(Newser) – Aw, what's Valentine's Day without one possible 2016 presidential candidate trolling another? That was apparently Rand Paul's line of thinking yesterday when he set up a fake Pinterest account to deride Hillary Clinton and pull out the Internet slang, the Washington Post reports. "If Hillary Clinton set up a Pinterest for Valentine's Day, we can only imagine it might look like this," he tweeted. The account features:

  • A "White House Remodel" board with images of furniture and a heart-shaped swimming pool—apparently mocking Clinton's passion for Overstock.com, reports Jezebel. It reads, "Can't wait to get in there and remodel!"
  • A "Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda" board with photos of Hillary or Bill alongside Democrats who lost in November, including senatorial candidates Alison Grimes of Kentucky and Michelle Nunn of Georgia. The board reads, "#bffes who almost got there. Pined for reflection."
  • A photo of Clinton with in-the-doghouse NBC News anchor Brian Williams and the words, "You tell me your war story, I’ll tell you mine." (Brian Williams has fessed up to a wartime fib, and Clinton admitted in 2008 that she hadn't really come under enemy fire in Bosnia, the Wall Street Journal notes.)
  • A pic of Clinton gving a speech with the words, "Hour speech, $200,000 price tag" (clearly ridiculing her claim that she and Bill were "dead broke").
  • A pin of a Bill Clinton doll dancing to the words, "Lookin at the Bae all day <3."

This isn't Paul's first online jab at Clinton, either: He made fun of losing Democratic Senate candidates after the November midterms with a series of tweets using the hashtag #HillarysLosers, MSNBC reports. The Journal recalls that he also posted fake audio of a phone call between actors pretending to be Clinton and Jeb Bush disagreeing over whose "turn" it was to claim the Oval Office.
