Hillary Clinton Kicks Back On The Set Of Scandal

Everyone in D.C. has to deal with Olivia Pope at one time or another, and Hillary Clinton is no different. The presidential candidate swung by the set of Scandal last night to hang with Kerry Washington, Scott Foley, Tony Goldwyn, Darby Stanchfield, and the other Gladiators for a 21st century sort of press op. Instead of shaking hands and kissing babies, HRC posed for Instagram pics with Washington and the rest of the crew, who threw their support behind the candidate.

Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes is a big supporter of Hillary Clinton; the Year of Yes author appeared in a pro-HRC video that Lena Dunham posted on Facebook at the beginning of February. Clinton was in town to raise money for her campaign; it seems she was just in the neighborhood and decided to swing by and say hi. Who could blame her?

This isn’t the first time Clinton’s appeared on social media with buzzy stars who have clout with young female voters. She also has an upcoming cameo in Broad City, as revealed on Twitter in December.
