Oh what an awful thing to tweet. He should be ashamed

  1. She got geographic tongue. Geographic tongue occurs when parts of the tongue are missing layers of small bumps called papillae. They normally cover the entire upper layer of your tongue. Nobody knows why this happens but one might think it comes from sticking foot in mouth one too many times.

    1. Geographic tongue would appear irregular and bright pinkish in color. That spot is circular and dark. It looks like a scar that's left over from minor surgery for a growth. I happened to have noted it much earlier in the day while posting some comments over at Althouse's blog, but no one there offered an answer for it. In the meantime, it's been spotted by lots of people and has gone viral. It's certainly an usual and uncomfortable place to have a growth that needs to be removed, but for someone of her advanced age it's just the luck of the draw. Serious? Who knows? Probably not, especially if caught in time by her dentist (most likely) or her physician. On the other hand, the medicine she is being prescribed for her hypothyroid condition is just crazy, so perhaps her doctor is a quack.

    2. Barfly reveals herself. Not a Trump critic, but a Hillary apologist. Oh, look. I think one of Trump's shoelaces might be coming untied.

  2. Yes, that could be considered nasty. Funny as Hell, though.

    1. Oh Sam, you should not laugh. That just encourages such awfulness.

    1. Correction: Mike Cernovich most likely did not take that picture. He couldn't have gotten that close to the Geezer. He simply posted it. I saw basically the same picture posted with this article: The Agony of Hillary.

  4. Getting old is hell! Some age better than others and this should be taken into account when running for president. My wife thinks Hillary should have gone grey instead of the blond dye job so her face would match up better. But Hillary is fat as a tub and that is very unhealthy. It is gut fat too.

  5. Not geographic tongue. Looks like a healing lesion. Could be herpetic, but also could be a spot of cancer that was treated with a laser. This raises questions about he cough. It is possible that if she has had lesions treated on her tongue, there could have been lesions treated on her tonsils or other parts of her pharynx. The irritation of these areas from laser treatments, even if only for sleep apnea, could be enough to cause a cough. However, if she had treatment for sleep apnea, I suspect that she would have been forthcoming about it, and many people would have felt common cause with her about it. I suspect otherwise. We now know that the most common kind of pharyngeal cancers associated with HPV exhibit a lower degree of malignity and lower rates of metastasis than that otherwise encountered. It may be that she has been undergoing repeated checks for this and having laser treatments for lesions that have been detected, presumably early.
    One note of caution about this kind of approach: using less aggressive techniques in the service of maintaining a political career can backfire. Hubert Humphrey had bladder cancer before the 1968race for the presidency. He opted for cystoscopic monitoring and external beam radiation rather than radiation followed by radical cystoprostatectomy, which would have been the state of the art at the Mayo clinic at the time. He went on to die of metastatic bladder cancer several years later.
    I suspect that she has HPV associated cancer, not herpes.

  6. OK, my wife (nurse of almost 50 years' experience, including 5 in oncology) thinks she has a tumor, probably of the brain, so that makes sense.
