Conservatives Claim Hillary Clinton Blood Clot, Hospitalization Faked

Post image for Conservatives Claim Hillary Clinton Blood Clot, Hospitalization Faked

When Hillary Clinton fainted from dehydration after the flu earlier this month, conservatives, like Allen West, called it the “Benghazi Flu,” in an attempt to claim she was refusing to testify before Congress on Benghazi. Now that the Secretary of State has been hospitalized with a blood clot after her concussion, of course, they’re apologizing, right?

Of course not.

Fox New commentator and right wing nut Monica Crowley labeled Hillary Clinton’s flu “a virus with impeccable timing,” on Twitter and in an exchange on Fox News with anchor Megyn Kelly, as Media Matters reported:

Kelly asked Crowley, “What’s really going on? I mean, she fainted sometime last week and can’t show up this Thursday for a previously scheduled testimony? I mean, there was speculation, I want all the viewers to know, about whether she’d really go” to the Benghazi hearing even before her illness. Kelly then said, “I’m not suggesting she didn’t get a concussion. But there is a legitimate question about, is — do we believe this is an excuse and that she really will show up to testify?” Crowley responded by referring to Clinton’s illness as “this virus with apparently impeccable timing.”

Fox News contributor John Bolton told host Greta van Susteren that when foreign service officers “don’t want to go to a meeting or conference or event,” they have “a diplomatic illness. And this is a diplomatic illness to beat the band.”

Almost former Congressman Allen West had said, “I’m not a doctor, but it seems as though – that the Secretary of State has come down with a case of Benghazi flu.”

And this, via Daily Kos:

The pride of the Washington Post Charles Krauthammer, who suggested that Clinton was suffering from:

… acute Benghazi allergy which causes lightheadedness when she hears the word Benghazi or is being asked about it. Tucker Carlson hack:

We’re told she collapsed and hit her head and got a concussion, and that’s why she can’t testify about Benghazi this week. And we’re supposed to just take her word for it. [...]If she has a concussion, let’s see the medical report. Let’s see some proof that she’s not just stonewalling. If it’s true, then we can all wish her a speedy recovery. But it’s ridiculous to expect us to take her word for it.

Of course, all the above and more have now apologized, right? Retracted their hate statements, bowed their heads in shame, right?


Crickets, from them all.

But who is still speaking?

Asinine conservatives on Twitter and on blogs are now claiming Hillary Clinton being hospitalized for a blood clot, which was announced this evening, is a fraudulent attempt to dodge testifying about Benghazi.

The people in America have become so vile.

Huntercgo December 31, 2012 at 8:43 am

I'm surprised they're not demanding to see her birth certificate.

EdinOcala December 31, 2012 at 10:03 am

Who cares what Allen West says about anything….didn't he used to be somebody? Not really. The right will do or say anything to discredit Hillary…..2016 the race is on.

Quite agree that a small but vocal number of people seem to have lost their sense of decency.
If they doubt Clinton's word and that of her doctors they should be able to make their own inquiries.
I'm glad to say that Clinton is almost certainly far above their level of cheap slander.
Fortunately not everyone here in the UK associates America with the sort of nastiness on display against Clinton.
There are other rather similar sorts of examples of decency failure in the UK also. Please do not treat them as representative!

zotric December 31, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Doubtless Hilary Clinton is able to deal with criticism, whether or not justified, over Benghazi.
To suggest she would use a faked illness to avoid testifying casts the accusers in a very poor light.
Furthermore she has just issued a statement that she WILL testify when well enough.
This is not funny because it lengthens, just a little, a bleak shadow that lies over the quality of American democracy as perceived. However, the current episode is a minor slanderous spat, as I should think Clinton would agree: she hardly needs people to defend her against such nonsense.
I (in the UK) and, I'm sure, almost everyone here would wish Clinton a speedy recovery so that she can properly face her critics in a civilized debate based on evidence.
But she must not be rushed into a potentially dangerous situation by people who appear to hate her on a level far beyond reason.
Incidentally, here is the UK, there are equivalent decency failures so I'm casting no stones at America.
