Hillary Clinton Given Helmet Upon Return to State Department
A gift of a helmet was presented to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton after she returned to work following a month-long absence for health-related issues.
One stomach virus, one concussion & one blood clot later, HRC is back at the helm … with a football helmet to protect herself from future falls:
A crowd of approximately 75 State Department officials greeted Clinton with a standing ovation as she walked into her first senior staff meeting since early December.
Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Nides, noting that life in D.C. is often a “contact sport, sometimes even in your own home” then presented Clinton with a gift.
The regulation white Riddell football helmet emblazoned with the State Department seal will come in handy the next time Clinton feels a yet dizzy.
She was moreover given a blue football jersey with “Clinton” & the number 112 – the record-breaking number of countries she has visited as U.S. Secretary of State.
Aides said Clinton was delighted with the gifts yet did not try either of them on & the meeting turned to matters of national security & diplomacy.
We all know from Texts From Hillary that she doesn’t mess around.
