Arguably, Hillary Clinton derailed her 2016 presidential campaign when she reportedly destroyed thousands of emails unlawfully sent from a private server during her time as Secretary of State. Then-candidate Donald Trump ruthlessly tore into her for violating national security, sparking a nationwide outcry and the on-again, off-again viral #ButHerEmail hashtag. Ever the opportunist, Hillary decided to use Trump’s words to cash in on the August 8 FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago.
The failed Democratic nominee took to her Twitter account the morning after the FBI stunt. She posted an obviously dated image of herself promoting the sale of a dreary-looking “unstructured dad hat” with pink embroidered lettering shouting out “but her emails” in all caps.
According to Clinton’s tweet and her online market, the sales proceeds go to Onward Together, a non-profit political action group founded by Hillary and former Democratic National Committee head Howard Dean in 2017 from the ashes of her presidential campaign.
Onward Together’s website paints a twisted picture of radical leftists struggling to remain relevant after Clinton’s blistering 2016 defeat. The group says it promotes progressive values and aims to push back against “divisiveness” and “stand up” for a “more inclusive America.”
Yet, in the following sentence, the site brags about the extremely controversial and divisive Women’s March. Held the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the effort sparked national outrage at a time when Americans were supposed to come together and support the incoming presidential administration.
What do you think about Hillary Clinton’s effort to exploit the potentially criminal behavior of the FBI?
