UPDATE: Canker sores. You can’t make this stuff up. Hillary now can’t testify on Benghazi because she has canker sores. No, I am not kidding, although it does seem like a joke. ”According to a State Department spokesperson, such testimony is doubtful as Secretary of State Clinton is suffering from “really bad canker sores.” First it was a very long stomach virus that took weeks to recover from. Next it was a concussion that rendered her unable to leave the house. Now it’s canker sores? What’s next? Achy gums? Painful hangnails? Bad hair? (Oh wait, that’s been true for a year. ) My money’s on a painful fall on the ice this week, twisted ankle, bent knee, ringing head.
No one has seen Hillary Clinton for three weeks. At this time of year she normally has a party at her house for close women friends. She normally attends the State Department Christmas party. She didn’t attend the President’s announcement that he is nominating John Kerry to follow her as Secretary of State, although the President said she very much wanted to be there. She made no appearances when Senator Daniel Inouye died and was lying in state. Where is she?
Hillary hasn’t been seen anywhere since she returned from her last trip on December 7th. First we were told that she had a stomach virus. Later, on December 15th, we were told that Hillary Clinton would not be available to testify on the Hill at the hearings on Benghazi because she had fallen and sustained a concession.
Where is she? After three weeks, one has to wonder if Hillary is seriously ill. Surely she isn’t in hiding for weeks to avoid testifying about Benghazi. I think we can all agree that she hasn’t been looking well over the last year. What’s wrong with her? How ill is she?
