In a monumental moment of personal evolution, an Emerson student and ardent Bernie Sanders supporter contorted her fingers to half-heartedly type #ImWithHer on Facebook this morning.
Rising junior Marketing major Alana Peterson made the decision following Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s speech at the DNC Convention last night.
“This really sucks,” Peterson muttered to herself as she begrudgingly typed the hashtag button on her phone.
“I don’t know if I can do this,” she continued, as she methodically typed each letter, thinking about the concepts of war-hawking, selling out to corporate interests, lying about classified e-mails, and the 1994 federal crime bill.
Peterson then paused to reconsider what she was about to do.
“Fuck it, she’s not Trump,” she concluded, as she softly pressed the ‘post’ button, threw her phone out the window, and burst into tears.
