Hillary Clinton said during an interview Wednesday with black radio hosts that her fashion choices are inspired by rap artists.
Clinton made the bizarre comment on “The Breakfast Club” on New York’s WWPR-FM. Hosts DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee asked the candidate if she had seen memes comparing her outfits with those of rap artists, such as Snoop Dogg.
“Do you look at them?” host Charlemagne Tha God asked Clinton, to which she responded, “Sometimes.”
The host then pulled out his smartphone to show Clinton some examples of when her outfits resembled those of Death Row Records artists.

Clinton then joked, “I think Death Row and a lot of other fashion sources have influenced my look, don’t you?”

“Now listen, I want you to know that people are going to see this and say, ‘She’s pandering to black people,’” host Charlamagne Tha God said.
“OK,” Clinton replied at the time. “Is it working?”
