Hillary Clinton has slipped on a set of stairs yet again، just five months after breaking her toe in London، Dailymail reported.

Cameras were rolling in Mandu، India on Monday as Clinton descended a set of stone stairs at the Jahaj Maha palace and slipped not once but twice even as aides held her by the arms.

After the second slip، Clinton kicked off her sandals and proceeded the rest of the way down the steps without incident.

Top aide Huma Abedin was walking right behind Clinton during the incident.


The former Democrat presidential candidate was speaking in India to promote her book، What Happened، explaining her loss in the 2016 election.

Clinton blamed the defeat on voters who 'didn’t like black people getting rights' or women getting jobs، video of her remarks on Sunday shows.

The spill is the latest in a series of high-profile falls that - fairly or not - have led Clinton's opponents to speculate about a possible underlying health issue.

Clinton، 70، has brushed off most of the incidents as routine mishaps or simple clumsiness.

In October 2017، she was in London promoting her book when she arrived on the set of the Graham Norton Show wearing a surgical boot.

'I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand، I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards،' she explained in the interview. 'I tried to get up and it really hurt. I've broken my toe.'

During the presidential campaign، cameras caught Clinton leaving the 911 memorial in Manhattan and collapsing into the arms of Secret Service agents as she got into a waiting van. She later announced she'd been diagnosed with dehydration and pneumonia.

Perhaps most infamously، Clinton fell inside her home in 2013 on the eve of testimony before a Senate committee investigating Benghazi. She got a mild concussion and was treated for a blood clot near her brain.

When she appeared in Congress to testify، she was wearing special prism eyeglass lenses، which are used to assist people experiencing double vision.

Clinton has since returned to her normal contact lens eye-wear، though conspiracy theorists still delight in analyzing her sunglasses for signs of prism lenses.
