Harry Reid Leaves Hospital After Doctors Diagnose Him as ‘Exhausted’

Updated 7:15 p.m. | Majority Leader Harry Reid has been released from the hospital, where he was diagnosed as “exhausted,” his spokesman said late Friday.

Senator Reid has been released from the hospital and is back at home with his wife, Landra,” spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement. “As previously stated, he went to the hospital as a precaution. The doctors diagnosed him as exhausted, not anything more serious, and have cleared him to go back to work. He spent today resting, talking to family, friends and colleagues, reading the news and discussing Senate business. He appreciates the kind words and thoughts sent by so many, thanks the doctors at George WashingtonUniversity Hospital for the excellent care he received, and wishes everyone a Happy Holidays.”

The Nevada Democrat earlier missed the final votes of 2013.

“Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital. Tests have been conducted and everything is normal,” Jentleson said earlier in a statement. “He is alert, resting and feeling better.”

The No. 2 Senate Democrat, Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, stood in for Reid at the Senate’s opening on Friday morning and said he had spoken to Reid.

“The majority leader is absent today and I will be acting in his place,” Durbin said. “Senator Reid called me this morning. He sounded good and we look forward to his speedy recovery.”

Today is the Senate’s last day of legislative business after an agreement was reached Thursday night setting up a Jan. 6 confirmation vote for Janet L. Yellen to be chairwoman of the Federal Reserve.

    Harry Reid your Mormonism will not save you from your idolatries and thefts. The democratic party is the philosophy of the French Revolution. The
    New Testament in first Corinthians 6: 9 7 10 warns all those on planet
    earth including the democratic party in America not to covet, not to
    steal and not to extort of thy neighbors property. French Revolutionary
    idolaters have come to America. George Washington but more importantly
    the Hebrew God warned this day would come. There will be a price to
    pay for your IDOLATRY, it is coming upon your head, in this life, on
    this planet soon. Your French Revolutionary beliefs will be destroyed,
    along with you. Civil wars and wars between countries are going to
    happen in the near future all over planet Earth. What will you demand
    then, charity from the people you have stolen from, idolaters?

      Very well said and also our Founding Fathers said…
      The Declaration of Independence tells us that the Founders adopted the
      “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” as stated in the first sentence:

      “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them”.

    Reid is exhausted? That’s all? I’ve been let down. Hairy deserves something much greater than mere exhaustion! On the other hand, he might now understand how the American People feel after being mauled over the last five years by the Red Negro and himself. Never happen! Nice thought though.

  • Richard Tebaldi

    He must have been running after Obama’s car to get “exhausted”!!!! What’s he do besides talk?

    • Redleg7

      Maybe Harry’s not exhausted …. but he nauseates the hell out of me.

  • steven

    True is the doctors told him obamacare won’t pay to have his head removed obamas butt.

  • Alexis

    Not as exhausted as America is of him.

    In a more equitable spirit than that of Harry Reid’s devotion to ‘Social justice’ – ‘What’s good for the goose being good for the gander – by my rules not yours”? Equal Distribution – of misery, but not of wealth:

    Harry, America wishes for you ‘exactly’ what you wish for America: We
    wish you the ‘unnatural’ DEATH of everything fine that you’ve spent
    your life working for, believing in, earning with your body, mind, and
    spirit, ‘for yourself and your loved ones to have, hold and to
    keep, ’til ‘natural’ death does them part’:

    Your health, and your healthcare, your assets and bank accounts,
    your family’s health and economic welfare, your rights – all of them,
    preserved without interference from pesky despots stealing all of
    your life’s hard-earned benefits from you – for themselves.

    We know that you have earned this ‘death’ of all of the above, and will receive all of it – much before your life’s ‘Use by’ date has extended much further beyond its current ‘past due’ grace period.

    In the same spirit of your ‘Use by’ date of America’s life, America will see you ‘used up long before’ the date of your planned extension of the continued death of its hopes, wishes and dreams – and your ‘expected 2021′ retirement date, and – your delusional expectancy of eternal future benefits from your Death-of-America, for your family. (Goose:Gander).

    We know that you have earned this ‘death’ of all of the above, and will receive all of it – much before your life’s ‘natural’ ‘Use by’ date has extended much further beyond its current ‘past due’ grace period. In the same spirit of your planned ‘unnatural’ ‘Use by’ Death Date of America’s life, America will see you ‘used up long before’ the date of your planned extension of the continued death of its hopes, wishes and dreams – and your ‘expected 2021′ retirement date, and – your delusional expectancy of eternal future benefits from your Death-of-America, for your family. (Goose:Gander).

    Residence in that ‘Hell’, is pre-paid – by you. You won’t need tax-payer subsidies, or a doctor – neither will be of any benefit to you. there Period.

    P.S. Bon voyage! “Merry Social Justice!”

    Sometimes the price is dear for being a liar, cheat, and a thief.
