Trump mocked after his Louisiana governor candidate goes down in flames: ‘The plague is more well-liked’
Commenters on the Internet piled on President Donald Trump late Saturday night after the GOP candidate for Lousiana’s governor seat lost to sitting Governor John Bel Edwards who held his seat in a state that Trump carried in 2016 by nearly 20 percentage points.
Trump visited the states multiple times to support Republican Eddie Rispone, but to no avail.
To add insult to injury, a Trump tweet on Saturday that read “Louisiana, 3 hours left, get out and vote for @EddieRispone for Governor. Lower taxes and much more!” was deleted and made unavailable by the president.

What's the over-under on how many points Trump will claim Rispone was down before he came in and almost saved him?— Jeff Greenfield (@Jeff Greenfield)1573962264.0
