Without even saying his name, the former secretary of state and Donald Trump’s former Democratic rival Hillary Clinton just brilliantly trolled him on Twitter. She retweeted a comment from Philippe Reines who served the Department of State as a senior advisor to Clinton. In his tweet, Reines epically noted that scandal-plagued Michael Flynn, who was just forced to resign as national security adviser, is the father of Michael Flynn Jr., who is a conspiracy theorist. Flynn’s son believes the thoroughly debunked conspiracy that Hillary Clinton and John Podesta ran a child sex-slave ring out of Comet Ping Pong, the DC pizza parlor. By the way, it’s supposed to be run out of Comet’s basement. I went there and they do not have a basement. The conspiracy is just that crazy.
Following Flynn’s resignation, Reines tweeted, “Dear Mike Flynn & Mike Flynn Jr., What goes around COMETS around. And given your pizza obsession..” then he included a job application to Domino’s Pizza.
Dear Mike Flynn & Mike Flynn Jr.,
What goes around COMETS around.
And given your pizza obsession…https://t.co/rmyO7wyJKX

Hillary weighed in writing, “Philippe’s got his own way of saying things, but he has a point about the real consequences of fake news…”

Another classic was just after Donald Trump’s executive order was blocked which banned citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States. It was a unanimous decision by three federal judges.
Hillary is not a Twitter addict like Donald Trump and when she tweets, it contains substance, not an incoherent message.
Elizabeth Warren was silenced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) when she objected to the appointment of Jeff Sessions as attorney general by reading a 1986 letter written by the wife of late civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Following that, Hillary tweeted:
“She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
So must we all.https://t.co/JXROGHPNkH
While Trump consistently called Clinton “crooked,” it was clearly an act of projection. Whatever he is doing wrong, he accuses others of doing without evidence. But as for Trump’s Flynn-gate scandal, there is evidence to support it. Trump was warned in January that Flynn could be blackmailed by Russia. The amateur president chose to ignore that warning.
