Donald Trump Is In Meltdown Mode After Successful Democratic Convention

The Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this week was a massive success – political experts on both sides of the aisle have agreed on that. Disaffected Republicans have even openly expressed their jealousy of a convention that painted a hopeful, optimistic picture of America’s future, instead of the hellscape that Trump and company tried to portray America as during their gathering.

The DNC also took in a whopping 17 million more total viewers than the Republican clown show in Cleveland the week before.

These things bothered the thin-skinned buffoon so much that he actually distanced himself from his own convention, saying “I didn’t produce our show — I just showed up for the final speech on Thursday.”

There has been plenty of reporting to contradict Trump’s claim that he was hands-off with his convention, but we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on this one. After all, this year’s DNC was so effective that it would’ve been hard to top in any scenario.

But that’s not nearly the end of Trump’s post-DNC meltdown.

In Clinton’s historic and well-received acceptance speech last night, she said: “A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”

Naturally, Trump spent Friday morning throwing a Twitter tantrum, whining about Clinton’s address and the positive media coverage that followed. He also went hard after former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who called the Republican nominee a “dangerous demagogue” in his DNC speech. Trump referred to the former mayor as “little,” recycling a line he used on former GOP rival Marco Rubio.

On Thursday night in Iowa, Trump lashed out some more, saying, “‘I wanted to hit a couple of those (DNC) speakers so hard, it would make their heads spin.”

This childish outburst continued on Friday in Colorado, when Trump said, “After watching that performance last night, such lies, I don’t have to be so nice anymore. I’m taking the gloves off. Trump is gonna be ‘No more Mr. Nice Guy.'”

Before the DNC, Trump pretended to resist engaging in the “lock her up” chants that made up most of the Republican convention in Cleveland, but post-DNC Trump is desperate and no longer cares how obscene he is.

Trump also started to rehash some of his most inflammatory campaign rhetoric – probably a bad idea – from the attacks on a disabled reporter to blaming Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle for her tough debate questions. In each case, he tried to excuse his behavior or blame others for it.

After four successful days in Philadelphia, you’d be hard-pressed to find a Democrat in America that isn’t feeling proud and motivated.

Trump’s angry, post-DNC meltdown gives them another reason to smile today.
