The question is: why can’t Trump beat up on someone else?
The L word: “On a Trumpian level, she lost and has lost multiple times,” a Democratic consultant told us. “While to rational people, she is one of the most successful people in public life, most GOP supporters see her as a loser.”
History: “The party who is not in the White House always languishes a bit without a clearly defined leader until they have a presidential nominee to rally behind,” a former Trump White House staffer said. “So I don’t necessarily think Democrats are in an unusual position here.”
Popular vote: Trump insists that he lost the popular vote to Clinton because millions of illegal voters supported her. (There’s no evidence of that)
