Trump: Doug Jones Won On The Write-In Votes

The Hill reports:

President Trump congratulated Democrat Doug Jones for winning the Alabama Senate race Tuesday night. Jones defeated Republican Roy Moore in a close election for the open seat, becoming the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in Alabama since 1992. The result was a major blow for Trump, who backed Moore despite a series of allegations that the former judge had sexual relationships with underage girls when he was in his 30s.

  • Dramphooey

    “Libs have now lost their biggest issue.” Our biggest issue wasn’t your party running a pedophile for office.

  • IamSmartypants

    Trump lost twice in the state that gave him his largest margin of victory a year ago. Strange lost the primary with Trump’s backing, and Moore also went down.

    MSNBC reported Trump’s support is down to 48% in Alabama.

    • John30013

      Yep, there’s definitely a story here about Trump’s falling support. Let’s hope that trend continues for the 2018 elections.

  • BeaverTales

    Whine all you like, douchebag, but the Dems are going to win more Senate seats in 2018, and then you’ll see how Obama felt after the midterms. Don’t forget the Biden rule…

  • Paul

    Well, yes, the number is write-in votes is greater than than Jones’ margin of victory, which to me means that there were Republicans who would never vote for a Democrat but couldn’t bring themselves to vote for the child molester

  • Stogiebear

    The only fake news here is that Dump wrote that tweet.

    Roy Moore Retires From Politics To Spend More Quality Time With Someone’s Kid

    • Todd20036

      LOL for real

  • Todd20036

    Even if Alabama swings red next year, talk about a harbinger!

    Trump and McConnel invested heavily in the election and lost what is usually a safe red senator.

    If the democrats’ testicles continue to drop, we may have a blue senate in a year, and that will stop Trump from fully wrecking this country

    • Paula Key

      and Dems vaginas start to purr…..

  • thatotherjean

    Politics in this country is still an awful mess, but it got a little bit better tonight.

  • JoeMyGod

    The Moore campaign is refusing to concede.

    “The law states that a margin of less than .5% calls for a recount. We know God is still in control.”

    • Halou

      I thought the voters were in control of who does and doesn’t get elected.

    • Treant

      OK, sure, let’s wait for Birmingham to come in. Right-wing…Birmingham…

      God has said, “fuck this shit.”

      • FAEN

        He’s probably consoling a 14 year old.

    • Stogiebear

      He really has his heart set on visiting all those malls he’s never been to in northern Virginia.

    • Dramphooey

      It is very disturbing the creep that introduced Moore smirkingly invited the media to go see the Alabama Secretary of State about the possible recount.

      • RaygunsGoZap

        Did you see the interview with the Sec of State? He was an enjoyable goofy guy but when someone asked if Moore’s reps were coming to discuss results….his reaction was hilarious: “I hope not. I don’t want to see Mr Moore tonight”

    • Christian1234567

      CNN currently shows Jones at 50%, and Moore at 48.4%, with 99% of the precincts reporting. Of course, Moore the Molester will probably still call for a recount.

    • N876

      Jones is currently at 1.5. Unless they start magically finding votes, no way there’s a recount.

      • Christian1234567

        NYT shows 100% of all precincts reporting with Jones at 1.5% lead, so there should not be a recount.

      • Rambie

        Moore can pay for a recount even if the spread is over .5% /sigh

        So the money beg for a recount will start in about an hour

    • Gigi

      God is in control and she said that she hates you, Roy.

  • Dramphooey

    They’re going to try and steal it.

    • Treant

      At +20,000 now and still growing, that’s not going to be easy.

    • JCF

      Dems are SO not gonna allow it!

  • Treant

    No, Dumpy, he won on the “Fuck Trump votes.”

  • netxtown

    I’m hoping this will be the death of his stupid ass tax overhaul.

    • Rambie

      We wish! But the 1% want their tax cuts

    • John30013

      Unfortunately, McTurtle has already stated that Jones won’t be seated until after the Senate’s winter break. Presumably, they will have passed the tax scam by then, unless Collins and one other GOP senator break ranks and vote against the conference committee’s final bill.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    “We been put in a hole.” Was she 14?

  • Dramphooey

    Why do I feel “god is in control” means “in Alabama, whites are in control.”

  • Halou

    Trump didn’t write that.

    • DoctorDJ

      Indeed.
      Far too reasoned and conciliatory.

      • danolgb

        If you click through, the claim that was based on was from May 2016. Yes, Hillary had strict rules on how that money would be spent. But at the time of that article, that money was pretty much sequestered for the general. It’s the same thing Donna Brazille was whining about. She wanted control of the money, but it’s common for the winning primary contender to control the DNC’s purse strings and that money was redistributed based on competitiveness.

    Sarah (honey) ~ the people of Alabama have spoken, and in this election the majority vote actually prevailed.

  • Leo

    There is as of right now a 1.5% vote difference and according to the Alabama SoS they’ll be counting the military, provisional and absentee ballots next Tuesday.

    The margin of victory is almost exactly the same amount as the number of write-in votes, ~22,000.

    They need to make the difference of a full point so it may seem far-fetched but this is Alabama. Stay alert because things might get weird.

    • houstonray

      Secretary of State of AL just said ALL the absentee ballots have been counted so that’s good. He also said there were not that many outstanding military votes to be counted.

      • Treant

        Was it Michigan where they suddenly found thirty kajillion votes, just enough to put their Supreme Court candidate over the top?

    Now I just found out that Moore will not concede until there is a recount. Boy, this fucking moron cannot let this charade of an election go or step down.

    Update: The Alabama Secretary of State said a recount will not take place the margin of error will not change the results. Therefore, Moore go suck a big, fat juicy cock because everyone knows what you really want in life.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Ewww, Moore sucking cock…. brain bleach.

      • Dazzer

        Utterly bizarre JMG fact here: one of Mussorgsky’s muses – one of his pictures at an exhibition – ended up spending her later life in my hometown in north west England. She was a tremendously lovely woman who used to teach music to kids to earn a living and she ran a kids choir for free just to teach us lumpen Macc kids how to enjoy music and sing.

        She sort of failed with me because I couldn’t sing. So she put me at the back of the choir and told me to pretend I was singing and not actually make any sounds that would put off the better singers.

        It’s been so long now that I can’t remember her name, but I remember going to her house and she’d have Mussorgsky blasting out in the living room and her telling me excitedly; “That’s me, that’s me!”

        It’s a truly lovely memory and thank you for reminding me of it.

      I can’t imagine what the hell they could put in a Trump Library. Maybe walls of scrolling tweets from throughout his painful presidency.

          I wish I could put that in a fixed font. An IBM mainframe assembler program that could have been written 40 years ago that would still work today. Try that on Windows. It won’t run the same program that worked yesterday.

          ABEND means stop immediately and DUMP means throw up everything that is in memory (for that single address space – another thing Windows doesn’t understand).

    Before i start…

    I WAS WRONG!

    Yeah, I said all along that the Ayatollah Roy Moore would win. Let me say it again:

    I WAS WRONG!

    And I couldn’t be more thrilled that I was wrong!

    In any event, I predict tweets are coming from Trump attacking Roy Moore, blaming him, calling him “weak” and “flawed”. He’ll find some way to try and erase his support for Roy Moore and pin the blame on anyone (and everyone) but himself.

    The biggest loser tonight, though, was The Evil Steve Bannon, who put all his might and influence behind Roy. His mythical status as the new “king maker” of the GOP has been shattered.

      It’s been a long time since I, like you, have been so happy to be wrong.

    • You were not only one wrong. I felt Moore would win by 53/47. I also thought the sexual assaults shock would wear off by Dec. 12th election.

      I am very glad that I was wrong..

    Welp. Breitbart won’t post a fresh thread.

    They’re still arguing, I assume, over how to spin the loss.

    • Max_1

      Hea… They won the pedo vote. So they still have something to celebrate.

    I enjoy being wrong on occasions like this. And I understand all the back-and-forths in your reactions to numbers and voters and such. But can’t we just sit back for a second, get your alcoholic beverage of choice in hand, and toast the new senator? We won. Celebrate, for god’s sake. Yes, the fucking moron is still in the orange house and Pence is being quiet and Boozer Bannon looks worse than ever and the turtle is now doing mental mathematical gymnastics AND WE WON. Can we ever be just a little happy?

      Dear Brent,
      Let’s keep this simple and not go to the misogyny and homophobia…
      Was the fatal flaw:
      A) His removal from the bench the first time
      B) His removal from the bench the second time
      C) When he was barred from the mall
      D) When he fondled a 14 year old girl
      E) All of the above
      F) Other (please explain)

  • kareemachan

    No fucking way did Moore write this.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    There’s no fucking way Trump wrote that tweet.

  • Gianni

    Trumps tweet is sort of a left-handed congratulations. “The write-in votes played a very big factor.” I presume he meant to say: “…a very big PART”. So he’s saying that the write-ins on the Republicant side took away votes from Moore and that’s how Jones won? Gee, Donnie, you just can’t bring yourself to believe that a Dem of much better character actually beat that low-life creature you backed. Hmmmm……somewhat embarrassing for you, isn’t it Donnie.

  • Gianni

    I take back any unkind thoughts I had or words I said about the majority of voters in Alabama. I truly didn’t believe there were enough better thinkers to put a Dem in the Senate.

  • AJ Drew

    Appears that many REP-registered voters in AL chose to not vote rather than make a choice. Which, really, ended up being a vote of conscience in and of itself.

  • AJ Drew

    “write in votes” … for whom, anyone know?

  • Chris Baker

    Fake news! I don’t believe Trump actually said something nice without making a dig at someone else. Let’s wait till after he hears what Fox News says, then we will see some angry tweets.

    • Reality.Bites

      Screw nice. Trump wouldn’t say anything that grammatical. This is an aide.

    Trump didn’t write that tweet.

    By now media should be able to tell which ones are probably not his or certainly not his and report them that way. But that would be journalistic.

  • Chris Baker

    Hmmm. This is good news for the reality show “Trump, President”. He can now blame the Democrats in the Senate when things don’t pass. When the Republicans were in control of both houses of Congress he had no enemy, now he does

    • EdA

      The republiscum still control both houses.

  • Reasoning101

    To all those saying Trump couldn’t have written the tweet himself that congratulates Doug Jones: of course he did. Any sane, decent person would have stopped at the first sentence. And yet, he persisted. Had to get his nasty digs in. This has middle-of-the-night-on-the-toilet Trump written all over it.

  • RoFaWh

    That tweet did not come from Trump. “Congratulations” has more syllables than he can handle.

    Edit: I see that many others have come to the same conclusion. This should teach me to read JMG comments oldest-first. (It won’t.)

  • starskeptic

    Add ‘write-in’ to that list of things Trump doesn’t understand!
