Clinton to Trump supporter: ‘I don’t have horns’
MASON CITY, Iowa (CNN) — Hillary Clinton had a message for a supporter’s father who is backing Donald Trump: ‘I don’t have horns.”
Clinton had just wrapped up her town hall in Mason City when Kayla Helmers, a 22-year old volunteer who lives in Mason City, approached the former secretary of state on the rope line and asked her to tape a message for her father, Shawn Starry, who has decided to caucus for Donald Trump.
After shaking her head, closing her eyes and asking for her father’s name, Clinton relented.
“Hi Shawn, I am here with your daughter,” Clinton said like she was leaving a voicemail. “I hope you can see I don’t have horns. And I really do hope that as this election goes on you will listen to your daughter. Thanks. Bye.”
Helmers and her mother, both of whom are supporting Clinton, were overjoyed with the video and said afterward that they planned to post the video to Facebook and tag Starry as a way to tease him.
“He is a Donald Trump supporter and, yeah,” she said. “I totally disagree with him and every time he comes up with an argument he fails to support his claims.”
Before leaving the venue, Helmers said her father had not responded. But she didn’t think he was going to be swayed by the former first lady.
Clinton has grown fond of the horns line. Earlier in the day, during a rally in Omaha, Nebraska, Clinton told her supporters to tell their Republican friends that, “As best as you can tell, looking under the lights, I don’t have horns.”
