The Republican Party sent a birthday present to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday.
Almost four years to the day she lost the 2016 election, the GOP had a surprise for Hillary.
And she wasn’t very happy.
Shortly after Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the high court by a 52-48 Senate vote, House Judiciary Committee Republicans sent a social media message to Hillary.
Amy Coney Barrett, confirmed. Happy Birthday, @HillaryClinton!

It was not well received.
Six minutes later, Hillary responded by urging Americans to “vote them out.”
Senate Republicans just pushed through a Supreme Court justice who will help them take away Americans' health care in the middle of a pandemic.
For them, this is victory.
Vote them out.

Hillary still hasn’t gotten over her shocking loss to President Donald Trump.
She recently appeared on a New York Times podcast where she complained that she was “born” to be the first woman president and it made her “sick” remembering her 2016 election loss.
She claimed that, under her leadership, the coronavirus pandemic would have been more manageable.
I was born for that. I mean, that’s why I knew I’d be a good president. I was ready for crises and emergencies, and I would have done what you see these women leaders doing.
You listen to the science. You bring in people in an open, inclusive way. You communicate constantly, you make the case by explaining why what you’re doing is in the long-term interests, not only of health, but also, of the economy.
Yeah, I have no doubt in my mind at all that I would have stepped up to that crisis.
Later, she said the idea of Trump being re-elected next Tuesday made her ill.
It makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we’d have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions, and damaging of our norms and our values, and lessening of our leadership, and the list goes on.
But there’s no doubt that he would do everything he could to attack and punish anyone who was, in his view, an adversary …
I don’t think he has any conscience. He’s obviously not a moral, truthful man. So he will do whatever he can to lift himself up. And remember, as I said, he lives with this specter of illegitimacy. He knows more about how he got really elected than we still do. Hopefully, we’ll learn more in the years ahead.
