Hundreds of posters criticizing Hillary Clinton have begun cropping up in areas around New York City and Las Vegas, according to numerous photographs obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.


The ads depict Clinton’s face in black and white and are accompanied by numerous phrases critical of the presidential contender’s high-profile efforts to ban reporters and others from using certain words such as “secretive” and “ambitious” to describe Clinton.

The 5 messages in Hillary Clinton's announcement video

Hillary Clinton spoke just 94 words in her presidential announcement video, but she managed to send five important messages about her coming presidential campaign.


First, Clinton indicated she believes 2016 will be another election about the economy. "Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top," Clinton said. "Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion — so you can do more than just get by — you can get ahead." Contrary to the argument that 2016 could be a foreign policy election, Clinton's kickoff video contained no clues that the speaker is a former secretary of state or that we live in a dangerous world.


Second, Clinton indicated that she doesn't feel the need to re-introduce herself to the American people. She said nothing about who she is, what she has done, or why she is running for president. And of course, she didn't kick off her campaign with a speech or a more extended discussion of her candidacy, even though a significant number of people in the political world readily admit that they don't exactly know the rationale for her candidacy.

'Dozens of scandals, zero accomplishments': Hillary Clinton faces online backlash – as she sets out on the presidential campaign trail



Hillary Clinton presidential announcement: #WhyI'mnotvotingforHillary tops Twitter In the opinion of mother political commentators and punters, Hillary Clinton's announcement that she was making a second run for the White House was just about right.

It was relatively low-key, she did not appear arrogant and she herself only appeared briefly in the video that lasted two minutes and eighteen seconds, choosing instead to devote the time to images of the sort of ordinary Americans she has vowed to help.

But pretty soon, it became obvious that not everyone was impressed. Social media erupted with mocking, and sometimes derogatory posts, and before long the hashtag #WhyI'mnotvotingforHillary was trending on Twitter.Scissors-32x32.png

Seven Takeaways From the Hillary Announcement Video

John Podhoretz | @jpodhoretz04.13.2015 - 11:16 AM

1) The video Hillary Clinton released announcing her candidacy is a liberal version of a “baseball, hot dogs, apple pies and Chevrolets” commercial—classic visual cliches evoking the America not of old but of older television commercials, only with single mothers and gay couples added to the mix.


2) The ad the video evokes, oddly enough, is the Ronald Reagan “it’s morning in America” spot from 1984. I say “oddly enough” because the implicit theme of “morning in America” was the comeback of the United States both financially and in its own self-understanding. That wasn’t spin. The ad was released during an economic growth spurt almost unimaginable today (the economy grew by 3.8 percent in 1982, 6.4 percent in 1983 and 6.3 percent in 1984—by 8.2 percent in the first quarter of 2004 alone).Scissors-32x32.png
