The Coronavirus crisis has brought out the worst in some people.
Hillary Clinton is the latest example. Her hatred of Trump is so profound, that she recently made a sick ‘joke’ on Twitter about the crisis which was obviously meant to be a dig at the president.
FOX News reports:
Hillary Clinton under fire for joke about US leading in virus cases: Trump ‘did promise America First’
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was blasted on social media Friday for her swipe against President Trump amid the growing coronavirus outbreak within the U.S.
Since the availability of testing kits has broadened in recent days, the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. has skyrocketed. On Thursday, the U.S. has reportedly outpaced both China and Italy with more than 97,000 reported cases.
Clinton took the latest developments as an opportunity to knock her former 2016 rival on Twitter.
“He did promise ‘America First,'” Clinton wrote, referring to one of the president’s oft-repeated campaign slogans.

Here is a sample of the blow back she has received:
Delete your account. This isn’t the time. This can’t be the new normal, where American tragedy is applauded for the sake of political opportunism. https://t.co/7aYatlS8jV

This sort of vicious celebratory tone about Americans getting sick & dying during a deadly global pandemic is just appalling. https://t.co/o2IBWfnmYK

Hillary Clinton touting figures that are a result of Chinese disinformation to dunk on America and sick Americans is a pretty good reminder why she lost in 2016. https://t.co/wEutVo1Sbu

Hillary boasting the suffering and deaths of hundreds of Americans just to “own Drumpf.” Despicable. https://t.co/FHvqzTanF0

How did she think it was acceptable to say such a thing?
