According to Politico, Adam Smith and Stacy Lambe, the creators of “Texts from Hillary,” were invited to meet Clinton at the State Department today and Smith was “still in shock.”

“It was great. She came out, she was all smiles, told us how much she likes the site and that people have been telling her all about it,” Smith was quoted as saying. “She just thinks it’s great.”

According to The Associated Press, Clinton aides said the Secretary of State thought the site was very funny and asked to meet its creators. The news agency said Clinton posed with Lambe and Smith for a photograph and signed her submission "Thanks for the many LOLZ Hillary 'Hillz."
