Donald Trump just can’t avoid Twitter smack-downs these days. The controversial business magnate squared-off against Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban earlier this week, and is now in the midst of a good old fashioned Twitter fight with Conservative blogger Michelle Malkin.
Malkin runs the Twitter curation site Twitchy, which is a pretty decent and reasonable “finger on the pulse of Conservative America” alternative to liberal blogs like the Daily Kos. Malkin took to the site to call Trump, who recently spoke at CPAC, a “conservafraud.”
Then she extended her beef with Trump to her own Twitter account, where she wrote:

Now Trump has been called out in the past for using government power to “strong-arm” others in the past, which is the very definition of “crony capitalism.” Also, despite professing to be a Conservative himself, Trump also supports socialized medicine and is an abuser of eminent domain, things Conservatives like Michelle Malkin kindly take issue with.
About 12 hours later, Trump finally responded from the textbook of “I know you are, but what am I?”
Prompting Malkin to respond:
Yes, Michelle Malkin was a troll and picked a fight with Donald Trump. Yes, Trump is an increasingly stationary target to close-range rhetorical fire. But whether you agree or disagree with Malkin’s politics, most of us can agree that Donald Trump is sort-of a big, fat doo-doo head.
