Hillary doesn't drive and doesn't use the subway. She sure knows what it's like to be an ordinary working woman.

I take pride in nailing MetroCard swipe first time every time. Takes tourists like @HillaryClinton average of 2.4 swipes

Third swipe is the charm? Doesn't know the doubled over metro card trick https://t.co/JZ45s5L9aw

Great tabloid story would have been to discover Hillary under the cover of night practicing her subway swipe at the Cortelyou station.

Yes, it took Hillary Clinton three or four swipes to get through the turnstile. Also, it takes everyone three or four swipes.

Hillary Clinton demonstrating more familiarity with the subway than Andrew Cuomo or Bill de Blasio tbh

Hillary's Metrocard trouble makes her more relatable to the average NYer than just about anything else she could do
