Hillary Clinton has often been accused of lacking a campaign message—she does not possess a succinct sound bite of goals for her presidency or what she will do for the American people, as Bernie Sanders does with his talk of a “rigged economy” and “corrupt campaign finance system,” or Donald Trump with his vague but catchy “Make America Great Again.”
As “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski said on Monday, “Since Hillary Clinton's candidacy was even a topic, I remember asking every person that came on this set, ‘What is her message?’, and all I got was word-salad.”
To combat this, Clinton debuted a new campaign slogan on Monday: Stronger Together. Intended to encompass her campaign's "big idea," it is exactly the sort of meaningless platitude (akin to her favorite phrase of "breaking down barriers") voters reject.
Thankfully, Twitter decided to step in and offer Clinton some better options that truly represent what she’s all about.

Mainly used to expose her hypocrisy, flip-flopping, and deception, the slogans accurately sum up much of Clinton’s time in the political spotlight.
There were a few that pointed out what Clinton has done for women’s rights and children, but the majority of the tweets exemplified why Americans largely view Clinton as untrustworthy and dishonest.
