Donald Trump took a hit as his ‘low political I.Q’ Democrat rivals on Tuesday night as results from the New Hampshire primary revealed a bad night for Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Andrew Yang as Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar made impressive gains.
After a disappointing fourth place finish for Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, Trump claimed that in her post-results speech calling for unity, the senator was really ‘sending signals that she wants out’.
The president also took hits at Tom Steyer, calling out the amount of money the billionaire is spending on his failing campaign, and ‘Mini Mike’ Bloomberg who wasn’t even on Tuesday’s ballot.
Trump did have some kind of praise for one Democratic candidate despite keeping an unusual choice of nickname in place for Pete ‘Bootedgeedge’ (Buttigieg).

Donald Trump had plenty to say about the Democratic candidates after the New Hampshire primary saw tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang and Colorado Senator Michael Bennet drop out
Warren was the first in line for Trump as he took to Twitter as the count began to say the senator wanted to be back at home enjoying a beer with her husband instead of still being on the campaign trail.
‘Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, is having a really bad night,’ he wrote.
‘I think she is sending signals that she wants out. Calling for unity is her way of getting there, going home, and having a ‘nice cold beer’ with her husband!’
Warren is set to finish in fourth place in New Hampshire with less than 10% of the vote as fellow senator Amy Klobuchar leapfrogs her into third place. Neither Warren nor former Vice President Biden, who finished in fifth, are leaving New Hampshire with any delegates
Trump’s comments were referring to Warren’s speech to supporters earlier in the night when she called for unity in the party.
Billionaire Tom Steyer was next in line as Trump called out his dismal less than one percent result despite the money being spent on his campaign. Steyer had previously made an early move to call for Trump’s impeachment in TV ads, a move that the president was eager to bring up again.

‘Impeachment King Steyer (how did that work out?) spent 200 Million Dollars and got less than 1% of the vote in Iowa, and only 3% of the Vote in New Hampshire. Could it be that something is just plain missing? Not easy to do what I did, is it?’ Trump tweeted.
As the news came that tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang and Colorado Senator Michael Bennet were dropping out of the race tonight, Trump took fire at Democrats in general writing ‘a lot of Democrat dropouts tonight, very low political I.Q.’ as he retweeted an old ‘Keep America Great!’ message.

Trump claimed the Democrats who dropped out on Tuesday had ‘low political I.Q.’
Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg was not on the ballot in New Hampshire but did receive some write-in votes. Despite this, Trump claimed on Twitter that it was ‘a very bad night for Mini Mike!’
Earlier on Tuesday, the president had some more words for ‘Mini Mike’ but in reference to his golf game, saying that he has a ‘tiny club head speed’ as he retweeted a picture of himself and Bloomberg together on a golf course.
The president finished by saying that it was ‘very interesting’ that former Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg looked to finish just over a percent below Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
‘Bootedgeedge (Buttigieg) is doing pretty well tonight. Giving Crazy Bernie a run for his money” Trump wrote.
Trump has not yet commented on Biden or Klobuchar.

Sanders declared he had won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday night in a speech to his supporters.
Although he took the victory by less than 2%, the win gave Democrats their first declared winner in the presidential nomination process after a messy Iowa caucus.
Sanders had 25.6% of votes when he declared victory and the race was called by the Associated Press and TV networks – putting him just 1.3% ahead of Pete Buttigieg in second place on 24.4%.
The Vermont senator was the front runner in his neighboring state but his narrow victory does nothing to settle the Democratic field – except by winnowing it.
Sanders appeared in front of cheering supporters to claim victory in Manchester after Andrew Yang and Michael Benet announced they were leaving the race and Deval Patrick said he was ‘considering’ his position.
