The New York Post is reporting that Republican strategist Karl Rove is questioning whether Hillary Clinton might have serious brain injuries after suffering from a blood clot in December 2012 after falling in her home. The fall and subsequent hospitalization delayed Mrs. Clinton’s appearance in front of Congress for testimony about the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi.
“Thirty days in the hospital?” Rove said, according to the Post. “And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”
Rove made the comments when he appeared at a conference last week with former Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs and CBS correspondent Dan Raviv.
Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill dismissed the accusations. “Karl Rove has deceived the country for years, but there are no words for this level of lying. She is 100 percent. Period.”
