Hillary Clinton Wearing Special Glasses Following Concussion

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 23: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifies before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Capitol Hill January 23, 2013 in Washington, DC. Lawmakers questioned Clinton about the security failures during the September 11 attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, that led to the death of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

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.
