Hillary Clinton May Have Just Been Feeling ‘Allergic’ in Dramatic White House Photo


This photograph of Barack Obama’s national security team during the Osama bin Laden raid, taken by official White House photographer Pete Souza, moved us all. What were they thinking? What were they seeing? Look at those faces! Especially…Hillary Clinton. It’s as if she’d seen a ghost. Or felt really, really allergic. According to the Washington Post, Clinton said she has “no idea” what exactly she and the team were viewing at the moment of the photo. Further, that hand-to-face gesture might not even mean anything! Or might mean something incredibly…mundane.

“I am somewhat sheepishly concerned that it was my preventing one of my early spring allergic coughs,” she said. “So, it may have no great meaning whatsoever.”

Sheesh. Does everything have to be ruined by facts?
