Hillary Clinton faints, suffers concussion

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sustained a concussion after becoming dehydrated and fainting, a State Department official said.

Clinton had been suffering from a stomach virus at the time, according to a statement on Saturday from Philippe Reines, deputy assistant secretary of state.

She is being monitored by doctors and is recovering at home. She was never hospitalized, Reines said.

    The shooting has made everyone I know very sad.
    Freetown is not very far from us. I just spoke to a friend whose nieces and nephews were in schools on lock-down. He had just sent nasty messages to nearby gun-lobby offices.
    I agree with @the prophet there is need for much better treatment and observation for the mentally ill.

    Rest in peace, Mrs. Clinton. And that's what you get for hitting Bill in the face with a phone. All he did was cheat on you again. Sheesh!

    Here we have a failure for a president who wamts to put as head of national security a woman who blames a preplanned terrorist attack on a youtube video, while the departing secretary of state ignored calls for increased security and is now faking sick to avoid the embarassment of having to either tell the shameful trith or continue the coverup with more blaming the victims and lies. IMPEACH ALL OF THEM!!!!!
