(Newser) – Two days after the election upset that shocked America, President-elect Donald Trump met with President Obama at the White House—and Hillary Clinton went on a walk in the woods with her dog and her husband. Clinton supporter Margot Gerster, feeling "heartbroken" after her candidate was defeated at the polls, decided to go on a walk in Chappaqua, New York, she wrote on Facebook Thursday. "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," continues Gerster, who shared a photo of the encounter that has since been "liked" more than 32,000 times. Mashable notes that in the comments under the post, Gerster added that Bill Clinton took the photo, though Secret Service also accompanied the couple on their walk.
