Hillary Clinton Responds To Trump & Charlottesville Like A Bad-Ass Boss Lady (TWEETS)

-

The governor of Virginia declared a state of emergency in Charlottesville on Saturday, after white nationalists and counter protesters clashed regarding a plan to remove a statue of Confederate general, Robert E. Lee from a nearby park. The demonstration was dubbed the “largest gathering of white nationalists in recent years,” according to the New York Times.

Many have spoken out via social media to condemn the acts of violence and hatred, including former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Clinton took to Twitter to condemn the “incitement of hatred,” where she wrote:

‘My heart is in Charlottesville today, and with everyone made to feel unsafe in their country.

‘But the incitement of hatred that got us here is as real and condemnable as the white supremacists in our streets.’

‘Every minute we allow this to persist through tacit encouragement or inaction is a disgrace, & corrosive to our values.’

‘Now is the time for leaders to be strong in their words & deliberate in their actions.’

‘We will not step backward. If this is not who we are as Americans, let’s prove it.’

Based on the majority of responses from Americans, we’re all with the former first lady. Some of the best responses can be viewed below.
