This Pro-Hillary Ad Features "Bill Clinton" In A Dress

Well, that's one way to try and get her to run.

Posted on

The group – BillForFirstLady2016.com – started a social media campaign that focuses on not what Hillary can do for the country, but what Bill would do as "first lady."

"We always knew it was Hillary who 'wore the pants,'" said Luke Montgomery, a strategist for the group. "Now Bill's wearing the dress!"

The committee says it is trying to get young voters excited about the election through its campaign.

If and when a woman is elected president and she has a male spouse, he would probably be "first gentleman," Newsweek reported.

However, if the Clintons regained the White House Bill Clinton would probably continue to be referred to as "Mr. President" or "former president."

The PAC said it refers to "Bill" as first lady instead of first gentlemen "because it's fun."

The PAC's campaign said it's "engaging and exciting younger voters through humor to be a part of history."
