President Trump on Thursday went after his predecessor, who responded with a single word: "Vote." It went down like this:

  • Trump: He's been going after former President Obama, and on Thursday retweeted his own Wednesday tweet reading simply, "OBAMAGATE!"
  • Obama: The former prez had his own one-word reply: "Vote." The Hill reports he shared the message on Instagram and Facebook as well.
What's it all about? The Michael Flynn controversy, as explained here. (More President Trump stories.)
