Ever the class act.
Despite her painful slowness in providing evidence for the investigation into her emails, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wastes NO time when she sees a potential opportunity for political gain. No, even as the gunman was still on the loose this morning, Mrs. Clinton seized the tragic murder of two beautiful souls this morning to put the spotlight on her own agenda with this tweet:
Heartbroken and angry. We must act to stop gun violence, and we cannot wait any longer. Praying for the victims' families in Virginia. -H

Unfortunately for the candidate, whose polls seem to be on a perpetual downward spiral these days, Mrs. Clinton’s lame — and tasteless — attempt to use the tragedy for her own gain may have backfired. The Twitterverse wasted no time of their own in skewering the candidate for her crass politicism.
