Cillizza was rightly raked over the coals for that hot take, but today, he’s back at it. He’s just gotta milk that mess for all it’s worth:

Roughly 24 hours later, that half-joke, half-imagine-if tweet had generated more than 2,300 likes and 1,500 comments.
That shouldn’t have surprised me. Because the Clinton tweet combined two things that people have very strong opinions about: Hillary Clinton and me.
Or maybe it got all those comments because it was stupid. And maybe you should’ve learned from Hillary Clinton’s mistakes and quit while you were behind. Because today, you’re getting panned from all sides all over again:
"The notion of Clinton running again" is not what we found ridiculous. It was a. the idea she'd settle for a such a small-time state office and b. your overt fanboying. https://t.co/5hffFALxvV

This is trash. You should feel bad for publishing it

This is really not very funny and it also makes you look really misogynistic.

Good god, that’s embarrassing even for you.

Seriously? …Still, with the misogynistic crap?
So, we're committed not to learn and grow from 2016? Things worked out so well that we're sticking with that?

Things like this are why I don't take your reporting seriously.
