Hillary Clinton

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton answered the people's questions today.

The presidential candidate participated in a Facebook Q&A with fans on Monday which resulted in the 67-year-old covering a wide variety of topics, including political issues like immigration reform (Hi, Donald Trump!) and Black Lives Matter, as well as personal points of conversation, like being a grandmother and her love of pantsuits (LOL!).

So with so much to talk about, let's not waste any more time, shall we?

Here are six interesting things we learned today from Clinton's candid Q&A:

1. She Wants to Help Immigrants: When asked if Hillary's going to make it easier for immigrants to have a pathway to citizenship, Clinton responded, "Yes. This is a big difference I have with most of the Republican candidates." 

Hm, wonder who she's talking about? Oh, that's right..."Donald Trump in particular is getting a lot of attention for some hateful rhetoric, but Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio actually agree with him on denying a pathway to citizenship and consigning hardworking immigrants to second class status. I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform that includes that pathway to citizenship."

2. She Wants to Address Racism Head-On: "Black lives matter. Everyone in this country should stand firmly behind that. We need to acknowledge some hard truths about race and justice in this country, and one of those hard truths is that that racial inequality is not merely a symptom of economic inequality," she began.

"Black people across America still experience racism every day. Since this campaign started, I've been talking about the work we must do to address the systemic inequities that persist in education, in economic opportunity, in our justice system. But we have to do more than talk - we have to take action. For example - we should make sure every police department in the US has body cameras. We should provide alternatives to incarceration for low-level offenders. We should invest in early childhood education for every child. We should fight for voting rights and universal voter registration. You will continue to hear me talking about these issues throughout this campaign and pushing for real solutions. -H"

3. She Also Wants Gender Equality: When one user told Clinton about Senator Mitch McConnell statement about her today, in which he said, "The gender card alone isn't enough," Hillary responded, "Wow. If that's what he said, Mitch McConnell really doesn't get it."

She continued, "There is a gender card being played in this campaign. It's played every time Republicans vote against giving women equal pay, deny families access to affordable child care or family leave, refuse to let women make decisions about their health or have access to free contraception. These aren't just women's issues, they are economic issues that drive growth and affect all Americans. Anyone who doesn't get that doesn't understand what our lives are like. -H"

4. She Admits Her Beauty Routine Is a Challenge: "I know these questions can seem fluffy," one Facebook wrote, "but as a young professional woman, I'd genuinely love to hear about how you manage getting ready each morning (especially during your time traveling as Secretary of State and now on the campaign trail) while staying focused on the 'real' work ahead of you that day."

"Amen, sister–you're preaching to the choir," Clinton responded. "It's a daily challenge. I do the best I can–and as you may have noticed, some days are better than others!" LOL!

5. But Her Wardrobe Is Pretty Set: Hillary Clinton is the queen of pantsuits, and she knows it. But guess what? You can be, too! "I never met a pantsuit I didn't love," Clinton wrote back when asked about her favorite two-piece. "Go to our website and you can get one of your own: https://hrc.io/1GwBgAM -H."

6. She Loves Being a Granny: Hillary may or may not be the next president of the United States, but she already has one job that she's over the moon about, and that's being a grandmother to daughter Chelsea Clinton's baby girl Charlotte. When asked what it's like to be a grandmother, the presidential hopeful excitedly responded, "IT'S THE BEST THING EVER!"
