In the video, the model is shown visibly crying as Clinton waves goodbye to the crowd and departs the stage.
Teigen is an ardent supporter of Clinton’s and expressed her gratitude earlier Wednesday after the former presidential candidate shared Teigen’s emotional essay about losing a child on Medium.
“Thank you, @chrissyteigen, for your bravery and grace in starting a hard conversation to help other families heal alongside yours,” Clinton wrote alongside Teigen’s story about coping with the loss of her child.
“I’m so honored @hillaryclinton,” Teigen commented back. “You have dedicated your life to fighting for women’s and children’s health, so to have you share my piece about my experience means the absolute world to me. Wow. Wow.”

Teigen’s chummy interaction with Clinton comes a week before the presidential election, during which Clinton’s 2016 opponent President Trump fights for reelection against Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
Teigen has been vocal about her strong distaste for Trump throughout his presidency, at one point saying meeting him would cause her to “throw up in my mouth.”
In return, Trump expressed disfavor for Teigen and her husband John Legend, referring to him as “boring” as her as his “filthy mouthed wife.”
“Those two things are true,” Teigen later joked while on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” “John is boring and I do have a filthy mouth.”
