Hillary Clinton looks at the memes. She even enjoys some of them — including one that made the rounds following the third and final presidential debate, which highlighted parallels between the Democratic nominee's personal style and that of various hip-hop stars. You know the one: 

In an interview on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club on Wednesday, host Charlamagne Tha God brought the meme to Clinton's attention. He noted the similarities between her debate ensembles and outfits worn by Tupac, Suge Knight and Snoop Dogg, all Death Row artists. 

"Was that on purpose?" Charlamagne asked. "Are you a fan of Death Row Records?" Clinton lol-ed heartily.

"I think Death Row and a lot of other fashion sources have influenced my look," was the candidate's cheeky response.

This is not Clinton's first Breakfast Club spot. In April, she appeared on the radio show in advance of the New York State primary and shortly after the debut of Beyoncé's "Formation." During that interview, the candidate admitted that she — like Beyoncé — keeps hot sauce in her bag

On Wednesday, she also enjoyed a birthday serenade from Stevie Wonder. At 69 years old, Clinton is still up on the trends — both internet and pantsuit.
