During her Friday campaign rally in Fort Pierce, Florida, Hillary Clinton stifled what appeared to be the beginnings of yet another coughing fit.
“I’m trying to end the campaign focusing on issues really close to my heart,” Clinton rasped. “And this is one of them.”
According to the American Mirror, Clinton first attempted to play off the event by “getting emotional about a line she was delivering from the teleprompter.”
She then cleared her throat and coughed once, prompting a rally-goer to shout, “we love you Hillary!”
“Thank you,” Clinton responded, drawing raucous applause from the crowd.
The former secretary of state placed a throat lozenge in her mouth before attempting to continue her speech.
