"Karl Rove appeared on Fox News on Tuesday to double-down on his earlier insinuations that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) might have suffered some sort of traumatic brain injury that could prevent her from becoming president.
The New York Post reported Monday that Rove told a conference last week that Clinton had spent “30 days in the hospital.” “And when she reappears,” he recounted, “she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”
In fact, she spent three days in the hospital, and left wearing totally normal dark glasses.
Rove's former colleague Nicole Wallace had this to say:
“I worked with Karl for a long time. This was a deliberate strategy on his part to raise her health as an issue and, I think in his view, a legitimate line of questioning ahead of the next campaign,”
I can guarantee that, just like the birth certificate, this is going to become a source of endless baseless Republican attacks on Hillary if she decides to run. They will demand more and more medical records, and no matter what she produces, it will never be enough, so they can declare with righteous indignation that she is hiding a horrible secret which makes her unable to be President. This will be all over the right wing media within a couple of days, and like the birth certificate, it will never go away no matter how obvious the truth is.
And what a country we live in where, no matter what else happens, there is always a Karl Rove, ready to attach his name in public to the most disgusting smears, and there are always rich vultures like the Koch Brothers to provide the money to spread those smears.
