President Trump had fun trolling Democrats after Republicans held off a Dem win in Georgia’s 6th district special election.
Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff failed to secure the 50% mark needed to avoid a runoff in June, despite getting $8 million in campaign donations and glowing endorsements from random celebrities and popular Congressman John Lewis, who represents a nearby district.
The special election was held to fill the House seat vacated by Tom Price, who’s now the Health and Human Services Secretary.
Because there were 11 Republicans running in the primary, the GOP vote was deeply fractured. As a result, Ossoff coasted to get 48.3% of the total vote despite a paper-thin resume. He will now face Karen Handel, the top GOP vote-getter, in a runoff election on June 20. Handel is expected to win the reliably Republican district.
After the election results came in, President Trump gleefully tweeted that he was happy to have contributed to Ossoff’s loss. “Despite major outside money, FAKE media support and eleven Republican candidates, BIG ‘R’ win with runoff in Georgia,” he tweeted at 12:09 a.m. Wednesday. “Glad to be of help!”
The president had previously tweeted his support for Republicans, and pointed out that Jon Ossoff is a carpet-bagger who doesn’t even live in the district he’s running to represent. So he couldn’t even vote for himself.
Liberal media tried to put a positive spin on Ossoff’s loss, with CNN hack Don Lemon fawning all over the boyish 30-year-old Ossoff.
“Am I the only who thinks he sounded like Barack Obama?” Lemon breathlessly cooed. “Did that sound like Barack Obama?” Lemon is a sycophant of the Obamas and once referred to them as the “closest thing we have to royalty.”
Race-baiting leftist Angela Rye agreed, gushing: “He’s inspired. Yes, we can, Jon Ossoff! Yes, we can!”
Meanwhile, here is Obama’s legacy:
