Transcript for Hillary Clinton Reassures Public on Her Health After Karl Rove Statements
Clinton is making news with her exclusive interview with ABC's Diane sawyer, the first before Clinton's new memoir, called "Hard choices" comes out next week. In this clip we're about to show you, Clinton talks about her health, after republican strategist Karl rove asked whether she may have suffered brain damage as a result of a fall back in 2012. How is your health? It's very good, thank you. How serious was it? It was, you know, it was I think a serious concussion. The clot had dislodged? Well, that was the scary point. You had trouble with vision. I had because of the force of the fall, I had some -- I had double-vision for a short period of time. And I had some dizziness. I felt fine. And I felt it was kind of silly that I was supposed to stay in bed. I ran into congressman Paul Ryan at the inauguration last year. And I had read he was this great athlete. And I said congressman, did you ever have a concussion? He said, yes. I had several. I think three in the last one was serious. But my mother was smart enough to make me stay in. What happens to athletes, soldiers, young people in car accidents, all the reasons why people get concussions, is they kind of shake it off. And I felt like, you know, I can get back up. I can go to work. And the doctor said, no. You're going to stay and rest because then you will have a complete recovery. Fast forward, I go home for Christmas. Go to New York for Christmas. And I want to go back to work. My doctor says, let's just do an mri to make sure that everything's healing as we think it is. So, here's what they say. They say, the good news is, the concussion is totally resolving like we told you it was going to be fine. The bad news is, you've developed a clot behind your right ear and you must immediately go to the hospital because we must immediately put you on blood thinners. No lingering effects of any kind? No lingering effects. You would release your medical records if you ran? I would do what others have done. Paul Ryan, three concussions. He would have been the vice president of the United States. We knew none of that. It's a fascinating interview. And don't miss Diane's exclusive interview with Hillary Clinton. Nothing off-limits, including what Hillary has to say about Monica lewinsky. It's a one-hour special airing Monday at 9:00 P.M. Eastern.
