A former aide to Hillary Clinton tweeted a video of the Democratic nominee showing the Democratic nominee dodge a hug from him as he stood in for her opponent Donald Trump during her preparation for the first debate last year.
"Not easy to avoid the unwanted Trump hug, sometimes it even takes practice," Phillip Reines tweeted. "A favorite moment from debate prep (9/24/16)."

Trump never went in for the hug, but in light of Trump's remarks about groping women that would surface on a 2005 Access Hollywood recording two weeks later, the Clinton team was wise to be prepared.
