An excerpt of an interview with Hillary Clinton in Kyrgyzstan is generating major buzz over her response to a moderator’s question about – what else – her fashion sense.
Here’s the transcript of the exchange …
MODERATOR 1: OK. Which designers do you prefer?
CLINTON: What designers of clothes?
MODERATOR 1: Yes.
CLINTON: Would you ever ask a man that question? (Laughter.) (Applause.)
MODERATOR 1: Probably not. Probably not. (Applause.)
Owned. The exchange, posted on Tuesday by Boston Review, has been shared thousands of times online, even though it actually took place back in 2010.
Clinton’s awesome response has garnered widespread praise among women, though to be fair, 99 percent of the town hall-style interview was focused on the ever-turbulent global political and socioeconomic climate, foreign and domestic policy.
Nevertheless, we wouldn’t recommend asking such trivial questions, future moderators. Have you seen the texts from Hillary Clinton? She runs the world.
Chelsea Clinton in Vogue? More topical, but probably still out of bounds.
