President Trump today tweeted his explanation for the controversial decision that disqualified the winning horse in the Kentucky Derby on a rules violation. The second place finisher was awarded the victory after the judges ruled that the violation was severe. As the debate ensued, Trump stated that he disagreed with the officials and attributed the whole thing to political correctness.
Here is Trump’s tweet:
The Kentucky Derby decision was not a good one. It was a rough & tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch. Only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby - not even close!
When I read that, it occurred to me that the words in the post, with just a few changes, could be applied to him and his 2016 election.
My suggested rewrite (without textual redactions) is as follows:
The Trump Electoral College decision was not a good one. It was a rough & tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch. Only in these days of Constitutional correctness could such an upholding occur. The best candidate did NOT win the American election - not even close.
Thank you, Mr. President. Your thoughts on the upcoming World Badminton Tournament will be eagerly anticipated.
