Hillary Clinton spent the GOP debate hanging with Kanye and the Kardashians

While Donald Trump was turning a Republican debate into his own private soap box, Hillary Clinton was on another path to gaining attention; the former secretary of state was posting selfies with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West:

Admittedly, it looks like Kanye photobombed the picture more than he was invited to join, but two celebrities are probably better than one for an aspiring presidential candidate’s popularity.

The infamous couple were attending a fundraiser for Clinton’s campaign in Los Angeles, and it seems nobody there was paying much attention to Trump’s ramblings, nor to any of the other Republican hopefuls. And at this early stage, it’s very possible that a well-managed selfie is just as valuable as a soap boxing taking place on the other side of the country.
