Despite her painful slowness in providing evidence for the investigation into her emails, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wastes NO time when she sees a potential opportunity for political gain. No, even as the gunman was still on the loose this morning, Mrs. Clinton seized the tragic murder of two beautiful souls this morning to put the spotlight on her own agenda with this tweet:
Heartbroken and angry. We must act to stop gun violence, and we cannot wait any longer. Praying for the victims’ families in Virginia. -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 26, 2015
Unfortunately for the candidate, whose polls seem to be on a perpetual downward spiral these days, Mrs. Clinton’s lame — and tasteless — attempt to use the tragedy for her own gain may have backfired. The Twitterverse wasted no time of their own in skewering the candidate for her crass politicism.

Heart? You have none. Pray? To yourself doesn't count. Angry? What else is new. Guns? Give up your armed guards. https://t.co/AJMOA6z9u2— BrowningMachine (@BrowningMachine) August 26, 2015
Some called for the candidate to point out her specific policies that would have prevented such a tragedy from happening.
.@HillaryClinton Which of your proposals would have stopped today's shooting? Answer or admit you are exploiting these tragic deaths?— AG (@AG_Conservative) August 26, 2015
Of course, we can guess that any attempts at real policy suggestions from this leftie will take knee-jerk aim at our Second Amendment.
But perhaps before turning to new policy ideas, perhaps Mrs. Clinton should heed this idea from Dana Loesch:

Now, THAT’s an idea. How about starting with yourself, Mrs. Clinton?
And note to American voters: please, let’s vote someone into the White House who see times of tragedy as a time to UNITE rather than divide to further one’s own political agenda.
