Hilary Clinton's Trauma is Unnecessary Drama

Republican strategist Karl Rove suggested that Hilary Clinton suffers from brain damage.

Can't a lady get a break?
Rove referred to Clinton's 2012 fall which caused a concussion which caused a blood clot saying that if she runs for office we need to know what really happened. He said, “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.”
Glasses for brain injury? Yes, her reps did confirm that she sported some corrective lenses for a while as she continued to recover from the potentially life-threatening clot, but she was not in the hospital for thirty days. It was actually three. Rove needs to do a recount.
This is a pretty low blow and also makes no sense. Clinton is clearly a fully functioning and capable woman.
But bizarrely, Rove, who, on an unrelated note, I feel strongly resembles Mr. Potato Head, is not the only person to speculate conspiracy involving Clinton's 2012 injury because it delayed her testifying on Benghazi. Buzzfeed collected a list of 8 people who thought it was fake while others speculated that she was injured in a plane crash on a secret mission in Iran and then Glen Reynolds of USA Today offered that she fell over drunk.
Sigh. All of this is giving me a traumatic brain ache.
