When you live in a bubble, you sometimes forget not everyone thinks the way you do.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker campaigned to be the 2016 Republican nominee for president. In his July speech at the Republican National Convention, he said “America deserves better than Hillary Clinton.” The crowd seemed to heartily agree.
And that is perhaps why, when someone using his account tweeted a photo of Clinton hugging President Barack Obama on Tuesday, they may have figured everyone would look at the image and think, “ew.”
They were mistaken.
Turns out plenty of people have been just fine with the last eight years, and jokingly took the tweet as a Walker-endorsed reason to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Election Day.

In a way, that tweet was a lot like Walker’s short-lived presidential campaign. He did something he thought would work out well, only for the bottom to drop out immediately.
