ABC News Headline Appears to Celebrate House Democrats Intern Photo

The House Democrats issued a photo [1] to mock House Speaker Paul Ryan’s photo with RNC interns, who happened to be mostly white Americans. What the ABC News headline forgot, which read, “House Democrats Troll Speaker Paul Ryan for Instagram Post with Interns,” that if no one applies, you can’t interview and accept interns. If minorities don’t apply to the RNC (which is a separate issue), then they can’t hire them.

I think this sets a record for the most number of #CapitolHill interns in a single selfie. #SpeakerSelfie. [2]
