Hillary Clinton's portrait unveiling causes a stir on social media

 September 28, 2023

An official portrait of Hillary Clinton was unveiled at the State Department on Tuesday - a salve for her wounded pride following her historic loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 election. 

The portrait's unveiling was accompanied by a breathless tribute from Antony Blinken, Biden's deeply unserious Secretary of State, who hailed Clinton as a pivotal figure in history.

But sharp observers on Twitter noted that her career in public service was anything but honorable - with some suggesting the glowing portrait should be traded for a mugshot.

Clinton for prison?

The group Republicans for National Renewal cut to the chase, tweeting, "You should be in jail."

Another user remarked that the "only thing missing" from the picture was Clinton giving a middle finger to the families of the Benghazi victims.

Madame Secretary....

Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State was overshadowed by her handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, which claimed the lives of four Americans - one of the lowest moments in the entire history of U.S. diplomacy.

She notoriously dismissed the scandal by uttering, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"

Her 2016 presidential campaign was clouded by her illegal use of a private e-mail server to store top secret, classified information and then trying to cover it up.

Clinton was never charged with a crime, but she has blamed former FBI director James Comey for causing her to lose by re-opening the probe days before the election.

Clinton speaks on her legacy....

President Trump and his allies have continued to cite the failure to charge Clinton as evidence of a double-tiered justice system, particularly as Biden's Justice Department pursues Trump on charges for classified documents.

In his remarks, Blinken whitewashed Clinton's dubious record - saying she reminded the world of "who America is, what we stand for."

Clinton has lately taken to gloating over the political persecution of her rival, who she claims is a threat to "democracy."

The bitter, power-hungry, twice-failed presidential candidate took another shot at Trump - who she tied with Putin - at the portrait unveiling, joking that she didn't want the picture completed "during the last administration."

Clinton also spoke about how she sees her own legacy, saying Biden is continuing her mission by "defending democracy in Ukraine" and promoting "human rights," particularly the rights of women and gays, around the world.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
