Clinton 'burst out laughing' at footage of Trump debate prep

Hillary Clinton said Friday that she "burst out laughing" when a former aide released a video that showed her preparing for a presidential debate against President Trump last fall.

“I burst out laughing when I saw this video this morning,” Clinton tweeted. “Hope it brightens your day.”

The video, shared by former Clinton aide Phillipe Reines, shows Phillipe standing in as Trump simulating a debate setup for a handshake. The simulated scenario shows Clinton practicing avoiding a hug from Trump.

In the video, Reine tries to hug Clinton, but she avoids the hug by shaking his hand. Reines then jokingly grabs Clinton to hug her as she heads back to her spot on the stage. 

Reines’ tweet comes after a Thursday report that former FBI Director James Comey once tried to blend into the curtains in the White House Blue Room to avoid being approached by Trump. 

Comey tried to avoid Trump during a reception honoring law enforcement officials, but was spotted by the president, who called out to him and joked that Comey had become “more famous” than him. Trump attempted to hug Comey, but Comey was reportedly only trying to shake Trump’s hand.
