(Newser) – It's another busy morning on Twitter for President Trump, with the leader of the free world zinging the leader of the Hermit Kingdom with none other than an Elton John reference, reports Politico. "I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night. Asked him how Rocket Man is doing. Long gas lines forming in North Korea. Too bad!" Trump tweeted. He was also, as Politico puts it, busily "soaking up the praise of his supporters, correcting a typo from last night and targeting two of his favorite foils: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the New York Times." The latter zingers came via retweets, one depicting his golf swing taking Clinton down as she attempted to board a plane, and the other retweeting criticism of a New York Times reporter criticizing the kid who's mowing the White House lawn as "not sending a great signal on child labor."
