Hillary Clinton has largely stayed out of the public eye since losing the election to Donald Trump earlier this month, but on Tuesday night the former Democratic nominee made a surprise appearance at UNICEF’s Snowflake Ball, where she presented an award to Katy Perry and received several ovations from the supportive crowd. Perry, who had been an active campaigner for Clinton was the honoree at the gala, received the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award for her charitable work for the organization. Clinton praised the singer for having “the spirit and the energy and the compassion that Audrey Hepburn brought to her work from UNICEF,” and drew cheers from the audience when she added in that Perry’s lyrics “remind us when you get knocked down to get back up.” She even got in a little dig at Trump’s expense when she noted that Perry had the most Twitter followers but “might have some competition” in that area.
This was only the second time Clinton has appeared in public since her concession speech, although she seems to be enjoying some downtime. Several people have spotted her hiking through the woods near her home in Westchester county — and they have been able to strike up a conversation or take a selfie with the former secretary of state on one of her excursions, leading others to joke about her being “the new Bigfoot” or some type of majestic woodland creature.
