Last we saw Hillary, she looked ghastly. On purpose. She spoke at the Children’s Defense Fund gala wearing no make and without any hairstyling, appearing to have aged considerably since the election.

Slate praised the former First Lady and Secretary of State for NOT wearing make-up at the event:
Freed from the expectation of appealing to men who are threatened by women in positions of power, Clinton looks like the 69-year-old woman that she is. Why should Clinton care about “impressing the public visually”? After suffering the biggest disappointment of her life—and maybe the biggest national disappointment of the century—Clinton is focused on public service, not her hairdo.
Did you catch that? Hillary Clinton looking like an unkempt, bedraggled tired bowl of crusty oatmeal is a good thing, in fact a noble thing, because it shows her true desire to serve. The Daily Mail concluded Hillary’s dramatic change in appearance reflects a radical change in her persona: No longer “friendly and approachable mother-figure” Hillary now portrays “a sterner-minded woman.”
Translation: Hillary Clinton was a fraud and a phony throughout the campaign, using make-up and hair-do and whatever meds she was on to paper over her true self. She no longer has to woo the American public so this is true Hillary, petulant to the last, flaunting polite grooming customs, either punishing viewers or seeking sympathy with her unvarnished appearance.
Yet, is something more to her shocking appearance? Perhaps campaign exhaustion her medical conditions are catching up to her: A history of falls, evidence of seizures, brain injury, blood clots, loss of balance, memory lapse, crossed eyes, and chronic coughing reveal symptoms of a very sick woman possibly suffering from Parkinson’s disease.
On election eve, Dr. Ted Noel theorized that Hillary had a deep brain stimulator implanted to help treat her advancing Parkinson’s condition. He bases his conclusion on Hillary Clinton’s own statements, chronology of health events and a leaked MRI:
Given her health concerns, and her embarrassing defeat and the exhaustion from campaigning, Hillary can best serve herself by keeping a very low profile so that Americans can remember her during better days.
