Andrew Sullivan gets it wrong again: Hillary Clinton’s blood clot may not have been caused by a concussion

As Twitchy noted last night, Trig Truther Andrew Sullivan joined the bandwagon of liberals sanctimoniously lecturing conservatives about Hillary Clinton’s blood clot.

Sullivan, who said yesterday he is still waiting for Sarah Palin’s medical records, apparently considers himself an expert in neurology as well as obstetrics. He stated that it is “perverse” to suggest that someone could be admitted to a hospital for a blood clot without an earlier concussion.

But Aaron Dumont, director of cerebrovascular surgery at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, isn’t on board with the Sully theory of blood clots. Dr. Dumont told the Washington Post there is probably no link between Clinton’s blood clot and the fainting spell that caused her concussion.

Head trauma can cause blood in a venous sinus to clot, but it almost always has to be severe enough to cause a skull fracture, said Aaron S. Dumont, director of cerebrovascular surgery at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia.

“It’s probably a coincidence,” he said of Clinton’s fainting spell and the clot.

We’d ask Sullivan for comment, but he’s probably still very busy hunting down proof that Sarah Palin’s son Trig isn’t hers.

    This is the first and last time that I show interest in Sullivan.

    I believe zero that comes out of this administration. Time has shown that everything that is said by them is all spin to either make themselves look good or cover something up.

      And you get four more years to enjoy it. And if you reran McCain/Obama OR Romney/Obama you’d get the same result. Over and over. So sadly your opinion isn’t shared by most.

        Actually his opinion is shared by most. Obama just got you and more stupid people to vote for free stuff and illegal cash. The good times are about to end because most of us now working are going on welfare this year to crash the system.

        Once the country is in chaos, we’ll be able to hunt the weak and stupid for food. They’ll be really easy to track and won’t even require much bait to get them to gather in large herds.

          TP, before we join the parasites to “crash the system,” let’s give the folks in charge a wake-up call. One day – all together – the gainfully employed should do NOTHING. Just stay home that day and don’t do anything; don’t buy anything, don’t go anywhere, don’t add a single penny to the economy or – more importantly – the government coffers.

          The folks in charge need to see what America looks like without the gainfully employed.

            will the rest of us be able to tell the difference?

    Obamuh is the cause of the clot bcuz he clogs up everything. That said, I wish SOS Clinton a speedy recovery. I haven’t heard if Bubba has been home taking care of her in which case maybe she prefers the hospital.

    Whatever is going on, its really strange. They’re running this Sec of State health crisis like they did Benghazi, and look what came out of that…

  • TocksNedlog

    I thought the clot caused the fainting spell.
    Now they’re claiming that the concussion — which resulted from the fainting spell — caused the clot?
    Are they absolutely, positively sure that all of this wasn’t caused by an adverse reaction to viewing a anti-Muslim video?

    I’m curious, who did Britain receive in exchange for Andrew Sullivan?

    Why do guys like Andrew Sullivan and David Brock play this game where – for a long time – they present themselves as conservatives, and then – at some point, to the surprise of no one – they announce that they’ve been fibbing all along? That game – in my book – is almost as dishonest and offensive as the game some members of the 2% play, wherein – to pass as a member of the 98% – they marry a member of the 98%, and then later emerge from the closet to announce that they’ve been living a lie.
