One of the biggest stories in the Lamestream Media yesterday was the very important Congressional race in Ohio and whether or not Trump-backed candidate, Mike Carey, would lose against a large and outstanding field of other candidates. The mainstream was chomping at the bit to report a loss for a Trump-endorsed candidate—they couldn’t wait. In fact the Washington Post still hasn’t corrected their very old story. But lo and behold, instead of a loss, there was a landslide victory for Mike—a win far larger than even the most optimistic of polls. It was a great day for Ohio, but the story of this victory has been barely reported by the Fake News. If my endorsed candidate would have lost, it would have been nothing but front page. Such a double standard, but congratulations to Mike, he will never let Ohio down. – President Donald J. Trump
