‘Texts From Hillary’ Imagines Clinton’s Correspondences

Have you gotten a text from Hillary?

It’s unlikely that any of us will get a text from Secretary of State Clinton– a new website will have to do.

It’s called “Texts From Hillary,” and it was inspired by a photo of Clinton in sunglasses texting.

The site creators are asking, what do you thinks she’s saying? And it imagines conversations with everyone from President Obama to Jon Stewart.

In one parody, there’s a photo of President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden looking at a mobile device. They’re imagined saying “She’s going to love the new Justin Bieber video!”

“Back to work Boys,” is the Clinton parody response.
