In debate prep footage recorded in September, Reines played the role of Trump as the handsy creep going in for the hug when the two candidates traditionally would shake hands.
Philippe Reines, Hillary Clinton's longtime adviser, appears to be trolling President Donald Trump following a New York Times report that former Federal Bureau of Investigation 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.

David de Gea is the first choice, while Sergio Romero has been promised he will keep his position in the Europa League final against Ajax Amsterdam later this month.
Philippe Reins, a political consultant who once served as a senior adviser to Hillary Clinton during her tenure as secretary of state, has posted a video showing how Clinton worked to avoid unwanted Trump hugs during her debate preparations. "A favorite moment from debate prep (9/24/16)".
"I think everyone can understand why she was not eager to find herself in his embrace", Clinton's campaign communications chief, Jennifer Palmieri, told CNBC.
Saudi says Trump visit to bolster security, trade ties
Talks between Israel and the Palestinians have stalled in recent years - the most recent round fell apart in April 2014. Secretary of Defense James Mattis will accompany Trump for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting and dinner.
Clinton dodges the hug and Reines chases her around and tries to maul her like a hungry bear.
Reines' tweet appears to be a response to the Times' Comey story. Comey described really not wanting to go to that meeting, for the same reason he later did not want to go to the private dinner with Trump: the Federal Bureau of Investigation director should be always at arm's length from the President, in his view. It was bad enough there was going to be a handshake.

Just past the halfway stage of the league season, KKR held the top position in the table with seven wins from nine matches . Gautam Gambhir demonstrated as much with his unbeaten 19-ball 32, which helped Knight Riders home with four balls to spare.
Comey's efforts failed when Trump finally noticed him and pulled him in for an uncomfortable embrace. "If you look at the video, it's one person shaking hands and another hugging".
