#ManEnough4Hillary Ad is Fake but Priceless

#ManEnough4Hillary Ad is Fake but Priceless

You’ll never guess where the image comes from.

If you’ve been watching Twitter for the last few days, you may have seen an ad floating around which features a bearded hipster asking if you’re man enough to vote for Hillary.

Unfortunately, the ad is fake. The Hill reports:

‘Man enough to vote for Hillary’ ad is fake

An ad that asks voters whether they’re “man enough” to vote for Hillary Clinton is not from Clinton’s campaign, Jezebel reported Thursday.

The ad — featuring the slogan “I am man enough to vote for a woman … Are you?” — has been shared on Twitter with the hashtag #ManEnough4Hillary.

It also features one of the Democratic presidential candidate’s slogans, “I’m with her.”

Snopes confirmed this:

Adding to the hilarity of this, the site Recode reports that the image comes from a public service announcement about STDs:

That viral #ManEnough4Hillary ad is a fake and it comes from a syphilis PSA

On the surface it looked like the case of the stock photo gone horribly wrong.

A bearded dude with slicked-back hair, sleeve tattoo and a smoldering gaze declares, “I am man enough to vote for a woman … Are you?” It looks, by all appearances, to be the Clinton campaign’s social media answer to the Bernie Bro.

But the Clinton campaign says it doesn’t have anything to do with the #ManEnough4Hillary ad, which websites The Daily Caller and Daily Wire treated as a legitimate — if ham-handed — campaign.

The Internet rumor-busting site Snopes called it out as a phony.

But for a time, the Twitterati enjoyed the revelation that the same hipster model featured in the faux-Clinton social media ad has appeared in a Portland ad campaign with a definite feel-the-burn context — of the variety associated with a sexually transmitted disease.

Naturally, this set off a comedy storm on Twitter:

How did we ever get through elections without Twitter?

Waiting for the logical Hillary campaign ad:

I’m stupid enough to vote for Hillary

Right, this was known immediately after the ad’s appearance. No more to do with the Official Hillary Office of World Conquest than the ad with the pic of Trump’s wife in dishabille had to do with the Cruz campaign.

So, is it a fake which just happens to be congruent with the amazingly tin-eared stuff Camp Hillary had been churning out so far, or is it good old Plausible Deniability? Unfortunately, the Infallible God Snopes can’t penetrate the superficial any more than the rest of us.

Real or not, the damage is done.

I thought Paul Ryan shaved his beard off?

For those moments when you aren’t sure you are being inappropriate …

Switch man for woman, Black for White, Hillary for criminal .. err .. Hillary for Trump …

I’m with her -> I’m with him .. who wouldn’t call that sexist ?

“I am man enough to vote for a woman … Are you?” -> “I am woman enough to vote for a man … Are you?” … don’t see it working

Hillary’s campaign says it wasn’t one of theirs.

The Clintons are paragons of integrity, so why wouldn’t we believe that?

I would not use the word “fake” to describe it.

Robert Byrd. Grand Dragon of the KKK, Democrat, and should never be forgotten by either party.

Decent people everywhere should rub the media’s noses in it every time they want to squawk about microaggressions or any other horse hockey. Actual member of the KKK and the media gives him the democrat pass for decades. Yes, please put him in more Hillary adds.

The real question to me is Does hilldog identify as a woman? Hard to tell about her.
