Donald Trump tried to put on a good face, but he was not happy with how the elections turned out.
He has been bragging about his win percentage on Truth Social, but more than a few people have been happy to remind him that the majority of those wins were with seats locked and loaded for Republicans.
For instance, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), who has been in the Senate since 1981, is being counted among Trump’s “wins.”
When it comes to the key battleground races, most of Trump’s picks got buried, two of them being in PA.
Trump endorsed Doug Mastriano for governor in PA, and he lost by 14 points.
He also endorsed Mehmet Oz, who lost to John Fetterman.
Trump could have stayed out of that race and it was all but a certainty that McCormick would have won, and I would bet just about anything he would have crushed Fetterman in the general election.
When Trump endorsed Oz, he was widely criticized, myself among them, but he did not listen.
Reports are now breaking that the former president is blaming Melania Trump for the endorsement...
Trump is indeed furious this morning, particularly about Mehmet Oz, and is blaming everyone who advised him to back Oz -- including his wife, describing it as not her best decision, according to people close to him.

Now, I do not like Haberman and I do not trust her, but this does fit Trump’s MO of not taking the blame when he takes a loss of any sort.
Trump would have been better off standing up and saying that he screwed up, yet only a few days before the election he stated that if his candidates win, he should get all the credit, and if they lose, he should get none of the blame.
Some people thought it was a tongue-in-cheek comment, but it did not seem that way to me.
I am still livid that he refused to open up the vault of the Save America PAC to support his candidates.
He sat on over $250 million, money we all thought would be put into the election, but it is reportedly mostly being used to pay his legal bills.
These losses are on Trump and Trump alone.
