Republicans in the House Judiciary Committee have trolled Hillary Clinton on her birthday and people aren’t happy about it.
Following Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, the House Judiciary GOP Twitter account insincerely wished Clinton a happy birthday.
They wrote: “Amy Coney Barrett, confirmed. Happy Birthday, @HillaryClinton!”
Amy Coney Barrett, confirmed. Happy Birthday, @HillaryClinton! — House Judiciary GOP (@House Judiciary GOP)
Many were quick to brand this attempt at trolling Clinton “sick” and “juvenile".
