In December 2013, Paul Gosar tweeted, “Best week in a long time… To get so lucky this year! #HillaryClinton gets a concussion and almost dies.” The tweet was predicated on a 2007 article published in the Huffington Post about Clinton’s health, in which she had “missed three votes in the Senate Armed Services Committee (on defense legislation) because of what was termed a ‘severe concussion.’ ”
In late 2015, and again in June 2016, the actor (“Blue Bloods” and “Jarhead”) made remarks on his Twitter account related to Clinton’s concussion (“Stay strong @HillaryClinton, 2114. We all love you” and “I pray for @HillaryClinton, she’s the best candidate for President”).
Now, Gosar is apologizing on “Fox & Friends” for his 2015 tweet: “Well, I think I might have jumped the gun with the 2007 to 2016 statement about the new series she was working on at the time,” he said, referring to his tweet with the following photo: “Please do not believe or take seriously the comments made last week on Twitter about Hillary Clinton.”
“Fox & Friends” hosts Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt encouraged the actor, who added, “I would just like to reiterate to everybody, I was, you know, half joking about the concussion.” He added, “And again, I would just like to apologize to anybody who thought that that was any sort of like confirmation that Hillary was not going to run or wasn’t going to have health issues or anything.”
