Watching Hillary at a campaign event in Annandale, VA was cringe-inducing as she robotically clicked and whirred attempting to tell a joke.
Clinton tried to be funny as she referenced the popular game Pokémon Go, “I don’t know who created Pokémon Go, but I’m trying to figure out how to get them to have ‘Pokémon Go to the Polls’”.
Desperate to overcome her generation gap with millennials, she flailed trying to prove how hip she was by referencing the game and her campaign website is currently advertising a PokéStop in Lakewood, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, which plays host to the Republican National Convention next week.
For the uninitiated, Pokémon is an app on your Smartphone which alerts you to the location of unseen monsters. I presume Hillary’s PokéStop will reveal her as Snorlax, a Pokémon known for its massive structure or Bulbasaur a Pokémon with a short, blunt snout, red eyes, wide mouth and thick legs with sharp claws.
I don’t care how hard she tries to sway young voters, she will always be about as inspiring as a chaperone at a frat party. Bernie voters ain’t buying what Granny’s selling.
