It didn’t take Hillary Clinton long to lend a comment on the resignation of now former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Flynn, who became embroiled in controversy over the weekend due to reportedly supplying misinformation to the White House about talks he engaged in with Russia, resigned late Monday.
In response to the breaking news of Flynn’s resignation, Clinton published a tweet referencing a separate tweet posted by her longtime friend, Phillipe Reines.
Reines’ tweet remarks on the infamous Pizzagate conspiracy which had been spread, in part, by Flynn’s son, Michael G. Flynn.
The conspiracy surrounds Clinton and members of her campaign, as well as other Washington officials, being involved in a purported child-sex ring believed to be carried out clandestinely in the D.C.-area pizza shop, Comet Ping Pong.
Reines’ tweet also mocks both of the Flynns by suggesting that Domino’s Pizza may be hiring.
Dear Mike Flynn & Mike Flynn Jr.,
What goes around COMETS around.
And given your pizza obsession…https://t.co/rmyO7wyJKX

Flynn’s son had been a member of President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team but was fired in early December for spreading the rumor in a tweet reading:
“Until #Pizzagate proven to be false, it’ll remain a story,” and “The left seems to forget #PodestaEmails and the many ‘Coincidences’ tied to it.”
Philippe’s got his own way of saying things, but he has a point about the real consequences of fake news… https://t.co/a02sXiaHfp

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg has been named as acting national security adviser. Kellogg was formerly Flynn’s chief of staff on the National Security Council.
