‘Surreal!’ Hillary confounds with ‘victory’ speech before winner even declared

Powered by Topple

While the votes were still being counted in Iowa on Monday, Hillary Clinton delivered a speech that all but declared total victory.

The Democrat race was so close between Clinton and rival Bernie Sanders that a clear winner could not be declared right away. But Clinton said she was “breathing a sigh of relief” as she thanked Iowa in her “victory” speech.

Social media users reacted with confusion and amusement.

Apparently, many were distracted not by the content of her speech but by its delivery.

And some Twitter users were focused on the real star of the night, and launched an audience member into instant social media fame.
