Hillary Clinton Makes History—And Newspapers Put Bill Clinton on the Front Page

Last night was a big one for Hillary Clinton. After a grueling fifteen-month campaign, she finally made it official, becoming the Democratic presidential nominee and the first-ever woman lead to major political party.

How did the media respond to her historic achievement? By putting her husband on the front page.

Not surprisingly, Twitter users were not thrilled to see the wrong Clinton in the media spotlight.
