Not so healthy?

A leaked email exchange between a Hillary Clinton staffer and a public relations executive revealed that the Democratic nominee required additional assistance getting in and out of her SUV.

A February 2016 email with the subject line "HRC Car" shows that Clinton's health could have forced her to need a "little step" to get into and out of her SUV.

The leaked email comes from the trove of exchanges posted by DC Leaks when Clinton staffer Ian Mellul's email account was hacked.

This particular email exchange involved staffer Jason Chung and publicist Laura Gross discussing Clinton's desire to have a specially-equipped car.

"I hope you don't think this is a silly question, but if you do - oh well," Gross wrote. She then specified that she saw the phrase "retractable floorboard" for "HRC's Suburban," the SUV Clinton uses for transportation.

"Three times I have seen the term 'retractable floorboard' in regard to HRC's Suburban. USS flagged this for me. They are assuming you mean 'retractable running boards,'" Gross wrote.

Gross needed to confirm that the special request had to due with Clinton's need for easier access getting into and out of the SUV. "No matter the terminology, I'm assuming you mean the things that come out from the side of the car, so it's easier to get out — sort of like a little step. Correct?" Gross asked.

Chung then said that Clinton's campaign needed SUVs that have "like almost a little step that comes down," according to The Washington Free Beacon

Though it has not been confirmed that this request was for Clinton's health specifically, her consistent coughing fits and bout of pneumonia have raised concerns from voters as to whether she is fit to assume the position of commander-in-chief.
