The Democratic nominee, who is 5-foot-4, has apparently enlisted the help of a raised podium for the first presidential debate against Donald Trump, who is 6-foot-3, Monday night, photos of the two podiums show.
According to WABC’s Rita Cosby, one of the two podiums inside the debate hall at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, N.Y., is larger than the other.
It is believed that the larger one was built at Clinton’s request to make her appear taller than she is.
“Clinton is 5’4" and Trump 6’2" and her team wanted the podium modified or a box added so she won’t look short next to Trump,” Cosby said in an email.
I don’t ever remember that happening before.
Although I would think the larger one would be for Trump who would look to be the same proportion to the podium as Clinton to hers.
In any case I think it is silly. You are who you are.
