It’s not that Hillary Clinton bashed President Donald Trump during an appearance at a two-day music and culture festival in New York City’s Central Park that caught the attention of social media users, it was what she was wearing.
While known to rock a muumuu from time to time, Clinton appeared in what looked very much like a hospital gown. At least, that was the online consensus.
Oh my gosh, I didn't even know Hillary was sick until I saw her wearing a hospital gown in public. Get better soon, Hillary! pic.twitter.com/93mnxp3Vyu

Clinton spoke at OZY Fest 2018, which is sponsored by the digital media company Ozy, and hit Trump over his “zero tolerance” policy toward illegal immigration and on the Helsinki press conference the president held last week with Russia President Vladimir Putin.
All but publicly embracing illegal immigration, the failed 2016 presidential candidate spoke about decades of “absorbing immigrants,” or “opening the doors,” as she spun it.
Dismissing concerns that 12-20 million illegal immigrants in the country may be “hurting America,” Clinton insisted this “has been to our advantage.”
It’s difficult to say if she meant to the advantage of the US or the Democratic Party.
The woman who personally launched the Obama administration “reset” with Russia was perplexed over why Trump is “trying to be friends with Putin.”
“Why didn’t he stand up for our country?” Clinton said. “In this case it doesn’t seem like our president cares. He’s trying to be friends with Putin for reasons we are all trying to figure out.”
But that gown?
Unfortunately for Clinton, if she had anything substantive to offer, it got lost in her choice of attire.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
You, a dumb lib: "Why do they keep saying Hillary is sick??"
