Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is doing what she’s best at: shade-y GIFs on Twitter.

The Democratic hopeful took to the internet amid the latest Republican Presidential debate, as Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich faced off once more.

Cruz, Rubio and Trump have all increasingly rallied against equal marriage, with Senator Cruz claiming during last night’s debate that the Supreme Court ruling on the issue was “illegitimate”.

Cruz claimed: “That’s the way it has been for two centuries of our nation’s history until five unelected judges in an illegitimate and wrong decision decided to seize the authority over marriage and wrongfully tear down the marriage laws of all 50 states.

He added: “When it comes to core principles and convictions, when it comes to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, I can tell the men and women at home I will never compromise away your religious liberty.”

Though none of his equally-minded opponents made a retort, Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton put it better than we could.

Kasich, who is trailing in the race, broke from his opponents on LGBT rights yet again.

He said: “If you’re in the business of selling things, if you’re not going to sell to somebody you don’t agree with, today I’m not going to sell to somebody who’s gay, then tomorrow maybe I won’t sell to somebody who’s divorced.

“I try to be a man of faith every day as best as I can, and I try to focus in my faith on the dos and I think the don’ts will take care of themselves once I get the dos right, which is humility, and loving my enemy, and caring for my neighbour.

“But secondly, look, you’re in the commerce business, you want to sell somebody a cupcake, great. OK?

“But now if they ask you to participate in something you really don’t like, that’s a whole ‘nother issue, OK? Another issue.

“Here’s what I’d like to see happen. The Supreme Court ruled, I don’t agree with the ruling. I’m of favor of marriage between — you know, traditional marriage, a man and a woman.

“What I hope was going to happen after the Supreme Court ruling is things would settle down.”
