"Hi @RandPaul I know the 2016 race was painful for you since you were such a big loser (then & now) with a dismal 4.5% in Iowa. No surprise since your motto seems to be 'Terrorists First, America Second,' " Cheney tweeted, referencing Paul's 2016 presidential bid.

The Twitter feud appears to have began Wednesday, when Paul tweeted an op-ed written by Wyoming state legislators calling on Cheney to stop "publicly criticizing our Republican commander-in-chief and seemingly pushing the U.S. toward yet another endless war in the Middle East." The op-ed was published by the Washington Examiner last week.
