Hillary Clinton returned to the campaign trail on Thursday after recovering from her pneumonia in less than a week, and a made a stop in North Carolina to attend a small rally of around 300 people.
As Clinton’s plane was set to land at the airport, a photographer snapped a picture of her motorcade and noticed an ambulance directly behind the large bus, along with a long line of security vehicles.

Perhaps Hillary needed an ambulance with experienced medical staff on hand just in case her pneumonia makes a comeback, or any other undisclosed medical issues that the public doesn’t know about yet.
Clinton supporters were quick to claim that having an ambulance in a presidential candidate’s motorcade is standard operations procedure, yet I’ve never witnessed one in Trump’s entourage. One twitter user pointed out this very fact.

And at another Trump event, no ambulance included in this motorcade either, as their was in Clinton’s:
It’s true that there is usually an ambulance on hand at the candidate’s rallies, usually parked outside near the police vehicles, but not traveling in their motorcade.
Perhaps Hillary’s miraculous recovery is still on shaky ground? If she is going to have an ambulance on hand at all times, she may as well get her own and have her campaign logo painted on the side of it for advertising.
Whether she is healthy or not, the entire country is going to be examining her behaviors very closely for the rest of this election, and any further indication of hidden medical problems could be the final straw for her candidacy.
Ben Garrison sums up the direction of the Clinton campaign perfectly in one of his recent cartoons.
