Karl Rove: Hillary Clinton's Health "Will Be An Issue In 2016 Whether She Likes It Or Not"


KARL ROVE: I didn't say she had brain damage. She had a serious health episode, and my point was, I think it was from the 7th of December in 2012 through the 7th of January in 2013, she underwent -- first, she had apparently a serious virus, they announced then on the 15th of December that she at some period in the past week fallen. They didn't say when, they didn't say where. She was recovering at home.

On the 30th of December it turns out she had a blood clot. They won't say where. The next day they say it is behind her skull and her brain, behind her right ear. She's in the hospital for four days. She goes home, is back in the office on the 7th and testifies on the 25th wearing special glasses that allow her to deal with the double vision that this episode cause. hillary clinton wanted to run for president but she wouldn't be human if this didn't enter in as a consideration.

My point was, is that Hillary Clinton wants to run for president but she would not be human if this didn't enter in as a consideration. And my other point is this will be an issue in the 2016 race whether she likes it or not. Every presidential candidate is asked for all of their health records by The New York Times. They turn them over to a battery of doctors and they examine them in detail. And my point was everybody says she's going to run and she probably is. But I would bet that it's a more complicated calculation than we might think because, look, she’ll be 69 by the time the 2016 elections. She'll be 77 if she serves two terms. And this ends up being an issue.
