  • Worth the click: Philippe Reines, the longtime Hillary confidant who played Donald Trump in debate prep, tweets this priceless video: "Not easy to avoid the unwanted Trump hug, sometimes it even takes practice... A favorite moment from debate prep (9/24/16)."
  • Go deeper ... Philippe talks to MSNBC's Ari Melber.
