Clinton Set To Troll The RNC With The #BetterThanThis Hashtag And It's Brilliant

If there was any doubt at the brilliance of the Clinton campaign, next weeks plan's should confirm it for you
Clinton Set To Troll The RNC With The #BetterThanThis Hashtag And It's Brilliant

The Clinton Campaign may have hit peak perfection with this latest story. I am literally wiping tears away as I write this story, just to give you an idea of how ridiculously good it is. Are you ready?

So unless you have lived under a rock, you know that next week the city of Cleveland will be subjected to the destruction of the Republican National Convention. Open carry, angry KKK, armed protesters, and....a group of Democrats.

Here is the plan. Shh, don't share it...

ABC News reports that the Clinton campaign and the DNC will be hosting a "joint counter convention" during the same week. And based on past social media exchanges, the Clinton team will win, handily (Remember "Delete your account"?).

The Clinton camp is sending "a full staff to Cleveland to troll the Republicans and fight back against every attack made against them throughout the week" ABC reports, and they will be using the hashtag #BetterThanThis, which already pops up on Twitter if you start to type it in.

In addition to social media and fact checking, they will also be holding daily press conferences and press calls. Oh, and they have enlisted a long list of celebrities to help get the word out too, which, quite frankly, is a significantly better list than the actual RNC speaker list and guest list combined.

ABC reports that some of the celebrities already slated to attend include: Sen. Al Franken, Rep. Tim Ryan, Rep. Marcia Fudge, Rep. Joyce Beatty, former Ohio governor Ted Strickland, Rep. Xavier Becerra, Rep. Ruben Gallego, Rep. Joe Crowley, Rep. Bennie Thompson and former senior economic policy adviser to President Obama, Austan Goolsbee. I expect that this list will grow substantially by Monday.

Oh, and the part that made me snark the most? Remember how Donald Trump refused to speak to the NAACP? Guess who is speaking? That's right - Hillary Clinton. She is speaking on Monday, the first day of the RNC, at the NAACP conference in Cincinnati.

A+ trolling.
