Hillary Clinton Got The Perfect Gift On Her First Day Back To The State Department After Her Concussion

Hillary Clinton returned to work at the State Department today after a month-long absence caused by a string of injuries that ultimately left her in the hospital with a blood clot near her brain. Clinton first battled a stomach virus, which caused her to fall and suffer a concussion.

Noting that Washington gamesmanship is often a “contact sport,” her co-workers presented her with a regulation football helmet as a welcome-back gift.

Clinton was also given a football jersey with the No. 112 on it, symbolizing the number of countries she’s visited as Secretary of State.
