Oh no! Attorney General Eric Holder has been taken to a Washington, D.C. hospital after suffering from chest pains, faintness and shortness of breath. We hope he’s okay.

Attorney General Eric Holder was taken to Washington Hospital Center at around 9.30 a.m. on Feb. 27 after telling his senior staff about the symptoms during a daily meeting. He is reportedly alert and conscious but it is unclear at this time when he will be released from the hospital.

Attorney General Eric Holder Hospitalized — Holder Suffered From Chest Pains

City dispatchers got a 911 call at 9:43 a.m. reporting the attorney general’s condition, a city official tells the Washington Post. Attorney General Holder’s office has since released a statement saying that the 63-year-old father-of-three is in good condition, according to the UK’s Daily Mail. What a relief!



“As a precaution, the Attorney General was taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center to undergo further evaluation,” Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon said in the statement. “He is currently resting comfortably and in good condition. He is alert and conversing with his doctors. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.”

We hope the Attorney General gets well soon and is released from the hospital as soon as possible.

President Obama Wishes Attorney General Eric Holder A ‘Speedy Recovery’

Attorney General Holder is a close confidant of President Barack Obama, who, no doubt, is very concerned about his friend’s well-being.

“The president was notified and, of course, wishes him a speedy recovery,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney.

My mother taught me to say nothing at all if you can’t say something nice. On that note, I sure hope his insurance covers his visit to the hospital! I hope he doesn’t have an enormous deductible!
