And Now Here’s the Guy Who Played Donald Trump in Hillary Clinton’s Mock Debates
Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon started off Monday night’s debate by thanking the man who’s been helping the former Secretary of State prepare for her showdown with Donald Trump by impersonating the brash billionaire.
Longtime aide Philippe Reines, who Clinton once described “passionate, loyal, and shrewd,” according to the New York Times, has spent his career in Washington building up the former First Lady. But for the last few days, his job has partly been to tear her down by mimicking Trump’s trademark unpredictability, insults, and all the other tactics he displayed during the Republican primary debates.
About an hour before the debate, Fallon credited Reines with getting Clinton ready for Trump.
“There are multiple Trumps. But only one Philippe,” Fallon tweeted.
