Are fashion trend-setters Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and John McCain (R-AZ) leading by example? Each one has been sporting a single, orthopedic “walking boot” for some time now.
First, on October 15 this year, Hillary Clinton injured her right foot during her United Kingdom book tour. After canceling or rescheduling interviews with British journalists, one Clinton spokesman excused her absence by saying she had twisted her ankle.
But when Mrs. Clinton appeared on BBC’s “Graham Norton Show” with her right foot in a foot brace, she joked that she had fallen and broken a toe after catching a high heel on some steps. Describing her accident, she said, “I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder, and my heel caught, and I fell backward. I tried to get up and it really hurt. ‘I’ve broken my toe.'”
This online health source confirms that this treatment befits a broken toe:
“The doctor may prescribe a walking boot. This will allow you to bear weight on your injured foot while protecting the toe so it can heal.”
The US National Library of Medicine chimes in with, “Each toe is made up of 2 or 3 small bones. These bones are small and fragile. They can break after you stub your toe or drop something heavy on it.”
So far, Hillary’s broken toe story bears up – on the surface. But just how long does it take a broken toe to heal? After all, Mrs. Clinton appeared in her walking boot in mid-October, two and a half months ago.
MedicineNet says it takes about six weeks for a broken toe to heal.
Yet, as of December 14, the failed 2016 presidential candidate was still wearing the walking boot in Vancouver, Canada during another global promotional book tour:
Coincidentally, CNN announced on November 6, 2017, that Sen. John McCain had been treated for an injured Achilles tendon, and “plans to wear a boot.” Does it seem odd that he would announce such detail in advance? The story also wove in an extra dose of sympathy by informing us that Sen. McCain’s brain cancer is “very, very serious.”
Happily, Sen. McCain’s medical conditions are not keeping him out of the public eye. The Washington Examiner published side-by-side photos of Sen. John McCain wearing his walking boot on different legs. Yes, really:
The Hill published McCain’s reasoning in his November 23 tweet:
“My left leg was doing extra work to compensate for the boot, so I’m giving it a break. I still hate wearing this boot, but it won’t slow us down from frying 7 turkeys today!”
Riiiight. Compensate away, sir, but you appear to be a big, fat turkey of a fibber. Do you really think anyone is that stupid, to believe such a ridiculous story?
Or perhaps these boots have a purpose beyond mere fashion? A theory is going around Conspiracy Street that Hillary Clinton and John McCain (and other high-ranking government officials) have already been indicted, arrested, and are now forced, by court order, to wear GPS ankle bracelets that track their movements, prevents them from traveling in restricted areas, and reports when they contact other indicted individuals – for example, Chelsea Clinton?
After all, various sources, including the Hal Turner radio show, are reporting that “4,289 sealed indictments have appeared just between October 30 and November 22, 2017. The normal limit is not more than 1000 sealed indictments for the entire year.”
In case you didn’t know, a sealed indictment is “an indictment kept from the public for a period of time until it is released. An indictment is a felony accusation issued by a grand jury against a suspect in a crime.”
More than four thousand defendants represent a significant amount of swamp drainage, regardless of the specific charges.
Apparently, Mrs. Clinton just can’t get a break these days – except, of course, for one of her toes. Allegedly.
