Hillary Clinton Goes Tweet-to-Tweet with President Trump Over 'Covfefe'

Hillary Clinton has hit back at her former presidential rival Donald Trump after he branded her a "terrible candidate" on Twitter. Among them, Clinton said she inherited "nothing" from the Democratic Party and that the press had overreacted to her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
The flashback to the vitriolic 2016 campaign began earlier in the day when Clinton blamed numerous factors for her stunning election loss at Recode's Code Conference. Clinton's comments were also criticized by Tom Bonier, who was described by The Washington Post as a "top Democratic data type".
"They covered it like it was Pearl Harbor", she said in reference to The New York Times' coverage of the unexpected October revelation that Comey had chose to reopen the investigation into her email scandal. "And therefore I'm going to keep writing and keep talking and keep supporting people who are on the front lines of the resistance".
She also attacked the media for covering her e-mail controversy "like it was Pearl Harbour" and not following up on the Russian interference.
She has been increasingly explicit in alleging mischief on the part of the Russians and the Trump campaign, frequently pointing her finger directly at Trump himself.
At the conference, Clinton said her campaign's assertions that there was Russian meddling had been "basically shooed away".
A panel on CNN's "Inside Politics" Thursday poked fun at former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's series of excuses for her November election loss.
"We weren't in the same category as the other side", she said.
On Wednesday, people across the political spectrum took to the Internet to scoff, question, and analyze what President Trump meant when he tweeted an incoherent thought just past midnight - and left it hanging for several hours. In June 2016, Clinton posted a sassy tweet that quickly went viral, writing to Trump, "Delete your account".
"People in covfefe houses shouldn't throw covfefe", she tweeted in reference to Trump's early morning post about "negative press covfefe" that quickly went viral because of the odd word. "The campaign should look internally at its own data problems".
