Hillary Clinton may not be the president of the United States, but that didn’t stop the GOP – which currently controls the Congress and the presidency, by the way – from asking her to provide ideas for reforming the current healthcare system. On Wednesday, July 5, the official GOP Twitter account uploaded a clip of Clinton discussing the “broken” Affordable Care Act and asked the former secretary of state what exactly her plan was to fix it. Not only did Clinton respond in rapid time, but she also delivered a nine-point presentation via her website which lists out all the ways she intended to address the healthcare issue and “not kick 23 [million people] off their coverage” had she won the 2016 presidential election.
Keep reading to see the initial tweet that started it all and read Clinton’s epic response that will make you say, “Checkmate!”

Thank you for tweeting about caring for our healthcare and not wrestling GIFs. This is why you were the most popular based on votes.
