Public outrage forced Hillary Clinton to delay her campaign ads on the Weather Channel during Hurricane Matthew.
Hillary was planning on spending $63 on campaign ads during the catastrophe.

So Hillary was running ads on the Weather Channel during a hurricane. Never let a crisis go to waste, right Hillary?

The Hillary Clinton campaign requested Thursday that The Weather Channel delay airing its campaign ads until Hurricane Matthew passes.
“Earlier in the week we made changes to our TV ad reservations across hundreds of stations in several battleground states including Florida,” Jesse Ferguson, a Clinton spokesman, said. “Less than 1% of those changes included The Weather Channel. We have requested that stations in Florida delay any of those ads on the Weather Channel until after the storm passes.”
Clinton’s decision to air ads on The Weather Channel as attention shifted from the 2016 campaign to the approaching hurricane sparked some criticism from Republicans, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
WHAT IF she donated $63,000 to hurricane relief instead of spending $63,000 on TV ads on the weather channel? https://t.co/WtMHh0884F
