The first audio excerpt from Hillary Clinton’s new book, What Happened has just been released and in it she talks about the debates with Donald Trump in which he crept up on her from behind.
Says Clinton in the excerpt: “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 in him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly, ‘back up, you creep.'”
Here’s a transcript of the “creep” excerpt, via Mediaite:
“It was the second presidential debate and Donald Trump was looking behind me. Two days before the world heard him brag about groping woman. Now we were on a small stage and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. 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.’”
