Those with the slightest bit of class have long understood that a global pandemic was no time for partisan hackery.
This is, instead, a time in which the entire world must come together to harmoniously battle an invisible enemy. Our only weapon is social distancing, wherein we avoid as much contact as possible with other human beings in order to starve the coronavirus that is currently racing around the planet.
These are dire times, and that is why it is so unfathomable that Hillary Clinton is still attempting to insult the leader of the free world.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was blasted on social media Friday for her swipe against President Trump amid the growing coronavirus outbreak within the U.S.
Since the availability of testing kits has broadened in recent days, the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. has skyrocketed. On Thursday, the U.S. has reportedly outpaced both China and Italy with more than 97,000 reported cases.
Clinton took the latest developments as an opportunity to knock her former 2016 rival on Twitter.
“He did promise ‘America First,'” Clinton wrote, referring to one of the president’s oft-repeated campaign slogans.
The backlash was sudden and stern.
“Delete your account. This isn’t the time. This can’t be the new normal, where American tragedy is applauded for the sake of political opportunism,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, wrote.
“This sort of vicious celebratory tone about Americans getting sick & dying during a deadly global pandemic is just appalling,” Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy reacted.
“Hillary Clinton touting figures that are a result of Chinese disinformation to dunk on America and sick Americans is a pretty good reminder why she lost in 2016,” National Republican Senatorial Committee senior advisor Matt Whitlock said.
“This is beyond the pale,” Human Events managing editor Ian Miles Cheong tweeted.
Clinton has been continually thrusting herself into the spotlight as of late, providing the Democratic Party with one distraction after another at a time when they are already struggling for unity.
