Either Hillary Clinton has a weird sense of humor, or she’s awfully uptight.
In a tweet posted Sunday morning, the failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee and former secretary of state complained to Habsro about the approved words list for its game Scrabble. And in doing so, she took some shots at President Donald Trump and his attorney Rudy Giuliani.
“Earlier this month, Scrabble updated its list of approved words for game play for the first time in four years (‘ivesssapology’ and ‘covfefe’ were not among them),” she wrote.
“But those changes aren’t yet reflected in the Scrabble app. ? Where are we on this, @Hasbro?”
Earlier this month, Scrabble updated its list of approved words for game play for the first time in four years (“ivesssapology” and “covfefe” were not among them).
But those changes aren’t yet reflected in the Scrabble app. ?
Where are we on this, @Hasbro? ?♀️

“Ivesssapology” meanwhile is a typo Giuliani accidentally tweeted Friday.
Clinton was obviously making fun of the two in the first part of her tweet. What’s not so clear is why she was harping on Hasbro about its approved words list? Like one Twitter user wrote, “Who cares!?”
Hillary. Have you lost what little mind you had left. Who cares about scrabble approved words. Idle chatter

That said, was she trying to be funny? Or is she seriously that uptight? Or was she just following in the in the footsteps of Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris by showcasing how much of a normal, everyday person she allegedly happens to be …
These are just a few of the questions on social media users’ minds:
why are you still here

Why are you even talking #BUTCHER OF BENGHAZI

Why is she still talking?
And an even better question is why are people still listening?
She is politically irrelevant.
It’s kinda sad how she doesn’t know that yet & is still trying anything she can to keep her name in the news.

The latter tweet was in reference to Clinton’s habit of spending virtually every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year whining about “sexism.”
Her latest whine happened Friday, when she accused the president of being a sexist because he’d shared a NON-doctored video of Pelosi stammering through her words.
“The president and his cronies have been running around spreading a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi,” she said at a event in Texas. “Now, it is sexist trash. But, it is also a sign that Trump is running scared.”
The video she referenced was originally shared by Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs and later re-shared by the president. Clinton and her media allies have falsely claimed the video was “doctored,” but in reality, it was just a montage of Pelosi stammering through speeches.
What’s notable is that Clinton has never once complained about the 1,000+ montages of Trump that can be found everywhere on the Internet, including on Twitter:

There’s even a doctored video of him speaking as if he’s drunk:

Here’s a word that’s definitely on Scrabble’s approved words list: HYPOCRISY.
Social media pointed out some other words that may or may not be in the list:
