Think what you may about his politics, but when Donald Trump speaks — or tweets — people pay attention.
The GOP nominee took the lead in touring flood-ravaged Louisiana on Friday while President Barack Obama continues his summer vacation on Martha’s Vineyard and rival Hillary Clinton … well, it’s not clear what she’s doing and her absence resulted in the hashtag #WheresHillary to begin trending on Twitter.
While Trump had a good idea what Hillary might be up to, once he weighed in the hashtag quickly became the hottest game in town:
Trump has made a practice out of questioning Clinton’s stamina, saying just last week, “She gives a short speech then she goes home, goes to sleep, she shows up two days later.”
And right on cue, after attending a rally in Cleveland on Wednesday, Clinton has nothing on the schedule until Sunday, a full 96 hours later.
Either way, on an otherwise slow news night, social media users had lots of fun mocking Hillary … here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
