Hillary Clinton's Debate-Winning Shoulder Shimmy Is The New ‘Bye Felicia'

Donald Trump wants you to know that he has a great temperament.

And if you don't believe him on that, he will continue to yell it at you over and over again. That's just how good of a temperament he has.

During the first presidential debate on Monday night, moderator Lester Holt asked Trump why his judgment is better than Hillary Clinton's judgment.

Holt was specifically referring to how Trump supported the Iraq War. This is a recorded fact: Trump supported the Iraq War.

Trump went on a rant about how this is a lie from the mainstream media. He then started insisting that his judgment is better because he says it's better.

Then, mid-rant, he started talking about how good his temperament is.

Trump said, unprompted,

I think my strongest asset, maybe by far, is my temperament. I have a winning temperament. I know how to win.

To which Clinton sat quietly and listened, like so:

Holt tried to jump in and re-ask his question, and Trump interrupted with a “WAIT!”

Trump turned to Clinton, asking about some situation, saying,

You were totally out of control! I said, ‘There's a person with a temperament that's got a problem.'

Clinton just sat calmly, breaking into smiles every so often, as Trump had a tantrum about how good his temperament is, especially compared to her temperament.

Finally, Trump stopped talking. Holt prompted for Clinton to respond.

Clinton said,

Whew, OK!

The audience had been asked to not react or make noises during the debate but, like they did many times throughout the 90 minutes, they broke into laughter.

As they laughed, Clinton did a lil' shimmy:

And, of course, the internet lost it.

This was just one of Clinton's many gif-worthy reactions throughout the first presidential debate.

She pulled off some serious Jim Halpert-level shade in her reactions to Trump, emphasized by a feed of the debate that continuously showed both candidates.

How's that for temperament?
