Clinton Campaign Tears Into Trump’s ‘Unhinged’ Late-Night Tweetstorm

The Hillary Clinton campaign Friday seized on Donald Trump’s middle-of-the-night Twitter tirade against a former Miss Universe to deride the GOP nominee as “unhinged” and thin-skinned.

In a series of tweets of its own, the Clinton campaign said that Trump has a pattern of lashing out when something “gets under his skin” and noted that he has attacked several women’s appearances.

Trump’s late-night tweetstorm attacked former Miss Universe Alicia Machado as “disgusting,” claimed that she has a “sex tape,” and suggested without any evidence that Clinton may have improperly assisted the Venezuelan Machado in obtaining her U.S. citizenship.

In a tweetstorm that began around 3:20 a.m. ET on Friday, Donald Trump continued his attacks on Machado, whose negative experiences with Trump were resurfaced by the Clinton campaign this week. In addition to his attacks on Machado, Trump scolded the media for using unnamed sources to report on his campaign’s internal workings.
