According to Blood Feud by bestselling author and former New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Edward Klein, Hillary Clinton’s health problems disqualify her from becoming president. Her health problems are much more severe than she has publicly revealed—even life threatening!
Below are two excerpts from Klein’s book, Blood Feud:
The true story of what happened to Hillary, which is being recounted in these pages for the first time, was radically different from Reines’s version.
To begin with, Hillary fainted while she was working in her seventh-floor office at the State Department, not at home, as Reines told the media. She was treated at the State Department’s infirmary and then, at her own insistence, taken to Whitehaven to recover. However, as soon as Bill appeared on the scene and was able to assess Hillary’s condition for himself, he ordered that she be immediately flown to New York–Presbyterian Hospital in the Fort Washington section of Manhattan. When Reines subsequently released a statement confirming that Hillary was being treated at the hospital over the New Year’s holiday, it naturally intensified speculation about the seriousness of her medical condition.
While she was at the hospital, doctors diagnosed Hillary with several problems.
She had a right transverse venous thrombosis, or a blood clot between her brain and skull. She had developed the clot in one of the veins that drains blood from the brain to the heart. The doctors explained that blood stagnates when you spend a lot of time on airplanes, and Hillary had clocked countless hours flying around the world.
To make matters worse, it turned out that Hillary had an intrinsic tendency to form clots and faint. In addition to the fainting spell she suffered in Buffalo a few years before, she had fainted boarding her plane in Yemen, fallen and fractured her elbow in 2009, and suffered other unspecified fainting episodes. Several years earlier, she had developed a clot in her leg and was put on anticoagulant therapy by her doctor. However, she had foolishly stopped taking her anticoagulant medicine, which might have explained the most recent thrombotic event.
“The unique thing about clotting in the brain is that it could have transformed into a stroke,” said a cardiac specialist with knowledge of Hillary’s condition.
According to a source close to Hillary, a thorough medical examination revealed that Hillary’s tendency to form clots was the least of her problems. She also suffered from a thyroid condition, which was common among women of her age, and her fainting spells indicated there was an underlying heart problem as well. A cardiac stress test indicated that her heart rhythm and heart valves were not normal. Put into layman’s language, her heart valves were not pumping in a steady way.
When the author attempted to contact the Clintons’ cardiologist, Dr. Allan Schwartz, he refused to comment, which made it impossible to determine the exact nature of Hillary’s medical status or its long-term significance. However, sources who discussed Hillary’s medical condition with her were told that Hillary’s doctors considered performing valve-replacement surgery. They ultimately decided against it. Still, before they released Hillary from the hospital, they warned Bill Clinton: “She has to be carefully monitored for the rest of her life.”
Blood Feud recounts the events of the Clintons versus the Obamas. Given the revelations in Blood Feud, it appears that the author favors the Obama side of the feud.
Aside from Hillary’s health, Blood Feud answers a lot of other questions about the Clintons and the Obamas—it’s not just Bill and Hillary, but Barack and Michelle also lead largely separate lives and how Michelle’s best friend controls the White House. Blood Feud is a stunning exposé of the animosity and competition between America’s two most powerful political couples. It is filled with a wealth of insider information involving Oprah Winfrey and Valeria Jarrett who shot her down as a force during the election. Oprah did not like how Michelle always was one up on Barack.
This book is an entertaining look into the powers surrounding the White House, the Obamas and the Clintons.
