When Hillary Clinton said she was "ready to come out of the woods," she meant it. Clinton has been working the news-show circuit, promoting her new memoir, and speaking up more on Twitter. She's even gotten her sense of humor back, making a snarky tweet over the weekend about the one-year anniversary of the James Comey letter she says helped derail her presidential run—and now hinting at what her Halloween costume might be.

Per the Hill, when Clinton was asked about her holiday plans Monday night at a Chicago event for her What Happened book, she deadpanned: "I'll maybe come as the president." The Chicago Tribune notes it's not clear if she meant she'd dress up as Trump or as herself if she were president, but either way, her comment drew chuckles and applause from the audience of 4,000.
