Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s long time aide and advisor, has taken to Twitter for the first time, solely to malign a black American presidential candidate, Dr. Ben Carson, for daring to expose the ugly truth about Islam being incompatible with the U.S. Constitution – unleashing a torrent of responses – pro and con.
“Couldn’t agree more…. Welcome to Twitter,” Hillary Clinton tweeted back.
NY Post Rival Carly Fiorina said Carson was “wrong” to say a Muslim shouldn’t be president. A Ben Carson super PAC reports that its fund-raising has spiked since his anti-Muslim comments.
A mainstay at Clinton’s side, Abedin is often seen in the background but rarely heard. She has been widely condemned in Congress for her deep, familial ties to the notoriously radical Muslim Brotherhood.
Her first jab at a GOP presidential candidate drew a feverish response — topping more than 2,700 retweets by Tuesday evening and 3,300 favorites.
While there were well-wishers who joined Clinton, there were also numerous critics.
“Sharia law is incompatible with American principles and values,” wrote @GayPatriot above a picture of men being hanged.
“Everything I know about muslims I learned on 9/11/01,” added @DissidentBiker.
