Why is Hillary Clinton wearing glasses instead of her blue contact lenses?
Her eyes are brown when she wears her glasses.
Doesn't anybody think it's odd that a senior citizen wears colored lenses?
No. It makes them easier to see, ESPECIALLY for older folks.
Doesn't she realize ex-presidents seldom make passes at secretaries of state who wear glasses?
Those lenses are strange. They seem quite thick with a concave section in the middle, tinted. I wonder if it has anything to do with her recent concussion?
Vision problems are quite common after head injuries, even mild concussions.
I'm worried about Hillary. Some of those fucks questioning her are insulting and abusive.
Partly her health and partly her own lack of vanity. I think she's tried and doesn't five a shit anymore about looking perfect all the time.
[quote]Glasses are in...Andy Cohen is wearing them too
Then they're out.

She has always worn big-ass thick glasses.
A cardiologist interviewed on radio said based on the symptoms Hillary had mini stroke which TPTB wouldn't want reported.
I love them. I think she looks younger and hipper, and generally more dynamic with them on.
Besides, now she can do that little head drop and give withering looks over the top of them.

Roger Daltrey, Ringo Starr, Bono, Elton John and Jack Nicholson are a few seniors who wear colored lenses. I
Ozzy Osbourne, Yoko Ono and Johnny Depp are seniors in colored lenses..
It's not at all odd that a senior would wear colored contact lenses. As someone upthread said, they're much easier to see. Seniors often have vision problems that glasses can't correct.
Diane Keaton wears colored lenses a lot.

Seriously... She fell down. That's the only "symptom" we've ever heard. She fell down. The explanation given was that she passed out from being dehydrated after a stomach virus and that she had a concussion. Then we heard she was admitted to the hospital because doctors suspected she had a blood clot and she did have a blood clot.
What "symptoms" other than falling down did this cardiologist hear about?
A lotif celebrities are wearing tinted lenses at events where they have a lot of photos taken. It helps with the lights. I'm sure Hillary's under a few lights. And yes, it could be due to mild photophobia from a head injury.
I loved the green dress she wore yesterday.
r18, her fall was the result of a TMI. We were told what sounded plausible without them being accused of lying. If Hillary suffers another "episode" remember that cardiologist's observation.
What's a TMI?
It sounds like she had a vaso-vagal reaction which is a reaction to stress and dehydration among other things. Veins that are supposed to be constricted to maintain blood pressure suddenly relax, leading to a loss of blood from the brain, light headedness, and fainting. I've had some experience with these, unfortunately.
r21: Do you mean TIA (transient ischemic attack)? People call those mini-strokes. But there are a lot of other reasons why Hillary might have fainted.
R22, thanks for that. I've experienced near-fainting spells for about a year. I haven't actually fainted but I get very light-headed, to the point where I have to hang onto whatever is available in order to not fall over. This lasts about about 4-5 seconds. Within a minute I'm fine and do not have any lingering effects. This happens about 2-3 times a month.
I'm afraid one of these days it's going to happen while I'm crossing the street, driving or cycling. Though after reading up on vaso-vagal reaction on Wikipedia, it seems it happens due to sudden relaxation. Hopefully the mentioned activities will be active enough so an episode won't happen.
r24: Also look up orthostatic hypotension. I had that for a while. Turned out to be related to medication I was taking for blood pressure. Went away when I switched meds.
Well, the glasses look like she's pretty severely nearsighted, probably with some significant astigmatism.
Just like millions of other people.
I really liked listening to Hillary tell off that Senator. "What's the difference!!" She's a class act. I don't think she cares about vanity anymore.
I love them on her!
1/3 part of me thinks it may have to do with her alleged fall. I had a minor head trauma and have gotten floaters that still have not gone away.
2/3 of me thinks it's to garner sympathy.

You're an idiot.
R20, Hillary does not wear dresses. It was a green jacket with pants.
The only time she wears dresses is at special galas and balls, and her daughter's wedding.
From R31 link
"The thick glasses Hillary Clinton has been wearing in public since returning from a concussion and blood clot last month are the result of lingering effects of her health problems, a Clinton aide confirms.
"She'll be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion," said spokesman Philippe Reines. "With them on she sees just fine."
Question asked and answered. Thread should be closed but Dl repugs are like a dog with a bone about Hilary and Benghazi .
Hillary may have had a TIA - which is a mini-stroke.
The glasses would make sense in the aftermath of a TIA - mini stroke.
I had a serious concussion but my eye sight wasn't affected except for immediately after. I know adding the bloodclot complicated her situation, but I still sense we are not getting the full story.
I thought I saw her left eye maybe drooping a little bit behind the glasses which could be indicative of a TIA - mini stroke.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
