September 11, 2016

Two Hillary Clinton aides denied it to Fox News, but as the Drudge Report first pointed out, Hillary clinton appears to have had the benefit of an earpiece last night during the presidential forum on the Aircraft Carrier Intrepid in New York Harbor. It was not immediately clear if the device was so she could be assisted with her responses, or if hearing can be added the the list of the former Secretary of State's health problems.

Hearing loss is a known side effect of a stroke or seizure. Clinton, 68, has mocked any concern about her health, admits to having suffered a blood clot to her rain in 2012.

Stroke is when poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. They result in part of the brain not functioning properly. Signs and symptoms of a stroke may include an inability to move or feel on one side of the body, problems understanding or speaking, feeling like the world is spinning, or loss of vision to one side among others.

Signs and symptoms often appear soon after the stroke has occurred. If symptoms last less than one or two hours it is known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA).

Hemorrhagic strokes may also be associated with a severe headache. The symptoms of a stroke can be permanent.[1] Long term complications may include pneumonia or loss of bladder control.

The story was also a trending topic on Twitter, as social media users buzzed about they mysterious device in her ear.

"Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill says Hillary Clinton was not wearing an earpiece last night," ABC reporter Liz Kreutz informed her followers on Twitter after Clinton held a press conference on the airport tarmac in New York.
