Stephen Colbert ripped Karl Rove and the media for the absurd fabrication last week suggesting that Hillary Clinton has suffered brain damage because she wore sunglasses after she left the hospital. There were other symptoms of "strange behavior" as well, Colbert pointed out. During the Benghazi hearings, she showed a "mastery of facts, and an unshakable confidence, all while wearing glasses that are like orthopedic shoes for your face."

Of course, Rove later went on Fox News to "unpologize" for the suggestion, saying it is legitimate to wonder about Hillary's health because "she's hidden a lot."

Colbert agreed, of course. "Who knows what other diseases we could wonder if she has: scurvy, gingivitis, restless leg syndrome, Cooper's droop, popcorn lung?"

But there are other public figures who we should also be concerned about, Colbert says. Like Karl Rove. He exhibited a lost sense of time when he said Hillary spent 30 days in the hospital, when she only spent three. What is wrong with Karl Rove's brain? "He is protecting his skull with a thick cushion of meat."

Wait until you hear Colbert's final diagnosis:
