Donald Trump trolled Kamala Harris with a fake message of well-wishing on Tuesday after she announced she would drop out of the Democratic presidential primary, but Harris did him one better when she troll-replied with a reference t0 the possibility that Trump will be impeached.
The fun went down Tuesday afternoon, when Trump tweeted “Too bad. We will miss you Kamala!” in response to her announcement. As Trump insults go it was unusually civil, though still dripping in sarcasm.
Just minutes later, Harris came back with the comeback, tweeting at Trump “Don’t worry, Mr. President. I’ll see you at your trial.” Guess POTUS can’t count on her to vote “acquit” if the House of Representatives votes to impeach him. (Duh.)
Earlier in the day, Harris said in a letter to supporters: “I’m not a billionaire. I can’t fund my own campaign. And as the campaign has gone on, it’s become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete. In good faith, I can’t tell you, my supporters and volunteers, that I have a path forward if I don’t believe I do.”
The announcement came after a series of setbacks, most recently when a resignation letter by campaign state operations director Kelly Mehlenbacher was obtained by the New York Times. “This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly,” Mehlenbacher wrote. “With less than 90 days until Iowa we still do not have a real plan to win.”
Harris’s campaign also struggled with online fundraising and spent more than $1.41 for every dollar the campaign raised in its third quarter, according to the Times. She was also polling in the single digits for national and early-state polls.
But, on the bright side, she’s not being investigated for attempting to pressure a foreign government into investigating her political rivals.
