Alleged Tough Guy Donald Trump, who famously said, “I do whine because I want to win and I’m not happy about not winning and I am a whiner and I keep whining and whining until I win,” should be nicknamed Whinin’ Donald.
Don’t believe me? Here are seven times the crybaby whined that he was being treated unfairly, from the earliest pout until the most recent squeal:
- Whining about Megyn Kelly’s queries regarding his terrible record of belittling and insulting women, Trump moaned last August, “I think Megyn behaved very nasty to me. I thought it was an unfair question. They didn’t ask those questions of anybody else. So I thought it was an unfair question.”
- Trump’s whining about Fox News continued even into September, when he whimpered:
3. On October 28, even before the next presidential debate, Trump whined:
4. On December 15, complaining about the CNN debate, he pouted with moderator Hugh Hewitt:
Trump: But I thought it was very unfair that virtually the entire early portion of the debate was Trump this, Trump that, in order to get ratings, I guess. In order to get ratings, I guess.
Hewitt: But, Mr. Trump, it’s not CNN — I was on CNN last night…
Trump: I just think it’s very — excuse me.
Hewitt: … watching…
Trump: Excuse me. I think it’s very unprofessional.
Hewitt: But it wasn’t — it wasn’t CNN. It was me. I watched you last night for 16 minutes. It’s not CNN.
5. On February 2 , after he finished second to Ted Cruz in the Iowa primary, Trump tweeted, “The media has not covered my long-shot great finish in Iowa fairly. Brought in record voters and got second highest vote total in history!”
6. Roughly one week ago, asked by George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” why he should be “guaranteed the nomination” if he didn’t garner the required 1,237 delegates to win on the first ballot, Trump whined, “If I’m a little bit short – and one of the reasons was we had so many candidates. I mean, we started off with 17 candidates … there are so many candidates, so it’s very hard to get over that number. It’s very unfair.”
7. Finally, just yesterday, Whinin’ Donald complained about the fact that Ted Cruz may get 10 more delegates than Trump from Louisiana, which would be perfectly fair even though Trump won slightly more votes than Cruz. As the Wall Street Journal pointed out: “ … the five delegates awarded to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio are now free agents because he ended his campaign, and Louisiana Republicans expect them to swing behind Mr. Cruz. Meanwhile, the state’s five unbound delegates—who are free to back the candidates of their choice—also are more likely to back Mr. Cruz than Mr. Trump, according to GOP officials in the state.”
Trump’s latest bawling sounded like this: “Just to show you how unfair Republican primary politics can be, I won the State of Louisiana and get less delegates than Cruz.”
Poor Whinin’ Donald. It’s just so hard to have your daddy tell you you’re a king and have to suffer such brutality.
