Dozens of women turn their backs on Hillary Clinton in this viral photo
As Hillary Clinton waves to a crowd of 500, barely anyone is facing her. Instead, most of them have their backs turned as they attempt to take a selfie with the Democratic presidential candidate.
Now the photograph went viral on social networks.
Barbara Kinney, Clinton’s official campaign photographer, was following the candidate as she greeted people in the overflow room at an event in Orlando on Sept. 21.
“There were 500 people that couldn’t fit in the main event so she went and visited them in an adjacent room afterwards,” a spokesman for Clinton’s campaign says. That’s when Clinton suggested that they take a group selfie, posing for the crowd as they all aimed for the perfect selfie. “It was pretty amazing to be there and capture it,” says Kinney.
