Not surprisingly, bitter mockery ensued:

Before long, however, the hashtag was picked up by hundreds of Twitter users who seemed unaware of Clinton’s comments:
#WhatDifferenceDoesItMake this is supposed to be an easy class..

We suppose we could get angry that the hashtag went awry. But what difference does it make?
