As a respite from today's ceremonies, let's take a look at something I posted on Nov. 7, 2012, in the good old days when Trump was so angry about Obama's victory that he got first and second place on Salon's "Sore Losers" list for his angry tweets. Now he's a lot less funny as an exultant winner (but not winner of the popular vote) than he was as a sore loser.
Much more fun than following the pre-election debates (yawn!) and the
election night results is reading today's after- election commentary
and Monday-morning quarterbacking on the internet.
now as number one topic on Yahoo is not a search for the breakdown of
electoral votes, but the burning question: Was Diane Sawyer drunk?
Evidently ABC and her colleagues are saying she was merely exhausted
from staying up night after night memorizing election facts and figures.
I say, never mind if she was celebrating Obama's win off camera; she
still did a great job. I think Diane Sawyer's wicked smart and gorgeous
Salon has listed the 20 top sore losers after
the election results came in and Donald Trump has won first and second
place in this race for two tweets , one of which he has deleted after
cooling down a little. This is what Salon said about Trump:
I think the painting of Trump on Salon (above, by Benjamin
Wheelock) is probably adding to the mogul's anger and disappointment
over Romney's loss, so I thought I'd repost a portrait of Trump which
hangs in his estate Mar-a-Lago, which is now a private club. This is
the way Trump prefers to see himself portrayed:
first posted my photograph of this painting after a lunch at Mar-a-Lago
in April 2011 when the Donald and his family passed through and greeted
us visitors. This is what I posted about it:
Lunch at Mar-a-Lago with the Donald
passed this self-aggrandizing photo on to political blogger Andrew
Sullivan, whose blog is Goliath to "A Rolling Crone's" David. When
Sullivan posted it, hilarity ensued, but no one knew where the photo
came from in the first place until another political blogger, Michael
Shaw, traced it back to my humble blog and my pocket digital camera.
Suddenly I was getting 3,000 hits an hour--a heady experience for a
novice blogger. If you want to read more about the brouhaha, click on

I'm going back to search the internet for more sour-grapes tweets from
Trump and explanations of Diane Sawyer's slurring. It takes my mind off
the rain, sleet and snow in the nor'easter which is fast heading our
way. (Now where did I store that snow shovel?)
