Can't shake the cough! Hillary Clinton chokes up at Florida rally and pops a throat lozenge just minutes before she's helped down a set of stairs by an aide as health woes continue to plague her
- Clinton made it through 95 minutes of debate on Monday night without her notorious cough showing up
- But in a brief discussion with reporters on her campaign plane on Tuesday morning she was coughing again
- Friday she couldn't stop coughing and clearing her throat as she neared the end of her remarks at a Florida event and popped a cough drop
- At the end of her remarks, as she was headed for the exit, Clinton had to reach out for her lead Secret Service agent's arm and steady herself
- Since developing pneumonia, she's had coughing fits several times and observers have noticed strangeness about her gaze
Hillary Clinton's cough reappeared Friday morning.
The Democratic presidential nominee choked up during a Florida speech on national service and had to pop a cough drop as she was approaching her big finish.
'We love you, Hillary!' an audience member shouted, giving her time to recompose herself. 'Thank you!!' Clinton replied.
She coughed once more and cleared her throat three additional times before she fully recovered.
At the end of her remarks, as she was headed for the exit, Breitbart News noted that Clinton had to reach out for her lead Secret Service agent's arm and steady herself for a moment before she descended down the steps.
It was the second time this week Clinton lost the struggle to control her voice in public. Since developing pneumonia, she's had coughing fits several times and observers have noticed strangeness about her gaze.

Clinton covered her mouth briefly to cough as she spoke to reporters on board her plane Tuesday.
It interrupted a claim of triumph in the debate, which many had been watching avidly for clues as to her true state of health.
Clinton successfully lasted the full 95 minutes of the event - which over-ran by five minutes - and it was Trump's persistent sniffing which was widely noticed.
Her health was not raised by Lester Holt, the debate moderator, and Trump also refrained from directly discussing it.
Instead he raised it after Holt asked him about a previous comment, that Clinton did not have 'the presidential look'.
'She doesn't have the look. She he doesn't have the stamina,' he said.
'You have so many different things you have to be able to do and I don't believe Hillary has the stamina.'
Clinton drew attention to her health the next morning and again on Friday at an event in Fort Pierce as she was overcome with coughing.
'When you listen to what's being said in this campaign, it can be discouraging right?' she was saying. 'Now I am well aware that candidates don't usually focus on national service in the final stretch of a hotly-fought presidential election.
She added, 'Some might say, "Well, hey my gosh, you've only got 39 days to go, why aren't you just out there beating up your opponent and doing everything to get the vote out and all the rest of it? Well, I'll do that.'
