Hillary on Debate Prep: ‘The Young Man Who Played Trump Practiced Stalking Me’

‘— Stalking me and saying really nasty things to me because I wanted to keep my composure’

EXCERPT:

CLINTON: “So, you know, we practice this. I was very committed to prepare for the debates. So we practiced because I thought they would be a big deal. I’m glad that most people thought I won all three of them because that to me was a big deal. I did it with the kind of commitment to really being prepared. And we practiced — the young man who played Trump practiced stalking me.”
HAINES: "Really?”
CLINTON: “Oh, yes. Stalking me and saying really nasty things to me because I wanted to keep my composure. At the end of the day I thought people were going to say, 'Okay, this is a big job. It’s a really serious, hard job. Let’s go with the person who was the adult in the room.' I was hoping that would be me. So, I practiced all of that. And then, though, when I was actually on stage, it felt so different. That’s when I was thinking, 'Okay, what do I do?'”
