Hillary Deletes Photo of Handshake With Potential Voter, Possibly After Noticing His Tattoo
Hillary Clinton walked in a New Hampshire Independence Day parade on July 3, briefly speaking with potential voters and taking pictures as she shook their hands. On Tuesday, Clinton removed one of the pictures she posted on her Twitter profile, but not before it was retweeted and attention was drawn to the fact that the man she was shaking hands with had an odious tattoo on his arm.
Clinton reportedly met the unnamed man outside of an ice cream parlor, after which she posted the picture she took with him along with a message about generosity and community togetherness.
It was not long afterwards that a reporter from Baltimore pointed out the tattoo:

Soon, Clinton’s photo saw numerous retweets after viewers realized that the man’s tattoo spells out “WHITE”:

Many have been quick to conclude that the man is a white supremacist, but others have urged not to leap to conclusions, some noting that the area in which Clinton was parading was known for the White Mountain mountain range.
