Hillary Clinton takes a slip – twice – as she walks down stairs during India visit

CAIRO: Hillary Clinton has once again taken a topple, this time while descending stairs during a visit to India this week, just five months after she broke a toe in London.

The former presidential candidate tumbled not once, but twice as walked down stairs during her visit to the ancient fort of Jahaz Mahal in India’s central Mandu city, according to the Daily Mail.

Clinton slipped on the first few steps, but was saved from falling by a man who was able to hold her up by her left arm.

But as another man came to her aid, she tripped again, nearly falling to the floor as her leg extended out in front of her.

Refusing to be beaten Clinton then kicked off her sandals and continued barefoot without issue.

Clinton is in India to promote her book on her loss in the 2016 presidential elections.

Last year, the former US First Lady broke her toe while walking down a set of stairs at a London hotel.

Barbados appoints Ambassador Rihanna

  • Rihanna's home country tasked her with promoting investment and tourism
  • The singer has scored 14 number-one singles on the US Billboard chart

NEW YORK: Rihanna is now Ambassador Rihanna, after her home country tasked her with promoting investment and tourism.
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley said that Rihanna — real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty — has been conferred the title of ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary.
While the singer will not be formally accredited to another country, Mottley said that Rihanna — whose more colorful songs include “Bitch Better Have My Money” — would be in charge of bringing investment as well as encouraging education and tourism.
“I couldn’t be more proud to take on such a prestigious title in my home country. Every Barbadian is going to have to play their role in this current effort, and I’m ready and excited to take on the responsibility,” Rihanna said in a statement dated Thursday.
Rihanna, 30, grew up in a troubled home in Barbados and was propelled to fame after visiting US producer Evan Rogers recognized her talents.
The singer, who since achieving stardom has lived primarily in Los Angeles and New York, has scored 14 number-one singles on the US Billboard chart, more than any artist except The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Mariah Carey.
