‘Clinton Center has been bugged’: Former US president takes swipe at Trump
The former US president posted a picture of himself posing next to a giant grasshopper statue outside the Clinton Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, with the caption, “BREAKING: We just learned that the @ClintonCenter has been bugged.”
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Clinton’s tweet inspired plenty of surveillance and bug-related pun tweets, including from the Clinton Center itself.
Bill isn’t the first Clinton suspected of trolling Trump via social media. Soon after Trump’s Muslim ban was struck down by three judges in February, Hillary Clinton tweeted, “3-0.”
3-0— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) February 10, 2017
The biggest Clinton troll appears to be Chelsea though.
In one tweet in February, the former first daughter managed to poke fun at two Trump administration gaffes about terror incidents which never occurred. “What happened in Sweden Friday night? Did they catch the Bowling Green Massacre perpetrators?” Chelsea wrote.

I need a thesaurus. What's another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible https://t.co/jFs2istGbH— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) February 16, 2017
Is the lesson that we should put in "quotes" things we don't mean? Rather than what we say (and mean)? Asking for ... the world https://t.co/Qw8XNHuZpN— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) March 13, 2017
On Monday, the Clinton daughter tweeted that Trump “repeatedly lies.”
Trump repeatedly lies. What's more viscerally upsetting? His bragging toward the end about his higher TV ratings than after the 9/11 attacks https://t.co/QSLEDvXOVf— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) April 24, 2017
The giant bug was outside the Clinton Center as part of its Xtreme Bugs Exhibit.
