Trump woke up on the inadequate side of the bed again.
After a long week of defending an accused sexual predator, Donald Trump woke up Saturday morning and promptly took to Twitter to showcase how insecure he is about his historic unpopularity.
In a series of tweets, Trump unintentionally reminded everyone of his popular vote loss in a desperate attempt to ridicule Hillary Clinton, and then proceeded to accept praise for a policy that was implemented by the Obama administration.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton is the worst (and biggest) loser of all time,” Trump tweeted. “She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party. Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years.”
Trump seems to have forgotten that Clinton beat him in the popular vote by a landslide. In fact, Trump lost the popular vote to Clinton by a greater margin than any other candidate who has gone on to become president.
Perhaps feeling inadequate after sending that last tweet, Trump went on to retweet conservative pundits Piers Morgan and Greta Van Susteren, who praised his decision not to overturn an Obama-era policy.
Morgan and Van Susteren were thanking Trump for a tweet he sent on Friday announcing that he would keep in place an Obama-era ban on importing sport-hunted trophies of elephants from Zimbabwe and Zambia. The day before, his administration announced that it had lifted the ban.
Apparently, since he doesn’t have any policy victories of his own to celebrate, Trump decided he would just borrow some from President Obama.
One would think Trump might grow more comfortable in his role as time goes on. Instead, over a year after the election, Trump is so insecure about President Obama’s popularity that he has now resorted to showering himself in praise for his predecessor’s policies.
That’s just … sad.
