Ms. Magazine editor and Hillary Clinton super-fan, Carmen Rios, recently took to Twitter to rejoice over the imagined death of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders

In two since-deleted tweets, Rios said, “rejoice, for one day bernie sanders will retire or die” and that she was, “gonna build a monument for all the women who were right and erect it on top of Bernie sanders’ grave.”

Founded by Gloria Steinem and Letty Cottin Pogrebin in 1971, Ms. Magazine describes itself as a “landmark institution in both women’s rights and American journalism” and currently employs Rios to manage their online presence.

On April 26, Rios re-tweeted Scott Dworkin, co-founder of the anti-Trump super PAC Keep America Great, after the Democratic advisor filed an ethics complaint on Senator Richard Burr for joking about shooting Hillary Clinton.

In previous Tweets, Rios has said, “men are trash” and incoherently rambled about starting “a new political party that only runs women candidates” with the last name Clinton.
