Former President Bill Clinton really revealed details about his wife's health and details about her struggles after doctors discovered a blood clot between her brain and skull after she suffered a concussion from a fall, says GOP political strategist Karl Rove.
"She has a problem with the fact that I said she had a serious health incident and that I thought it would be a bigger part of her personal calculation" about whether to run for president, Rove said on Fox News' "Hannity" show Tuesday night, Politico reported
"If she's got a problem with that then take it up with her husband, who went out and declared to the country something that we didn't know," Rove said. "It was her husband who said, 'You didn't realize how serious this was? It took Hillary six months of really hard work to overcome it and I'm proud of her.' Look, that's something the American people didn't know."
The New York Post reported in May
that Rove suggested Hillary Clinton suffered brain damage during a fall. The strategist denied saying that phrase but said on Fox News she had "a serious health episode."
In his comments to Hannity, Rove was likely referring to the former president's comments last month at the Peterson Foundation, in which he commented that his wife's foes "went to all this trouble to say she staged what was a terrible concussion that required six months of very serious work to get over."
The subject of Clinton's health came up after host Sean Hannity asked Rove to address comments she made recently on NPR, where she said some in the media are "trying constantly to raise false canards and plant false information."
Rove responded that during her recovery, Clinton was wearing glasses "you have to wear if you have a traumatic concussion," and said she "doesn't like being confronted, by anybody, and that's not what the presidential candidate is going to be able to get away with."
Clinton admitted in a People magazine interview
earlier this month that she takes blood thinners after doctors discovered the blood clot.
"I did have a concussion and some effects in the aftermath of it, mostly dizziness, double vision," she said. "Those all dissipated. Blood thinners are my continuing treatment for the blood clot."
