Where’s the apology? Silence from the right on Hillary’s illness

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was discharged from the hospital Wednesday evening and is expected to make a full recovery. So far the right has been relatively silent after hurling a barrage of criticism at the secretary of state. Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton gave one of the most blatant accusations in an interview before Christmas. “When you don’t want to go to a meeting or a conference or an event you have a ‘diplomatic illness,’” he said. “And this is a diplomatic illness to beat the band.”

When asked Tuesday if he was willing to amend those remarks in light of recent news, Bolton refused.

Others, including conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer, took a more sarcastic angle than Bolton, calling her condition a “Benghazi allergy” and joking that she had “the first reported case and it was very severe.”

Laura Ingraham was so sarcastic about Clinton that she went from saying she had “great respect” for her to joking about her “immaculate concussion” in the same sentence.

What did you think of these accusations?
