Karl Rove doubles down on Hillary Clinton brain damage attack

Republican Strategist Karl Rove is doubling down on his reported comments, suggesting Hillary Clinton may have suffered lasting brain damage after a fall two years ago.

Karl Rove stands by his Hillary Clinton comments, says Bill Clinton backs him up

"Her husband told us something the other day we didn’t know: It took her six months to get back," Rove said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Republicans say her health is a legitimate concern.

"Health and age is fair game." Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says, "It's fair game for Ronald Reagan. It's fair game for John McCain."

Rove's attack on Hillary Clinton was clumsy, but also shrewd

    -I...am a man...And you must take stock in what I say, Granny4life (whatever that could indeed mean), so, here's what I have to say: Hillary has come along way from under Bill as a leader, yet the fact remains she would have that button to push and hopefully she wouldn't think it was the toliet bidet button. Nevertheless, if she runs for President(e) of the Republic of the United States of America, then we'll know for sure she is at least capable of distinguishing her sovereign continent from gender nominal washrooms. Let's give her a whirl and point her in the right direction, shall we. ?

    We all know Karl is an idiot and Priebus is one step behind so none of this is news and who cares what they think, men are threatened by Hillary so I don't take too much stock in what they have to say.
