Everyone's Making Fun of Trump's Loss - and It's So Enjoyable

Donald Trump hates losers. We know this because he has told us many times in many ways, with Twitter being perhaps his favorite. If you have ever wondered what might make Trump shut up, even for a sweet, fleeting moment, it seems the answer is becoming the very thing he loathes most. That’s right: after losing to Ted Cruz in Iowa, the Donald suddenly stopped tweeting. Though it’s unlikely we’ve heard the end of him, for 15 delicious hours, Trump’s Twitter has been completely silent.


Which is funny, because ever since the Donald's loss, the Internet has been pretty much anything but silent.

In addition to rounding up many of Trump’s “loser” tweets (never forget!), many were also too happy to recall second-placer Trump’s 2013 tweet quoting Walter Hagen about how forgettable second-place finishers are:

The New York Daily News did what the New York Daily News has gotten pretty brilliant at doing, which is taking down Trump in the harshest of ways:

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"607098","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"480","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"392"}}]]

And then there were the hilarious tweets mocking Trump’s loss:

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"607100","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"193","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"480"}}]]

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"607102","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"196","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"480"}}]][[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"607103","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"197","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"480"}}]]

Who knows if Trump will come roaring back in the hours to come. In the meantime, just enjoy the silence.
