Senator Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fought hard against the Bad Iran Deal, even going at it with President Obama, & then Voted AGAINST it! Now he says I should not have terminated the deal – but he doesn’t really believe that! Same with Comey. Thought he was terrible until I fired him!

But Schumer clapped back at Trump’s insulting tweet Thursday in an amusing way ― using the #BeBest hashtag associated with first lady Melania Trump’s new anti-bullying campaign:
People who commented on Twitter appreciated Schumer’s response:
Fantastic reply. We should all reply to #Trump and his bullying tweets with #BeBest

Melania Trump launched the “Be Best” campaign on Monday. It aims to foster “positive social, emotional and physical habits” in children and help them to “avoid negative social media interaction.”
Many critics, including “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, pointed out the first lady’s involvement in the effort is somewhat hypocritical, given the president’s penchant for dishing out online abuse.
