in public for 3 weeks - again, a little odd. I wish her well and a speedy recovery but yeah, the timing is a little off. And I've heard this speculation on CNN as well.

greenmountaingal said...

Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Jessie said...

How scary! I hope she has a speedy recovery.

I also hope Hilary has a full and speedy recovery, and that the stupid conspiracies can stay at a minimum here. There are plenty of places to stick those comments where they would be welcome (I can name a few...).

Tania said...

This is nothing like what happened to Natasha Richardson. Natasha hit her head and had a massive cerebral hemmorhage.

penelope said...

@FSP -- I second your comment. Ha Ha!

Sarah said...

Me said...

A friend of mine had a similar thing happen. His fall was about 2 1/2 years ago and he has been hospilized twice with clots since. He takes blood thinners and wears these tights. The clots have been In his legs. He stays for 2-3 days, they put the needle up the vein and then he cones home. Goes right back to work.

KendraWM said...

A clot and a brain bleed are 2 very different things. My father fell on ice in January 2009, hit his head hard, didn't think anything of it, woke up a few days before Easter (so that was what April I think) and could not move his legs. We thought maybe he had a stroke. Leading up to this he was having some back pain but nothing too major or alarming. He was rushed to the hospital where after and MRI it was discovered he had 2 small slow leaking brain bleeds. He was rushed into surgery the next day and the outcome was 50/50. They were able to stop the bleeds, but the nerve damage was done and his legs were shot and he was in a wheelchair until he died last year.

Always take any head injury seriously. Any hit to the head get checked out. You never know, it took months for it to get bad enough to cause symptoms for my dad. If it was caught earlier there would have been no damage and he would have been just fine.

Mooshki said...

There's no way Hilary would waste a good medical excuse on something that's as much of a non-issue as Benghazi. It's just a smoke-screen to cover up the demise of the GOP. And a pretty pathetic one at that. It's sure no MonicaGate! Hilary is stepping down as Secretary of State, so the whole issue is moot anyway. The conspiracy theories are out of control.

Dianne P said...

Yeah, I don't think it has anything to do with Benghazi (she's leaving anyway, so it would be easy to sacrifice her if they wanted to), but I think it has to do with Hillary being more ill than they let on. I love Hill (voted for her in the primaries in 2008) and wish her the best.

I hope this isn't the reflection of a longer-term or more serious health problem. Get better Hillary!

Egyptian Ankh said...

Get well soon Hillary! My dad's moniker for her is Capillary Hillary-fitting in this case.

Agent**It said...

Benghazi was BAU for the USA government. Sorry about the loss of life for the families involved.

discoflux said...

I hope she recovers well. I have the utmost respect for her.

Leah said...

I concur that she's been looking bad for awhile - maybe it's stress, old age, or illness. I hope is feeling well again soon.

SusanB said...

I agree she's been looking rough - but she's 65 - she's not a young girl any more. I was watching something the other day about her and it showed clips of her from 20-25 years ago and I thought how I'd hate to have old pictures of myself when I was young and pretty shown constantly, to remind people of how old I've gotten.

Or (and this is just a wild guess) perhaps she went in to have some work done on her face? If she's going to run for POTUS in 4 years, she wants to look good and unfortunately, women in the USA are often judged by how they look, not by their brains. I hate the double standard in this country. Every major country in the world except for Russia and China has elected a woman leader, but the US just lags in this regard - remember how badly Hillary was treated in 2008?

Kloie said...

Hope she will be ok!

gee-gee said...

How horrible to suggest that she is pretending to be injured because of Bengazi. Grow up, Dude.

Silly Girl said...

Hope she's OK. I'm not a Hillary supporter, but I'm ashamed of those who think she's faking this to get out of testifying. That's pathetic.
These things can be deadly.

Vera L- said...

What gee gee said.

Get well Hillary.

Staple611 said...

Yes, along with everyone else, I've not heard anyone say the clot is in her head, and I'm hoping it's not.

If there's one thing Hillary Clinton is NOT, it's afraid of the GOP. Pretty sure this is not an elaborate hoax.

just curious said...

Former President Bill Clinton was awaken in the middle of the night by a phone call detailing his wife's condition.Upon hearing the news,Clinton pulled out,put on his clothes and went home.

nancer said...

there really are some assholes on this site. so she's making this up? are you fucking kidding me? should we put her doctors under oath and let you grill them about this?

i think it's likely she had pain in her leg and they did a doppler and found a clot. that's why it happened on a sunday. some people are just unfuckingreal.

ReesesPeace said...

I hope she has a speedy recovery. I really like Hillary.

just curious said...

Hillary ain't running for shit anymore,she's too freakin' old.She thought she had the '08 election wrapped up but Obama step in.Not a big Obama fan but I'm glad he beat Hillz and threw her a bone afterwards.

Agent**It said...

She had a blood clot behind her right knee in '98. CBS news.

Unknown 1 said...

I really like Hilary too. Even if she is tough, why shouldn't she be? There's no way that she's faking this. Come the f on. Hilary rocks, she smart, tough, real, educated, knows the issues and isn't afraid of anyone. I wish her a speedy recovery to a long, healthy and fruitful continuation of her career.

Unknown 1 said...

Oh and sure, Benghazi was all her fault. yeah right. come on.

Lurky Loo said...

I am not a big Hillary fan, however I do wish her well and hope she has a speedy recovery. People can say what they want on here, but with the way the news propagandizes everything and the way our govt manipulates us at every level it is hard to know what to believe anymore. While I think her condition is genuine, I certainly wouldn't judge anyone for being suspicious.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I hope she is well soon.

Oh, and Faux News can go fuck itself.

Sarah said...

Blood clots are scary, a silent killer. Even being sick in bed too long (for a young person too) can start clots. Serena Williams got one on a long plane ride. Keep it moving!

Fairmaiden327 said...

Love the picture chosen. Hope she's OK.

Lurky Loo said...

@Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors,

"Faux News" isn't the only problem Cretin's News Network is no better when it comes to propaganda. If you truly want to understand what is going on in the world you have to read around and look at opposing news sources to get the real story. There are plenty of times that I've seen things that should have been reported on CNN or MSNBC that mysteriously weren't commented on at all. Same holds true for Fox obviously.

just curious said...

Women are judge by the looks just as men are judge by their wallets and social status.

"remember how badly Hillary was treated in 2008?"

'Member how badly Obama was treated by Hillary's camp? The whole question Obama's citizenship and faith was planted by Hillary.

Remember back in the 60's and 70's when the feminist movement along themselves with the Black Power movement.Fonda and Steinum(sp) holding up black power fists.You would've thought WW and BM were in the same boat but it was a lie.One of the biggest lies about racism in this country.
Looking at the aftermath of the Simpson Verdict and Obama winning the Democratic nomination,white women were pissed off.LOL
Go read some of the comments that feminists like Geraldine Ferraro and Roseanne Barr were saying about Obama,

All about Eve said...

Wishing her a speedy recovery. We need more people like her involved in making our country better.

Agent**It said...

Statistically it was the overwhelming number of caucasian women that re-elected Obama so times have changed in that respect. If you have a chance and are so inclined, watch PBS doc on David Geffen. Fascinating overall, but boy, he spares no punches in terms of his hatred of the Clintons. Which I did not know .

auntliddy said...

They wldnt know journalism if it smacked them right in their smug faces.

auntliddy said...

Yes, i always scheldule my clots to avoid unpleasant tasks.

auntliddy said...

She looks awful because she has been traveling the world, and her bidy rythems all mixed up. Get well soon!

auntliddy said...

Body

MadLyb said...

I hope she fully recovers soon. Scary!

JoElla said...

You know gang, I wonder if Hills was over ridden about Benghazi? She (IMO) usually doesn't mess up like that. She is tough and very thoural.

I don't blame the GOP for wanting answers, hell I want answers! I think we all should want them, and not take the official story as fact. Just way too many loose ends with it.

The quasi conspiracy theorist in me wonders if something more nefarious is going on. Like someone wants to quiet her.

If this was a Hillary mess up, I think she would have admitted it and owned it. A very rare thing in Washington.

off topic, a few years ago, I was staying in a hotel that had Reuters News TV (loved it! Wish my cable company had it) had a story about journalism, and how back during WW2, about how roughly 30ish % was sensationalized and full of propaganda, and now that has totally flipped, that over 60% is and only roughly 40% is actual news.

I found that stat very scary.

love/hate said...

I didn't see this above, but most clots come from the legs, most commonly from inactivity, smoking or birth control. Those clots usually get stuck in the tiny burns in the lungs, which Ihad. They can still kill you quite dead. Clots that form in oxidized blood have a chance to get stuck in the brain, which is a stroke. It makes sense that she'd feel crappy but not have clear reason, and why it maybe took awhile for her to go to hospital. I wish her all the best, that shit is scary.

Pookie said...

i'm sure she's receiving excellent care and i hope she makes a full and speedy recovery. i've never been a fan or supporter of her politics, but i do respect her drive and determination...not to mention she's a wife, a mother, and countless other things that make her very beloved to many people. godspeed.

Issaissi said...

Do the republican conspiracist and Obama dick riders ever take a break? Jeez.

Anyway, I have been saying for the longest Hillary doesn't look well. I just chalked it up to old age but maybe something more serious is wrong. Hope she is fine, though.

And, I agree about w/@susan. It doesn't matter what a woman accomplishes in her life, the only things people will focus on are her looks, hair and clothes. Hillary has achieved more than most women AND MEN can ever hope to achieve in her political career. Yet she is constantly on worst dress/looks list like she is some model or actress. Do you ever see any political men--with their beer bellies and comb overs--make those lists? hell no. And, you never will. I may not agree with everything she stands for but I admire her for all she has done.

Amartel said...

This is either very real, life-threatening, or it's bullshit to get out of testifying on Bengazi.

Don't kid yourselves, the Secretary of State was involved and knowledgeable about Bengazi issues and no amount of whining about Republicans and Fox (which is no more "faux" than any other news org and a lot less "faux" than most) is going to avoid that reality. It really does seem suspicious that she put off testifying for so long and now, on the eve of the appointment and confirmation of a new Secretary of State, keeps having medical issues that prevent her from testifying. Still, it could be real and serious so I'll hold a thought for her. Reserved. Tentatively. Why didn't she make herself available for testimony on this topic months ago? Like when it happened? Would you give a Republican a pass under the same circumstances? Are ya fair 'n' balanced? So partisan that you can't even contemplate the possibility that St. Hillage is faking? C'mon, now please: She is a Clinton!

JSierra said...

BBC is a great source for non biased reporting. We can speculate all we want but we the public will never know what happened that day in September.

What a shit way to ring in the new year. Hope you get better Hillary!

Call me yndy... said...

Well you know, we women can control our bodily functions with the power of thought. It's amazing some women can't figure out how to use it to avoid unpleasant experiences, no?

JSierra said...

Just read the clot is between her brain and skull. That coupled with the lack of comments from her camp lead me to believe it is really bad.

Rickatoo said...

More Breaking News into the Eyewitness Newsroom. Doctors say the blood clot Hillary Clinton is being treated for is in her head near her brain.

"If there's one thing Hillary Clinton is NOT, it's afraid of the GOP."

Ain't that the truth. Besides, they have something more pressing this week - like the fiscal cliff.

Amartel, perhaps she didn't testify before now because they didn't ask her to until December. Before that it was the Susan Rice witch-hunt, which the Senate wouldn't dare pull on Sec. Clinton. And because she can talk for days about how Congress severely cut the funding on State Dept overseas security.

I can only assume that people who think she would fake to get out of testifying think that because it's their own M.O., not hers.

Erik said...

The idea that Hillary Clinton, of all people, would fake an illness to get out of testifying before Congress is just ludicrous. No way is she faking this.

ms snarky said...

I like Hill very much. Even my jackass solidly Republican ex-husband came away deeply respecting her after a job-creation meeting.

and by the way, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. The woman is not well and undergoing treatment. good lord.

Amy in MI said...

This may be similar to what Natasha Richardson had - she had a subarachnoid hemmorage, which is at the lower base of the skull.....


Hillary has paved a lot of paths for ALL people, not just women. Hope she gets well soon

ABlake said...

Hahaha about a Clinton not wanting to testify before Congress.

I'm with Amartel. She is very much accountable for what happened in Bengazi (look up the role of SoS) and this is CERTAINLY suspicious timing.

But hey, doctors don't lie. Right?

figgy said...

Raped?

figgy said...

She's not even close to being "too old" to run in 2016. Child, please.

figgy said...

Exactly Mooshki, some Republicans are trying, trying, trying to set fire to.the Benghazi story, but it just won't light. Give up already. And I say this as a Republican myself.

just curious said...

Maybe Barack is just hanging her out to dry.He's been re-elected,therefore,she's useless.

Tuxedo Cat said...

The news seems pretty positive now. They've found the clot and even though it's close to the brain at least they can easily get to it.

Most of the battle was finding the damned thing, I guess.

She's a fighter, and her husband always has her back these days.

She must have had some crazy headaches along with that....

Agent**It said...

I don't see her running in 2016.

ash said...

Nobody was raped, where the f did you get that from? The Ambassador who was killed was a great man but he didn't have a wife or kids so don't waste your time feeling bad for a family that doesn't exist. He did have many close friends and other family that are mourning his loss and two of the other Americans who died had young kids - the whole thing is so sad.

auntliddy said...

Yes, i get all my info from geffen, a record producer. Not!!

auntliddy said...

YUou can look and look all day long, and there is nothing there. Bengazhi was just an horrible incident. Oh, you may find the fact that repub blocked extra funding for overseas embassy security.
