As if last week's GOP primary debate wasn't proof enough, the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election is going to be one for the e-books. Social media has turned every potential candidate into the worst version of themselves (read: thirst demons), and while everyone from Hillary Clinton to Jeb Bush could benefit from embracing the #NeverTweet movement, we never stood a chance of escaping this election cycle without seeing teen language regurgitated through an algorithm and thrown back at the elusive "youth voters." Speaking of — how on fleek are your student loans rn?
How does your student loan debt make you feel? Tell us in 3 emojis or less.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 12, 2015
Student loans are horrifying and eternal, unlike emoji, which are fun and flirtatious. For the sake of this exercise, we select the "100" emoji three times in a row to represent our unceasing monthly payments. Does that answer your question, Hillary? Tea emoji, frog emoji.
Hillary Clinton's social-media manager is of course asking about student loans because only Sunday, Clinton proposed a spending plan that would aid undergraduates in paying tuition at public colleges without having debt later. The average 2015 college grad will have to pay back over $35,000 in student loans, making them the most indebted class in history.
#TBT to when you were student-loan-free.
