Video shows Hillary Clinton practiced avoiding Trump hug

Trump allegedly asked former FBI director James Comey to stop an investigation into links between former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Russian Federation, according to a New York Times story based on reports of a memo written by Comey.

Earlier today, we reported on the revelation that former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and Donald Trump's awkward post-election bro-hug was a result of Comey's reticence toward being seen embracing the man he was thought to have helped elect.

After Clinton and "Trump" walk on stage, Reines stretches out his arms as if expecting his "opponent" to reciprocate.

A former Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonDem frustration grows with Rosenstein Clinton aide releases debate prep footage Russian government promotes conspiracy surrounding murdered DNC staffer MORE aide who played President Trump in Clinton's debate prep on Friday released footage from a lighter moment during a prep session. As Mashable reports, the behind-the-scenes footage was shared by Clinton's friend Philippe Reines, who also happens to be the one playing Trump in the hilarious video.

Anyway, it's nice to see Clinton and Reines taking a moment to laugh and enjoy themselves, instead of, say, campaigning in Wisconsin. Clinton dodges the hug and Reines chases her around and tries to maul her like a hungry bear.

Reines' tweet appears to be a response to the Times' Comey story.

In the world of American politics, high-level operators have a concern you may have never even considered: a hug from Donald Trump. It was bad enough there was going to be a handshake.

Comey said he "pre-emptively reached out for a handshake and grabbed the president's hand".

President Trump shook hands with FBI Director James B. Comey during a law enforcement reception at the White House on January 22.

It turns out that Hillary Clinton, too, was prepared to avoid a Trump hug.
