The Democratic Party Iowa caucuses on Monday night unfolded like an AFC playoff game in which the NFC team somehow came out the winner. As the hours ticked well past midnight with no precincts reporting the results, allegedly due to a faulty app, President Trump and the Republican Party were handed victory on a silver platter as the nation watched Democrats implode under the weight of gross incompetence.

On Twitter, as the reality began to sink in that Democrats would be coming away empty-handed, Republicans seized the moment to troll their political rivals into oblivion. Not a punch was spared.

“Somewhere, deep in his richly-appointed underground lair, Michael Bloomberg takes a swig of a 16-ounce Coke, a drag from a cigarette, and smiles while caressing his 12-gauge shotgun. His diabolical plan is working to perfection,” tweeted Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro.

“BREAKING: While Democrats can’t even figure out how to count their votes or use a simple app, [President Trump] has achieved RECORD turnout in the Iowa Caucus for an incumbent president Americans are fired up to re-elect Trump. Meanwhile Democrats are left confused. Incredible,” tweeted TPUSA’s Charlie Kirk.

“Well let’s see, the Democrats screwed an impeachment and now a caucus. Next up: They try to boil water,” tweeted Ann Coulter.

“President Trump found a way to win the Democratic Iowa Caucus tonight! The DNC handed it to him — this is the biggest disaster in Iowa Caucus history!!” tweeted author Brigitte Gabriel.

“Democrats proudly let you know last night that they spent the past THREE YEARS preparing for #IowaCaucus and this #IowaCaucusDisaster is what they have to show for all that preparation. You can’t trust the Democrats to run anything well, especially not our healthcare or country,” tweeted Robby Starbuck. 

“Biggest story out of last night wasn’t Dems screwing up their own caucus, it was the low voter turnout. Doesn’t appear they came close to Obama 2008 levels. Bad omen for Dems. This is what happens when you have one of the least impressive primary fields in Presidential history,” tweeted Republican strategist Andrew Surabian.

“After the debacle in Iowa, WHERE NOT A SINGLE VOTE HAS BEEN REPORTED, it’s abundantly clear that Democrats are the single greatest threat to election security and integrity in this country. Not Trump, not Russia, not Ukraine. Democrats,” tweeted Federalist co-founder Sean Davis.

Others aptly referred to the night as the Democratic Party’s own version of the Fyre Festival, which is especially potent in light of the fact that CNN captured on live television a precinct secretary having the phone hung up on them by a local Democratic official as they tried to report the caucus results.

“Democrats’ Iowa Fyre Fest After nearly 12 hours of waiting for results to come in from the Iowa Democrat caucuses, there’s no way to sugarcoat this: the caucuses are a total and complete disaster for Democrats,” tweeted GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest. 

None other than President Trump and the First Family got in on the troll action.

“The Democrat Caucus is an unmitigated disaster. Nothing works, just like they ran the Country. Remember the 5 Billion Dollar Obamacare Website, that should have cost 2% of that. The only person that can claim a very big victory in Iowa last night is ‘Trump,'” the president tweeted.

“If the Democrats can’t run a #caucus that they had four years to prepare for, how the hell can anyone think they could actually run the country?” tweeted Donald Trump Jr.
