Just 2 years after a huge explosion killed scores in…
Hilary Clinton might have lost the American presidential election last year but she definitely has not let go of the campaign nor the defeat to President Donald Trump. In her newly released memoir, ‘What Happened’ she takes a big swing at President Trump.
In a reading of excerpts from the book she attacked Trump and expressed her aversion to his presence around her during the second of their presidential debates:
“It was incredibly uncomfortable,” she explains. “He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled. It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, well, what would you do? Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly, ‘Back up you creep, get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women but you can’t intimidate me, so back up.’”
Reading further she says: “I chose option A. I kept my cool, aided by a lifetime of dealing with difficult men trying to throw me off. I did, however, grip the microphone extra hard. I wonder, though, whether I should have chosen option B. It certainly would have been better TV. Maybe I have over-learned the lesson of staying calm, biting my tongue, digging my fingernails into a clenched fist, smiling all the while, determined to present a composed face to the world.”
It is left to be seen if President Trump will react to this publication by his former friend turned bitter foe.
