CHAPPAQUA, New York -- A woman out for a hike ran into Hillary Clinton.
According to her Facebook post, Margot Gerster decided to go hiking near Chappaqua, N.Y., with her daughters because she was "feeling so heartbroken since yesterday's election." She heard rustling among the leaves and, "as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs doing exactly the same thing as I was." They hugged, exchanged pleasantries and then went their separate ways.
Here is Gerster's Facebook post in full:
Ive been feeling so heartbroken since yesterday's election and decided what better way to relax than take my girls hiking. So I decided to take them to one of favorite places in Chappaqua. We were the only ones there and it was so beautiful and relaxing. As we were leaving, I heard a bit of rustling coming towards me and as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs doing exactly the same thing as I was. I got to hug her and talk to her and tell her that one of my most proudest moments as a mother was taking Phoebe with me to vote for her. She hugged me and thanked me and we exchanged some sweet pleasantries and then I let them continue their walk. Now, I'm not one for signs but I think ill definitely take this one. So proud. #iamstillwithher #lovetrumpshate #keepfighting #lightfollowsdarkness
