On Thursday there was a swearing in ceremony for Mike Hammer, the Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs.

To celebrate the occasion, attendees were asked to wear purple which is Hammer’s favorite color.

Although Ms. Hillary Clinton does not own a purple pantsuit, she took a moment to put on her purple best.

Drawing laughter and cheers from the crowd, Ms. Clinton adorned herself in purple beads, rings and a pair of purple and green cat-eye sunglasses.

“Mike, I was in a real dilemma,” joked Clinton. “I have pantsuits in nearly every color – except purple,” she said as the crowd clapped and laughed.

Before continuing with the swearing in ceremony, the Mardi Gras bedecked Secretary of State thanked “the good work of the PA Staff” for her purpleness.
