Twitter ERUPTS With Fury After Reince Priebus Attacks Hillary’s Looks (TWEETS)

After the NBC Commander-In-Chief forum, Republicans took to social media to criticize Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. For all the valid issues they could criticize her for — her email issues, foreign policy, Benghazi, veteran care, gun control, terrorism, Libya — Reince Priebus blasted Clinton for not smiling enough in what was not just a patronizing tweet, but a misogynistic one as well.

Priebus tweeted:

@HillaryClinton was angry + defensive the entire time – no smile and uncomfortable – upset that she was caught wrongly sending our secrets.’

Not smiling enough. With all the problems in America, Priebus is worried Clinton is not smiling enough. According to CNN, Clinton responded quickly to Priebus’ tweet. She tweeted:

‘Actually, that’s just what taking the office of President seriously looks like.’

During a press conference, The Huffington Post reported that Clinton also threw a left hook at Trump, telling reporters, “I don’t take anything seriously that comes from the RNC.” Boom.

Along with having to deal with Matt Lauer’s treatment, Clinton is now expected to smile more, while talking about a serious matter such as foreign policy. Next, they’ll criticize her for not having the pot roast ready in time for the forum. She also threw a jab at Trump for praising Russian President Vladimir Putin saying, “Maybe he did it with a smile, and I guess the RNC would have liked that.”

This criticism comes at a time when Clinton’s appearance is already criticized sharply by Republicans and is considered part of the issues. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough once tweeted:

‘Smile. You just had a big night #PrimaryDay’

Brit Hume once threw in his two cents criticizing her voice:

‘Hillary having a big night in the primaries. So she’s shouting angrily in her victory speech. Supporters loving it. What’s she mad at?’

Howard Kurtz:

‘Hillary shouting her speech. She has the floor; a more conversational tone might be better for connecting with folks at home.’

Earlier this week, Trump also made comments about Clinton’s appearance saying she doesn’t have “a presidential look,” and she needs “a presidential look.” Donald would know, since spray-tan orange is totally part of a presidential look.

Clinton is well aware of the double standard and has said in the past to supporters:

‘I’m always being told that when I talk to you I should talk in a very calm and measured voice, and I should not get carried away with my intense feelings about what is going on in the country, so I do try to remind myself of that and try to lower the volume when I remember.

‘But, I am so worried about our country and what can happen if we don’t band together and elect a president that can represent all of America.’

Frankly however, if Clinton always spoke calmly and in a measured manner, Republicans would then accuse her of not caring enough for the country. The line Clinton has to walk is a fine line that is thinner than a hair. It’s something Clinton will never be able to do correctly to please her male counterparts on the other side of the political spectrum.

Twitter has responded to Priebus’ asinine remark with vengeance though. The hashtag #PresidentialFace is now trending on Twitter along with epic tweets that put Priebus, Trump, and Trump’s face in their place.

#PresidentialFace requires no smiling for anyone EVER.’

‘What’s all this nonsense about #PresidentialFace? Really, @Reince?’

@Reince Don’t EVER question a lady who chooses not to smile. #PresidentialFace

‘Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, anticipating #PresidentialFace long before women could vote’

‘This is Oliver’s #PresidentialFace He’s not smiling because he thinks DJT is a moron.’
