Schadenfreude was the name of the game as several celebrities pointed out that Trump’s “brand” was all based on being a winner and many were looking forward to him spinning the second-place finish. Many have been re-tweeting Trump’s tweet from a few years ago, where the real estate mogul and reality star quoted Walter Hagen’s immortal line “No one remember’s who came in second.”

Billy Eichner and other celebrities ruminated on the proposition that Cruz might actually be worse than Trump. Keith Olbermann, a longtime adversary of Trump’s, simply tweeted the hashtag #ByeFelicia.
Yeah, Ted Cruz is a psycho. But it’s still nice to see Trump lose.

My husband trying to console me. “Cruz is utterly unelectable! It’s the best thing!” And yet. AND YET

Let’s all celebrate that Trump lost tonight and deal with the fact that Ted Cruz is a delusional nightmare person tomorrow! Huzzah!

I hope Trump doesn’t try standing in the middle of 5th Avenue and shooting someone tomorrow

I’d assume it’s safe to say that Trump is the Donald Trump of sore losers..

So who does Trump fire tomorrow?

Fortunately, it’s not like Trump made his brand about winning all the time or anything. #IowaCaucus

Trump is so pissed about coming in 2nd that he’s threatened to move to Canada and run for president there.

The hardest thing Donald Trump has ever had to sell is second place.

The Donald just announced he may even buy a farm in Iowa. But where will he tan? Where will Ben Carson tan?

Mr. Trump, it appears we’ll have to wait a bit to get sick of all that winning you’ve got planned for us.

Thank you, Republican #IowaCaucus voters, for deleting a gloating Donald Trump from my television screen. We’ll talk Ted Cruz later.

Chewing on the carcass of the caucus ws not that exciting but I did enjoy seeing the wind get blown our of Trump’s sails.
