    Hillary Clinton's Illness Prompts Conspiracy Theories​



    By DANIEL HALPER


    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most famous current female political figure, has fallen ill. "In the course of a follow-up exam today, Secretary Clinton's doctors discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago. She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours," a spokesman for the former first lady said yesterday in a statement.

    Clinton's illness, and the fact that she has not been seen in public in the last three weeks, has prompted a slew of wild conspiracy theories.

    "EXCLUSIVE! HILLARY CLINTON BRAIN CRISIS," the National Enquirer headline reads. "Only days after The ENQUIRER exclusively reported that Secretary of State HILLARY CLINTON was at the center of a shocking brain cancer drama and was undergoing extensive secret medical tests, her reps went public with the news on Sunday night Dec. 30 that she was indeed hospitalized in New York City and disclosed that she was battling a blood clot that had formed following her head concussion earlier this month!"

    A blood clot's danger depends on where it is
    Dec 31,`12 - Blood clots like the one that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is being treated for following her recent concussion can occur for a host of reasons. How serious a clot is depends on where it is and why it formed. A Clinton aide would not say where hers is located.

    She's expected to make a full recovery and will be released as soon as her medication is adjusted and working for her. The clot was between her brain and skull but there was no stroke.

    The clot is between her brain and skull. VERY serious and, if untreated, could be fatal.

    The pubs and pots really came out from under their rocks on this one.

    Secty Clinton has served with distinction but for the right, its just another opportunity to spread their hate.
