Hillary Clinton gets patriotic, sartorial in Instagram debut

The Democratic frontrunner posted her first picture to Instagram on Wednesday morning, quickly receiving 3,000-plus likes.

A photo of a rack of red, white, and blue suits notched more than 1,300 likes on Instagram in an hour on Wednesday.

Seems impressive enough, but the self-described "doting grandmother" who posted the ‘gram has an advantage: she’s also running for president. So, people know her.

Hard choices.

Hillary Clinton joined Instagram on Wednesday, describing herself simply as a "doting grandmother, among other things" either in an effort to remain modest or pull off an impressive humblebrag.

Similarly, the description of President Barack Obama on his @POTUS account on Twitter starts with "dad."  

Clinton captioned the photo "Hard choices," which is also the title of her most recent book. It likely received as many groans as it did LOLs (#GrandmotherJokes, right?). Business Insider called the photo "self-aware."

She’s not following anyone yet, and it’s unclear whether the former first lady and secretary of state will post photos herself. Here’s hoping whoever handles the account knows not to read the comments.
