Going viral on Friday night is a video Hillary Clinton tweeted out earlier in the day. In her tweet she writes , “I burst out laughing when I saw this video this morning. Hope it brightens your day.”
The video shows footage of debate prep session in which Clinton was pretending to go head to head against Trump. Playing the role of Trump, is Phillipe Reines.
In the video Reines is introduced as Trump. As he moves toward Clinton to shake hands, he decides last second to hug her. Clinton tries to avoid his hug and run away, but he catches her with a massive bear hug. The onlookers and Hillary laugh.
Reines’s tweeted the video after a report from the NY Times claims former FBI Director James Comey once tried to blend into the curtains in the White House Blue Room to avoid being approached by Trump.

Not easy to avoid the unwanted Trump hug, sometimes it even takes practice…
