Watch: Hillary Clinton Shimmy at Presidential Debate Goes on a Few Seconds Too Long

Hillary Clinton sought a humanizing moment at Monday’s presidential debate when she wiggled and giggled at an accusation from her rival Donald Trump — but she may have taken the gesture a little too far.

After Trump cited a video message of Clinton bizarrely shouting at union laborers, moderator Lester Holt asked her to respond. The transcript of this exchange reads:

TRUMP: Wait. The AFL-CIO the other day, behind the blue screen — I don’t know who you were talking to, Secretary Clinton, but you were totally out of control. I said, there’s a person with a temperament that’s got a problem.

HOLT: Secretary Clinton?

CLINTON: Whoo! Okay.

But the delivery is something that needs to be seen. Clinton’s exclamation and wriggle last about five seconds, getting awkward toward the end:

USA Today‘s Josh Hafner writes that he counts Clinton “shaking her shoulders as many as 10 times.” [Did I mention this election has prompted some of the weirdest news coverage in history?]

Clinton’s campaign was proud enough of the maneuver that her social media team shared a gif of it — though they edited it to run much shorter than the actual video.

Predictably, the clickbait world is cheering her.

Mashable…
