In her upcoming memoir “What Happened”, Hilary Clinton is calling out Donald Trump for his behavior during last year’s presidential debate in which Trump basically stalked Clinton around the stage. In spite of the hilarious Twitter memes that came from the debacle, Trump’s actions were no laughing matter to the former First Lady as Clinton admitted to feeling “unsure” how to address the situation with Trump, especially since the debate happened just days after the infamous Access Hollywood tape was leaked to the public.
According to Entertainment Weekly, “Morning Joe” has released an excerpt from Hilary’s new book in which she writes, “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, carry on, and keep smiling as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your personal space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly, ‘back up you creep. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can’t intimidate me, so back off.’ I chose option A. I kept my cool, aided by a lifetime of difficult men trying to throw me off. I did grip the microphone extra hard. I wonder, though, if I should have chosen option B. It certainly would’ve been better TV. Maybe I have over-learned the lesson of staying calm.”
Aside from her feelings on those uncanny presidential debates, Clinton also expresses regret and what she wishes she could do differently in her failed 2016 presidential campaign. She also describes what it felt like to run against Donald Trump as the first woman nominated by a major US political party. Hilary Clinton’s timely memoir, “What Happened”, is set to be released on September 12th.
