Skip to comments.Watch: Hillary Clinton Steadies Herself Before Going Down Stairs

After finishing a campaign speech in Fort Pierce, Florida, Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton grasped an arm to steady herself before going down the steps off the stage.
After walking to the top of the stairs, she paused and pointed at someone. A man, perhaps a Secret Service agent, approached her from behind and offered her his arm.

Clinton steadied herself and took one step, but let go of his arm as she descended the remaining four steps required to leave the stage.

No Margaret Thatcher, she.
Yes sir, healthy as an ox.
Look how those guys are looking at her, just waiting for her to fall !!!
Gee it would be horrible if she took a header off those steps.
Her housecoat can’t hide her tremendous girth.
Imagine a broken hip at her age.
She’s just “powering through!!”
Just one little inadvertant push, SS. Just one...
walking and moving in a slow and unsteady way because of old age
WOW...she really “powered through” those four steps...once she was able to steady herself...with help.
frickin doesn’t matter :(
just a flesh wound!
What’s with the two fingers raised thing???
Her ‘taste’ in clothing is just as hideous as Michelle O.
Women who are physically inactive can lose their sense of balance. She needs to do yoga and walk 3 miles a day. It would strengthen her core muscles and help her sense of balance. This is the least of Hillary’s problems.
For what it’s worth, I have Multiple Sclerosis and I do the same with my husband. I cannot maneuver the steps (especially down) without him...Going up the steps isn’t pretty either but with a railing nearby, I can do it. As someone suffering from a neurological disorder, I recognize a lot of her “movement” issues because they are so similar to my own.
Fort Pierce rally included a hoarseness episode and grabbing for a lozenge, now these lower extremity issues, hesitation stepping off. Still has Coral Springs to get through. That pneumonia can be stubborn stuff.

Hillary at the Fort Pierce rally today looked frail. During the final 5 minutes of her speech her voice became weak and clotted with phlegm. And then she needed help down the stairs! The help was 100% pre-planned and choreographed.
Frame 1 Hillary walks to the stairs, turns sideways, looks at her feet, reaches her right arm out to the side and waits. She never looks up, never signals for help, does not meet the eyes of others, she just waits like that. A SS-type slips around the corner and approaches her.
Frame 2 Without communication or eye-contact, the SS-type offers not his open hand for her to put hers into but rather offers his hand and forearm in a rigid pose so she can use it to lean against as she lowers herself down the first step. (I am guessing the Hillary campaign thought this hand-hold-without-holding-hands pose would look less conspicuous or frailbut I say the overly slick choreography makes it look worse.) She goes down the first step or so sideways before managing the bottom few steps more naturally.
Note that all the SS who go down the stairs after her do so without trouble, need for a hand, and step down the stairs facing forward.
