Former election rivals President Trump and Hillary Clinton traded taunts on Twitter last night (May 31st), an exchange that was begun by the president. Earlier in the day, Clinton had appeared at Recode's CodeCon, where she talked, among other election-related issues, about fake stories on social media and said she'd inherited nothing from the Democratic National Committee after becoming the nominee, saying the DNC was practically bankrupt and had data that was, quote, "mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong."
Referring to Clinton's remarks, Trump tweeted, "Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC."
Clinton fired back by referring to his now viral tweet sent the night before that read: "Despite the negative press covfefe," and had the Internet overflowing with "covfefe" memes. (As well as spark the creation of this hilarious Pags ‘Watch Me (Whip/ Nae Nae)’ Parody.)
Clinton tweeted last night in response to Trump: "People in covfefe houses shouldn't throw covfefe." Clinton had joked about the "covfefe" tweet at the Recon event, saying it may have been, quote, "a hidden message to the Russians."
