Since it’s Saturday, we have a little more latitude on what Charlie let’s us post. This breaking news simply makes me “shake my head.” On one hand you get completely ticked off that a politician can get away with something like this; on the other hand you think “wow, she’s goood.”
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party’s frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, fainted and suffered a concussion — and is now recovering at home — according to a statement from the State Department.
According to the AP, Clinton, “who skipped an overseas trip this past week because of a stomach virus,” sustained a concussion after fainting, and is now recovering at home and being monitored by doctors.
An aide, Philippe Reines, says Clinton will work from home next week, at the recommendation of doctors (which will prevent her from testifying at congressional hearings on Thursday into the September 11 attack against a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador).
You can consider this an Open Thread for national politics, but don’t get crazy.
