Watch Hillary Clinton Try to Avoid Hugging Trump Stand-In During Debate Prep

19 Mai, 2017, 22:14 | Author: Claudine Rigal

The video shows Clinton and the man playing the role of Trump approaching one another on a debate stage. "A favorite moment from debate prep (9/24/16)".

After the New York Times reported that former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey tried to avoid being hugged by President Trump at an event in January, Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines, who played Trump during debate prep last fall, tweeted a video of Clinton trying to avoid his attempt at a Trump hug.

Reines, who stood in for Trump in the Clinton campaign's debate prep sessions, seemingly shared the video of prep for what he dubbed "the unwanted Trump hug" in response to a story from Benjamin Wittes, the editor of the blog Lawfare and a self-described "friend" of ousted FBI Director James Comey. She tries to give him a high-five instead and he jokingly chases after and hugs her anyway as the Clinton staff laughs behind the camera.

Soft applause can be heard in the background as Clinton makes her way towards the Trump stand-in, waving to the nonexistent crowd.

"I burst out laughing when I saw this video this morning", Clinton tweeted. It was bad enough there was going to be a handshake.

Comey, who Wittes said "stood in the back, right in front of the drapes, hoping Trump wouldn't notice him camouflaged against the wall", went to shake Trump's hand. In the video, Clinton can be seen dodging an attempt at a hug from "Trump". The simulated scenario shows Clinton practicing avoiding a hug from Trump.
