The internet is forever.
Twitter can be fun, if for no other reason than it provides a mass, global platform to gloat at people who richly deserve a collective smack-down.
Now that Donald Trump has won the election, Twitter users are having fun gloating over arrogant past tweets from President Obama‘s former campaign manager David Plouffe and former deputy chief of staff Jim Messina.
Throughout the election cycle, both Plouffe and Messini gleefully tweeted that Hillary Clinton was a shoe-in to win the presidency.
In May, Messina tweeted that God had answered his prayers by letting Trump win the GOP primaries, because that would surely lead to a Clinton victory.
“Proof there is a God: I prayed every night for a year for Trump to win R primary. SHE EXISTS, and she made him win! Tx God,” Messina tweeted.

Twitter fans poked fun at Messina not only for his horribly wrong forecast, but over his pronoun choice for God.
Apparently God would like a word about pronoun usage with you. https://t.co/3aBnT08Dro

Former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe was also on the receiving of some much-deserved schadenfreude after he confidently predicted two weeks before the election that Hillary Clinton would become the first female U.S. president:
“In 2 weeks, after 227 years and 43 men, the USA will finally elect a woman to serve as our President. BFD [Big F*cken Deal] as the @VP would say.”
A Twitter user retorted with a hilarious photo of bawling crybaby Hillary fans, who were distraught after their heroine lost despite support from the media, Hollywood, Wall Street, the billionaire mega-donors, biased polls, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.
Hey! How'd that work out? Did she win? https://t.co/QPd1QeaN19

But perhaps the most epic Twitter gloat belongs to Kellyanne Conway, who made history as the first woman to run a winning presidential campaign.
Her Twitter bio says it all: “We Won.” (mic drop.)
