President Donald Trump told supporters in Georgia that he wouldn’t “feel so good” if he lost the election to Joe Biden and joked that he might have to “leave the country” if the Democratic presidential nominee wins.

Trump’s remarks about the upcoming presidential election came during a campaign event in Macon on Friday where he spoke for nearly two hours, complaining at one point about having to run against the “worst candidate in the history of presidential politics” and triggering his critics on the left who obviously don’t understand his sense of humor.

“I will deliver optimism, opportunity and hope, and that’s what we’re doing, and this is why we have this kind of spirit, and I hate to say it because I don’t want to insult Georgia, but it’s this way all over our country,” the president told cheering supporters gathered at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport on Friday.

“I shouldn’t joke because you know what? Running against the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics puts pressure on me,” Trump continued, referring to his Democratic opponent.

“Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I going to do? I’m going to say ‘I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics.’ I’m not going to feel so good,” Trump told the crowd.

“Maybe I’ll have to leave the country? I don’t know,” he added, jokingly using the threat liberals have been employing since his 2016 campaign.

The group of anti-Trump former Republicans, The Lincoln Project, wasted no time taking a shot at the president over his joke.

Back in 2016, Trump told a crowd at a Maryland rally that he would pretty much disappear if he did not win the election.

“I’m not sure you’re ever going to see me there. 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,” he said at the time.

At a campaign rally in North Carolina last month, Trump had also joked with supporters about potentially losing his reelection bid, telling the crowd: “If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I will never speak to you again.

His comments were soon highlighted by the Biden campaign in a video advertisement.

Naturally, the president’s critics were ecstatic at the idea that he could leave the country if Biden scores an election victory.

Liberals in Hollywood are already threatening to move if the president is reelected. Singer Bruce Springsteen, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and others have recently declared their intentions to exit the U.S. if Biden loses, echoing the empty promises of 2016 that saw the likes of Cher, Miley Cyrus, Samuel L. Jackson and Lena Dunham, among others, saying they would leave – but didn’t.

The left repeatedly proves they have no sense of humor and the president’s banter with rally crowds seems to be a problem area for his critics who are perpetually shocked by Trump’s jokes. Besides his comments about what he will do with his life if not reelected, the president had a moment of fun in Florida as well, where he joked that he would “find a way” to fire Gov. Ron DeSantis if he loses the critical swing state.

“He’s done a great job and he’s been my friend,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Ocala.

“Hey, Ron, are we going to win this state, please? You know if we don’t win it, I’m blaming the governor. I’ll fire him somehow. I’m going to fire him. I will find a way, anyway,” he said of the Republican governor who has been an outspoken supporter of the president.

Pearl-clutching critics were up in arms, claiming the president was trying to “rig” the election in Florida by threatening the governor, who many also slammed for not wearing a mask at the event.

Other Twitter users were clearly over the left’s whining.
