The hashtag #ImNotKiddingMaddi has recently started trending on social media, featuring Hillary Clinton about her Benghazi emails. As though The former First Lady turned presidential candidate didn’t have enough drama regarding emails already — now she’s officially been “Dank Memed” because of one.
The Telegraph shared that in the leaked email, Clinton gets desperate for donations begging a woman named “Maddi” for one dollar donation.

“After tonight’s results roll in, keep this in mind: most of the country casts their primary ballots by the middle of March. We absolutely, critically need to make sure Hillary comes out on top in the states that lie ahead. I’m not kidding, Maddi, I’m asking you to give $1 right this second. Can you chip in?”
The “Maddi” discussed in the #ImNotKiddingMaddi email shared the message online.And the Internet punished her for it as the #ImNotKiddingMaddi hashtag grows more hilarious by the second.
Hillary tries to get her average donation down by begging for $1 donations? She's really feeling the Bern, now #ImNotKiddingMaddi

#ImNotKiddingMaddi had its roots from the Facebook Humor page, Bernie Sanders’ Dank Memes. This page features the Vermont Senator engaged in all sorts of photo-shopped antics.
Senator Sanders recently beat Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by a staggering 20 percent. Telegraph says that supporters of Sanders are calling his progress a “political revolution” of sorts as his path becomes a little more clear towards the white house after the primary victory.
Sanders told supporters, “Together we have sent a message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington, from Maine to California. The government of our great country belongs to all of the people and not just a handful of the wealthy.”
The New York Times reports that Hillary had hoped women and working-class voters would at least narrow the gap with Mr. Sanders — however the very demographic she was aiming for, betrayed her just as bad as Maddi did.
Senator Sanders raked in votes from women, young voters, American workers who make less than $50,000 a year instead. On the contrary, Clinton’s primary voters were age 65 and older.
So far the Dem. race is up for grabs as the political pendulum swings in every direction this election year. Going forward, Hillary will have to get any sort of email controversy to die down to compete with sanders. And #ImNotKiddingMaddi isn’t helping.
On a more serious matter of non-maddi-related leaked emails, The Inquisitr reported on the Benghazi incident last year regarding Hillary. Government officials have been gradually releasing her emails during the crisis, during her time as Secretary of State, since they first discovered them.
So far, they are not pleased with the way Clinton has handled the terror attack of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi Libya and it has plagued her campaign run ever since.
The first round they released contained nearly 300 emails with a total of over 55,000 the Inquisitr writes.
Clinton is accused of using the private server for personal reasons. The private account is reserved for the exchange of classified information only.
And just who is this “Maddi?” The internet may never know, however, Twitter will not relent on the matter.

Hillary hasn’t given an official response on #ImNotKiddingMaddi currently. And there’s no word on whether Maddi ever gave her a dollar or not yet.
