Clinton had difficulty swiping her MetroCard at one the city’s subway turnstiles and the incident was caught on camera.
Once footage hit the airwaves, Twitter users had a field day.
Oh man. It took Hillary five swipes. Welcome to the struggle https://t.co/3RGrZVUeVc— Brett LoGiurato (@BrettLoGiurato) April 7, 2016
Yes, it took Hillary Clinton three or four swipes to get through the turnstile. Also, it takes everyone three or four swipes.— Dan Merica (@danmericaCNN) April 7, 2016

If it is any consolation, many fulltime city dwellers struggle with the swipe as well.
Clinton took a dig at former Brooklynite Bernie Sanders who said in a recent Daily News interview that in order to ride the subway “you get a token and you get in."
The city has not had tokens since 2003.
“I think it was my first term when we changed from tokens to MetroCards,” Clinton said.
