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.
