The cast of “Morning Joe” released excerpts of Hillary’s new book Wednesday morning, and they reveal that Donald Trump’s intimidation tactics toward Clinton during presidential debates “made her skin crawl” and that she wanted to say, “Back up, you creep.”
“What would you do? Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space?” the former Democratic nominee asks in, “What Happened.”
“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.’”
She describes the debate experience in provocative language, calling it “humbling,” “exhilarating” and “infuriating.”
“Every day I was a candidate for president, I knew that millions of people were counting on me. And I couldn’t bear the idea of letting them down,” she writes. “But I did. I couldn’t get the job done. And I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life.”
It has been known for a while that Hillary’s book would read exactly as these excerpts do, as a desperate testament to what went wrong. “What Happened” is set to be released Sep. 12. and is expected to cover former FBI director James Comey and the Russia probe.
Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) wishes she would just let it go.
“When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Schumer told The Washington Post. “So, what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump … and still believe that.”
