Watch Hillary Clinton Practice Ducking 'Unwanted Trump Hug' During Debate Prep

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.

Apparently, James Comey is not the only one who wanted to avoid any awkward hugs with Donald Trump. But he wanted to approximate his physicality so that Clinton would grow accustomed to Trump's looming presence when she saw Reines in her peripheral vision. Interestingly enough, Reines portrayed Trump as grabby prior to the release of the "Access Hollywood" tape. Clinton was practicing her technique of greeting her opponent before a debate. "A favourite moment from debate prep".

After Trump's win, it was revealed that Reines had the honor of playing him in debate prep, a duty that he took so seriously he stopped taking his meds.

The Trump stand-in who helped prep Hillary Clinton for the 2016 debates shared a short video clip Friday of the former Democratic presidential candidate practicing ways to gracefully avoid an embrace.

In that article, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's friend Benjamin Wittes relayed, "Comey said that as he was walking across the room he was determined that there wasn't going to be a hug".

In response to that disclosure, Trump at the time said, "This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago".

CORRECTION: This story was updated to reflect that the handshake between Trump and Comey occurred in the Blue Room of the White House. "Trump grabs the hand and kind of pulls him into the hug, but the hug is entirely one-sided". And when you're a star, they let you do it.
