Donald Trump gave a very short concession speech Monday night in Iowa, and those who were expecting the fireworks from the first debate had to settle for a very happy looking second-place finisher who vowed to go on to beat Hillary Clinton or “whoever the hell they throw up there.” For his family and his supporters, though, Trump had nothing but love to express.

    So the Trump campaign finally bought the farm in Iowa?

    • Booj

      I’m okay with putting him out to pasture.
      (Seriously, how has the Cruz campaign not made this joke yet?)

      • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

        Do we need a #TrumpBuysTheFarm joke hashtag here? Let the good comedic agricultural times rrrrrrrroll…

  • kd

    What a loser, I hear he is doing very bad at campaigning.

    Trump is gonna #FeelTheBarn

    • JR48

      I surmise that Bernie doesn’t understand the Clinton machine because it’s never truly been pointed in his direction.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        He’ll get a crash course on it between now and next Tuesday. I honestly hope he becomes the nominee, he’d be slaughtered in a general regardless who the Rep nominee is.

    • Deplorable Jesse-Messy Hammer

      GAAAH don’t say that, since the only way DT’d feel Bern’t is if he & Bern were the nominees, GAAAH. Anyhow, let’s ease up in such a poignant moment for DT, huh? I’d love it if he bought the fa–…“A farm”, I meant to say, I’d love it if he bought “A farm”…in Iowa…That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

  • Karla1953

    He would not be the first that bought the farm LMAO yea I am a bit giddy this is so swell

    • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

      Wonder if he’ll use eminent domain to scoop it up.

  • FranklinWasRight

    Twitchy, are you going to report on Dr. Carson’s tweets regarding foul play at the caucuses?

    • grais

      Give us a hint.

      • FranklinWasRight

        Cruz supporters at the caucuses announced that Carson was dropping out to sway his voters into switching to Cruz. That’s a big no no.

        • wrestlefan01

          if carson would buy some charisma and not put everyone in the room asleep when he speaks he to may have had a real shot to win.

        • grais

          I didn’t find anything on Carson’s Twitter. I don’t know what it’s about.

          • FranklinWasRight

            He made the remarks to supporters and reporters. I thought he tweeted it but I can’t find it now. Here’s a Time article with quotes from the campaign.


            It seems the Cruz campaign also sent out an email yesterday to supporters implying Carson was dropping out and telling them to let his supporters know.

            People from the caucus sites have confirmed that Cruz supporters were telling Carson supporters that he was dropping out and so they should vote Cruz instead. There are tweets confirming this.

            All this took place after Carson states in national interviews that he would NOT drop out before New Hampshire, and the trip to Florida was just a pit stop.

        • Karla1953

          Except that does not seem to be on Carsons Twitter and not sure about that NBC person j/s I saw it on Twitter but most of the voting as done

          • grais

            I found some stuff at google. Says “supporters” not “campaign.” Shitty if true.

          • Karla1953

            Yeah I agree I can overlook the mailers but that not so much

          • grais

            Two links, both msnbc, two different headlines, one says “Cruz’s team,” the other says “supporters.” Both link to the same article, which says “supporters.”
            If it was supporters and not his team, I don’t know how I can hold it against Him.
            I dunno….

          • Karla1953

            Yeah I agree I am just tired I guess but you are correct

          • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

            IF anyone did it. More likely to be TRUMPETTES.

          • vetgal1970

            It wasn’t just Cruz supporters or whatever speculating, there was a whole thread here about people speculating over Carson going home

          • FranklinWasRight

            I thought I saw it on Carson’s Twitter, now I can’t find it. But his comments were made during a speech to supporters last night, and the shenanigans are being reported.


          • Karla1953

            Yeah I need to see how this plays having said that who issues a statement in the middle or right before a caucus that one is going to FL to rest and then to a Prayer Breakfast and later says they need more clothes. The whole thing was odd IMO

        • JV

          Another big no no is spreading rumor and innuendo without proof

          It’s called bearing false witness

    • Karla1953

      I did not see anything like that link please

    • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

      Those aren’t Dr. Carson’s tweets, just some two bit reporter CLAIMING Dr Carson said something

      • FranklinWasRight

        Carson said this during a speech to supporters.

        Here is an article in case you really think it’s all a lie.

        I realize politics is a blood sport, but I like Ben Carson and wanted to see him put in a respectable showing. This disheartens me, that he would be used like this, after he said on national television he would NOT drop out before New Hampshire.

  • grais

    “Low energy loser speech”


  • jhawk90

    “That’s what left of a Trump speech without the poll bragging.”

    game, set, match.

  • wrestlefan01

    wow hillary only up by 3 votes..thats way to close something underhanded will happen

    • nc ✓s & balances

      Sheesh, Dems carry those around in their back pockets like “mad money.”

    • vetgal1970

      O’Malley sitting on that 1% and announced he is suspending his campaign. You know she’s losing her mind

      • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

        He’s declared that he’s handing them over to Trump…

        […aaaaaaaand Hillary’s head explodes]

  • Jeff Henderson ✓Bona Fide

    Will he plant Ethanol?

    • vetgal1970

      Better than anyone’s ever seen before, it’s going to be so unbelievable

      • journogal

        It’s going to be YUGE!

  • Arkuy The Great

    Yeah, “buy a farm” is not exactly the phrasing I would choose…

  • jhawk90

    Holy crap – y’all see zombie Bill Clinton behind Hills giving her speech? Wow – rough.

    • Adam Wood

      Could he please be a little MORE obvious that he was leering at some hottie in the first row?

      Good grief.

  • TCDave

    …and turn it into a golf course!

  • John Urban

    Trump “loses” by ONE delegate to Cruz in a state where Cruz employed 14 times the number of volunteers, while Trump still leads in RCP in NH by 26%? And Rick Wilson posted 26 gloating tweets over that? Seriously?

  • Adam Wood
    • Chris Carter

      I want that hat.

  • Maxx

    Fine….buy your farm…you can store all your manure there.

  • tamanator

    He can buy more than one farm with his “eminent domain” card!

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    Trump looked really tired. Guess he’ll be announcing his 3rd party run after a good night’s sleep.

  • Bile Gull

    Trump was never supposed to win Iowa, the entire political establishment there have had their knives out for him for MONTHS. Fact is, Trump outperformed what any other candidate in his position could have done.

    Now the question is, did the media skew the late Iowa polls that showed Trump leading to make this result look like a let down? I wouldn’t put it past them.

  • Astro Jackson

    ah hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha buh bye donald duck:-)

  • moodydon

    This might be off topic… that said, a long time friend and California liberal just posted this on his Facebook page about Trump and Iowa:


    I responded with: When you type with all caps, you sound just like Cher…

    • Hi This Is My Username

      This is what I am hating about the election, all of the crazies come pouring out on all sides. It seems even worse this time around.

  • JosephBloughs ✓Viagrafied

    A funny farm perhaps? If so, good for him. The first step is recognizing you need help.

  • sukietawdry

    Good grief, it’s Iowa. Reagan didn’t win Iowa. George H. W. Bush didn’t win Iowa. Neither did McCain or Romney. You don’t need to be a Trump supporter to know Iowa doesn’t mean poop.

  • JosephBloughs ✓Viagrafied

    Trump the farmer? He better have a talk with Cruz to get the 411 then…

  • wharfrat

    Trump is all hot air,he bought a Vineyard in Virginia and hasn’t returned since,if he buys a farm it will lay fallow and never be used,he needs to stick to NYC.

  • Hi This Is My Username

    Will he turn it into a limo parking lot?

    • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

      Helipad, runway, and non-Indian Casino…

  • Owl

    Trump led every Iowa poll. His main point in every speech was he was leading every poll. Yet, when actual voting happened, he lost.

    I think the lesson here is you cannot win Iowa without retail campaigning and a traditional GOTV apparatus, like Cruz had. Big rallies and depending on enthusiasm to GOTV will not win the day there.

    I’m interested to see what the NH polls do over the next few days…

  • notenoughtime

    Why all the hatorade! The best thing to happen to the GOP has been Trump.

    • honestAbesurd

      I could say the same thing about the hate from Trump folks about CRUZ.

  • marcus tullius cicero

    …Trump is bringing NYC values to a farm in AWOI !

    • honestAbesurd

      He did support and endorsed Bill De Blasio for mayor.

  • honestAbesurd

    He meant a ethanol farm.

  • Nos Nevets

    Trump loves Trump.

  • JV
  • Zombie Nixon

    Conservatives have been complaining that they don’t have strong nominees. They finally get one and chase him away. (TRUMP)

    Romney, McCain and Bush were weak and didn’t defend themselves and their positions.

    Good luck with Marco guys… You all are getting what you deserve.

  • MDBrock

    That should be easy for Trump. Just get the state to force a couple of farmers to sell off a few hundred acres for a huge money making hotel/resort in the area. NO PROBLEM. WE CAN MAKE A DEAL.
