VIRAL: This photo has done the rounds on social media

JUST DAYS after House Speaker Paul Ryan posted a selfie with Capitol Hill interns, which was criticised for its lack of diversity, the Democratic Capitol Hill interns have responded with a selfie of their own.

And this one is very different precisely because of its diversity.

The selfie from Audra Jackson, an intern working for Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, a Texas Democrat, is now earning praise for showing a group of interns as diverse as the country they’re helping their bosses represent in Congress.
“Today interns from Democratic Congressional offices wanted to show America how diverse the future of our party is,” Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas posted on Facebook, along with the photo.
