Last month, Karl Rove said that Hillary Clinton has brain damage. Remarking on a fall Clinton experienced in her home in December 2012, Rove said, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”
Tuesday on Sean Hannity’s show, Rove bashed Clinton to the Fox News host for pushing back on his baseless medical speculation. Because the nerve of that woman, you know? (Oh, I should mention that Karl Rove is not Hillary Clinton’s doctor, or a doctor at all. That feels important to mention here.)
“She has a problem with the fact that I said that she had a serious health incident and that I thought that would be a bigger part of her personal calculation than most people anticipate. [...] She is antagonistic toward the press, and has a very thin skin. She will abide no criticism. It’s one of the least attractive things we see in Hillary Clinton,” he continued.
“She doesn’t like being confronted — by anybody. And that’s not what a presidential candidate is going to be able to get away with in the primaries or a presidential election.”
Rove is right. Hillary Clinton is the only politician in the history of politicians who does not respond well to criticism from the press. (Particularly when that criticism is a garbage medical diagnosis and has nothing to do with policy.)
Here are some videos of politicians responding really well after being confronted by the press. Hopefully she will learn something about proper media etiquette.

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
