Like daughter like mother. The Clintons just seem to engage their mouth (or Twitter fingers) before their brains. Hillary is chiding lawmakers who “can’t take the heat” of town halls during this week’s congressional recess after a slew of events where Republicans faced hostile crowds on their home turf.
If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the…Congress.https://t.co/TEAXDPEPrt

Clinton urged Republican lawmakers to man up and face hostile town halls instead of avoiding them (you may remember that she avoided holding a press conference for 275 consecutive days while running for president).
“If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the … Congress,” Hillary tweeted with a link to a liberal newspaper editorial.
The editorial’s headline read: “Cowardly members of Congress should show up and face the public at town-hall meetings.”
Bizpac Review reports,
Some GOP lawmakers have been besieged by angry protesters at recent town halls around the country.
President Trump said he believes many of the “protesters” are paid operatives of the Democratic Party and are not organic, grassroots activists.
Twitter reacted to Hillary by reminding her that she couldn’t “take the heat” too well during her failed presidential run, Twitchy noted.

…and many more like these. You would think the Clintons would have learned by now that opening their mouths usually ends up with putting their feet in them.
