Hillary Clinton Meets 4-Year-Old Girl Dressed as Her For Halloween (Meanwhile, POTUS and The First Lady Have Their Own Look-Alikes)
Hillary Clinton, Meet (Little) Hillary Clinton!
For some little girls, a princess costume at Halloween would be just too typical.
This year, 4-year-old Sullivan Wood decided to dress up as her hero: Hillary Clinton.
Little Sullivan sported her “Madame President” costume, complete with a pantsuit, pearls and a mini briefcase donning the words “Senator’s Briefcase” on Saturday when she attended Clinton’s rally in Charleston, South Carolina, with her mother, BuzzFeed News reports.
Campaign aides spotted the little supporter in the crowd and whisked Sullivan and her family away for a meeting with the presidential hopeful herself.
“Hillary was tickled pink and Sullivan was just so excited,” Sullivan’s mother, Jennifer Jones-Wood, told BuzzFeed. “She’s been talking about it non-stop.”
A Facebook photo of the encounter uploaded on Clinton’s official page shows Clinton crouching beside, well, little Clinton.
Jones-Wood commented on the photo: “Sullivan told me she wanted to be POTUS for Halloween, specifically Hillary. Haters can hate but today will be remembered as one of the best days of our lives.”
The mother uploaded a video to Facebook of little Sullivan meeting Hillary. In the 27-second clip, Sullivan initially runs away from Clinton shyly, but soon returns and gives her idol a hug.
“She looks like a future president,” the Democratic front-runner is heard proclaiming.
Over the weekend, Michelle Obama shared an adorable side-by-side shot of her and Obama dressed to the nines at the Obama’s Chinese state dinner in September and a sweet duplicate of the photo by two little kids.
“Mini me and POTUS! Who are you dressing up as tonight?” the First Lady captioned the adorable snap.
