Bill Clinton Has Been Hiding This Illness For Years

Posted on

Bill Clinton just gave an amazing speech at the DNC about his wife Hillary, the Democrat nominee in this year’s presidential election. He has been known for many things including eleven years as Arkansas’ governor, eight years as President of the United States (he left office with the highest end-of-office approval rating of any U.S. President since World War II), and a cheating scandal that rocked the nation, and could have destroyed his marriage.

There’s another thing about the former president that many have no idea about; he has some serious health issues. Though health is a personal thing, it is often not hard to recognize if someone is under the weather. Bill has led an active life despite all of his health issues.

In 2004 he underwent a quadruple bypass surgery on his heart, and in 2005 he underwent surgery for a collapsed lung. Five years later in 2010, he was hospitalized again. This time to receive two coronary stents in his heart.

Even with all of these issues, Bill still had time to be the founder of such organizations like the William J. Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative. In 2009, Clinton was named the United Nations Special Envoy to Haiti and In 2011, President Michel Martelly of Haiti awarded Clinton with the National Order of Honour and Merit to the rank of Grand Cross “for his various initiatives in Haiti and especially his high contribution to the reconstruction of the country after the earthquake of January 12, 2010.”
