On Thursday Hillary Clinton warned against the spread of “fake news,” which is a little like Bill issuing a BOLO for cheating husbands.

Bonus points: Hillary said this during a tribute to fellow “fake news” content provider, Harry “Romney didn’t pay taxes for ten years” Reid:

Hillary Clinton said Thursday on Capitol Hill that the epidemic of “fake news” represents a “danger” that must be “addressed quickly.”

“Let me just mention briefly one threat in particular that should concern all Americans,” Clinton said at an event honoring outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid. “Democrats, Republicans, and independents alike — especially those who serve in our Congress.”

Clinton said it was now clear the “epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda” could have “real-world consequences.”

The former Democratic presidential nominee’s comments came just days after police said an armed man showed up to a Washington, DC, pizzeria after he read online that it was tied to a child sex ring linked to the Clintons.

Since Clinton lost the election last month, some observers, particularly in the media, have suggested so-called “fake news” could have swayed certain voters who cast their ballots for President-elect Donald Trump.

She lost the election but not her shamelessness:

In that case, Hillary should be thrilled, because the result of last month’s election was a big step towards slowing the spread of “fake news” for public dissemination:
