Bizarre Video Shows Clinton Practicing Dodging Trump Hug During Debate Prep

Published

on

A former staffer on the Hillary Clinton campaign has published a strange video of him and the candidate practicing how she would dodge a hug from Donald Trump during debate prep.

Philippe Reines, 46, posted the video, which he dated as being taken on September 24, to Twitter on Friday. It shows him and the candidate walking out to applause from fellow staffers while preparing for the first presidential debate at Hofstra University on September 26.

Clinton herself retweeted the video, saying she “burst out laughing” when she saw it. “Hope it brightens your day,” the failed candidate added.

The petty video shows the two seemingly joking and play wrestling, but it also a bit pathetic.

The two candidates ended up shaking hands normally during the debate at Hofstra, but as the campaigns grew more scorched earth, they skipped the gesture entirely during the second one.

In an interview with Politico in January, Reines described his methods of debate prep during the campaign.

The article states:

Reines purchased four podiums on Amazon, two for his home and two for the secret office the Clinton campaign lent him at the PerkinsCoie law firm in Washington, D.C. He searched eBay for a 2005 Donald J. Trump signature collection watch, which he purchased for $175. He experimented with a self-tanning lotion on his face. Before prep sessions, Reines began suiting up with velcro knee pads (to keep his legs straight), a posture enhancer (to keep his arms back), and dress shoes with three-inch lifts (to match Trump’s 6-foot-1-inch frame). His longtime tailor fit him for a loose-fitting suit with large cuffs. His goal was not a ‘Saturday Night Live’-style caricature of Trump, so he didn’t try to replicate Trump’s famous mane. 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.”

Weird.

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax

Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.

Published

on

Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.

Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.

But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.

“The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”

A statement from Smollett’s lawyers in light of the new criminal charges goes to show the former Empire actor isn’t thrilled that he’s going back to court to face accountability for his dishonest publicity stunt.

Smollett is set to appear in a Cook County courthouse on February 24th.
