RNC Chief to Clinton: If Anyone Knows Delete Key, It’s You
Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and RNC Chief Reince Priebus got into a Twitter spat, after Clinton responded to a Donald Trump tweet with a popular internet meme.
A common joke on social media, especially amongst political strategists and journalists, is to suggest a particular person “delete” their account after something particularly stupid or bad. The Clinton campaign got in on it responding to Donald Trump’s tweet about the President endorsing her.
Delete your account. https://t.co/Oa92sncRQY

This led RNC Chief Reince Priebus to lob his own insult at Clinton, referencing the emails she deleted from her server which she says were all personal in nature. Congressman Jeff Duncan, from South Carolina, also made the same joke but more obviously.
.@HillaryClinton If anyone knows how to use a delete key, it's you.

From the Hill:
Priebus earlier Thursday responded to President Obama’s endorsement of Clinton by going after Clinton’s email scandal, saying she “put our national security at risk” and accusing her of creating the arrangement to “obscure her unethical dealings.”
“I don’t think there’s been a candidate for this office more unethical and untrustworthy than Hillary Clinton,” Priebus said in a statement, mentioning the FBI investigation into her email arrangement.
