Hillary Slips and Falls Again
Clinton fell as she boarded the plane Tuesday. The former first lady appeared to have a problem climbing the stairway and then stumbles and falls as soon as she entered the aircraft. This might be due to her low center of gravity and extremely small feet, causing her to lose balance easily.
Clinton's trip to Yemen was aimed at helping it's government resolve internal conflicts and make progress in the joint fight against resurgent Al-Qaeda wing.
The Secretary of State has had this problem before and it is widely speculated that her frequent falls are due to her body shape. Around a year and a half ago she broke her elbow when she stumbled and fell while rushing to a State Department meeting.
Legendary fairy tale character Humpty Dumpty had exactly the same problem Hillary does.
Hillary's problem is further compounded by her lack of ankles, which limit her foot dexterity. Simply put, she cannot swivel and turn quickly because she has no ankle joints. The medical term for this problem is called "cankles."
Without the ability to move her feet quickly, she will sometimes stumble and fall in situations where people with normal ankles can quickly maneuver to safety.
The term "cankle" was derived from the English word "calf" meaning wide portion of the lower leg, and the word "ankle" meaning slender joint of leg with foot.
There is no cure for this problem, the afflicted person must just be very cautious when trying to move quickly or balance themselves.
