Description

On the March 4 edition of Fox News' America's Newsroom, while discussing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton drinking a beer on the campaign plane, co-host Bill Hemmer asked Fox News' "body language expert" Tonya Reiman: "[I]s that an honest moment, a moment of levity?" Reiman replied: "You know, the only thing that struck me as odd is, she's holding the beer with her left hand and she's a righty. And if you think about how you would normally take a sip, it's a little bit awkward to drink with your nondominant hand, unless you have a reason to be doing that." Hemmer then asked: "Well, what would that reason be, then?" Reiman answered: "It could be anything. Maybe she's really just holding that cup to hold that cup, you know. Maybe she wants to give the appearance of being light and easy."
