Hillary Clinton is a fan of Mean Girls and she knows how to fire off a quote from the popular teen comedy better than…
Well, better than President Donald Trump, that’s for sure.
The President has still not stopped talking about the 2016 election—an act which he still does not seem to realize only continues to cast doubt on the fact that he won—and his latest jab against Clinton came after she announced that she would not run against him in 2020.
The President tweeted:
“Aw-shucks, does that mean I won’t get to run against her again?”
“She will be sorely missed!”
“(Crooked) Hillary Clinton confirms she will not run in 2020, rules out a third bid for White House.” Aw-shucks, does that mean I won’t get to run against her again? She will be sorely missed!

Naturally, this opened up the president to criticism.
Like… leave Hillary alone, man.
2016 is over.
And you lost the popular vote.
In the process of evolution you were clearly left incomplete. Lacking any decency or grace simply makes you a miserable jerk.

And then Hillary Clinton weighed in.
She didn’t name any names.
But hey, she didn’t have to.
We hope you haven’t been living under a rock, because that scene from Mean Girls is hilarious.

You go, Hill Coco!

On Earth 2, we have a presidential twitter feed that looks like this, instead of the one we have.

Trump is desperately trying to figure out how to tweet out GIFs… that will take him 6 months at least

Some people even got in their own Mean Girls homage.
Donald Trump has a big lesbian crush on you!

He’s trying to make “Crooked” happen. Stop trying to make “Crooked” happen Donald.

Uh, I mean Donald!
I dunno, I think it’s really nice of trump to let Hillary live in his head rent free…

Tweets like this are a nice distraction from our lives in The Twilight Zone.
