As Twitchy told you yesterday, Donald Trump is furious at the pro-Hillary Super PAC Priorities USA for an ad the group ran yesterday that takes on the presumptive nominee’s relationship with women. At dispute is one line from the ad which Trump (rightfully so) says was him talking about China and not bashing women.
Trump continued his onslaught last night, accusing the Paul Begala led group with outright fraud:
Paul Begala, the dopey @CNN flunky and head of the Pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC, has knowingly committed fraud in his first ad against me.

Although there’s been no talk of a lawsuit or anything like that … yet:
Begala fired back, hitting The Donald on Trump University and his fictitious PR man, John Miller:
Fraud? You have me confused with that fellow behind Trump University. What's his name, John Miller? Sad! https://t.co/Zo8L0NGSkW

As “Trump University” is probably one area where he can’t fight back due to pending litigation, maybe giving Dems an opening to discuss “fraud” wasn’t such a great idea:
What about the pending fraud case NY's Attorney General has against you for Trump University? Shut your fat face. https://t.co/US4meMPxi8

Mission accomplished, Paul. Not only did the ad get under Trump’s skin, but the back-and-forth gets it more free coverage:
