Democratic strategist James Carville blasted critics who questioned whether Hillary Clinton was legitimately ill, saying Friday, “I have no idea what it is about the secretary of state that drives them to this kind of inhumane idiotic behaving state.”
Appearing on CNN, Carville told host Wolf Blitzer he simply didn’t “understand” the critics: “What kind of human being is going to think like that with everything going on with concussions, head injuries?”
He said those who questioned the illness were “duly noted” in “Clinton-land.” Most people close to the family, Carville added, “were very, very concerned about the Secretary of State.” Noting that Clinton did testify about Benghazi, which was many critics’ primary concern, Carville said the criticism “doesn’t even make any sense.”
“It’s just a cheap sound bite if you ask me,” Carville stated.
Clinton was hospitalized for a blood clot following a concussion last month. The illness began with a fall she sustained after a stomach virus zapped her strength. She was released from a New York City hospital earlier this week.
