Twitter mercilessly drags Donald Trump after he says the “best horse did not win” the Kentucky Derby after the winner was disqualified for crossing the line during the race on Saturday.
Trump tweeted: “The Kentuky [Kentucky] derby decision was not a good one. It was a rough and tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch. Only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby – not even close!”
Um, I seem to recall the best candidate did not win the 2016 presidential election. In fact, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, but was cheated when Russia and James Comey stepped in to help the Republican win. The jokes will literally write themselves.
I think he was just trying to save time… https://t.co/Odg8Nk5sv7

Weird that someone who won an election by suspect means is critical of winners being held to a standard of legitimacy

Ironic because the best candidate did not win the 2016 US presidential election #truth

Sort of like how the Best Candidate didn’t win the 2016 Presidential election?

So now “political correctness” is what we call violating the rules? Makes perfect sense from the most lawless president in the history of the union. ‘Anything goes, win at all costs, break any rule?’

So the second-place finisher was declared the winner?
I didn’t know the Kentucky Derby even USED the Electoral College.
