Adorable proof that it’s never too early to start asking the tough questions.
Hillary Clinton may have been the most famous person in the room at this Las Vegas event, but it was one of her tiniest fans who stole the show.
US presidential candidate Clinton, 67, fronted a ‘town hall’ event at a Nevada community centre on Tuesday. As she fielded a range of questions from the crowd, a cute-as-a-button little girl took to the microphone to ask one killer question.
The little girl, speaking confidently into the microphone, asked the Democratic presidential hopeful: “Do you think when you’re President you’ll be paid as much as if you were a male?”
Post continues after video:
Clinton told her adorable fan in response: “Oh my goodness, well this is one of the jobs where they have to pay you the same.”
The former US Secretary of State continued: “You know, but there are so many examples where that doesn’t happen, where women doing the same job are not paid as same. So as President, one of the things I’m going to do is to make sure not just the President gets paid the same whether it’s a woman or a man, but every woman in every job gets paid the same as the men who are doing that job.”
Clinton then gave the girl a hug and posed for a photo with her small supporter.
The sweet moment was captured by Bloomberg Business and shared on YouTube, where it has been viewed more than 35,000 times.
Clinton even posted the video on her own official Facebook page this morning, writing: “It’s never too early to start asking the tough questions.”
