Forays into US Culture: "...persona is 'an act'..."

It should not be a surprise to anyone who reads this blog that this writer is not a fan of Hilary Clinton, her worldview, her politics, her campaign-style, nor of her myriad personae. (So, if you are a fan, be forewarned: albeit humor is my intention you might not find this post humorous.)
While I am not a fan of Trump as president I am a fan - in very small doses - of Trump's role as twisted entertainer highlighting a bizarre nomination process. And, to riff off a quote from the UK Guardian: "Trump camp says persona is 'an act' as it woos GOP insiders"
A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showed that 65% of Americans have an unfavorable view of the Republican frontrunner.
However, they [newly hired Trump campaign staffers Paul Manafort and Rick Wiley] insisted that once voters got to know the real Trump, as opposed to the public face he has presented while campaigning and while hosting the NBC reality show The Apprentice, they will warm to him. He said that person was just an act.
...They insisted to attendees that Clinton’s negatives were far harder to overcome than Trump’s. Clinton is currently viewed negatively by 56% of voters according to the same poll. Notably, Manafort referred to Clinton as “Crooked Hillary” within the briefing, using the nickname that Trump bestowed upon her.
"Crooked Hillary"?
So far in my drive to compile a collection of Hillary personae photographs (all these come from the UK Guardian) I have not found a specific photo presenting Hillary as Crooked but I found many Hillary personae. Here they are:
