When you are on the campaign trail, you will not be able to escape the tough questions. However, for Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton, one tough question came from a very unsuspected place.
During an event in Las Vegas, one young Clinton supporter brought up the topic of wage equality in the most adorable way possible.
The youngster asked Clinton if a female president would make as much as a man. It was really a great moment for everyone in attendance. The hall erupted with applause and Clinton gave the young girl a hug.
“This is one of the jobs where they have to pay you the same,” Clinton said. “But there are so many examples where that doesn’t happen, where women doing the same job are not paid the same. So as president, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that not just the president is paid the same, but that every woman in every job gets paid the same.”
Perfect response. And with Clinton making wage equality such a big part of her campaign, she couldn’t have asked for a better setup.
Thanks to Bloomberg Business, we are able to see video of the exchange.
Are we sure this wasn’t a setup?
