Forearm crutches to treat a broken toe, ‘What Happened’ to cause that?
Hillary Clinton was on book a tour in the UK last week to promote “What Happened” and claims that she fell and broke her toe while running down the stairs.
She had to cancel several interviews that week and appeared on “The Graham Norton Show” with a protective walking boot on her right foot, the Daily News reported.
“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards,” she said.
“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe,” Clinton continued, going on to say she received “excellent care” from the U.K.’s publicly funded healthcare system.

It must be a pretty bad break because she is now using forearm crutches.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Freelance reporter and political consultant Michael J. Hout tweeted a photo of Hillary Clinton using forearm crutches during a visit to Yale Law School Saturday. Clinton’s use of the walking aide comes after breaking her toe during a UK book tour to promote “What Happened.”
Clinton visited her alma mater on the same day she held a book signing event at the Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore in Middletown, CT. The bookstore had strict guidelines for book signing attendees — “She will sign a maximum of two books for each attendee and will not personalize books,” posted Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore on its website.
“Hillary Clinton at @YaleLawSch today wearing braces of some kind,” tweeted Hout.

FOX 61 has more on the book signing event in Middletown, CT:
Hillary Clinton was in Middletown on Saturday to sign her new book, “What Happened,” which talks about her 2016 campaign for president. The signing was at 11 a.m., however hundreds of people gathered outside R J Julia Bookstore in Middletown much earlier, some since 7 a.m.
Talia Mckeen, who is 7-years-old from East Granby wrote a letter to give to Hillary. Inside the card she wrote, ” Dear Mrs. Clinton thank you for running for president and helping lots of people with problems, we appreciate it very much thank you.”
About a dozen protesters gathered on the other side of the street, across from the bookstore.

I know many people who have broken their toes, myself included, and I have never seen so much medical attention required to treat something that is relatively minor.
Hillary Clinton has some serious medical issues, and while I do believe she fell and injured her toe, it was not because she was ‘running down the stairs’ with a cup of coffee.
Okay this will be my last one I promise but I can't help but agree with you. Somebody try to explain this one to me pic.twitter.com/DqCpPRG9qw
