New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, covering Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail, on Saturday invited captions for a photo of Clinton taken in New Hampshire while the nationally leading Democratic presidential candidate campaigned at a restaurant. Clinton is behind in the polls for Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, trailing Democrat rival Bernie Sanders by double digits.
The photo shows Clinton standing behind two young children who are decidedly uncomfortable with the attention. One has burst into tears while the other, whose head is being patted by Clinton, has a fearful look on her face.
It’s not often The New York Times invites mockery of a Democratic candidate they’re covering!
