At the beginning of Trump’s press conference today there was a clip that caught my eye for a post, but I got sidetrack when Jim Acosta accosted Trump.
It was a very Trumpy clip too, where he called out and mocked Republicans who distanced themselves from him for the election last night and ended up losing.

If losing isn’t bad enough, getting called out by the president for ‘doing it wrong’ must really suck. It’s the verbal equivalent of a finger to the eye by Trump.
But his point was abundantly clear, that he was a positive force on the campaign trail and they might’ve won if they embraced him and his policies instead of pushing him away. They bought into the anti-Trump narrative and Trump is now rubbing their noses in it.
The most notable Republican in his list was Mia Love, who he said didn’t show him ‘any love’. Heh. She got beat by almost 3 points last night and I’m not sure just how big of a loss that really is, considering her liberty score is an F.
Watch the clip from more.
