Despite all his grandstanding, hollow boasts and childish insults, Donald Trump only scraped a pitiful second place in the Iowa caucus last night – and no one is going to let him forget it.
The Internet — including several Republicans — reacted with pure joy at the news of Trump’s silver medal and we’ve scoured Twitter looking for the best reactions celebrating the pudgy presidential candidate’s first major loss.
Where better to start than this tweet from the man himself?

We like it when people get creative…
As for Trump himself, he hasn’t been on Twitter since the caucus…
Donald Trump hasn't tweeted anything racist, sexist, or anything at all in the past 15 hours… This has to be a record.

We’d like to think he’s reflecting on his loss, but let’s be honest, he’s probably trying to work out who he needs to pay off to make second place officially better than first.
