Now we know how Donald Trump must behave on those rare occasions when someone he deems far less worthy beats him on the golf course.
The puffed-up, imperious blowhard who sports a dead ferret for a hairpiece outdid himself for buffoonery on election night with his hysterical — and hysterically comical — Twitter rants that prompted the anchor on his own TV network to blast the golf course developer, real estate mogul, and all-around sore loser.
As President Barack Obama was cruising to reelection over Mitt Romney, Trump was going nuts, prompting many golf-related observers on Twitter to question his sanity (which, using his pre-election $5 million offer to Obama as an indicator, has been in The Donald’s rear-view for some time now).
The owner of 13 golf courses throughout North America and Europe and a purported five or six handicap went so far off the fairway that NBC’s Brian Williams could stand it no longer.
“This is, as they say, out there and getting an airing tonight, so you might as well know about it,” William said from the election night news desk of the network that airs Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” a show in the category of reality — a concept with which Trump is increasingly unfamiliar. “Donald Trump, who has driven well past the last exit to relevance and veered into something closer to irresponsible here, is tweeting tonight. Here’s a sampling….”
Williams read some of the howlers from @realDonaldTrump, which included the following, some of which Trump subsequently removed from his Twitter account:
“Our nation is a once great nation divided!
“Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before.
“This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy.
“Lets fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.
“We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!
“Well, back to the drawing board!
To which Williams could only conclude, “So there, you have that. That happened.”
