Karl Rove: Hillary Clinton might have brain injury

Republican strategist Karl Rove suggested last week that Hillary Clinton suffers from brain damage, according to a new report.

The New York Post’s Page Six section reported Monday that Rove, appearing at a conference with former Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs and CBS correspondent Dan Raviv last Thursday, recently waded into the former secretary of state’s health issues. In 2012, Clinton — a top possible 2016 Democratic contender — suffered from a blood clot that temporarily prevented her from testifying about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. According to the report, Rove said the Benghazi issue should continue to be pushed.

“Thirty days in the hospital?” Rove said, according to the report. “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.”

After an initial trip to the hospital for medical tests, Clinton was later admitted for three days to a hospital in New York City. At the time, several Republicans questioned whether Clinton’s health problems were valid. On Monday, Democrats and others on Twitter were quick to slam Rove, and the Democratic National Committee blasted out criticism soon after.

Clinton, no stranger to scrutiny, tends to be viewed more favorably when she is perceived as being under unfair assault, causing the Democratic base to rally around her. Still, the comment is a way to inject into the bloodstream a topic that Republicans and even privately some Democrats have discussed quietly: whether the 66-year-old’s health is strong enough for a presidential campaign.

I can think of several possibilities:

1. It’s true, and Hillary is trying to keep it a secret for the time being because she loves the attention.

2. It’s a bunch of crap made up by one of the original ratfuckers, Karl “Turdblossom” Rove, to undermine Hillary’s 2016 run.

3. It’s a false flag operation by those devious Clintons, intended to discredit the GOP and gain sympathy for Hillary.

4. It’s a ratfucking operation by a Democrat who wants to eliminate Hillary as the 2016 front-runner. (Cough, cough, Joe Biden.)

What do you think?

The last word goes to TFG:

    It’s been so long since I heard Karl Rove. I wonder if Bush’s Secrets paid off FOXNEWS to hire such Jackass.
    Back to Hillary. Brain damaged or dementias. No need to hit the streets. She clinched the White House already.
    Its petty $6B and she got it. Let’s see which country the Republicans will invade to convince Koch Brothers burn $7B to get Ann Coulter instead of Hillary as next US President.

    BTW: For those of you who don’t know, Roger Stone is a notorious GOP operative/journalist. If you have some sleazy info on a Democrat that you want released to the media, Stone is your guy.

    But as we all know, just because it’s sleazy doesn’t mean it ain’t true.

    FYI: Charlie White got robbed last night on DWTS. But it disproves my theory that they wanted to set up a final pitting Charlie against Meryl. Now it’s Meryl vs. Amy Purdy.

    Meryl is the better dancer, but Amy is amazing considering she is a double-amputee.

    Candace Cameron and that Brit Pop singer are also-rans.

  4. Lulu says:

    Hillary isn’t well. As a Clinton watcher for many years I can see that she doesn’t have the energy or edge she used to have. I don’t think her health issues are dangerous but rather the nagging, draining, inconvenient sort for a high energy person who is learning to deal with them (and vain enough to try and cover them up).. She has to limit herself and her output. I think she was wearing down while SOS and thus her mess with Benghazi. A big part of it is simply the aging process. Roger Stone has eyes just like I do. He is not passing on any inside information. Those of us of a certain age and health can see it in others. If she was already in the presidency she could deal with it. But running and then the enormous effort it takes to get everything going? No. Too late. And fuck that asshole Karl Rove.

    • leslie says:

      I agree, Lulu. As a person who has passed the 66 yrs barrier and is still working in a high stress job, I can attest that my memory is fine, but my ability to express what I think and what I need has shrunk considerably. (I sometimes find myself saying (to myself), “use your words” when I’m flustered.) I also know that my energy has diminished and so has my tolerance for what I might perceive as attacks on my integrity or judgment. So that I might have said “what difference does it make?” several times over in my job. (This is not a comment on what HRC said, but an example of my own aging process. And it ain’t any fun!) I would urge her NOT to run and to dole out her time to the issues that are dear to her. She would have been an awesome POTUS in 2008. I believe she has compromised and has been compromised, and I believe she is fighting with herself for many of those decisions that are now hurting her and us.
      and f*ck Karl Rove and the horse he rode in on.

        • trixta says:

          Suddenly we have standards for POTUS?!!!!!!!!!! The bar for POTUS has been lowered so much by GWB & BO, why not have a president with “brain damage”? I mean “Brain damage or not,” HRC is still more talented than those two bozos put together, 43 & 44. Also, she doesn’t golf, play basketball, or take numerous vacays, so in terms of presidenting-labor she’s still superior to those jerks. Furthermore, Reagan proves that you don’t really have to have a fully functioning brain or memory to be POTUS. In fact, amnesia suits presidents quite well in times of turmoil. As I said, the standards have been pretty low for the guys at the top of the totem pole. If we seek perfection in HRC, and by extension any woman candidate, then we will never elect a woman president.

          Whether one wants to support her for Prez in 2016 based on her politics and stint as SOS is another matter. I wouldn’t blame her if she decides not to run though. As for me, I still support her candidacy, although I would like for all of the facts to come out on Benghazi — but in a fair way. Will I change my mind about her? Will I even vote in the next election?
          Who knows?

          BTW, Rove & Donna Brazile (i.e BO) conspired to knock HRC out of the primaries in 2008, so Rove’s latest rat-fucking shenanigans don’t surprise me in the least. He has always wanted Jeb to be 45. And I have the suspicion that he and BO’s team made some kind of pact to knock Hillary out in 2008.

          • angienc says:

            If by “suddenly” you mean “always” then yes: we have always had standards that the person elected to POTUS was physically and mentally competent to perform the job. Now the fact that some issues came out about Reagan AFTER he left office about his mental capacity during his 2nd term (and, btw, same deal with JFK and his Addison’s disease) doesn’t prove that the public consciously voted FOR those people with such health issues. IF Hilary did have some kind of stroke or something & you still want to vote for her, that’s fine. But pretending that others should NOT have concerns about voting for her (again, IF true) is ludicrous & you sound like a hysterical for insisting otherwise or that these health concerns *only* (or “suddenly”) apply because she’s a woman.

          • The Klown says:

            If Hillary Clinton is elected president she will be 69 years old when she takes office. While that is hardly senile she will be past the age when most people retire.

            The presidency is a physically and mentally demanding job. We have a right to know if a candidate will be up to it for at least one full term.

            Hillary at 70% may indeed be better than some previous presidents were at 100%, but that doesn’t mean her age and health are not a legitimate concern.

            Back at the beginning of 2008 my initial reaction to Barack Obama was that he was too green for the job, but that with eight years of seasoning he might make a good POTUS. That’s why it made sense to go with Hillary first, with Obama as her VP. But Hillary is not the same person she was six years ago.

          • lorac1 says:

            I agree, Trixta. And I also have some questions about Benghazi, but I’ll wait for closer to the primaries when she feels it’s time to discuss it, rather than outright condemn her now without knowing the whole picture.

            Geez, we had a president in a wheelchair. And I don’t get the people (Rush?) saying she’s wearing “brain damage glasses” – anyone who has ever seen her earlier photos knows she needs “coke bottle” glasses if she isn’t wearing her contacts. And most people don’t bother with their contacts when they’re not feeling well, particularly in the head. So, the glasses when she was recuperating don’t mean anything.

            If Einstein lost some brain elasticity as he aged, he’d still be smarter and more capable than 99% of us. Hillary has always worked hard (remember she took no vacations during the primaries while the much younger Obama had to take 3?). So yes, she’s a few years older now – but her slowing down is stlll going to result in much more productivity than for most of us.

  5. 49erDweet says:

    I’m thinking the only reason Rove is kept around these days is to stir up the crap. I feel sorry for his horse, but not him.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    Gonna replay my broken record here, had she been seriously thinking of running for President, shoulda stayed in the Senate, shoulda run for NY Gov, coulda, woulda. I don’t think her gig as SoS proved she can handle the Presidency, not the best track record in that position either. If that’s a qualifier (foreign policy cred?) then why wouldn’t John Kerry want to run again?

    If the Dems are serious about fielding the First Woman President, why aren’t they putting more ladies in the Governor’s seats ? Executive experience is helpful, just look at Obama’s failures!

    I think Hillary will keep up the tease to sell books, wait til after 2014 midterms to make an announcement either way.

    Ok, my pick today for President in 2016, Scott Walker 🙂

  7. helenk3 says:


    this does not fall under the tinfoil hat meme but more of history repeating it self in Europe and something we should pay attention to

  8. helenk3 says:

    what if Hillary does decide not to run, Do not think too many want Joe Biden as president. Who are the rising stars for the dems?
    Elizabeth Warren does not look too good, can not see her really raising the troops
    there are not that many women of accomplishment in the democratic party. they have set up expectations for a woman to run but have not set up a good female candidate other then Hillary.

    • DeniseVB says:

      If anything rises from the Dem side it will be a Governor, like Cuomo. Maybe a big city Mayor like Rahmbo or Cory Booker ? Then there’s “fresh faced” Terry McAuliffe in VA, perhaps former govs, now Senators, Mark Warner and Tim Kaine. I don’t see any strong ladies on the bench as of now. I think there will be many hats tossed in the ring after midterms when they can safely run against Obama’s record. The Dems would be stupid not too.

      • trixta says:

        Some on the left — even Nadar, but I’m sure he really wants Warren — want Oprah to run for Prez. UGH!

        • The Klown says:

          I gotta feeling that Oprah would not benefit from coverage where she doesn’t control the cameras.

          • trixta says:

            Yeah. Also, I can’t imagine Oprah making really tough life and death decisions.

            I’m afraid my comments above struck a nerve with some who characterized them as “hysterical”. Didn’t mean to offend, but they were meant as a snarkey response to that rat-fucking Karl Rove and his latest attack on Hillary. Again, didn’t mean to offend those here who are concerned about her health, etc. If she isn’t well, of course she shouldn’t run, but for Rove to attack her in this matter without knowing the facts about her health really pissed me off. Karl Rove can go F&*(&K himself!

    Both sides are clearing the decks for an Elizabeth Warren run. The Democrats because she appeals to bot the old and the new hippies and will be another puppet for the real power behind the throne. The Republicans know she’s a nutcase who will be unable to keep it hidden long enough to make it through the campaign. She’s the perfect Democrat to run. If the Republicans can keep from nominating someone even crazier, she’s a gift.

    • SHV says:

      There is something seriously wrong with Elizabeth Warren. After 2008, she was/is the only candidate that I financially supported in 2011. Then the Indian “thing” came out and instead of just saying it’s “family lore”, she kept doubling down on a lie. Harvard Law kept using her as an example of their diversity and she went along with it. Then it came out that she was doing legal work out of her Harvard law office without a Mass. law license, when, as a Law prof. at Harvard, all she had do was send in the paper work, no Bar exam needed. Finally she made a lot of money doing appeals work for asbestos companies. There is something seriously wrong with her.

      • elliesmom says:

        It didn’t take a lot of effort on my part to get invited to one of her get togethers when she was running for the Senate. Something just feels off about her. The lies came out later. But she is definitely star struck about being in politics. She’ll run if Hillary doesn’t.

    I don’t think the Republicans would try to take out Hillary this early so it has to be a Democrat trying to move Hillary off the scene. It would be better for Republicans to let Democrats settle on Hillary and then knock her feet out from under her. In fact I think Hillary may be the Republican dream Democrat candidate cause she has some easy shots that can be fired at her.

  35. The Klown says:

    Imma gonna go ahead and shamelessly plagiarize this whole thing:

    When Barack Obama was running for the presidency, there were a number of people who warned he wasn’t ready for prime time – that he’d never really “done anything or run anything”. That he had never demonstrated any penchant for leadership at any time in his life, nor had he ever had any executive experience. That most of his adult life had been political campaigns for the next highest office – moving directly from one to the next with few if any accomplishments in-between.

    Those people were shouted down by their “betters” claiming Mr. Obama was hip, wicked smart, charming, “with it”, confident and a master of social media. He would change the dynamic in Washington, charm the world into doing his bidding and calm the rising seas etc., etc., etc.

    Eliot Cohen, in a Wall Street Journal op/ed, says instead, we’ve got a bunch of people in the administration that basically and unsurprisingly act like teenagers:

    Often, members of the Obama administration speak and, worse, think and act, like a bunch of teenagers. When officials roll their eyes at Vladimir Putin‘s seizure of Crimea with the line that this is “19th-century behavior,” the tone is not that different from a disdainful remark about a hairstyle being “so 1980s.” When administration members find themselves judged not on utopian aspirations or the purity of their motives—from offering “hope and change” to stopping global warming—but on their actual accomplishments, they turn sulky. As teenagers will, they throw a few taunts (the president last month said the GOP was offering economic policies that amount to a “stinkburger” or a “meanwich”) and stomp off, refusing to exchange a civil word with those of opposing views.

    In a searing memoir published in January, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates describes with disdain the trash talk about the Bush administration that characterized meetings in the Obama White House. Like self-obsessed teenagers, the staffers and their superiors seemed to forget that there were other people in the room who might take offense, or merely see the world differently. Teenagers expect to be judged by intentions and promise instead of by accomplishment, and their style can be encouraged by irresponsible adults (see: the Nobel Prize committee) who give awards for perkiness and promise rather than achievement.

    If the United States today looks weak, hesitant and in retreat, it is in part because its leaders and their staff do not carry themselves like adults. They may be charming, bright and attractive; they may have the best of intentions; but they do not look serious. They act as though Twitter and clenched teeth or a pout could stop invasions or rescue kidnapped children in Nigeria. They do not sound as if, when saying that some outrage is “unacceptable” or that a dictator “must go,” that they represent a government capable of doing something substantial—and, if necessary, violent—if its expectations are not met. And when reality, as it so often does, gets in the way—when, for example, the Syrian regime begins dousing its opponents with chlorine gas, as it has in recent weeks, despite solemn deals and red lines—the administration ignores it, hoping, as teenagers often do, that if they do not acknowledge a screw-up no one else will notice.

    It is a pretty fair and devastating summary of an immature, selfie-taking, hashtag loving administration. Intentions speak louder than action in their world. They don’t take criticism well. And they are about as petty as it comes when talking about their opposition. They demand respect for the man in office, but the man in office shows no respect to those whose views differ from him.

    He is also given very little if any respect in the world because he’s really done nothing to earn it (and quite a bit to unearn any he had when he took office). Hostile nations, knowing how thin skinned this administration is, openly taunt the President and his policies. They fear no reprisal from the US. Iran recently declared victory over the US in Syria. Russia – well Russia has simply decided the US isn’t a real threat as it plays out its expansionist intentions. Even our allies have openly criticized the administration for their inept handling of foreign policy.

    We live in a very dangerous world, one in which the predators are always looking for an opening (usually in the form of a power vacuum) of which they can take advantage. This administration has provided no leadership whatsoever during its tenure and that power vacuum has developed during our unilateral withdrawal from our previously prominent position in the world. And just like a bunch of teenagers, this administration is sure that it is the fault of everyone but themselves.

    After all, their intentions were pure … or something.

    • 49erDweet says:
