Stacy Lambe and Adam Smith, creators of the insta-meme Tumblr "Texts From Hillary," have been LIVING the past few days after receiving a call from the office of the Secretary of State.
After posting a submission purportedly from Sec. Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, Stacy and Adam came out with the smoking gun that proves it was the real Hillz who stood up to praise the pair's viral creation.
Reports Metro Weekly:
Talking with Smith today after he and Lambe left their meeting with Clinton, he laughs.
"It was sort of unbelievable. Her staff had emailed us yesterday, said that they liked the site and that the Secretary wanted to meet us. They asked if we could come over to the State Department, and we of course said, 'Sure, we'd love to!'"
"[W]e went up to her quarters and then she came out and she was all smiles and she told us she liked the site and shook out hands," Smith says.
Lambe marvels: "For her to ... walk up to us and know us by name and shake our hands and greet us and everything, it was just absolutely divine."
Smith: "Then, she said, 'I have this idea for a picture I want to do.' Her assistant gave us our phones back because they have to take them when you go into her office. They gave us our phones back and we just took pictures pretending that we were texting."
With her sunglasses on.
Lambe says, "It was a wild moment."
