Hillary Clinton mocked on 4th anniversary of ‘future prez’ tweet as Internet marks ‘Justice Amy Barrett Day’

As has become the tradition for the last four years, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was mocked for tweeting, “Happy birthday to this future president” on October 26, 2016, days before she lost to President Donald Trump in the election.

Twitter kept up the tradition of poking fun at the ex-first lady this year too by hunting down screenshots of her old tweet that has since been deleted and mocking her for how badly the tweet has aged. The original tweet had the infamous caption along with a black and white photo of Clinton from her childhood. The former Democratic presidential nominee has taken the mockery in her stride as this year too she chose to post a similar photo of her past self on the occasion of her birthday, just days away from the upcoming Election Day, which read, “It’s my birthday. Here’s my one wish: that you reach out to one person in your life who may not vote this year and encourage them to turn out for Biden-Harris. All of us have more power than we know.”


However, people just could not seem to get past her tweet from four years back. “Aww… happy birthday to this future Pres- oh, wait. BWAAAAAAAAAH HA HA HA HA HA! Oh, and I already voted early. It was for Trump. Again. Maybe you can whine about how you should have been President for another four years. That never gets old, right?” one wrote, while a second said, “I just told mum about the Hillary “Happy Birthday to this Future President” tweet of 4 years back. She called it her ‘Titanic’ moment. Hubris kills.” A third commented, “‘Happy Birthday to this future president’ is the gift that keeps on giving. Thanks for that one, Hil!” “Separate it from the context of the shitty result in 2016 and that ‘happy birthday to this future president’ tweet is so flagrant. imagine having two decent job interviews and tweeting ‘happy birthday to this future director!’ and then not getting the job. I’d hide forever,” one person remarked.

There were also those who could not help but marvel at the irony of the fact that Amy Coney Barrett, a judge nominated by Trump to fill the seat of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was confirmed and sworn into oath on the same day as Clinton’s birthday. “Happy birthday to not this future president! But have an even more happy Justice Amy Coney Barrett day!” one wrote, while another commented, “Happy birthday to this future president. Hahahahaha! Tonight’s supreme court appointment will be your b-day gift to America!”







The mocking came just a day after Clinton did a New York Times’ Sway podcast where she admitted that the possibility of Trump getting another four years in office made her “sick” to her stomach. “I can’t entertain the idea of him winning, so let’s just preface it by that,” Clinton said. When she was pressed to explain her stance, she said, “Well, because it makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we’d have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions, and damaging of our norms and our values, and lessening of our leadership, and the list goes on.”
