Acclaimed physician Dr. Drew Pinsky believes Hillary Clinton is receiving insufficient care and may be vulnerable to recurring pulmonary embolisms, or blood clots.
“Why is somebody who’s running for the President of the United States getting such shoddy care?” Drew stressed on KABC’s Midday Live. “My problem is the quality of the overall care she is getting,” he added.
Dr. Drew was reacting to a recent report by Breitbart News that revealed security officials and medical professionals speculate Clinton could be suffering from long-term health issues stemming from a concussion and blood clot, a claim that the Clinton campaign denied – referencing Clinton’s health statement produced by her physician and published on her campaign website.
“The neurologist you spoke to said you would put somebody on something like Coumadin to dissolve the clot in the skull… you would put somebody on a blood thinner for six months or so after that,” Dr. Drew said, reacting to the Breitbart News report. “But in the doctor’s comment, or one of the comments, I saw they said they elected to keep her on anticoagulants, which is kind of bizarre.” Pinsky went on to say:
But, when you read she had a history of previous deep venous thrombosis in 1998 and 2009 – she’s had twice a clot in her leg – these are serious clots that lead to something called pulmonary embolism, which can also cause sudden death. So, she has an underlying recurrent blood clot in her leg, a clot in her transverse sinus…why is she clotting? And then why would you leave her on the oldest and sort of most treacherous anticoagulant?
If not just for her liberal socialist politics, Hillary Clinton appears simply unhealthy enough to run for President, much less hold office. Several Presidents have suffered health disabilities during their terms, most famously FDR, who suffered from polio. The difference here is that Clinton's malady is being shoddily treated and puts the country at risk of losing a sitting President should she be elected to office.
