Philippe Reines, Hillary Clinton’s longtime adviser, appears to be trolling President Donald Trump following a New York Times report  that former FBI director James Comey once tried to blend into the curtains in the White House Blue Room in order to avoid a hug from the commander-in-chief.

Comey said he “pre-emptively reached out for a handshake and grabbed the president’s hand.” But it didn’t seem to work. In a sleight-of-hand trick, Trump pulled him into an embrace before he could do anything.

Perhaps Comey should have taken a cue from Clinton.

On  Friday, Reines tweeted a video of his “favorite moment from debate prep,” showing Clinton practicing her technique by greeting a Trump stand-in before a debate.

“Not easy to avoid the unwanted Trump hug, sometimes it even takes practice,” Reines tweeted.

Note: The end of this clip is — hands down — the best part.
