Reince Priebus gets taken to the woodshed for commenting on Hillary’s ‘smile’

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was raked over the coals after attempting to criticize Hillary Clinton.

Priebus slammed the Democratic presidential nominee in a tweet on Wednesday because she seemed angry and did not smile during the “Commander in Chief” forum hosted by NBC.

But instead of inspiring additional criticism of Clinton, Priebus became the target as he was blasted on social media. The Clinton campaign responded to his tweet with one of their own.

Clinton’s communications director, Jennifer Palmieri, also slammed Priebus for his comment.

“The fact that the only criticism they could have for Hillary Clinton is that she didn’t smile enough at a very serious forum on our veterans, on our national security and on the job of commander in chief just tells you everything you need to know,” Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, said Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

The response from other Twitter users was not what Priebus was looking for, and not what his Party needed.

There were some occasional moments of clarity, however, and social media provided the platform for many to battle out their reactions to the comment by Priebus.
