Hillary Clinton Wearing Special Glasses Following Concussion

Though Hillary Clinton’s glasses may have helped her communicate a range of subtle emotions during her Congressional testimony on Wednesday, they also served another, arguably more important purpose: As the Daily News noticed earlier tonight, Clinton’s spectacles appear to be outfitted with a Fresnel prism, which is used to treat double vision.

Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines has confirmed to Daily Intelligencer that Clinton will “be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion.”

With them on she sees just fine,” Reines assured us. “In fact, she got a kick out of your seven expressions and captions when she saw them crystal clear.”

Presumably, Clinton read the post while making the “Some People Have Too Much Time on Their Hands” Adjustment.
