(TheRedWire.com) – Social media users mocked Hillary Clinton over the unveiling of her U.S. Secretary of State portrait, which was officially unveiled this week.
Many users on X, formerly known as Twitter, blasted Clinton for receiving the honor while pointing out that during Clinton’s time serving as the head of the State Department, there was a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in four U.S. diplomats losing their lives.
On Tuesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken unveiled Clinton’s official portrait, which will be placed at the headquarters of the State Department in Foggy Bottom, Washington, D.C.
The portrait is of Clinton in a green dress, starting in front of a backdrop that shows the American flag. The audience applauded during the unveiling, while Clinton was visibly happy and laughing. The photo was later shared on X by the 67th Secretary of State, who spoke about the honor she received by having her portrait hung in the State Department.
In another post, she also recalled walking into the State Department as the Secretary of State for the first time and knowing that while this would be a challenging opportunity, it was also an opportunity to “do good.” Finally, she added that she was proud of the work they had completed during her time in the State Department.
However, many users on X, including Sean Davis, the co-founder of the Federalist, were quick to remind Clinton that the Benghazi tragedy had occurred under her tenure.
The House Judiciary Committee similarly posted a map of Benghazi as a response to Clinton’s post.
