Hillary Clinton faints, suffers concussion. Update!

This from TPM:  

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fainted and suffered a concussion, the Associated Press reported on Saturday. Clinton is now "recovering at home."
According to reports the Secretary of State was at home when this incident took place.

Hopefully they make sure she is fully recovered before returning to work.

The country needs her at the top of her game in 2016.

Update: I just heard that this fall happened s few days ago. She seems to be recovering well.

    I have fainted and hit my head due to dehydration before.

    I hope the GOP doesn't try to turn this around as a talking point to show Mrs. Clinton is not fit to work for our country.

    1. Actually while I was preparing this post, I stumbled upon a couple of incidents where Hillary has fainted in the past.

      So yes they might very well try to make something of this.

    2. Does anyone else think Hillary has looked (for some time now) like she is more seriously ill than just fainting from dehydration? I hope not

    Rather than try to encourage the 'conversation' with some remarks of your own, you have decided to just move on. It's obvious now that it's not important to you. I take solace in the chance that my truth is too difficult for you.

    2. You weren't encouraging a conversation, you decided to tar every American with the same brush while hectoring and lecturing with as much smug, self-righteous, superiority as you could muster.

      If you feel you have the "truth", why on earth would you take solace in it being too difficult for others to accept?

      What a pompous ass.

    3. It's amusing that someone who chooses to post as "Anonymous" would lecture other people about what truth is.

    Kinda like when Bush Sr barfed in the lap of the prime minister of Japan then passed out. Sometimes they push themselves too hard. Take a nap, mrs Clinton, you'll be fine.

      Or W choked on a pretzel? Hillary had too much to drink?

      Domestic violence?

      Watching her press conferences nearly every day for the last 4 years, she is unable to string together 4 words without looking at her notes on the podium. Pretty scary.

      Kerry as Secy. of State? Coakley vs Brown redux?

      fuck off sarah, Hillary has more brains and class in her little toe than your entire family tree has, you pathetic pos.

      @London Bridges,
      Really? You have watched all of her press conferences? I call BS. I find a lot of comfort in Hillary being our SOS, NOT scary at all!

    I've passed out during a bout with the flu as well. I was on the stairs at the time, but luckily I just crumpled where I was and sorta slid down the bottom few steps. My thumb seemed to catch the worst of it somehow. It happened so fast, I just remember waking up at the bottom of the stairs. My sister, when she was younger, used to faint if she was in the sun too long. I suspect it was dehydration as well. She used to say she didn't like water- holding out for the sweet stuff like Cool-aid or soda. She's over it and doesn't faint anymore. Speedy recovery Mrs C.

    Maybe we will see Sarah wishing a get well statement on her FB or Tweet.

    I wish Mrs. Clinton well too. The lady sure has worked her butt off, flying constantly throughout the world. She deserves a rest!!

    Plus, want her ready to run for President again as I think she would be elected. She has more experience than any other Republican out there. Plus, she has President Obama and President Clinton behind her. What could possibly be better?

      I wish people would stop pushing the Hillary 2016 meme. It infuriates me. She will be 69 years old by then, way too old to be elected to a stressful and demanding job such as being president. Besides, we don't need another Clinton in the White House, enough with the political dynasties. There are younger, fresher, more energetic, talented Democrats around--male and female-- that are potential presidential material. Let's give the younger generation a chance. If she can barely handle being SoS, how could she withstand the rigors and stresses of being POTUS? Besides, the Rightwingers hate her and would dig up every bit of dirt that ever happened during B. Clinton's presidency to smear her. Have you people forgotten how they hated Bill Clinton and Hillary? Going so far as accusing her of killing Vince Foster, Travelgate, and every other conspiracy nutball theory?

      I can see her campaign slogan now:

      "Hillary Clinton, 2016 - Because Peeing at a Urinal is highly over-rated when you're over 65!"
      Age never stopped a man from running, and it won't stop a woman either.

    I have passed out because of dehydration with the flu, as well. I was lucky, I was at the Dr. office when it happened and they caught me before I hit anything. My doctor right away said it was dehydration and started an IV. It's really hard to drink enough water when you're sick.

    Speedy recovery to you, Mrs. Clinton.

    It won't be long before Faux news hosts suggest that this is all a conspiracy to keep her from testifying before hearings on Benghazi episode.

    I wish her good health and feel she has been a fantastic SOS.

  9. She’s probably not pregnant… had to put some fun out there.

    She might have low blood pressure; I’ve fainted from that.

    I hope John McCain has the decency and common sense not to say Hillary Clinton is faking her injury to cover for the White House!

    1. Anita Winecooler6:02 PM

      Ha! Good One!!

    No Sarah Palin dream on.

    God is not opening a door for you.

    Hillary Clinton's concussion will not prevent Hillary from running for president in 2016.

    So stay home in Wasilla and keep writing your Palin family fitness book.

  12. Randall2:51 PM

    Yeah, darnit...

    Hillary has been working her ass off as SoS and she's logged more travel miles than any other Secretary of State ever has!

    I am a bit disappointed that she wasn't able to testify in front of that House Foreign Affairs circus last Thursday.

    Hillary's been through some real shit, gang, and she's no lightweight. She's been vetted and primaried, been dragged through Whitewater and Monicagate. For the past four years she's traveled around the world and been down in the trenches going tooth-and-nail with some of most bad-ass sons-a-bitches this wicked world has to offer...

    And the House Republicans thought they were going to bring her in and push her around a little bit on this Bengazi-gate nonsense...

    Get well, Hillary.
    Please get well and then maybe work out a little on the speed-bag as well as the heavy bag.
    You see...

    The tea-baggers think Sarah Palin is a pit-bull with lipstick -- we'd kind of like for them to see a real Rottweiler attack dog in action!

  13. Hillary has faithfully served our country for a great number of years. She surely deserves to be able to retire and do other things now. Bless her!

      I fully agree.

    A concussion is pretty serious business, even a minor one.
    Get Well Soon, Hillary!

  16. Anonymous6:55 AM

    Wow, I can't believe this crap. First she can't testify because she wants more facts when she should have every fact in hand. Then she tries the out of town dodge, then the I'm sick dodge, now this. This is an obvious attempt at getting out of testimony. No one saw her fall so all we have is some paid off doctors word. OK it's so easy to fool libs.

    Well I finally found the most gullible group of idiots in America. Can all of you please stop voting before Sean Penn gets elected to the white house. If you can't see what's going on you all must be public school teachers.

    I find this post interesting in that it brought out the trolls. What's up with that? Oh, and all you or most probable, one of you, piss off.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
