(Newser) – Time apparently does not heal all wounds. Former rivals Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton tussled on Twitter Wednesday evening, with President Trump referencing Clinton's comments at Recode's CodeCon earlier that day in which she pilloried the DNC and dished out blame for her 2016 loss to a few other entities as well. "Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC," tweeted the president at 8:40pm EDT.

Some 50 minutes after Trump's tweet, Clinton posted this, "People in covfefe houses shouldn't throw covfefe." It was her second "covfefe" dig of the day. The Washington Post notes that Donald Trump Jr. made it a family affair, chiming in with a dig of his own on Twitter: "What house is he in again??? That's what I thought. You're trying too hard." And while Trump won the election, Clinton is winning the retweet battle: Her tweet has been retweeted a little more than 197,000 times, almost 10 times Trump's current count. (Here's how Sean Spicer explained "covfefe.")
