Hillary Clinton Twitter trolls Trump and gets stung by Kellyanne Conway for it

President Trump's former campaign competitor Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to poke at him on Thursday after his travel ban executive order had been struck down by an appeals court, and she had a very simple message.

The reference is to the legal battles he's lost over the ban, with this latest one being the most dire.

But, it didn't take long for Trump's top advisor, Kellyanne Conway to come back at her with her own snarky tweet:

Those, of course, are the states that Trump flipped in the election to rip victory from Hillary and devastate the Democratic party.

The unanimous decision from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals came down hard on Trump's travel ban, citing where he had promised to institute a "Muslim ban" during the presidential campaign in order to question whether it's a lawful order.

The administration had filed a request for a stay on the restraining order that had halted his ban. The restraining order was temporarily placed by a federal judge in Seattle, which was promptly attacked as "so-called" by the president on his own Twitter account. Critics used that occasion to accuse him of authoritarian tendencies by characterizing the attack as intended to undermine the power of the judiciary over the executive.

Trump has vowed to continue fighting for his travel ban in court.
