Are People Seriously Just Now Realizing That Bill Clinton Is A Hipster?

This past weekend, Bill and Hillary Clinton set the internet on fire by eating at “graffiti-laden, uber-trendy Brooklyn pizzeria” Roberta’s, which is located in the hip, up-and-coming neighborhood of Bushwick. (You may have read about it in The New York Times!) This is prompting some people to call the Clintons “hipsters,” to which I say: late pass, bro. The Clintons have been hipsters since before you were born. Don’t believe me? Here is some multimedia evidence.

PS: Yowza, Hillary.

10. The nineties are back.

11. He promoted a more swingin’ scene by convincing an entire generation of kids that oral sex didn’t count as “sexual relations.”
