Dr. Drew: Fired From HLN For Claiming Hillary Clinton Has Brain Damage!

by at .

Last week, Dr. Drew Pinsky went on a radio show to discuss his concern over Hillary Clinton's health.  He also brought it up on his HLN show, Dr. Drew On Call, which stirred up a lot of controversy.

According to Jezebel, HLN's sister network, CNN announced on August 25th that On Call would be canceled, and that it was a mutual decision between the host and the network.

"Dr. Drew and I have mutually agreed to air the final episode of his show on September 22," CNN's EVP, Ken Jautz said in a statement.

"Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming.

"Their audience-driven shows, in particular, were innovative and memorable TV. And Dr. Drew has been an authoritative voice on addiction and on many other topical issues facing America today."

It's believed that Dr. Drew's assessment of Clinton's health care is what caused the network to reevaluate their need for the program.

It all started when Dr. Drew explained that he and a New York-based colleague reviewed Clinton's medical records that had been released to the public, and both doctors were "gravely" concerned about what they found.

Knowing that Clinton suffered (and recovered from) a concussion has Dr. Drew worried.  So worried that he felt the need tell everyone.

"That is brain damage, and it’s affecting her balance," he said during the radio interview.

"Now clearly, it hasn’t affected her cognition, but tell us a little more about that. That’s profound. And then number two, when they screened her for heart disease, again, they did an old-fashioned screen.

"It just seems like she’s getting care from somebody that she met in Arkansas when she was a kid, and you’ve got to wonder. You’ve got to wonder.

"It’s not so much that her health is a grave concern. It’s that the care she’s getting could make it a concern.

Dr. Drew said that he would continue to work at CNN as a contributor, and of course he has his hands full working with the ladies and gentlemen of Teen Mom.

Farrah Abraham, who has had issues with Dr. Drew in the past, has yet to tweet about the firing, but rest assured she'll say something soon.
