QOTD: Things We Wish Hillary Had Said

From Hillary Clinton, in her new book, "What Happened," an excerpt describing the uncomfortable feeling as unstable sexual predator Donald "Rump" Trump hovered behind her during the October 9, 2016 second Presidential debate:
"It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, 'Well, what would you do?' Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren't repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly, 'Back up you creep, get away from me! I know you love to intimidate women, but you can't intimidate me, so back up.'" (emphasis added)
Instead she kept her cool while the hulking figure of a slothful, narcissistic sociopath loomed behind her, frowning in displeasure that he was being bested by a woman, and that he couldn't just be handed the Presidency, as he was handed so much in life.

And if she did call him off for being a lumbering goon, the media would, insinuating she's a bitch, be all over it with, "She needs to pull in those fangs a bit."

Diva - Agree. It was already in the Beltway media narrative that she was "strident," or less politely, "a bitch." So, much as we wish she had put him in his place, she was in a no-win situation.
