Upon completing her introduction of GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, running mate Carly Fiorina slipped and fell from site behind the podium on stage at a rally in LaFayette, Ind. Cruz, emerging from backstage, appeared to glance at his unfortunate wing-woman then kept shaking hands as his wife, Heidi, gave Fiorina a hand up.

Later, at his own Indiana rally, Donald Trump characterized the incident as “a weird deal.” He had other things to say about it, too.
