Taking a swing at Hillary Clinton, President Trump retweeted a mock video that shows him smacking a golf ball that seemingly strikes her in the back before she stumbles and falls while boarding a plane. Trump retweeted the brief video on Sunday, the AP reports. The assessment from Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff: "juvenile." It is "distressing" to "have a president that, frankly, will tweet and retweet things as juvenile as that," Schiff said on ABC's This Week on Sunday. "It doesn't help, I think, in terms of his stature." A Clinton spokesman declined comment. The White House issued no comment, and Trump aides have said in the past that his tweets "speak for themselves." The New York Times, which notes "Twitter is fertile ground for insults" and "the president's contributions have been numerous," has an interactive outlining his favorite targets.
