While Team Hillary was preoccupied with putting out the fire, the rest of America wanted to roast a few marshmallows.
Hillary Clinton rarely goes off message, but one exception is when longtime aide Huma Abedin is being targeted.
The Clinton campaign fired back hard Friday evening after Republican front-runner Donald Trump took a shot at Abedin and her husband, Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former New York congressman.
Trump just roasted ‘perv, sleazebag’ Anthony Weiner to everyone’s delight! ‘Bing bing bing’
At a Boston fundraiser earlier in the day, Trump called Weiner a “perv” and said he was a “bad guy.” He also suggested that Abedin shared classified information with her husband.
Nick Merrill, Clinton’s traveling press secretary, ripped into the real estate magnate on social media, condemning Trump’s remarks:

A scan of Merrill’s Twitter feed shows that not only does Trump dominate the polls, his supporters also dominate social media.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
