Former senator and failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was on the wrong side of a social media exchange with an unlikely adversary this week – the “Taliban Public Relations Department.”
“Girls in Afghanistan should be going back to school tomorrow, but the Taliban is only allowing boys to be educated,” Clinton tweeted on Wedensday, adding the hashtag “#LetAfghanGirlsLearn.”
Clinton attached a GIF featuring the hashtag in giant bold font.
In response, the Taliban account responded with a vicious roast that invoked Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump, as wells as her husband Bill’s infamous extramarital affairs.
“You spent $700m in our country trying to teach women and girls that there are 140 different genders,” the Taliban tweeted. “No wonder you lost to the orange gangster. You left a huge mess behind in Afghanistan, just like your husband did with that dress.”
The Taliban tweet received far more likes than Clinton’s, surpassing the former First Lady’s post by a 5-to-1 ratio.
Clinton revealed during an interview with CBS’ Nora O’Donnell last year that she will never attempt to run for the presidency again.
She failed to secure the Democratic nomination in 2008, and lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.
In the interview, Clinton stated “going to do everything I can to make sure that we have a president that respects our democracy and the rule of law and upholds our institutions” in reference to her feud with Trump.
Given that Clinton responded, “no, no”” when asked if she would consider seeking the presidency, she does not appear to believe running against Trump would enable her to do everything she can to make sure that we have a president that respects our democracy and the rule of law and upholds our institutions.”
