‘Back Up, You Creep!’

'Back Up, You Creep!'

Hillary Clinton’s book about the 2016 election, What Happened, will be released on September 12th, but excerpts from the audio book have emerged, none more interesting than her reflection on the October 9th debate in St. Louis when Donald Trump followed her around around the stage, looming over her:

“It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled.”

“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.’ “


“Clinton wanted to say ‘back up, you creep’ to Trump at debate,” Robin Eberhardt, The Hill

“Hillary Clinton calls Donald Trump a ‘creep,’ says her ‘skin crawled’ during debate,” Cleve R. Wootson Jr. and Amy B Wang, Washington Post

“Hillary Clinton: My “skin crawled” when Trump stood behind me,” Shane Savitsky, Axios
