Hillary Clinton announced in a YouTube clip released Sunday that she’s running for president in 2016.
The plan was to launch right on social media to dominate the platform where the young voters live.
It didn’t quite work out, to say the least.
Shortly after the announcement, CNN anchor Brian Stelter tweeted:
15 minutes into Clinton campaign launch — only U.S. Twitter trend higher than "Hillary Clinton" is "#WhyImNotVotingForHillary"
— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) April 12, 2015
And it got worse. 2 hours later the most popular hashtags on Twitter were #WhyImNotVotingForHillary — which mocked her campaign ad — and #GameofThrones, with #Hillary2016 an embarrassing 3rd.
And a CNN contributor later claimed that the #Hillary2016 hashtag only appeared on the list after her the panicking campaign consultants spending megabucks to make it trend. And they still couldn’t top the anti-Hillary topic.
Sounds a lot like 2007, when the heir-apparent Hillary assumed she could just breeze into the White House, but it did not exactly go as planned.
In case you haven’t seen her cringeworthy announcement video, here it is:
“The deck is still stacked for those who sit at the top,” says the woman who is worth billions thanks to huge donations from oppressive regimes to her family’s foundation.
