President Trump may be thousands of miles away attending the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, but that didn't stop him from getting into a Twitter fight on Friday with former Hillary Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta.
Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Disgraceful!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 7, 2017
Trump's tweet instigated Podesta to go on a lengthy Twitter rant.
He noted that he made a pit stop during a cross-country trip with his wife when "whack job POTUS" tweeted about him.
3/ Get a grip man, the Russians committed a crime when they stole my emails to help get you elected President.— John Podesta (@johnpodesta) July 7, 2017
4/ Maybe you might try to find a way to mention that to President Putin.— John Podesta (@johnpodesta) July 7, 2017
Podesta also took a moment to explain that he had nothing to do with the DNC, which drew intense attention during the 2016 presidential election after WikiLeaks published a trove of internal emails as well as those reportedly belonging to Podesta. The former campaign manager urged Trump to "get [his] head in the game" and to spend less time on Twitter.
6/ God only knows what you'll be raving about on twitter by the time we get to Utah.— John Podesta (@johnpodesta) July 7, 2017
