Since his opponents have failed to do so, Donald Trump came up with a new nickname for himself while speaking to supporters Sunday at a rally in Hagerstown, Maryland — “Wonderful Donald.”
The Republican presidential front-runner was talking about wanting to “fight Hillary Clinton,” when he referenced a poll of the two in a head-to-head match up.
“They actually said — they came with a poll recently. An election between crooked Hillary and wonderful Donald, it’ll be the biggest most incredible vote getting election in the history of our country,” Trump said.
Trump let it be known that he’s not one for giving a humble concession speech should he lose the GOP presidential nomination.
“They fight like hell for six months, and they’re saying horrible things, the worst things you can imagine,” he told the crowd. “And then one of them loses, one of them wins. And the one who loses says, ‘I just want to congratulate my opponent. He is a brilliant man, he’ll be a great governor or president or whatever.'”
But Trump said that’s not his bag.
“I’m not sure you’re ever going to see me there,” he said. “I don’t think I’m going to lose, but if I do, I don’t think you’re ever going to see me again, folks. I think I’ll go to Turnberry and play golf or something.”
The real estate tycoon added that he expects to win the nomination on the first ballot at the Republican convention. Trump also predicted that “in about four or five weeks from now” rival Ted Cruz “will be one of my best friends.”
While his fans loved the new nickname, Trump’s critics jumped at the chance to criticize him… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

@SopanDeb waiting for him to start referring to himself in the third person. Bring back the nineties.

@SopanDeb I often think he is simply laughing at gullible voters. I don’t think he gives a flip about any of them.

@SopanDeb And here I thought that B.O. was the most narcissistic politician in history.

@SopanDeb That dude is probably married to himself. Narcissist punk.
