Hillary Clinton's Response to Michael Flynn's Resignation

Oh Yes She Did: Hillary Clinton Responds to Michael Flynn's Resignation in 1 Glorious Tweet

After Michael Flynn's official resignation as Donald Trump's national security adviser on Monday, Feb. 13, Hillary Clinton offered her thoughts on the situation on Twitter.

To fully appreciate the tweet, allow us to remind you of the tense history between Clinton and Flynn.

Flynn was a pretty harsh Clinton critic during her presidential campaign, often putting her on blast for her private email server. His son, Michael Flynn, Jr., took part in spreading fake rumors about how Clinton was supposedly running a child sex ring inside a pizza joint called Comet Ping Pong — a conspiracy theory aptly known as Pizzagate. The former national security adviser also regularly promoted falsities on his own social media, though he later deleted a few of the tweets.

Now that Flynn has resigned, Clinton is proving that she has the final word on the made-up pizza restaurant scandal. On Feb. 13, she retweeted the above tweet from Phillippe Reines, who was her senior adviser during her secretary of state days. His tweet directly called out the Flynns and linked to the career page of Dominos as an ode to their "pizza obsession."

Clinton added her own two cents in the retweet, writing "He has a point about the real consequences of fake news . . . "

This isn't the first time the former presidential candidate has thrown considerable shade at Trump's administration, as she subtly praised the travel ban injunction without using even a single word.
