Hillary Clinton: Donald Trump ‘Literally’ Stalked Me During Debate Because of ‘Anger’ Over Leaked Tape

Hillary Clinton stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the second presidential debate, her signature shimmy dance move and more in an episode that will air on Friday, October 14.

The Democratic presidential nominee, 68, discussed her rival Donald Trump’s looming presence on the stage during the debate on Sunday, October 9. “Because of the revelation of the public video, and everything that came out on Access Hollywood, you know, he was really all wrought up, and you could just sense how much anger he had,” Clinton said, referring to the recently surfaced video of Trump bragging about groping women to Billy Bush. “He was really trying to dominate and then literally stalk me around the stage.”

The former secretary of state said that she just tried to stay focused and keep her composure. “I would just feel this presence behind me, and you know, I thought, ‘Whoa, this is really weird,’” she said.

On the other hand, Trump, 70, has denied that he encroached on his opponent’s space at all during the debate. “She came into my territory,” he told Bill O’Reilly. “I was standing at my lectern and all of a sudden, from nowhere, she walks right in front of me. The next day it was I was in her space.”

Clinton also discussed her dance move from the first presidential debate during her Ellen appearance. The Democratic candidate smiled and shook her shoulders before beginning an answer, and the moment quickly went viral. “Does everyone do that to you now?” DeGeneres asked. “Yeah, I like it,” the former first lady replied. “I knew that I said, ‘Woo!’ I knew that, but I didn’t know that I did the little shimmy to go along with it. And then afterward I saw it and now people are always saying, ‘Do the shimmy, do the shimmy.’”

The Oval Office hopeful revealed her birthday wish for her upcoming 69th birthday on October 26. “I have several wishes, one of them obviously includes the election, but I really wish that I will be the president that our country needs right now. … Just think of it this way, I will be the youngest woman ever elected President of the United States,” she quipped.
