Hillary Clinton's Super Bowl tweet draws avalanche of retweets

The Sideshow

Hillary Clinton offered up a rare (and humorous) tweet  during Sunday's Super Bowl.

The former secretary of state and possible 2016 presidential candidate tweeted a joke about the drubbing that Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos were taking at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks during the big game.

The tweet drew over 40,000 retweets (at the time of publish) and was favorited more than 26,000 times. She posted the jab at Fox when the Broncos had yet to score a point.

Before the game, President Barack Obama sat down for an interview with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly where the two sparred about HealthCare.gov and the IRS scandal from 2013. On those problems, Obama said, "These kind of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them."
