No, she is not keeling over in this video, and — no — she isn’t being propped up by members of her security detail as they wait for her campaign van to whisk her away. But presidential wannabe Hillary Clinton does seem to find it extraorfinarily difficult to negotiate a flight of stairs in this surprise video recorded and posted by Liz Kreutz of ABC News.
According to Kreutz’s post on Twitter, the footage was shot as Clinton exited Appleseeds Kids Center in Manhattan.

The Clinton campaign has been adamant in its denial that the candidate is suffering problems with her balance or vision, either one of which (or both) could be a factor in the obvious difficulty she has descending a short flight of steps. Team Clinton has continued its denials even after photos of the interior of her campaign, “Scoobie,” leaked out, revealing that the vehicle is handicapped-ready, complete with a wheelchair and ramp.
Her struggles with the stairs is just the latest indicator of ongoing health issues. Last week I wrote about Clinton’s eyes moving separately, rather than in sync, during a speech. This prompted a Texas doctor to add his voice to the chorus of health professionals who believe she should undergo a neurological exam.
