Lobbing a shot at Hillary.

President Obama officially gave his endorsement to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a video released Thursday afternoon.

“I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office,” the president said of his former secretary of state. “She’s got the courage, the compassion and the heart to get the job done. I’m with her.”

Shortly after, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, tweeted out a response: “Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama — but nobody else does!”

Clinton’s counterpunch was swift. She fired back at Trump with a three-word tweet of her own: “Delete your account.”

That’s all she said, but before long her message had been retweeted nearly 200,000 times. According to her social media director, Alex Wall, it has been the most retweeted post of her campaign.

Supporters of Trump weren’t going to let it end there. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus garnered nearly 5,000 retweets for his rebuttal: “If anyone knows how to use a delete key, it’s you.”

Many on Twitter appreciated the reference to Clinton’s missing emails from her private server, which is the subject of an FBI investigation.


As did I. For the most part, Reince Priebus is just another useless piece of the establishment which is the bulk of the problem in Washington, but for once in his life, he got something right.

  1. I don’t have a lot of respect for Priebus, he’s not smart enough to have thought of that one himself – it WAS a good jab though and so true. We all know what Hillary will do, she’ll hire a staff of writers to produce her Tweets – she’d never dirty her fingertips on a keyboard long enough to compose 140 characters of pithy comment.


  2. @Hillary Clinton: You might want to re-think using Twitter in this campaign. You got owned, and there’s plenty more where that came from!


  3. I want to start hearing all about the dialogues between HillaryUs and her nemesis oBombUs from their first campaign for 2008.
    Really? There was support of either toward the other, or even niceties?


  4. I don’t follow Reince on twitter. Maybe I should! That was great!
