Embarrassing tweets are the least of Hillary Clinton’s problems.
Nonetheless, the two-time failed presidential candidate was caught quietly deleting a tweet after she did her math wrong.
She was attempting to weigh in on the recent vote in the Senate to kill the filibuster.
Two members of her own party joined with Republicans to shoot down the power grab by Democrats.
Despite spending her entire adult life in politics, she still misstated the voting tally:
deleted, but the List comes for all, @HillaryClinton.

“Forty-eight Republicans and two Democrats are in the history books for using the filibuster to do what the filibuster does best: block the right of Americans, particularly Black Americans, to vote,” Clinton said in the deleted tweet.

More from Western Journal:
As just about anyone who’s followed the months-long dramatic Democratic efforts to put the federal government in control of state elections — a violation of the Constitution as well as common sense — knows, the voting breakdown was 50 Republicans with two Democrats voting to support the filibuster.
The two Democrats supporting the filibuster were West Virginia’s Joe Manchin and Arizona’s Kyrsten Sinema.
It was 46 Democrats who voted to kill it, along with two independents — Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Angus King of Maine — who caucus with the Democrats.
But hey, why should anyone expect a former first lady, senator, secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate to be careful about little details like that?
But it isn’t just Clinton’s math that was wrong. Her facts about the filibuster were too, along with the implication that the GOP is the party that’s traditionally opposed voting rights.
The reality is that it was only about five minutes ago that Democrats started talking about how “racist” the filibuster is.
