That elevated platform has been used on her campaign trail to give her an excuse to have help moving as soon as she stops talking. She seems to “freeze” in place and can’t turn and walk away without help. By making a point of getting on and off a platform with gallant help from nearby men, she conceals her problems with mobility. Instead of being frozen in place and having someone walk up and tow her away from her mic, she has someone walk up and “help the lady down” from that big bad platform.
Notice she wasn’t 5’ 4” inches until now? No height issues during previous elections.
