Hillary Clinton tweeted congratulations to Obama-backed centrist Emmanuel Macron, saying, “defeat to those interfering with democracy.” She also threw shade at the media in the same tweet: “But the media says I can’t talk about that.”
Clinton tweeted: “Victory for Macron, for France, the EU, & the world. Defeat to those interfering w/democracy. (But the media says I can’t talk about that).”

Um, the shade to those in the media was epic. People like Josh Barro want her to remain quiet and go back into the woods. She is absolutely right to take on the media because, unlike the French press, they ran with the Russia/WikiLeaks stolen email dump as though it was all factual. They also gave Donald Trump a pass when repeatedly hammering Clinton over emails, Clinton Foundation and her near-fainting spell.
Clinton’s tweet has more likes 111,550 and counting, to Trump’s congratulatory tweet with 49,960.
