Today, President-elect Donald Trump beefed on Twitter with former President Bill Clinton, the husband of Trump's former election opponent, over a phone call. The petty beef between a former president and a future president might be the greatest summary of 2016 we've seen so far.
Just recently, Bill Clinton told reporters that the president-elect did call him after winning the election. But he had some harsh words for Trump too, saying he "doesn't know much, [but] one thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him."

Trump has even retweeted a picture of himself golfing with the former president:
Let's just hope Twitter fingers don't turn to trigger fingers.
