Hillary Clinton Talks Debate Drama During 'Ellen' Interview!

Hillary Clinton has given her first interview since the second presidential debate during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, which is airing on Friday (October 14).

The Democratic presidential nominee opened up about her famous shimmy, the debate drama with Donald Trump, battling through pneumonia, and Michelle Obama‘s inspiring speech this week.

“First, it was clear that my opponent, Donald Trump, was going to try to dominate the space almost to the exclusion of the people who were sitting there,” Hillary said. “I mean, they were sitting there so that we could talk to them and that they could ask questions we would then answer. And because of the revelation of the public video and everything that came out on Access Hollywood he was really all wrought up and you could just sense how much anger he had. And, so he was really trying to dominate and then literally stalk me around the stage and I would just feel this presence behind me and I thought whoa this is really weird so I was just trying to stay focused. Trying to keep my composure, trying to interact with the moderators, but really for me, more with the people there and deal with the string of accusations that he was putting forth And it’s frustrating. I feel such a sense of obligation to people that I work at trying to make sure what I’m saying is appropriate, is accurate, conveying that to people.”

    She handled herself much better than I would; a kick to the groin for starters. POS.

    “Dominate the space” – well when she wanders over to his side of the stage and the camera has him in the background by HIS podium…of course it is going to look like he is dominating the space. When he is so much larger than she is…at least in height…he is going to appear to dominate. And, so he paced. So what? It is a method used by many people to think, keep their cool, calm themselves, etc. Of course, she couldn’t really do that very much since she needed to make sure she had something to hold onto in case she felt weak.

    She is stupid for this interview. She looked intimidated and at one point I thought she was going to cry. I feel that she is more qualified to be president, but he is more confident, and strong. He can think on the fly, while everything she said was rehearsed. You cant rehearse for a person who can think on the fly. I was disappointing in how she did in the debate

  • Cruizin1960

    I don’t necessarily believe that she is more qualified. Her qualifications are merely time spent as part of the political elite. She knows how to play the game. If voters wanted the game to continue…more gridlock, more corruption, less doing the work of the people who are paying the taxes, she is not the one with the qualifications to change that. She knows people. but they are the same people who have brought us to this point. No new ideas…more taxes (not just income)…the threat to our 1st and 2nd Amendment…the threat to our men and women in blue…I could go on and on.
