Hillary Clinton’s Use Of Sandy Hook Victims As Cynical Stage Props Backfires

posted on April 9, 2016

After losing her sixth presidential primary to Bernie Sanders this week in Wisconsin—by a hefty 13 percentage points—Hillary Clinton angrily lashed out at Sanders, trying to smear him with the tears and tragedy of Newtown, Conn., and claiming Sanders “would place gun manufacturers’ rights ... against the parents of the children killed at Sandy Hook.” 

But if social media is to be believed, Clinton’s Twitter game “is as disastrous as her foreign policy,” and her cynical ploy has even turned supporters against her. In a storm of tweets, current and former supporters called on Clinton for her insensitivity, her cynicism and her hypocrisy in calling to ban guns for lawful U.S. citizens even while cutting multi-billion-dollar arms deals with Middle Eastern regimes. 

As one Twitter user quipped, “Bernie fairly takes you to task on your record, you condemn his ‘tone,’ then blame him for Sandy Hook. Class.”
