“Just a minute, I’ve got to get a lozenge,” she said in rasped breath.

School staff approached the podium to offer her a bottle of water, much to the humor of the graduating class.

Clinton thanked the official and attempted to continue on with her speech. She made a recovery a few moments later.

Clinton’s health became a topic of discussion during her time on the presidential campaign.

During a 9/11 memorial ceremony, Clinton fainted while trying to discreetly leave. Her campaign later reported that Clinton felt overheated as a result of pneumonia.
