‘They Just Didn’t Get It’: Trump Trolls Hollywood and DC With Video of Their Election Night Predictions

On Sunday, President Donald Trump tweeted a highlight reel of misguided election predictions from celebrities, politicians, and analysts, saying that “they just didn’t get it, but they do now”:


The video shows clip after clip of politicians and celebrities promising that Trump would never be president of the United States.

George Clooney: “There’s not going to be a President Donald Trump.”

Former President Barack Obama: “Trump will not be president.”

Former Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.): “Trump will never be elected president of the United States.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.): “[Donald Trump is] a man who will never be president of the United States.”

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.): Donald Trump is not going to be president of the United States. Take it to the bank.”

Rosie O’Donnell: “He will never be president.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): “Donald Trump is not going to become president of the United States.”

After the series of “Trump will never be president” sentiments, the video launched into report after report projecting Hillary Clinton to win the election.

The video concluded with a brutal series of clips from The Young Turks’ Cenk Uyger on election night as state after state went to Trump.

Uyger responded to the video in a tweet, saying, “No, we didn’t get it wrong. […] We were right about how horrible he would be as president”:

Out of the two-and-a-half-minute video, only one commentator predicted Donald Trump would win the presidency: Ann Coulter.

Many conservatives, of course, loved the video:

While many conservatives saw the video as a victory lap, some saw the video as rather petty for the president to be tweeting.

President Trump’s tweets will always be a point of contention for both supporters and non-supporters. As Uygur pointed out, we will see in 2020 what America thinks of him.

    Jonah Goldberg: Yes. It IS amazing. We definitely won’t stop thinking about 2016. So many smug elites mocked our pick — THE PEOPLE’S PICK — and praised the “popular” one. You guys were freaking out over 2008. We were so put down as not likely to win, and caused the biggest upset of the century on November 8, 2016. So yes. Forgive us if we gloat a bit for the next several years. And it’s tantrums like this that will ensure that you stay out of the office.
