She doesn't trip.
She fell over while leaning against the pillar. But here judging by her feet you can tell she's not even conscious and is being dragged into the van. That reminds me of my college days, dragging a passed out friend who drank too much over to the couch.
Yet we have someone in here challenging folks to an honest debate who wants to blame it on arthritis. Lol. Can't make this stuff up.
Arthritis. Heat exhaustion. Dehydration. Those are reasonable guesses. It is unreasonable, if you aren;t a medical professional, to want to jump to Parkinson's disease, stroke or some mystery illness that is treated by an epi pen that was a flashlight.
Symptoms of Heat Exhaustion
The most common signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion include:
Dark-colored urine (a sign of dehydration)
Muscle or abdominal cramps
Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
Treatment for Heat Exhaustion
If you, or anyone else, has symptoms of heat exhaustion, it's essential to immediately get out of the heat and rest, preferably in an air-conditioned room. If you can't get inside, try to find the nearest cool and shady place.
Other recommended strategies include:
Drink plenty of fluid (avoid caffeine and alcohol).
Remove any tight or unnecessary clothing.
Take a cool shower, bath, or sponge bath.
Apply other cooling measures such as fans or ice towels.
If such measures fail to provide relief within 15 minutes, seek emergency medical help, because untreated heat exhaustion can progress to heat stroke.
After you've recovered from heat exhaustion, you'll probably be more sensitive to high temperatures during the following week. So it's best to avoid hot weather and heavy exercise until your doctor tells you that it's safe to resume your normal activities.
Risk Factors for Heat Exhaustion
Heat exhaustion is strongly related to the heat index, which is a measurement of how hot you feel when the effects of relative humidity and air temperature are combined. A relative humidity of 60% or more hampers sweat evaporation, which hinders your body's ability to cool itself.
The risk of heat-related illness dramatically increases when the heat index climbs to 90 degrees or more. So it's important -- especially during heat waves -- to pay attention to the reported heat index, and also to remember that the heat index is even higher when you are standing in full sunshine.

It really is remarkable that Hillarys supporters will rush to her defence and try to explain away her obvious health problems, or outright deny reality.
Personality Cult much?
For the record it is somewhat seen in Trump supporters when he makes some of his less eloquent statements.
Of course that comparison is like comparing a forest fire to a cigarette ember, but the same behaviour is observed.

Reldra,I have starred you numerous times in the past as you are always a voice of reason in normally a frankly absurd thread from prolific agenda driven posters
ON this incident Hillary needs to explain her recent illness and if it's a really serious medical issue I just hope her friends and family tell her to bow out and get better
With someone else then perhaps these health issues would disapate and instead the politics of both parties can be discussed and picked apart
