One of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top critics throughout the 2016 presidential election was former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
Flynn was an early surrogate of President Donald Trump and a frequent guest on Republican-leaning Fox News programs. At the 2016 Republican National Convention, Flynn led the crowd in chants of “lock her up,” due to allegations Clinton mishandled classified information via a private email server. Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., were also advocates of the “pizza-gate” theory, where people believed a family pizza parlor in Washington, D.C., was the home of a pedophile sex club run by Democrats.
On Monday night, Flynn learned that Hillary Clinton doesn’t forget.
Following Flynn’s late-night resignation from his post as National Security Advisor, Clinton’s official Twitter account subtweeted a longtime aid who seemed quite pleased at the embarrassment on the Trump camp.
“Dear Mike Flynn & Mike Flynn Jr., What goes around COMETS around. And given your pizza obsession… https://jobs.dominos.com/dominos-careers/ … xo Philippe,” Philippe Reines wrote.
His pun about “COMETS” is a direct reference to the “pizza-gate” theory, which took place at a pizzeria called Comet Ping Pong.
On her own account, Clinton made quick reference to Reines’ tweet.
“Philippe’s got his own way of saying things, but he has a point about the real consequences of fake news…” Clinton joked.
