Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is known to hold a grudge. In the first Republican debate, the New York businessman took another swipe in his long-running feud with comedian Rosie O’Donnell, for example.
When South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley endorsed and campaigned for Florida Senator [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore], she was added to Trump’s list. But after the South Carolina primary, which was won by Trump, the campaign moved on. Trump, however, doesn’t seem to have taken comfort in his victory.
After retweeting tweets by his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and social media director Dan Scavino of a Daily Caller video featuring Haley from 2012 claiming the issue of candidates releasing tax returns was “a distraction,” Trump told his more than 6.5 million followers:
The people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 1, 2016
Trump has been besieged by calls to release his tax returns to show how much he earns and how much he pays in taxes.
After the Trump tweet, Haley had a three-word response.
@realDonaldTrump, Bless your heart.
— Nikki Haley (@nikkihaley) March 1, 2016
Urban Dictionary defines the phrase “Bless your heart” thusly: “This is a term used by the people of the southern United States particularly near the Gulf of Mexico to express to someone that they are an idiot without saying such harsh words.”
