As we’ve noted many times here before, Hillary Clinton is definitely not the kind of Democrat to let a crisis go to waste.

There’s a photo circulating around on social media that shows the White House with the lights out. It looks dark, gloomy, and abandoned, like nobody’s home.

Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) shared it on her Twitter page Monday to feed into the media/Democrat-driven narrative that President Trump is so scared of what’s going on that he’s left the White House and hiding out in the bunker:

The photo has been widely circulated, and has become the source for many memes pushed by other prominent leftists, including David Axelrod, who is a former senior adviser to President Obama:

Clinton, the failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, also took part in the meme sharing with this attempted dunk. On the left is a photo of the White House lit up in rainbow colors to celebrate “Pride” month during the Obama administration:

To add even more insult to injury for Clinton, it was noted by a CNN reporter who is not exactly a fan of President Trump’s that it is routine practice for many of the lights at the White House to be turned off late at night (which, of course, is what most people do at their own homes):


All that said, many of us appreciate Hillary’s accidental presidential election-year reminder to America of just how things operated during the Obama-Biden years:

Final point: Hillary Clinton doesn’t really want to go there on leaders being MIA, does she? Does she? Because we totally can.
