Hillary Clinton wishes she could have told Trump to ‘shut up’ during 2016 debates

Hillary Clinton admitted Tuesday night that she wanted to tell President Trump to “shut up” during their debates, too.

The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate responded, “You have no idea” when a Twitter user suggested Clinton would have liked to snap “shut up, man!,” as Joe Biden did on Tuesday during his first debate with Trump.

“’Will you shut up, man’ is the line of the night. I feel so sorry for Hillary right now because I’m positive she wanted to say that and couldn’t,” tweeted feminist author Jill Filipovic.

Clinton, who ran against Trump in 2016 and debated him, replied: “You have no idea.”

The outburst from Biden came during the opening 20 minutes of his first showdown with the president in Cleveland after he was asked whether he would support adding justices to the court if Trump’s conservative pick Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed to replace liberal icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

When Biden didn’t answer the question, Trump pushed the former vice president saying: “Are you going to pack the court? Are you going to pack the court? He doesn’t want to answer.”

“I’m not going to answer the question, because the question is, the question is, the question is —” Biden said, as Trump continued to press him to answer.

“Will you shut up, man?” Biden eventually snapped.

The exchange ended with Wallace moving on to a new topic, as Biden told him they hadn’t achieved anything.

“That was a really productive segment. Keep yappin’, man,” Biden said in a departing shot.
