ST. LOUIS — Hillary Clinton’s campaign told reporters Sunday night that Donald Trump was “stalking” her around the debate floor.

“He couldn’t control himself and calmly sit down,” Fallon continued. “He was pacing the whole evening — even, at times, invoking the image of Rick Lazio invading her personal space. Sort of a ghoulish meandering around her when she was answering questions.”

Fallon also described Trump as “menacing.”

“I think he was the one who was rattled,” Fallon said.
