Towards the end of Tuesday’s CNN-hosted Democratic presidential debate, moderator Anderson Cooper asked the candidates which enemies they were proud to have made over the course of their political careers.
“In addition to the NRA, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the Iranians… probably the Republicans,” said Hillary Clinton.
The Democratic crowd in attendance cheered her choosing millions of Americans as enemy number one over Iran.
Twitter users took note of Clinton’s declaration.
HRC conclusion: screw unity. We hate them.

HRC considers the people in charge of Congress her enemies. Saying goodbye to bipartisanship before the first vote is cast. — Brian Faughnan (@BrianFaughnan) October 14, 2015
From a different perspective, advocates promoting appeasement of Iran and President Obama’s “nuclear deal” criticized Clinton for being too hawkish on national security.
Bragging about making an enemy of “the Iranians” is the sort of ham-fisted hawkery that Clinton needs to fix. Doesn’t impress anyone. — Matt Duss (@mattduss) October 14, 2015
