Two selfies. Two classes of summer interns. Two entities, Comcast and Congress. There can only be one winner.

This isn’t an official competition, but we are here to deliver a verdict.

First, some background.

Last Friday, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan posted a photograph of the Capitol Hill summer interns to Instagram. The picture drew immediate backlash for the very apparent reason that nearly everyone in the selfie is white.


I think this sets a record for the most number of #CapitolHill interns in a single selfie. #SpeakerSelfie.

Three days later, Jasmin Senior, Comcast’s intern program manager tweeted a very similar photo, featuring Comcast’s chief executive officer Brian Roberts. The one difference? We’ll let the selfie speak for itself.
