*Echoing the great stumbles of President Ford, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tripped up the stairs of her plane as she left Yemen on Tuesday.
It would’ve been uneventful had cameras not been rolling – and YouTube not been invented.
Clinton was in Yemen to discuss counter-terrorism cooperation on Wednesday when she stumbled briefly upon re-entering her airplane. She was uninjured, and in fact, poked fun at the slip during a meeting at her next stop in the Gulf state of Qatar.
Qatar’s ruler, welcoming Clinton to his palace, spoke about how he had fallen in his home and Clinton responded with her own story.
“It happened to me just yesterday actually. I was going up the stairs to the airplane and I was looking over my back and waving and then I turned and there was a bump in the, in the entry into the plane. You know, those things happen,” she added.
