Hello, may we see a show of hands — who doesn’t know what the word parody means? 1, 2, 3, 4 . . . OK, 347 of you. That word in the heading of this story — Hillary Clinton (parody) — tipped the others here that what they were about to read was written as a joke, which typically employs a literary device known as humor. Think, things that make you laugh. When you reread the story with the understanding that this is intended to make people laugh, you’ll see why so many people have enjoyed it so much.
P.S. The Medium “editors” didn’t write the story and have no reason to take it down. Humor, in fact, is recognized as a category of writing on Medium. Many of the commenters are also employing humor, but without realizing it. But don’t worry, that’s not unusual — the “editors” let those comments remain on the site, too.
