When it comes to vying for the U.S. presidency in the modern era, selfies are more powerful than speeches. Hence why practically every GOP candidate has already made sharable content with the likes of BuzzFeed and IJReview, and why Hillary Clinton posed for a selfie with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
There’s a number of reactions you might be having to this:
- Your lede’s opening is wrong, wrongity wrong-wrong. Speeches are WAY more important.
- This is a terrible photo. Two of the three people pictured are cropped out.
- What’s a selfie?
- Hillary looks weird. Why does Hillary look weird?
- Who the f*ck are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? Are they running, too?
Kardashian and West attended a fundraiser on Thursday night in Los Angeles to support Clinton’s 2016 campaign. After Hillary’s speech and the evening’s main programming, she spent some time with the reality star and her famous rapper husband.
Basically, Fox News has Kim to thank for their latest round of non-debate talking points.
