Hillary Clinton refuses to call terror by name in Barcelona tweet, critics immediately slam the hypocrisy

After a van rammed through a Barcelona crowd on Thursday, killing 13 people and injuring more than 100 more, even the Prime Minister of Spain called it “jihadi terrorism.” And it wasn’t much of a stretch, considering their backgrounds and the fact that ISIS even called the perpetrators “soldiers of the Islamic State.”

So when Hillary Clinton decided to address the issue with a tweet, would it have been all that much to ask her to be a bit more specific?

After all, she was REALLY specific after last weekend’s events in Charlottesville, VA…

Given Mrs. Clinton’s propensity towards specificity, even when all the facts hadn’t come in (like the violence that also came from the brick-throwing ‘alt-left’ antifa), would specifying ISLAMIC terrorism have been too hard?

Apparently so. But the fact wasn’t lost on many, who expressed their sentiments mercilessly via Twitter:
