Bill Kristol, editor of the conservative Weekly Standard, posted a cryptic tweet over the weekend promising a third party alternative would soon emerge to challenge Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Trump, of course, just couldn’t contain his own impulsive Twitter behavior and launched into Kristol with his typical middle-school mannerisms. (Notice the time stamps — these were all posted within ten minutes. Trump is seriously unstable, but I digress.)
