Stephen Colbert Mercilessly Mocks Hillary for Marketing on AOL


Hillary Clinton
may be losing the support of the under-30 set to Bernie Sanders, but she has a plan to get young voters back on her side — by campaigning on a platform that’s about as old as they are.

As explained by Stephen Colbert on his show Monday night, Clinton’s campaign is reaching out “with an ad on the youth-friendly social network, America Online.”

“Her new campaign slogan,” Colbert explained, is the series of screeches, beeps, and boops familiar to anyone to remembers what dial-up sounds like.

“AOL is where all the cool teens go,” Colbert quipped. “They go there to update their Geocities page.”

Clinton still playing catch-up with Internet culture is nothing new: Last week, the candidate indicated that she still didn’t know what “going viral” meant.
