While 9 dudes with limited time to speak crowded onto a Fox News state, Hillary Clinton watched it with someone Americans actually recognize.

 

I got my selfie!!! I really loved hearing her speak & hearing her goals for our country! #HillaryForPresident

I don't know how this plays as a political decision, but while a small army of Republican presidential candidates descended on Cleveland and Fox News, Hillary Clinton and a small army of Hollywood folks descended on the phone of Scooter Braun, manager to Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. According to Variety:

The sold-out early evening event drew about 250 people, at ticket prices of $2,700 per person, giving her campaign another shot of cash. Early evening arrivals included Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, according to two attendees, along with Kris Jenner, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Usher, Jason Collins and Mary Steenburgen, a longtime friend of the Clintons. Also there was Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey, Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-Calif.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.).

Before the event, Kim Kardashian sent out this, uh, pensive Instagram expressing her desire to meet "the next president" and her hope that they might share a selfie:

Her goal was more than met. Not only did Kim get that selfie (with Kanye) and Instagram it out, Hillary matched her 'gram for 'gram and sent it out on her official account as well (although with Kim's 41.7 million followers, it's clear who's doing whom the real favor):
