It looks like Hillary Clinton did not manage her body language very well at the Presidential inauguration on Friday and experts were able to tell that she is still “bitter” over Trump’s victory.
A body language expert analyzed the pictures captured at the event and explained that Clinton was just “going through the motions” at the inauguration. “This was clearly a hard day for Hillary,” expert Lillian Glass stated. “And it showed in both in her facial language and body language.”
“When we first see Bill and Hillary waiting for their turn to enter the stage, Hillary looks tense and there is a lot of upset in her facial expression,” Glass explained. “There is a great deal of tension around her mouth. Bill does not look happy in these photos either. He also does not seem to be connected to Hillary.”
As the Clintons prepare to watch the swear-in, they still look like “bitter enemies” rather than happy guests.
“Hillary is biting her lip in an effort to contain herself before she walks on to the stage,” Glass went on.
As for Bill, “he looks very sad. Hillary tries to smile but it looks phony and contrived as she forces herself to do so.”
“She immediately goes back to her tense and upset serious facial expression,” Glass added.
“Hillary and Bill look down as they brace themselves to go on stage while Bill looks visibly sad.”
There were also a few moments of genuine excitement, thinks Glass.
“Hillary looks genuinely happy to see people she knows, as the apples of her cheeks are raised and her eyes twinkle and her mouth is open.”
However, it doesn’t take too much until she’s back to her original mood.
“While onstage Hillary is tense as you can see in her posture. There is a lot of tension around her lips and mouth.”
The humiliation of losing the office and needing to attend the swear-in of your opponent sets in.
“While Hillary and Bill are smiling there are not true happy smiles,” explains Glass.
“They are tense smiles as they go through the motions.”
“When Michelle approaches she looks very happy and is genuinely pleased to see her,” claims Glass.
However, after the Obamas pass by, “she immediately gets tense again facially and has a sour look on her face”
