Trump Claims Huge Midterms Victory: But New Photo From Mar-a-Lago Shows Pure Rage

We have seen the “Truths” throughout the day, posted on Truth Social:

Now that the Election in Florida is over, and everything went quite well, shouldn’t it be said that in 2020, I got 1.1 Million more votes in Florida than Ron D got this year, 5.7 Million to 4.6 Million? Just asking?

Presidential elections bring out more voters, so no, it shouldn’t be said.

While in certain ways yesterday’s election was somewhat disappointing, from my personal standpoint it was a very big victory – 219 WINS and 16 Losses in the General – Who has ever done better than that.

Certain ways being who performed far better than expected, with people pointing at Trump.

174 wins and 9 losses, A GREAT EVENING, and the Fake News Media, together with their partner in crime, the Democrats, are doing everything possible to play it down. Amazing job by some really fantastic candidates!

There are a lot of state representatives running unopposed in that 174, but there are some critical losses or very close races that were winnable or didn’t need to be so close without Trump’s “endorsements.”

None of those are even counting last night’s near-constant wailing

Trump also sees no reason to change anything in terms of his plans, after all, he did great, straight ahead, right? According to Mediaite, Trump said:

“There is a fake news narrative that I was furious—it is just the opposite,” Trump told Fox News. “The people I endorsed did very well. I was batting 98.6% in the primaries, and 216 to 19 in the general election—that is amazing.

One really needs to set up all this bravado to really appreciate a picture that has gone ultra-galactic viral. It was taken last night at Mar-a-Lago. Unless Trump was furious that a hurricane was heading toward his house, there is one thing that put this look on Trump’s face:

That is a look of terror, and everyone knows it. From Twitter:
