Peter Certo: The Hidden Bombshell in the Comey-Trump Story

The hidden bombshell in the Comey Trump story

Comey, who wore a blue suit, tried to blend in with the blue curtains in the room, only to have to cross the room in front of a crowd to greet Trump, who went in for a hug after the Federal Bureau of Investigation director extended his hand.

Comey, who Wittes said "stood in the back, right in front of the drapes, hoping Trump wouldn't notice him camouflaged against the wall", went to shake Trump's hand.

Trump is known to make physical contact with those on stage with him during political events, and the Clinton campaign apparently had that in mind ahead of the 2016 presidential debates.

Reines tweeted a video of his "favorite moment from debate prep", featuring Hillary Clinton and a Trump stand-in.

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.

Clinton responded with a tweet of her own later in the day: "I burst out laughing when I saw this video this morning".

Comey took the long walk across the room determined, he told me, that there was not going to be a hug.

Her debate prep partner opens his arms to her, but the former Secretary of State grabs his hand and attempts to run away before he grabs her.

And the comparisons to Comey's non-hug with Trump in the Oval Office ring true, too.

"Not easy to avoid the unwanted Trump hug, sometimes it even takes practice", tweeted Reines on Friday, accompanied by a video. Bad enough that he was there; bad enough that there would be a handshake; he emphatically did not want any show of warmth.
