During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, Clinton told the host she’s taken a ton of selfies on the campaign trail – but none so flawless as the one she took with the so-called “Queen and King of Selfies,” Kardashian West and husband Kanye West. The trio met in L.A. in August at a fundraiser for the Democratic front-runner – and the rest is selfie history.
“She has that face. She always has the same selfie face,” DeGeneres told Clinton. “Did you learn? Do you have a selfie face now?”
“No, I don’t. But here’s what I learned,” Clinton replied. “First of all, she was very nice and of course when she says to me, ‘Can we take a selfie?’ I said, ‘Hello, of course.’ I mean that’s like an obvious answer. She takes out her phone and she presses the button – I’ve never seen this anywhere else She pulls it out, it has lights all the way around it, like, little tiny, tiny lightbulbs.”
“I saw her phone. It makes you look better,” DeGeneres said.
“It makes anybody look better,” Clinton said. “I have been desperately looking for one of those ever since with no luck. So if anybody knows where you can get one ”
She’s in luck. Kardashian West took to Twitter on Monday to reveal the “secret to her selfies,” even giving Clinton a special shout-out.
DeGeneres said she, too, was eager to get her hands on the reality star’s secret selfie enhancer, joking that it works so well no one would ever know Kardashian West is “really in real life hideous.”
“No, no. That’s not true,” Clinton said. “She’s beautiful. But I mean, she whips it out. She hits this button. The light is there. She holds it at a perfect angle and she makes everybody look better than you have any reason to look.”
