Hillary Clinton Sent a Pointed Twitter After the Resignation of Trump Advisor Michael Flynn

1 minute read

Hillary Clinton on Tuesday issued a pointed response to the resignation of Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s national security adviser.

She shared a tweet by Philippe Reines, a former Clinton aide who played Trump during debate prep. “What goes around COMETS around,” Reines said, referencing a false conspiracy theory that Comet Ping Pong, a Washington D.C. pizzeria, was harboring a child sex abuse ring run by Clinton.

Flynn’s son, Michael Flynn Jr., spread the Comet Ping Pong conspiracy on social media and was fired from Trump’s team. When Flynn Sr. resigned on Monday, Reines suggested he look into a job at Domino’s — “given your pizza obsession.”

“Philippe’s got his own way of saying things, but he has a point about the real consequences of fake news…” Clinton said.
