Do Americans need a president who is ‘often confused?’
by Sam Rolley
Her campaign is going to have to double down on its constant attempts to make Hillary Clinton seem less like a political dinosaur after this email exchange from her confidante Huma Abedin surfaced this week.
Abedin’s email, sent to Clinton aide and frequent companion Monica Hanley during the former first lady’s time at the State Department, expressed the importance of going over key details for Clinton repeatedly because she’s “often confused.”
Here’s part of the email exchange:
Abedin: Have you been going over her calls with her? So she knows singh is at 8? [India Prime Minister Manmohan Singh]
Hanley: She was in bed for a nap by the time I heard that she had an 8am call. Will go over with her
Abedin: Very imp to do that. She’s often confused.
The date on the emails indicate that Clinton’s confusion could have had something to do with a concussion she suffered in December 2012, just before her infamous “what difference does it make” testimony on Benghazi before a House committee.
Clinton’s concussion and the amount of time it took her to recover led some pundits to question whether she was still mentally fit enough to continue her diplomatic duties.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement that the Abedin emails prove that Clinton was desperately trying to cover up her incompetency when she made the decision to use a private email server while at the State Department.
“Huma Abedin’s description of Hillary Clinton as ‘easily confused’ tells you all you need to know why it took a federal lawsuit to get these government emails from Clinton’s illegal email server,” he said. “These emails also show that Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s decision to use the Clinton email server to conduct government business was dangerous and risky.”
