Amid all the racial animosity that now defines America under the Obama administration, the Hillary Clinton campaign scrambled to delete a photo of the Democratic presidential contender shaking hands with an apparent white supremacist.
While Hillary was in New Hampshire on Friday, a photo posted to her Twitter account showed her shaking hands with a man outside an ice cream parlor — the unidentified man had a tattoo on the inside of his forearm that read “White.”
The post included a warm, fuzzy quote from the candidate about “connecting with friends.”
One of the first to notice the tattoo was Paul Gessler, a reporter at WBFF Fox45 in Baltimore:
Did Hillary Clinton just tweet a photo of her shaking hands with a guy with a White Power tattoo? https://t.co/9SVj1WlikH

And voila, the tweet disappears!
While it’s not known if the man is a white supremacist — the area Clinton was visiting is known for the White Mountains region mountain range — the campaign wasn’t taking any chances.
But the Internet is forever, as seen above. Here are more takes of the photo:
