WATCH: Hillary Clinton Composes Herself Prior to Walking Onstage at Trump’s Inauguration
One of the more interesting subplots of today’s inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States was the fact that his vanquished opponent shared the stage with him, especially considering that the candidate wasn’t a sitting President.
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton attended the inauguration not only as a former Senator and Secretary of State, but also as an ex-First Lady. Along with other former presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter, her husband Bill Clinton was present, and she appeared alongside him (George H.W. Bush was unable to attend due to his frail health.)
While she and Bill were awaiting their turn to take the stage, cameras caught her taken a moment to herself to attempt to compose herself before appearing before the public.
Check the video out above to see her wrestle with her emotions before walking out.
