Hillary Clinton covets Kim Kardashian’s next-level selfie technology

Hillary Clinton stopped by Ellen Monday to talk about her campaign and play ‘Heads Up!’—she also made a confession: Kim Kardashian has the best selfie-taking technology that money can buy.

The presidential hopeful posed for a pic with the reality TV star and husband Kanye West at a fundraiser in August, and it garnered more than 970,000 likes and 35,000 comments to date. More importantly, it exposed Clinton to Kardashian’s unreal phone set-up.

I got my selfie!!! I really loved hearing her speak & hearing her goals for our country! #HillaryForPresident

According to Clinton, Kardashian has custom lighting equipment attached to her phone that activates when she switches the camera to selfie mode. It features a frame of bright bulbs, like a vanity mirror.

Clinton explained: 

I mean, she whips it out. She hits this button. The light is there. She holds it at a perfect angle and she makes everybody look better than you have any reason to look… I have been desperately looking for one of those ever since with no luck. So if anybody knows where you can get one…

DeGeneres then quipped that Kardashian probably has a line of her own hitting stores soon. 

Was she kidding? Yes. But would we buy that product? 100 percent.
