Hillary Clinton might still be trying to figure out how to delete emails from a public server, but she is getting up to speed on social media.
Two months after Hillary Clinton announced her bid for the White House, the Democratic presidential candidate has joined Instagram.
She posted a photo that is easily identifiable as Hillary Clinton-like: a row of red, white, and blue pantsuits.
The 67-year-old former First Lady, U.S. Senator and Secretary of State captioned the pic, “Hard choices," a spin on her 2014 memoir of the same name.
The picture serves as a funny way to launch her Instagram profile. Rhetorically, it makes her appear likeable, humorous, and well, human.
But the media and critics are hyper vigilant when it comes to women in politics, constantly honing in on their appearance.
If Hillary wants to make a change, she needs to be the change. There’s more to her politics and her campaign than pantsuits.
Other presidential candidates have been making appearances on Instagram, including Bernie Sanders, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio.
None of their feeds feature their fashion choices.
On the flip side, within two hours of her first post, more than 19,000 users began following her. Not Caitlyn Jenner numbers, but not bad.
