From the files of What A Time To Be Alive: Barack Obama formally endorsed Hillary Clinton for president on Thursday afternoon, prompting this response from presumed Republican candidate Donald Trump.
“Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama — but nobody else does!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
To which Clinton’s Twitter handle replied: “Delete your account.”
Reaction online was predictably enthusiastic.
Last year, Katie Dowd, then Clinton’s digital director, told MSNBC the campaign’s goal as a digital team “is to continue creating new and innovative ways for people to own a piece of this campaign — to make this their campaign and to empower them through any piece of technology in their hand to be a fundraiser, a storyteller, an organizer and a voter. That’s why digital is so important. I believe we have a special opportunity to invite people into this process of helping campaign and elect Hillary — and we’ll have a lot of fun along the way doing it.”
Back in April, BuzzFeed reported Dowd shifted to a senior advisor role for the campaign with an eye “on building the social media presence” for Clinton in larger ways.
