It’s official. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her collection of pantsuits have started a movement ― and it’s a groovy one.
A flash mob of pantsuit-clad dancers took over New York City’s Union Square Park in Manhattan on Sunday to pay homage to Clinton. More than 100 dancers donned suits in a rainbow of colors as they rocked out to Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling.”
And what feeling can the dancers not stop, you might ask? Organizers said it’s the sense of pride they feel for Clinton and the revulsion they have for her GOP opponent, Donald Trump.
The open invitation for the “Pantsuit Power Dance” included a line from The Guardian opinion writer Lindy West: “If we care about our future as a non-blown-up planet, it’s time to stop treating the Democratic candidate as if she’s barely better than a literal white supremacist.”
A Facebook post from the flash mob co-organizer expressed similar views: “We are looking for ... all those fun folks who don’t want to see this country ruled under Donald.”
The dancers raided nearly every thrift shop in town to debut their epic collection of Clinton-inspired pantsuits, Vogue reported. They clearly made their point.
“We’re not just out here to dance,” filmmaker and choreographer Celia Rowlson-Hall told Vogue. “We’re out here to say we support what this woman stands for.”
We’re pretty sure that Clinton, sensible pantsuit and all, would approve this message.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
