Hillary Clinton gave an interview today at Code Conference, and while she touched on a number of subjects during her conversation with hosts Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, she was inevitably asked why she thought she lost the election. Hillary went on to explain that meddling from the Russian government and the FBI Director changed the nature of the race. That led Trump to angrily explode on Twitter – prompting Hillary to fire back at him.
First came Donald Trump’s predictably angry tweet in which he dusted off his old “Crooked Hillary” insult while mischaracterizing what Hillary had actually said during her interview:
Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC.

But that merely led Hillary Clinton to hit back at Donald Trump with his own recent infamous typo:
People in covfefe houses shouldn't throw covfefe. https://t.co/M7oK5Z6qwF

Trump has thus far had no reply, suggesting that Hillary’s use of the word “covfefe” may have stunned him into embarrassed silence. Or it’s possible he dozed off again before he could respond in kind.
