(RightWing.org) – The international community and US are outraged after learning Vladimir Putin’s rival, Alexei Navalny, was poisoned by the nerve agent Novichok. The chemical is one the Russians have used before. While leaders reacted to the news, one twice-failed presidential candidate decided to weigh in and shove her foot firmly in her mouth.
On September 3, Hillary Clinton slammed President Donald Trump for his administration’s failure to speak out like the rest of the world.
It's been confirmed that Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned with the same nerve agent used on other Putin critics.
Meanwhile, Trump does nothing.
We deserve leaders who are strong enough to stand up to Putin and defend democracy.https://t.co/wIByjj5K57

There’s only one problem with her righteous indignation: she got her facts wrong.
The day before Clinton tweeted about the poisoning, the National Security Council (NSC) issued a response to the news and condemned the crime. The council also said it was working with US allies to “hold those in Russia accountable.”
(1 of 3) “The United States is deeply troubled by the results released today. Alexei Navalny’s poisoning is completely reprehensible. Russia has used the chemical nerve agent Novichok in the past.
— NSC (@WHNSC) September 2, 2020
Maybe Hillary is confused because she never actually convinced enough people she was a good enough human being to be elected president, but the NSC is part of the executive branch. The chair of the council is President Donald Trump. When the group responded, the commander-in-chief was responding. Perhaps she should issue an apology. Just don’t hold your breath waiting on that…
