(CNN) – Those black rimmed glasses that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has worn since returning to work following a blood clot in her head were mandated by her doctors, according to one of her top aides.
"She'll be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion," Philippe Reines said. "With them on she sees just fine."
Clinton was discharged from a New York hospital on January 3, three days after she was admitted for treatment of a blood clot in a vein between her skull and brain. She had been admitted after doctors found the clot during a medical test related to a concussion she suffered in December.
The secretary was treated with blood thinners to dissolve the clot, which did not result in a stroke or any neurological damage. Clinton's concussion occurred when she fainted because of dehydration caused by the flu.
The rectangular frames Clinton has sported since leaving the hospital became the subject of scrutiny by New York Magazine, which published an article called "Seven Things Hillary Clinton Was Saying When She Adjusted Her Glasses."
The analysis of Clinton's gestures during this week's Benghazi hearings included the "Is This Dude for Real?" adjustment and the "Ugh, I Wish I Still Had a Concussion" adjustment.
Of the article, Reines said Clinton "got a kick out of this when she saw it crystal clearly."
"The analysis of Clinton's gestures during this week's Benghazi hearings included the "Is This Dude for Real?" adjustment and the "Ugh, I Wish I Still Had a Concussion" adjustment. "
Don't forget the "hahaha, boy you guys really know how to manufacture political theater that backfires in your faces...I'm so walking out of here with your nuts in my fist" adjustment.
92 killed at American embassies under Reagan.
33 killed at American embassies under Bush.
GOP history didn't exist before Obama.
Hope she sees fit to step up and tell the truth.
We called them "birth control glasses" in the military.
Some Fox News drone will find something ugly to say about Secretary Clinton's appearance with the glasses. What are the odds the person making the comment is a svelte, trim, great-looking example of fitness? Not likely...
And, why is this such big news? CNN low standards rise again.
But, but I thought she was faking her injuries so she wouldn't have to tell how she and King Obama hopped a plane to Benghazi for one of their secret get aways and were spotted by Ambassador Stevens. They couldn't risk being exposed so they plotted to take him out themselves. They did it, covered it up and then lied to the American people.
See, anyone can make up crazy conspiracy theories.........
What difference does it make? Even without the special lenses her vision is still distorted by the liberal prism.
