Hillary Clinton congratulated Emmanuel Macron on winning the French presidential election on Sunday, and snuck in a jab at the media while she was at it.
“Victory for Macron, for France, the EU, & the world. Defeat to those interfering w/democracy. (But the media says I can’t talk about that),” Clinton said on Twitter.
Earlier this week, some news outlets criticised Clinton for saying Russian interference was partially to blame for her loss in last year’s election against Donald Trump.
Macron was the target of a similar cyberattack on Friday, throwing the results of the election into uncertainty two days before voters cast their ballots.
The attack didn’t appear to swing the contest, however. With nearly all of the votes counted, the centrist was on his way to a commanding victory over far-right nationalist Marine Le Pen.
Victory for Macron, for France, the EU, & the world.
