Hillary Trips While Boarding Plane
Two days after equating the disturbed young man who allegedly shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords to radical Islam, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tripped and took a pretty bad fall while boarding an airplane in Yemen.
Clinton was not able to get up until an aide came to help her. Someone else onboard the plane turned out the lights so cameras could not catch the embarrassing incident, but it was too late.
The UK Daily Mail reports that Clinton was not injured in the fall, save for a bruised ego.
Clinton was in Yemen seeking support from Yemeni President Ali Abdallah Saleh against Al Queda forces in his country. The two reportedly met for three hours discussing the issue.
