Hillary Will Call Your Mom for You on Mother’s Day

While other candidates are making lofty promises about rescuing Americans from the tyranny of Obamacare and giving us “the opportunity to author the greatest chapter yet in the amazing story of America,” Hillary Clinton has a more practical offer: She’ll call your mom for you on Mother’s Day. Clinton announced the contest on Sunday in two tweets that link to a page where you can donate to her campaign. As the Washington Post notes, it says in the fine print that you don’t have to donate to be one of the five lucky phone-call winners. It’s implied that Hillary’s chat with mom will supplement your own phone call, but that’s not spelled out either.

Your mom probably wants to hear from you, too, but your update on that cute thing your cat did the other day is going to be particularly boring after she hears from the potential leader of the free world.
