The mystery surrounding why Hillary Clinton was late getting back on the stage at the last Democratic debate seems to have been solved.

The former first lady apologized to the live television audience Saturday for returning to the Manchester, New Hampshire stage late with just a simple ‘sorry’.

It’s been revealed that Clinton returned late because she was using the restroom during the commercial break at St Anselm College. She reportedly had exactly one minute and 45 seconds to walk out of the gymnasium to the women’s restroom, and exactly the same amount of time to return back to the stage.

However, instead of using the restroom right away to get back to the stage on-time, Clinton waited for it to be completely cleared out so that she wouldn’t have to share the bathroom that had a few stalls available for usage, The Boston Globe reported.

Clinton, who seemingly displayed what her competition would call ‘not your average American behavior,’ had a staffer stationed strategically outside of the restroom to presumably avoid having to share, the Globe reported.

The unnamed staffer reportedly allowed Lis Smith, the deputy campaign manager for former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, to use the restroom moments before Clinton arrived.
