Donald Trump skewered his critics while toasting his own successes on Twitter as results rolled in from Super Tuesday ballots across the country.
The President reserved most of his ire for ‘Mini’ Mike Bloomberg and Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren, who both had poor showings in the polls.
Hitting out at fellow New York billionaire Bloomberg, Trump branded him ‘the biggest loser of the night, by far’.
‘His “political” consultants took him for a ride,’ Trump tweeted.
‘$700 million washed down the drain, and he got nothing for it but the nickname Mini Mike, and the complete destruction of his reputation. Way to go Mike!’
Trump also took aim at Warren after she failed to win her home state of Massachusetts, landing her a distant third in the delegate stakes.
‘Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, other than Mini Mike, was the loser of the night. She didn’t even come close to winning her home state of Massachusetts,’ he wrote.
Recalling a widely-mocked video she put out at the start of her campaign in which she drank a beer in her kitchen, Trump added: ‘Now she can just sit back with her husband and have a nice cold beer!’
Trump didn’t directly address the night’s biggest winners – Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders – but he did retweet a video in which Biden mistook his sister for his wife.
The gaffe – one of a series of high-profile mix-ups on the campaign trail for Biden – saw the former Vice President grab his wife’s hand and announce to the crowd in Los Angeles: ‘By the way, this is my little sister, Valerie.’
When he realized his mistake, Biden pointed to Valerie and said: ‘Oh, no, this is her.’
He then told the pair he thought they were on the other sides of him: ‘You’ve switched on me.’
Trump also retweeted a column by Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano accusing high level Democrats of plotting to stop Bernie Sanders getting the nomination.
While Trump made sure to put down his rivals, he donated most of his energy to cheering his own successes – albeit while facing token opposition.
