Hillary Clinton has been very vocal since the Republican presidential campaigns began, which is why Clinton’s live tweets during the debates are everything. During the last few debates, the Republican candidates were all about attacking Hillary head on. During October’s debate, she tweeted a GIF of herself literally brushing her shoulders off during a Benghazi hearing in response to Republican comments about her positions. She’s really at her best when she taps into herself as a meme and starts to look like she’s having a little fun.
But Clinton’s responses to the election spectacle are always measured, smart, and stick to the issues. It’s like she refuses to play the media game, which on some level, you have to respect. She wants to be approachable and the more the Republican candidates start spiraling out of control and spouting impossible plans for fighting ISIS and blocking Muslims from entering the country, the easier Hillary is to like. Earlier this fall, she was on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon teasing about Trump’s tendency to lecture and she even showed up on Saturday Night Live to make fun of herself. It usually works in her favor, too.
So what did she tweet during CNN's GOP debate Tuesday?
She started off with a little pop quiz:
Who said it: Trump or not Trump? Text QUIZ to 47246 to take the quiz. pic.twitter.com/S7o6wK1oFl— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) December 16, 2015
Then she sort of sided with Jeb Bush about "serious" candidates:
We need serious leadership to keep us safe. Hateful words and extreme proposals that go against our values aren't serious. #GOPdebate— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) December 16, 2015
Called the Candidates On Their Facts
The candidates on stage talk tough—but they won't even support legislation preventing suspected terrorists from getting guns. #GOPdebate— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) December 16, 2015
And Fought Them On Immigration
And then finished it out with a call to action.
We cannot let Trump or any of the Republican candidates win the White House. Add your name if you agree: https://t.co/Wbrs7RMSSF— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) December 16, 2015
