Karl Rove Insinuates Hillary Clinton Has Brain Damage

Just when you think Karl Rove couldn't go any lower, he exceeds himself.
Karl Rove Insinuates Hillary Clinton Has Brain Damage

Well! I don't know what to say, except that perhaps this is a measure of the desperation Republican operatives feel at the thought of facing the Clinton juggernaut in 2016. But even for Karl Rove, this is a new low: Not only insinuating that Clinton has brain damage, but to outright lie by saying she spent a month in the hospital? I'd say he should be ashamed of himself, but Karl Rove has left behind anything resembling a conscience long, long ago:

Karl Rove stunned a conference when he suggested Hillary Clinton might have brain damage.

Onstage with Robert Gibbs and CBS correspondent and “Spies Against Armageddon” co-author Dan Raviv, Rove said Republicans should keep the Benghazi issue alive.

He said if Clinton runs for president, voters must be told what happened when she suffered a fall in December 2012.

The official diagnosis was a blood clot. Rove told the conference near LA Thursday, “Thirty days in the hospital? 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.”

Rove repeated the claim a number of times to the audience. Clinton’s rep said, “Please assure Dr. Rove she’s 100 percent.”

Despite Rove’s claims, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was discharged from New York Presbyterian Hospital after spending three days undergoing treatment for a potentially life-threatening blood clot.
