Trump’s angry tweet about Barack Obama’s DNC speech made the former president’s point
The Democratic National Convention heard a speech from Barack Obama on Wednesday, and the usually scrupulously polite former president absolutely ripped the incumbent to pieces.
Just a day after Michelle Obama accused Trump of being in over his head, her husband said this.

Trump was obviously watching, because he took to Twitter to smash out a capslocked rant, which included this accusation.
HE SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN, AND GOT CAUGHT!

So statesmanlike. Franklin Leonard had this tip for reading Trump’s tweets – and it really works.
Someone on the internet that I can't remember (please tell me who so I can give them credit) said that all of his tweets are more accurately communicated if you start with "Mommy!" and read from there. https://t.co/Hqfktxd8Zs

Trump is very good at playing it cool and not letting anyone know they're getting under his skin https://t.co/ny16JvDpmg

Obama just finished hitting Trump for watching TV all day and not taking the job seriously, and Trump responds from watching TV and repeating a made up conspiracy: https://t.co/BzHOuWTm51

In something of a pincer movement, presidential candidate and former VP, Joe Biden, posted this proof that his old boss was correct.

Not that sleepy after all.
