Hillary Clinton Reveals What She Really Wanted To Say To Trump During A Debate

In an attempt to “pull back the curtain” on her losing bid for the presidency, Hillary Clinton is writing a book titled, “What Happened?”

The book includes moments from the campaign that she wanted to remember forever, as well as others she wished she could “go back and do over.”

The book is set to come out on September 12th, but Clinton read audio excerpts from the book on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday morning.

In the recording, Clinton spoke about the second presidential debate that took place in St. Louis on October 9th.

Reading from her book, Clinton said, “This is not okay, I thought. It was the second presidential debate, and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces.”

She continued, “It was incredibly uncomfortable. 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.’”

Trump’s actions during the debate were viewed as bullying even before Clinton recounted…
The Washington Post’s Sarah L. Kaufman wrote, “Trump paced and rocked and grimaced as spoke; he broke into her time by shouting over her. When she protested that she had not done the same to him, he shot back with all the finesse you’d hear in a middle school gym: ‘That’s ’cause you got nothin’ to say.’ When it was his turn to speak, Trump got angry, pointed at her, swung his arms around with alarming force.”
David Givens, director of the Center for Nonverbal Studies said, “Trump’s constant pacing and restless movements around the stage attracted attention from Hillary’s words, and visually disrespected her physical presence on the stage, as in ‘I am big, you are small,’”
Clinton also made it clear that “What Happened?” is not a comprehensive account of the 2016 race. It was very difficult for her to write.
Clinton said, “Every day that I was a candidate for president, I knew that millions of people were counting on me, and I couldn’t bear the idea of letting them down — but I did,” she said. “I couldn’t get the job done, and I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life.”
Clinton concluded by saying, “In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.”
