Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton infamously wished herself a happy birthday back in October of 2016 as the “future president.”
She reprised the widely mocked post on Tuesday to honor Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA): “In two weeks, we could call this birthday girl Madam Vice President,” Clinton optimistically posted, captioning an image of Harris.
Similarly, on October 26, 2016, during the last leg of the presidential election, Clinton captioned a photo of herself on her birthday, adding the caption, “Happy birthday to this future president.”
Of course, Clinton went on to lose the election to Donald Trump, a New York real estate mogul and reality television star with zero political experience.
Folks online were quick to notice the similarities.
“I love both the open embrace of communist branding/imagery, and the lack of self awareness about her last ‘birthday’ post making a prediction,” commented Jared A. Chambers.
New York Post reporter Emma-Jo Morris reacted, “Not this again.”
