Trump gave what had to be the most humbling concession speech, as Ricky Bobby said in Talledega Nights,
“Second Place is the first loser!“
There were many people anxious to see the fall of The Donald, and it was his own fault. One of Trump’s most famous Tweets is as follows:
“No one remembers who came in second.” – Walter Hagen
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 30, 2013
When I see this tweet, it reminds me of a fighter who believe his hype. He surrounds himself with protectors and suckups who tell him, that he’s the greatest. But when the time comes for the fight, he finds out that he was all hype. There was somebody who trained harder, wanted it more, and was willing to fight to the death for it.
In the end, the fighter is humiliated, yes even humbled.
Uproxx documents what is a scathing synopsis of Trump tweets about “losers and haters”, that can now be turned around on The Donald himself.
