Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, joined Twitter on Monday to condemn prejudice and declare herself a “proud Muslim” in the wake of Ben Carson’s arguments against electing a Muslim president.

“You can be a proud American, a proud Muslim, and proudly serve this great country. Pride versus prejudice,” Mrs. Abedin, wife of disgraced former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, wrote in her first tweet from her verified account, receiving more than 2,000 retweets.

Her comment comes after her boss posted an excerpt of the U.S. Constitution in response to Mr. Carson’s argument that he wouldn’t support electing a Muslim president.

“Can a Muslim be President of the United States of America? In a word: Yes. Now let’s move on. -H,” Mrs. Clinton wrote.

One tweeter suggested the tweets weren’t authentic, saying, “$10 says the same person wrote both of these tweets and the persons name isn’t Hillary or Huma.”

“[Y]ou owe me $10,” Mrs. Abedin tweeted.

Her bio reads as follows: “Lucky mom, proud #HillaryForAmerica Dem, lover of fiction w/ no time to read it & of shows I can’t get enough of (Veep), devourer of french fries & ice cream.”
