Clinton had to contend with falling flag poles at a press conference Monday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - She has come under increased heat recently from her Democratic presidential rivals, but on Sunday Sen. Hillary Clinton was on the receiving end of a different kind of attack - falling flag poles.
The Democratic presidential frontrunner was wrapping up a press conference in Waterloo, Iowa when several large flag poles directly behind her started to fall down, as shown on a video posted by ABC News.
Aides came rushing to the stage as Clinton herself tried to handle the falling flags crashing around her.
"I think the bases are not weighted enough," the New York senator can be heard saying on video captured by ABC.
After a couple minutes, the flags were successfully stabilized.
Anyone else see the irony of this? If you elect Hillary this is what you can expect. The falling down of America even further than it is today.
Thank you, CNN, for hard-hitting political stories like this one. Keep on doing your part to keep the electorate informed enough to make educated decisions at the polls.
You worthless sods.
Haha. About the same thing that would happen to this country if she made it in office.
Coincidence?! I think not! She really just can't catch a break. She's been crashing and fumbling the past two weeks. She really should just go ahead and give up. A 3rd place finish in Iowa is going to be very embarassing.
See, even the flag poles don't want Hillary on the presidential stage...He He He!
I'm glad no one was not hurt.
Even the flags wants truth.They just said , Hilary you just finished from telling some lies there!
This is not news
An omen if Hillary becomes Prez.??? Me thinks so.
I am surprised that the right wing did not claim this as a character defect showing she is soft of terrorism.
Sign of things to come. This fraud is coming downn fast.
There is a sign for you.
These are Obama/Edwards flag poles with weak bases. You should see them fall starting in January 2008.
American flags attack Hillary on the day before Veterns day. Isn't it ironic...
How apropo – the stage around Hillary falling apart.
Immediately my mind hears Hillary citing a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy and her husband Bill blaming her opponents for another swiftboat moment.
I guess they Couldn't take it anymore either. Just give us straight answers.
She's so polarizing, even the metal in the flagpoles was repelled!
Did this happen on Sunday, as indicated in the text, or Monday, as indicated in the photo caption?
Either way, I'm glad that Hillary wasn't injured, and the opportunity to help right the flags.
Could there possibly be a clearer sign? Rather an ominous warning, I would say.
Any Republican should be praying she gets the nomination. Any Democrat should know better.
Frankly, the 90s were terrible and I don't want them back
It seems sort of prophetic. Clinton speaks, the American flags fall. Very chilling symbolism...
So, you guys are not really siding anyone, it's just you report tabloid news, huh?
Amazing to "the trusted name in news"
How very symbolic.

Hey Paul. Your comment doesn't make sense and it only shows that you are supporting a very, very shallow politican.
Didn't the television lights come crashing down around Bill & Hillary Clinton during a 60 minutes interview in a hotel somewhere in the 1990s? I remember seeing the clip once on television and from the look of panic on their faces it was evident they didn't know what was happening but thought it was an attack of some sort.
