Earlier this week, former President Bill Clinton viciously attacked President-elect Donald J. Trump, claiming that the Republican only knew how to appeal to so-called “angry white men.”
Clinton made his comments to the editor of the Bedford-Pound Ridge Record Review, a small paper in New York, and attacked the incoming president, saying he “didn’t know much” but “[o]ne thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him.”
Rather than simply take Clinton’s attack lying down, the incoming president fired off a blistering tweet that used the former president’s words against him:
Bill Clinton stated that I called him after the election. Wrong, he called me (with a very nice congratulations). He “doesn’t know much” …

During the same interview, Clinton continued to deflect from the real reasons his wife lost the presidential election, instead maintaining that “James Comey cost her the election. We were seven percentage points up” in the national polls in the weeks leading up to the election.
Bill Clinton, and many other Democrats and liberal activists, have so far failed to acknowledge that Hillary Clinton was a flawed candidate who failed to resonate with the American people. Instead, he would rather blame Hillary’s loss on outside influences, like FBI Director James Comey.
Kudos to President-elect Trump for calling out Bill Clinton’s lies about the election, and pointing out that it is the former president who actually “doesn’t know much” about what is going on around him!
