Hillary Clinton indirectly shaded Donald Trump’s breath online.
Turns out Donald Trump might not have the best of breath, at least, that’s what Hillary Clinton seems to be insinuating anyway.
Canadian journalist Elizabeth Renzetti took to Twitter to praise the former U.S Secretary of State’s new political-mystery novel, “State of Terror.”

So has Clinton’s art imitated life? It sure seems like it.
