Bill Clinton tried to take a jab George W. Bush on twitter yesterday, but the former Republican President wasn’t having any of it!
It started when Clinton posted a picture of himself to twitter reading Bush’s new book “41: A Portrait of My Father.” The title refers to Bush’s father, George H.W. Bush, being the 41st President of the U.S.
“Received my copy of #41 by #43, George W. Bush,” Clinton captioned the photo. “Touching tribute! #HowAreYouSTILLNotOnTwitter #PresidentialTweeters.”
The backhanded compliment was a clear attempt to make Bush look out-dated for not being on Twitter. However, luckily for him, Bush has an Instagram account, which is even more “hip” than twitter these days.
Bush posted a screenshot of Clinton’s tweet to Instagram along with the caption, “Happy #PresidentsDay – to #44 (@BarackObama), #43 (#HowAreYouNotOnTwitter?), #41 (@GeorgeHWBush), & #39. #PresidentialTweeters.”
While Clinton’s tweet has been retweeted 1,694 times and favorited 2,958 times, Bush’s has over 17,500 likes.
I think we have a clear winner here…
