Hillary Clinton supporter Kim Frederick’s hashtag #HillarySoQualified quickly became a joke after supporters of opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) hijacked it.

Frederick started the hashtag after he claimed that Clinton is not a qualified presidential candidate.
“I was livid,” Frederick told The Washington Post. “Just beyond fiercely angry about this, and I could barely control myself. Even talking about it now gets me worked up.”
But Sanders’ supporters caught wind and flooded it with reasons why they believe she should not win the nomination.

“Any time a Hillary Clinton hashtag gets started, in the beginning … it’s going to be our stuff,” Frederick continued. “Whenever it starts to trend, we own it for five, 10 minutes, and then these Bernie tots come in and start trying to take it over.”
She also told The Washington Post she thinks many accounts are not real people.
