After weeks of being beset by rumors and allegations, the Donald Trump administration had its first major shakeup Monday night.

Twenty-six days into Trump’s presidency, national security adviser Michael Flynn tendered his resignation.

The move comes after a major story by the Washington Post broke, citing nine different officials, which found that Flynn had inappropriate contact with the Russian ambassador before Trump took office. 

Some people who may have been upset about that news were the staff of Hillary Clinton, whose campaign was damaged by Russian interference. 

One of her confidantes last night, Philippe Reines, gleefully tweeted in the aftermath, pointing Flynn and his son to job openings at Domino’s pizza. 

If you recall, Flynn’s son was one of the strident believers of the Pizzagate hoax, which alleged the Clinton campaign ran a child sex ring out of a D.C. pizza parlor. After reports of his tweets supporting the fake story broke, Flynn’s son resigned from Trump’s transition team

Now, that’s a good tweet, and it is also one that the calculated candidate Clinton wouldn’t touch in a million years.

But now, free from her focus group shackles, Clinton smashed the “Quote Tweet” button. 

If you are counting, this is now the second time in a week Clinton’s thrown shade via a good tweet
