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.’”
