At a campaign rally at Temple University on Wednesday night, Bernie Sanders detailed why he doesn't believe Hillary Clinton is qualified to be president.
"She has been saying lately that I am 'not qualified' to be president. Well let me just say in response to Secretary Clinton: I don't believe that she is qualified if she is through her super PAC taking tens of millions of dollars in special interest funds," Sanders said to a crowd of supporters in Philadelphia.
His comments caused a stir among Clinton supporters and some took to social media to defend their candidate with the hashtag #HillarySoQualified.

What able and professional woman hasn't had a mediocre old white dude with fewer credentials question her abilities? #HillarySoQualified

Good morning. Yesterday I was told a First Lady, Sec of State, Yale lawyer, world's most admired woman is "unqualified." #HillarySoQualified

But the supportive tweets didn't last for long. Many sarcastically used the hashtag to air out their grievances with Clinton.

This isn't the first time Clinton has become the butt of a joke on social media, according to Kim Frederick the Clinton supporter who started the global trend.
"Any time a Hillary Clinton hashtag gets started, in the beginning ... it's going to be our stuff," she told the Washington Post. "Whenever it starts to trend, we own it for five, 10 minutes, and then these Bernie tots come in and start trying to take it over."
