Hillary Clinton Joins Instagram, Posts Picture of Pantsuits

Hillary Clinton has joined Instagram ahead of her 2016 campaign for president. Her first post was a patriotic display of pantsuits. Her bio labels herself as a "Doting grandmother, among other things."

Hard choices.

In the two hours after she created her account, Clinton had gained 15,000 followers. Some of their comments on her picture ranged from "YAAS QUEEN" to "Go away!"

Clinton's fellow Democrat candidates are also on Instgram, with followings that eerily resemble their polling numbers. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has been on Instagram for two weeks, and has made 11 posts, and Lincoln Chafee has made 10 posts in the week he has been a user of the platform. Sanders has roughly half the number of followers Clinton, and Chafee currently has 79 followers. Former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley has had an Instagram account for nearly two years, but has only 1,451 followers.
