Politicians are always trying to come across as relatable. Unfortunately their attempts always come off as awkward, forced and often very cringeworthy.
In the last couple of months, several Democrat presidential candidates have released just weird social media videos, trying to appeal to the younger demographic.
Republican or Democrat, these kind of vides rarely work out for the candidate. Instead, they are likely to be something they wish they could take back. New York senator and presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand is going to soon regret this post.
Good to be back in Iowa. Do you like my new workout shirt? pic.twitter.com/0YVX0zZCvj

Not only is it just weird, it’s pandering to the highest degree as she mentions Iowa in the post. Also, she wants us to know that she has a sense of humor with her shirt. Of course, this is in reference to the woman not interested in listening to in an Iowa bar, stating that she just wanted ranch.
Social media let her know how they felt about the awkward video.

This is so comical I honestly think these candidates are paid for by the GOP. “Im gunna go grab umm… a beer”

Please tell every politician you know to stop doing this. I don't want to see you workout. I don't want to see you eat fried chicken. I don't want to see you at the dentist. It's embarrassing and has no bearing on the policy issues that Americans care about. pic.twitter.com/jJtavALciN

It’s so cringeworthy how hard these politicians try to relate to the average American. #bunchofphonies
