Most young children understand the basic concept of a Venn diagram: a group with one characteristic in circle, a group with another characteristic in the other circle, and a group with both characteristics in the overlapping area of the circles.
Hillary Clinton, however, is not "most young children," and tweeted out this indecipherable mess of a graphic earlier today:
Dear Congress,— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) May 20, 2016

That...is not how those work.
Predictably, the internet had a ball laughing at this incredibly odd error:
I want a Venn diagram showing the overlap of people who understand Venn diagrams and people who make Venn diagrams. https://t.co/3IGkoyiwMp— Josh Greenman (@joshgreenman) May 20, 2016
"Let's do a Venn diagram! It's this nifty thing I saw on Facebook. It just means you write things inside circles." https://t.co/shKLKuTjP9— Jesse Walker (@notjessewalker) May 20, 2016
This might be the worst attempted Venn diagram in the history of all of the awful attempts at Venn diagrams. https://t.co/s7rM73RhF8— Chris Geidner (@chrisgeidner) May 20, 2016
