Some politicians can appear to be in touch with young voters or average ones. Some seem neither "in touch" nor "out of touch." But then there are those politicians who seem so out of touch that their attempts to seem like real people often blow up in their faces. Hillary Clinton is one of these politicians.

Clinton's latest attempt to seem like a real person came Thursday when she rode the New York subway. Because she's just like us, y'all, she was accompanied by security and campaign staff and members of the media, who captured her taking four tries to swipe her card and get through the turnstile.

Perhaps all the subsequent attention paid to Clinton's subway ineptness was unfair to Clinton. Some New Yorkers said it takes everyone that many swipes to get through. Sometimes it takes more than one wave of the card to get through the D.C. Metro (and that usually results in an error and having to take your card to the station manager and OH MY GOD JUST WORK I'M TRYING TO GET TO A HAPPY HOUR!).

But the average New York City subway rider — if it really does take them three or four swipes to get through — doesn't have a mass of TV crews and photographers on hand to catch their embarrassment/annoyance. Then again, most also don't have a reputation for being out of touch and technologically illiterate. Clinton does.

It wasn't even Clinton's only media gaffe of the day. Later, the Clinton campaign turned on a noise machine while she was giving a fundraising speech.

These are just the latest examples of Clinton's war with Technology. She and Technology just don't get along, and they haven't for years. Maybe when she was younger she and Technology were friends, but the relationship has definitely soured in the past few decades. If Technology were using a dating app, it'd probably swipe left on Clinton.

We can go back to 1996 — the last time Clinton drove a car. Thursday's trip was probably the first time she had ridden the subway since she boarded a train in 1992 while her husband Bill was running for president. Again, the media accompanied her, meaning Clinton may be the only person in the world who has never ridden the subway all by herself, outside of actual royalty. Royalty, like Clinton, also probably pays $600 or so for haircuts.

Clinton's email scandal taught us just out of touch the candidate really is. From not being able to work a fax machine, to not getting her own tea, to being unable to find an NPR station, Clinton looks like she is not suited for a position that has anything to do with technology.

Clinton tried to explain that she is down with the working class because she was "dead broke" after leaving the White House in 2000. In the 16 years since, she and her husband have raked in millions giving speeches to financial institutions while being chauffeured around like celebrities. They even started a foundation — and then used the State Department to advance that foundation — that helped them continue their lavish lifestyle.

Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney was also tagged as out of touch. This year, instead of nominating someone who came from modest backgrounds who could easily counter Clinton's problems with technology and the middle class, the party seems poised to nominate someone whose New York penthouse looks like something Liberace would dream up on acid.

Forget being surrounded by staff and having no idea how technology works (we know Donald Trump can at least use Twitter), living in a home drenched in solid gold gives a similar notion of being out-of-touch.

But Trump, in this respect, has something going for him that Clinton doesn't. He seems like he can connect with the working class, hence his standing in the election as the front-runner despite the Republican "Establishment's" clear objection.

So when the question comes up about who voters would rather have a beer with, the answer is most likely Trump, which is ironic, considering he doesn't even drink.
