Tucker Carlson had a heart-breaking story on his Fox News show Thursday, October 14. Here’s Carlson’s report:
With Tucker Carlson setting the back story for us, here is where the story of the tale of two hospital visits begin.
In the first tale, the Lynn Savage story, the visitor is arrested for refusing to leave the side of her daughter who has brain surgery and is unable to speak or communicate.
In the second tale, the other visitor is a former first lady, former Secretary of State and former presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, who visited her husband after visiting hours.
Both of the stories patients are in ICU. The first patient is in ICU for brain surgery due to ongoing medical complications she suffered from a stroke. The second patient is in ICU for safety reasons not due to a serious medical condition.
The visitor in our first tale has no political elite ties and spent 24 hours in jail for refusing to leave her daughter’s side. She’s not connected to the Clinton Foundation or a friend of PINO Biden that could just pick up the phone a call when the hospital isn’t meeting a friend’s expectations.
The visitor in our second tale epitomizes the American political elite class and enjoyed full access throughout the night leading up until today Friday, October 15 to come and go without a nurse calling for her arrest.
Here are the two tales. Is this the two class America we want? What say you…
Florida mom jailed after refusing to leave daughter’s side at hospital
New York Post | by Jackie Salo | October 13, 2021
A fiercely devoted Florida mom was thrown in jail because she refused to leave her daughter’s bedside in the hospital — and she’s “not sorry that I made them take me out of there in handcuffs.”
Lynn Savage, 70, was taken into custody on trespassing charges after she wouldn’t comply with visiting hours while her daughter, Amber, was recovering from brain surgery at UF Health North in Jacksonville, news station WKRC reported.
“I could not in good conscience and good heart leave her bedside not knowing how she was going to make it through the night voluntarily,” Savage told the outlet.
Savage said she had been at the hospital that day since 6:30 a.m. acting as an interpreter for her daughter, who is non-verbal and paralyzed on her left side from a stroke.
At one point, a doctor asked Savage to come into her daughter’s room in the intensive care unit to help calm her down after her operation.
“As soon as I approached the bedside, she was fine,” Savage told the outlet.
But when visiting hours ended at 7 p.m., a nurse told Savage that she had to leave.
“I said, ‘I’m not going to leave. I want to stay here with my daughter. Can you call the doctor because the doctor is the one that wanted me here with her?’” she said.
“And [the nurse] said no, that they couldn’t do that. That COVID rules said that visiting hours were over at 7 and I had to leave.”
Security officers then came to the room and asked her to go.
“They were also very polite. They kept trying to get me to leave and I said, ‘I’m not leaving,’” Savage told the outlet.
After several hours of not giving in to officers’ pleas, Savage was taken to jail, where she spent roughly a day.
“It was just terrifying, but I would rather be there than know that I had walked away from my daughter,” Savage said.
“I stand by my actions 100%. I am not sorry that I made them take me out of there in handcuffs,” she added.
The hospital said in a statement that it was following protocol to ensure patients’ safety.
“Like health care organizations throughout the country, we have put policies in place to protect everyone from the COVID-19 virus, including patients, visitors and staff,” the statement to Action News Jax said.
“Information about visitation limitations are placed in areas visible to those entering our facilities,” it added.
Former President Bill Clinton hospitalized for infection but ‘on the mend’
CNN | by Jamie Gangel | October 15, 2021
(CNN)Former President Bill Clinton was admitted to the University of California Irvine Medical Center’s intensive care unit for a urinary tract infection that spread to his bloodstream, his doctors told CNN on Thursday.
“He was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring,” according to a joint statement Thursday evening from Dr. Alpesh Amin, chair of medicine at UC Irvine Medical Center, and Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s personal primary physician. They said that Clinton was in the ICU for privacy and safety, not because he needs intensive care.
Clinton is in good spirits, talking to family and staff, and has been up and walking, according to both his doctors and his staff.
“After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well,” the doctors said. “We hope to have him go home soon.”
Clinton, who was in California for a private event for his foundation, had been feeling fatigued on Tuesday and was admitted to the hospital after testing, according to his office. Hillary Clinton went to the event on Thursday evening to “represent both of them” and then went to the hospital to be with the former President, a Clinton spokesman told CNN.
The former President’s doctors said urologic infections are very common in older people, and they are easily treated, although they can quickly spread to the bloodstream. Clinton will be given intravenous antibiotics until Friday, when he will likely be switched to oral antibiotics. His vital measurements are all stable, the doctors said.
Clinton spokesman Angel Urena said Thursday that the former President is “on the mend” and “in good spirits.”
“On Tuesday evening, President Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical Center to receive treatment for a non-Covid-related infection. He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care,” Urena said.
This story has been updated with additional reporting Thursday.

Former President Bill Clinton hospitalized with non-Covid infection
NBC News | by Dartunorro Clark & Monica Alba | October 15, 2021
Former President Bill Clinton was hospitalized in Southern California on Tuesday evening, a spokesperson said Thursday.
Angel Urena, the spokesperson, said the illness is a non-Covid related infection.
“On Tuesday evening, President Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical Center to receive treatment,” he said in a statement. “He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care.”
Clinton’s doctors also released a statement.
“He was admitted to the hospital for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring. After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well,” Drs. Alpesh Amin and Lisa Bardack said in the statement. “The California-based medical team has been in constant communication with the President’s New York-based medical team, including his cardiologist. We hope to have him go home soon.”
A source close to Clinton said Thursday that he is in intensive care “as a precautionary measure.” The hospital needed to isolate him and not because his care required it, the source said. The original infection was diagnosed as urologic, but then it morphed into a broader one, the source said.
Clinton, 75, also has a history of heart problems.
In 2004, Clinton underwent a quadruple bypass operation at New York-Presbyterian Hospital to reroute his blood supply to circumvent four severely clogged arteries, The New York Times reported at the time. Clinton had complained of chest pains and shortness of breath. A team of surgeons then found extensive signs of heart disease, with blockages in some of Clinton’s arteries at well over 90 percent, the newspaper reported.
Clinton returned to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in 2010 to undergo another heart procedure, this time to insert two stents into a coronary artery.
Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton were scheduled to attend a private Clinton Foundation event in California Thursday evening.
Hillary Clinton went to the event to represent them both, according to a person close to Clintons, and then she went to be with her husband in Irvine, which is in Orange County.
