Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced their plans for election night — and they include a giant glass metaphor.
Clinton will address supporters at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, a venue that has a glass ceiling.
Twitter users were quick to note the symbolism.

Hillary Clinton will hold her Election Night party at the Javits Center in NYC, per @jmpalmieri. (The space, notably, has a glass ceiling!)— Liz Kreutz (@ABCLiz) October 26, 2016
Others characterized the metaphor as a bit too on the nose.

Some saw the metaphor as fitting.

Clinton has stated that electing a woman as president would shatter the “highest and hardest glass ceiling.”
