“On Tuesday evening, President Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical Center to receive treatment for a non-Covid-related infection,” Clinton’s spokesman, Angel Urena, said in a statement on Thursday evening. “He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care.”
The former president, 75, was in Southern California to attend private events related to the Clinton Foundation, the Los Angeles Times reported. He was admitted to the hospital after feeling fatigued following a gathering with some friends in Orange County, the report said.
A source close to the situation told Fox News: “It was diagnosed as a urological infection which morphed into a broader infection. As you can see in his statement from his doctors, the prognosis is good and they hope to have him home soon. He’s up and about, joking and charming the hospital staff.”
Just around midnight Friday, California time, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin were seen leaving the hospital and departing in a motorcade that was accompanied by local law enforcement vehicles. A Fox News reporter at the scene said Mrs. Clinton appeared also to be in good spirits, chatting with others as she exited the hospital. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON OUR TOP STORY.

Hannity rips ‘Shadow President’ Klain for dismissing inflation concerns
In his monologue Thursday, Sean Hannity identified White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain as the “puppeteer” behind the actions of the “cognitively impaired” 78-year-old President Joe Biden, calling out the Delaware Democrat’s longtime confidant for dismissing the American people’s concerns about rising inflation.
Klain, who served as Biden’s vice presidential chief of staff as well as President Obama’s Ebola czar, retweeted a Harvard professor who diagnosed the current inflation spike as a “high-class problem”.
On “Hannity,” the host said Klain’s seeming ignorance of the economic plight of working-class Americans under Biden was not becoming of a leader.
“If you are middle-class or low income in America, you are in trouble, thanks to Joe Biden – He’s the one that gave up the energy independence he inherited,” Hannity said.
“Shadow President and master puppeteer – so kind, so thoughtful and loving – Ron Klain … believes we smelly Walmart shoppers of America, that cling to God, guns, Bibles, and religion don’t need to worry about inflation,” he said. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.
