Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has had a busy Friday.

She took jabs at fellow candidate former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), said the U.S. should end its embargo with Cuba, and now has released medical evaluations declaring she is “fit to serve as President of the United States.”

In a letter, Dr. Lisa Bardack detailed the former secretary of state’s medical history, which includes a deep vein thrombosis in 1998 and 2009, seasonal allergies, and a concussion in 2012. Bardack has been Clinton’s physician since 2001.

“Mrs. Clinton is a healthy female with hypothyroidism and seasonal allergies, on long-term anticoagulation. She participates in a healthy lifestyle and has had a full medical evaluation, which reveals no evidence of additional medical issues or cardiovascular disease. Her cancer screening evaluations are all negative. She is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States,” Bardack wrote.

Clinton’s current medications, according to the letter, include Armour Thyroid, antihistamines, Vitamin B-12 and Coumadin, an anticoagulant. Her latest physical exam was March 21, it said.

Clinton is 67.

  2. I wonder why this was dumped in the Friday afternoon memory hole.

  3. Or as the New York Times is reporting it: “Death certificate shows Hillary Clinton died of an overdose at age 57.”
