Whatever it was, top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin wanted nothing to do with a supporter who tried to give her a hug, shoving her aside and then giving what appeared to be a stern lecture.
Watch the awkward exchange below:
Via The Blaze:
When an unidentified woman attempted to give longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin a hug following Thursday’s Democratic debate, she received a firm push and a seemingly stern message.
The woman had just finished hugging and conversing with Clinton when she tried to show some affection to Abedin. The details are murky, but she clearly wasn’t interested in a hug at the moment.
It’s also not clear what exactly Abedin said to the woman, who appeared to be embarrassed, during their brief interaction.
It’s odd that somebody whom her boss clearly embraced and spoke with would be so roundly rejected by Abedin.
Headline Politics has obtained exclusive footage of various angles of the exchange between Abedin and the supporter, seen below.
We spoke with the woman afterwards and told her there was somebody who had actually reached out and wanted to offer her a hug to help make her feel better.
