Surprise, surprise: A man told Hillary Clinton to smile.
Pause for eye roll.
After NBC’s Commander-in-Chief Forum on Wednesday night, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus tweeted a few criticisms regarding Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s demeanor.
“@HillaryClinton was angry + defensive the entire time ― no smile and uncomfortable ― upset that she was caught wrongly sending our secrets,” Priebus tweeted.
Besides the fact that telling women to smile is the low-hanging fruit of policing women’s behavior, many pointed out that they don’t want a president smiling and laughing while discussing some very serious issues.
Twenty minutes after Priebus tweeted his remarks, Clinton shot back writing: “Actually, that’s just what taking the office of President seriously looks like.”
Priebus’ tweet received over 2,000 retweets. Clinton’s received over 10,000.
The best part of this entire interaction? The inevitable snarky Twitter responses to Priebus’ sexist tweet. Scroll below to see a few of the best reactions.
