|Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) fainted yesterday while delivering a speech on Social Security before a Buffalo women’s group.|
Clinton, 57, stopped midspeech to remove an extra layer of clothing and sit down, said Susan Grelick, a local elected official who was at the event.
“Then she went in the back, and she came out and she proceeded to talk about Social Security,” Grelick said. “She was very coherent, like she always is. She had energy; she always has a high energy level. … And she said, ‘You know, I really can’t proceed.’
She said, ‘I guarantee a rain check.’ And she started to faint, and her staffers grabbed her and put her down on the chair. It was an instant. It was only an instant.”
