Hillary “Hilldawg” Clinton is no stranger to controversy. Whether she can unite the Democratic Party in the wake of her gathering enough delegates for the nomination remains to be seen — if there’s anything the #GirlIGuessImWithHer hashtag demonstrated, it’s that the young folks who supported Bernie Sanders are less than eager to unify behind Clinton. So what does Clinton do to change their hearts and minds? Tweet a Tumblr meme at Donald Trump.
The “delete your account” meme is a familiar one to any person who’s spent too much time on Tumblr, Twitter, or any other unforgiving web community. For the rest of us: it’s a way of telling someone who’s made an embarrassing, stupid, or otherwise pointless post on a public forum that their post is bad and they should feel bad. It’s often ironically shared among friends, but just as often directed at strangers. This, however, is definitely the first time it’s been aimed at a Presidential candidate by another Presidential candidate.
Here’s the original Twitter conversation between Trump and Clinton, including Trump’s comeback:
Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama—but nobody else does!

Savage on both sides. Twitter users were quick to react, giving Clinton’s tweet (as of this writing) over 400,000 retweets and 500,000 likes — not to mention thousands of responses. Here are some of the most popular:
What do you think? Did Hillary knock it out of the park on this one, or is this just another cringe-worthy attempt by a politician to appeal to millennials? Let us know in the comments below or @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
