Looking back on it again, it’s pretty easy to relate to Hillary Clinton’s retelling of the popular and wildly uncomfortable moment that President Trump stood closely behind her during a presidential debate in October.
“He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled,” she wrote in an excerpt of her new book, “What Happened.”
Twitter users reacted in shock at Trump’s body language that same night. “Donald Trump is an irl egg account lurking in Hillary’s mentions,” joked one. “Trump’s looming body language standing behind Clinton is subtly threatening #predator #debate,” said another.
Clinton provided more insight into her discomfort:
This is not OK, 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.
