The original Texts from Hillary meme featured the photograph of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton casually texting an unknown individual. Internet users edited the photograph and added captions, giving her the appearance of texting childish sentences to strangers. For example, Hillary texts in one version, "ROFL @ ur tumblr! g2g - scrunchie time. ttyl?..."
