Hillary Clinton appeared to be having a grand-old time during the third GOP debate tonight as she watched – and live-texted her reactions – from her hotel in New Hampshire, where she is currently campaigning.
“Hillary here. I’m here in New Hampshire watching the GOP debate – how about you?” she texted to her supporters. “Reply YES to get texts from me tonight.”
The text was signed “-H,” meaning it was sent from Clinton herself.
Throughout the debate, Clinton continued to text her supporters – hitting the Republican candidates on issues such as college affordability and equal pay. She called out Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson specifically on health care.
“For a surgeon, Ben Carson has a pretty poor diagnosis,” she texted. “We need to build on the progress we’ve made on health care.”
