March 16, 2018Mar 16, 2018

Hillary Clinton's visit to India has been filled with trouble. First, she slipped and almost fell downstairs twice. Now, reports are saying she fractured her wrist, said Fox News

According to reports by DNA India, the former secretary of state fractured her wrist after slipping in the bathtub. At the time, she was staying at a five-star resort.

After the fall in the bathtub, Clinton was taken to a hospital in the city of Jodphur. The hospital visit occurred around 5 a.m. local time on Wednesday.

At the hospital, Clinton was given an X-ray and a CT scan that confirmed a hairline fracture of her right wrist. Clinton was reportedly given a plaster bandage and advised to get her wrist checked in another three days. The injury does not impact Clinton's ability to travel.

"We did a CT scan and X-ray and found a hairline fracture around the wrist area. She was advised to take rest for few days and use a crepe bandage for support," a doctor at the hospital said, according to Yahoo.

The Times of India and DNA India both reported that Clinton had been treated for pain in her right hand. They did not initially know what caused the pain. They did report, however, that the pain had forced her to cancel a planned visit to the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort on Tuesday evening.

Earlier in the week, video surfaced, showing Clinton twice slipping on stairs twice as she visited the Jahaz Mahal in the ancient city of Mandu. In the video, Clinton appeared to use her right had to catch herself on the stairs before being helped down by two aides.

It was not immediately clear whether this first fall was the source of her injury. See the fall in the video below. 


Clinton is in India to promote her book "What Happened?" It chronicles her experience with the 2016 election, and she fell back onto her old reasons for why she lost to Donald Trump.

For not the first time, Clinton made the claim that she lost the election because white women wouldn't stand up to their husbands or other men in their lives. She claimed that those women didn't follow their own opinions but instead caved to pressure and voted Republican.

“We do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said at a conference in Mumbai, India. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”

Clinton was responding to a question about why 52 percent of white women voted for Trump rather than for her. They especially questioned this in the light of the “Access Hollywood” tape of Trump, which many believed would lose Trump the election.

Clinton also framed Trump's voters in a negative light. She said he ran a “backwards” campaign that appealed to "racists and misogynists."

"I won the places that represent two-thirds of America's gross domestic product,” Clinton said. “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, 'Make America Great Again,' was looking backwards."

She continued, claiming that this was now President Trump's message: “You know, you didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women, you know, getting jobs. You don't want, you know, to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I'm going to solve it."

Clinton also claimed that white women voted for Trump because they succumbed to "a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should."
