Even though there have been murmurings of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton possibly running for mayor of New York City, she seemingly faded into obscurity after her shocking loss in November. And honestly, who could blame her? She deserved a long rest after such a tumultuous election season.
Occasionally, however, when she’s had enough of turning a blind eye to Trump’s crap, Clinton will take to Twitter to call the president out. And when she does, it’s usually pretty hilarious.
Philippe Reines, Clinton’s senior advisor during her tenure as head of the State Department, tweeted on Friday:
‘Russians spy. Health Care is complicated. Diplomacy is exhausting. Who knew?’
Health Care is complicated.
Diplomacy is exhausting.

Of course, he’s referring to the fact we’ve got Russian spies all up in our government. He’s also referring to last month when President Donald Trump exclaimed that he never knew healthcare could be so complicated saying, “Now, I have to tell you, it’s an unbelievably complex subject. Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.”
Furthermore, when he refers to diplomacy being exhausting, he’s referring to the fact current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cut his trip to South Korea short due to “fatigue.”
In response to Reines’ tweet, Clinton retweeted it and simply, yet poignantly (and hilariously), wrote:
‘Things I learned today.’

Of course that’s sarcasm from a woman we’ve all accused of having no sense of humor. The fact is, she does know plenty about health care and diplomacy. Back in 1993, Hillary was the chair of the task force in coming up with the Health Security Act, which was her own attempt at giving Americans universal health care. Though the bill was defeated, Clinton did help bring health insurance for children when she had a role in creating the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.
Trump and his team have plenty to learn about government work being hard. Perhaps they could ask for Clinton’s advice on handling the fatigue.
