Donald Trump's Twitter Tirade

New York Magazine

Donald Trump is not happy. NOT HAPPY. Has he lost his millions in an ill-advised property gamble? No. Has the next series of The Apprentice (US) been cancelled? No. Have bad toupees suddenly gone out of fashion? Certainly not.

In fact, the cause of Trump's foul mood is none of the above. It's much, much worse. Former candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump has just discovered that Barack Obama has won the election and there's absolutely nothing he can do about it. Except tweet.

@realDonaldTrump: "The election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!

@realDonaldTrump: "We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!"

@realDonaldTrump: "He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!"

Has the 66-year-old conservative turned over-night radical revolutionary? New York Magazine sees things differently. "The world's most celebrated village idiot, Donald Trump took to Twitter to call for revolution because Obama had won the election without receiving the most votes. (Not long after, Obama took the lead in the popular vote.) For this wonderfully insane tirade - some of which has since been deleted, but which we have preserved in its entirety - Trump wins Daily Intel's election night Most Unhinged Conservative Award." A worthy winner.
