I got worried when I heard she fell, then I remembered who she is and the kind of health care she’s had access to for 20 years and figured her bones are probably like steel beams. And how long before the usual suspects start nattering that it’s all b.s. to get out of testifying on Benghazi?
Washington (CNN) — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sustained a concussion after becoming dehydrated and fainting, and will no longer testify Thursday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Clinton had been suffering from a stomach virus at the time, according to a statement on Saturday from Philippe Reines, deputy assistant secretary of state.
She is being monitored by doctors and is recovering at home. She was never hospitalized, Reines said.
“At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon,” Reines said.
Secretary Clinton had been scheduled to testify on Capitol Hill Thursday about the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, in September that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador.
… Walsh suffers from one of the worst cases of verbal diarrhea recorded in history. (He yelled at his constituents in a coffee shop, told the president to stop lying, said the president was elected only because he was African-American, mocked Duckworth’s service on multiple occasions.) And as recently as yesterday, Walsh doubled down on his criticism on Duckworth…
UPDATE: Here’s the entire segment. I love the very, very, very end:
By the way, did Rep. Scumbag say “Ashleigh” enough for you?
Per The Miami Herald, the medical report detailing George Zimmerman’s injuries was put together the day after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin. A few questions are finally answered:
The day after he killed Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman went to a clinic with a broken nose, black eyes and two cuts on his head, but the physician’s assistant determined he didn’t suffer any head trauma, newly released medical records show.
Zimmerman declined to go to an ear, nose and throat specialist even though it was recommended, the physician’s assistant who attended him twice noted. [...]
The medical records document several injuries, but also state that the only reason Zimmerman sought medical attention was because he needed a doctor’s note to return to work, Duval County Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda said in court last week.
The black eyes were consistent with the nose injury, but he didn’t need stitches for the two cuts on his head because they were already healing. He was also on “a variety of medications” for various ailments.
So to recap, he had a broken nose but no head trauma, felt good enough to avoid going to a specialist (ignoring advice, just as he ignored the “we don’t need you to” follow Trayvon Martin advice from the dispatcher), and he only asked for medical help because he needed a doctor’s note for work.
