Troll Level: Expert - Donald Trump Literally Takes Aim at Hillary on Twitter

President Trump, leader of the free world, devoted part of his Sunday morning to posting a bunch of Twitter memes - including one that shows him hitting Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.

"It is distressing though to have a President that, frankly, will tweet and retweet things as juvenile as that", USA representative Adam Schiff of California said in a televised interview.

The tweet came as Clinton promoted her new book, "What Happened", about the 2016 campaign, reviving her fiercest criticisms of Trump and his supporters and reigniting the debate about her stunning, unanticipated loss.

The GIF shows Donald Trump hitting a golf ball into the back of Hillary Clinton.

"Donald Trump's fantastic golf swing", read the tweet, which was posted Wednesday. In July, Trump retweeted a video of himself pummeling a wrestler with a CNN logo for a head.

While some Twitter users praised Trump for his "sense of humour" following the golf ball retweet, others berated him.

Critics swiftly responded. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., appearing on ABC's "This Week, said: "It's distressing to have a president that frankly will tweet and retweet things as juvenile as that".

Mr Trump attacked Mrs Clinton directly on Wednesday in a series of posts on the social media site.

"It doesn't help, I think, in terms of his stature".

The White House has criticised the book, with spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders calling it "sad" that the last chapter of Mrs Clinton's public life will be defined by selling books with "false and reckless attacks". "She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!"

We have become all too familiar with President Trump's childish, irresponsible, and often media-grabbing tweets.
