Hillary Clinton Shredded for Reading Out Her Own Emails During Art Exhibition
Former Secretary of State under fire for making joke out serious matter
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced a backlash on Twitter after she posted a picture of herself reading her own printed emails during a visit to an art exhibit in Venice, Italy.
"Found my emails at the Venice Biennale. Someone alert the House GOP."
But the response was not one of warmth and humor, with many replies angrily describing it as a "disgusting" move.
One Twitter user said:
"You couldn’t be more tone deaf. What you did was illegal, you know it, but u are a part of the elite so don’t have to worry about consequences. I thank God every day you are not, nor will you ever be POTUS."
The exhibit at the Despar Teatro Italia, titled, “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails," exhibits a replica of the Oval Office's Resolute Desk along with 60,000 pages of Clinton's emails.
The artist behind the exhibit, Kenneth Goldsmith, said Clinton "spent an hour" reading her own emails while sharing pictures of her visit.
Clinton told local media that the exhibit "is further proof that nothing wrong or controversial can be found on these emails."
But Twitter didn't agree.
"Hillary should fire all of her advisors and anyone else who said this was a good idea," syndicated columnist Jonah Goldberg tweeted.

You’re a disgusting human being. “But at this point, what difference does it make. “ I thank God daily that you’re not my president. You can mock all you want but I will not forgot you leavings 4 Americans to die in Benghazi. You’re a crook and criminal. Karma will get you.— Rbf (@rbfinnwa) September 12, 2019

Hillary Clinton wakes up still pretending to be president.
It’s really nice to know that you take our national security as a joke.— Ryan Fournier (@RyanAFournier) September 12, 2019
YOUR negligence is what led to death of 4 Americans in Benghazi.
You are disgusting.
The curators wrote in a statement.
"During the tour, the former US Secretary of State had the opportunity to confront to the 30,000 emails that were sent and received from her private email account while serving the government between 2009 and 2013 — and the same ones that cost her the 2016 presidential election."
"Clinton proceeded to sit down at an exact replica of the Oval Office's Resolute Desk and leaf through her emails for nearly an hour."
Unsurprisingly, Clinton used the visit to push the failing Russia narrative, warning European countries to be vigilant of Russian attacks on their elections.
"Europeans should be very aware of the Russians (who) are involved in and trying to influence elections in all the democracies, and they conducted a sweeping and systematic attack on our elections," she said.
"So that was a big factor that had never been part of our system before."
In June, a report from the State Departement revealed that the ongoing probe into Hillary Clinton's email server misuse found 23 “violations” and 7 “infractions.”
The State Dept. has identified “multiple security incidents” involving at least 15 individuals in the handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails as part of an ongoing probe into her use of a private email server.
