Hillary Clinton takes aim at Trump as she reveals her favourite meme

Memes seem to be taking over the world, and now even Hillary Clinton has shared her favourite.

The former presidential candidate, who is the most voted for woman in US political history, was speaking for the first time since she lost the 2016 election.

In an interview at the Women in the World Summit with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, Clinton said one viral image had really caught here eye.

The former Secretary of State told the summit that it was a group of dogs sitting around a table at a board meeting that really got her.

“There is that classic picture of all of the men sitting around, deciding how they were going to defund Planned Parenthood and maternity care, and access to insurance for family planning and contraception,” she told the audience.

“Looking at that picture, you just think it has got to be from a skit on Saturday Night Live.

“It can’t possibly be true … My favourite GIF (aka meme) on the internet was showing the dogs sitting around the table, and the caption was, ‘Now we will discuss feline health.’”

President Trump met with the 30 men, all Republicans from the House Freedom Caucus, to discuss his plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which subsequantly failed.
Women’s health charity Planned Parenthood pointed out this anomaly, writing on the social network: “Here’s the picture of the leaders negotiating away birth control, maternity care and abortion. Notice anything?”

Asked how she was coping since the defeat, Clinton, who received more votes than Presidet Trump, said the initial news had been a shock, but she was now getting on with life.

“I am doing pretty well, all things considered,” she told the audience.

“The aftermath of the election was so devastating.

“Everything that has come to light in the days and weeks since have been all so troubling.

“I just had to make up my mind that yes, I was going to get out bed, and yes, I was going to go out for long walks in the woods, and spend time with my family.

“As a person, I’m OK,” she assured the crowd, before adding: “As an American, I’m pretty worried.”
