-and even Anthony Weiner chimes in: ‘too late for some of us’
President Obama’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton today was the catalyst for quite the Twitter feud between the newly-minted Democratic nominee and Donald Trump.
Clinton threw some shade at the presumptive Republican nominee – sassing at him with a commonly used meme – motivating disgraced ex-congressman Anthony Weiner and Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committe, to jump in.
It all started with a very typical Trump tweet: ‘Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama – but nobody else does,’ The Donald wrote.
Clinton, whose usual strategy is to stay above the fray, coolly responded with a trendy online meme.‘Delete your account,’ her Twitter account read.
From there, Republicans pounced, bringing up her private email account.
‘How long did it take your staff of 832 people to think that up – and where are your 33,000 emails you deleted,’ Trump responded.
The presumptive Republican nominee was referring to how Clinton deleted all of the emails that she deemed ‘personal’ before handing the rest over for government transparency, a move that raised eyebrows, especially among congressional Republicans.
It was then Priebus’ turn to join the fun.
‘If anyone knows how to use a delete key, it’s you,’ the RNC chairman wrote.
Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former congressman married to Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin, and whose political downfall started after he was outed for sending lewd tweets, had his own contribution to the debate.
While maybe not as quick as today’s Twitter war erupted, the Democratic primary is hurriedly being rushed to a close.
It was only this Saturday that Clinton’s Democratic rival Bernie Sanders was talking about a ‘contested convention’ and flipping superdelegate support.
Then, on Monday, the Associated Press, followed by other news networks said Clinton had enough delegates – when both pledged delegates and superdelegates were counted – to be the nominee.
On Tuesday she spoke before supporters in Brooklyn New York having just won New Jersey and then two other states. She then had enough pledged delegates to claim a majority.
Early Wednesday morning the race in California, where Sanders drained his remaining resources, was called for Clinton too.
On Tuesday night the White House applauded her for earning enough delegates to become the first female major party nominee, Obama would also meet with Sanders Thursday at the White House, a get together that was made at the senator’s request.
Then today in rapid fire succession, Obama met with Sanders, Sanders said he was staying in, but likely only through next Tuesday’s primary in Washington, D.C.
The president then threw his support to Clinton in a recorded web video.
‘For more than a year now, across thousands of miles and all 50 states, tens of millions of Americans have made their voices heard,’ Obama said.
‘Today, I just want to add mine,’ the president, who is eager to campaign with his party’s nominee, said.
And, with that, the Twitter storm began.
The online conversation was a preview of the attacks between the two candidates that are expected to lay ahead.
It was last week in California, that Clinton seemed to find a stronger voice against Trump.
She needled him for many of his foreign policy ideas
