Donald Trump's latest Twitter tempest targets CNN reporter

Why pick a secretary of state when you can spend your night retweeting teenagers?

After passing time on Sunday baselessly claiming that "millions" of people voted illegally in the presidential election, Donald Trump, 70, posted two tweets earlier Monday — one about Cuba and another regarding his meeting with retired four-star general David Petraeus. Once night fell, Trump revisited the topic of unproven voter fraud, but this time brought CNN into the mix, retweeting followers who accused the network's senior Washington correspondent, Jeff Zeleny, of being a "wannabe journalist."

Despite never offering any proof of voter fraud himself, Trump retweeted @Filibuster, a self-described 16-year-old Oakland Raiders fan who called Zeleny "pathetic" with "no sufficient evidence that Donald Trump did not suffer from voter fraud, shame! Bad reporter!" Zeleny responded by sending Trump a tweet asking him to send any examples of voter fraud his way. As her husband spent the night on Twitter, it's possible Melania Trump was carefully crafting her anti-cyber bullying platform.
