Hillary Clinton, 68, appeared wobbly this morning on Sept. 11 after taking part in a 9/11 anniversary service, according to CNN. She ended up leaving the ceremony at about 9:30 a.m. due to feeling “overheated,” according to her campaign team. She left right as family members of the 2,977 victims were reading through their names, and before a moment of silence at 9:58 a.m. in honor of the collapse of the South Tower.

An unconfirmed video appears to show a woman who looks like the former Secretary of State stumble as she gets into her van and leaves the event. Her team issued a statement shortly after. “Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for one hour and 30 minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better,” Hillary’s spokesman Nick Merrill said.
As Nick stated, the former first lady went to her daughter Chelsea‘s apartment where she rested and emerged a little before noon. She smiled and waved to both reporters and supporters on her way out and said she was “feeling great.” “It’s a beautiful day in New York,” she added before getting into her motorcade. Looks like Hillary will be just fine! After all, it’s not uncommon to get overheated in 80 degree weather!
“There are times in all of our lives when we don’t feel well,” Michael Morell, the former CIA deputy director, said to the news outlet. “I missed some of the briefings immediately after 9/11 because I wasn’t feeling well. So let’s not make more of this than there is.” Michael added that he was actually with Hillary on Sept. 9 for a national security meeting and “she looked fantastic. She had high energy.”
