Hillary Clinton Posts ‘Inspiring’ Image of Female Baker… Who Supports Bernie Sanders
While campaigning in Michigan Tuesday, Hillary Clinton posted an Instagram picture of her and a female baker, who turned out to actually be a supporter of Bernie Sanders.
“Inspired by the women who started @AvalonBakery,” the Democratic frontrunner posted. “Highly recommend the coffee, too.”
However, the woman in the image quickly chimed in. “That’s me and I’m voting Bernie,” she wrote. “I’d like it if you took the pic down.”
After her remarks were shared on Reddit’s pro-Bernie subreddit, Clinton changed the text of the Instagram post to allude to a completely different bakery. “Highly recommend the coffee at Astro,” it now reads. The geotag on the post was also changed from Avalon Bakery to simply Detroit, Michigan.
