Clinton's rep tells us ... 69-year-old George went to see his doctor for a routine check-up when the decision was made to keep him in the facility so Clinton could receive proper treatment for a staph infection in one of his legs.

I wasn't familiar with him, so I thought maybe I'd google his picture and he'd be one of those Memba them types who were hot in then they had a run-in with the rough life...

HE LOOKS THE SAME.. A LITTLE [IF POSSIBLE] MORE BEAT UP TODAY

To all my fellow Clones, Funkateers (and new stem-cells), Everything is on The ONE, and without that One, there is none. Get well Dr. Funkenstien, but take your time. To the curious; free your mind and your A** will follow. To those who boo and disapprove, FUNK is the TRUTH that knocks the brains from your falsehoods so that you may forever be D'void...
