Karl Rove is busily stirring the 2016 pot, not-so-subtly suggesting last week that Hillary Clinton may have brain damage. At a conference near LA Thursday, Rove brought up the December 2012 fall, concussion, and subsequent blood clot that delayed Clinton from testifying about the Benghazi attack, Politico reports. Page Six, which originally reported the incident, notes that Rove made the point multiple times, and said that if Clinton runs for president, she must be honest with voters about her diagnosis. One representative quote:
- "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."
Clinton's rep was firm in responding: "Karl Rove has deceived the country for years, but there are no words for this level of lying. [Clinton] is 100%. Period."
