LENOIR, North Carolina – Former President Bill Clinton is cracking wise about his ability to make people faint, telling voters in North Carolina he didn’t think he still had it in him.
Clinton was campaigning for his wife’s presidential bid on a hot and sunny day in western North Carolina. The state’s primary is Tuesday.
After one person fell during an event in Lenoir, Clinton joked that somebody faints at nearly every one of his political events and at his age, he didn’t think he could make anybody faint anymore.
A young girl walked away from an earlier event in Marion after fainting.
Emergency workers brought the elderly man in Lenoir water and ice and used campaign signs to fan him.
The man was alert as emergency workers took him away on a stretcher.
