What Did Donald Trump Just Say Is “Not Worth It?’ (UPDATES)

After a rare 19 hours away from Twitter, Donald Trump put this out:

Huh? What’s not worth it?


From Allahpundit:

Pro tip: If you’re a candidate for office and you’re complaining about not being given your due, make sure your target is the media or “the establishment.” Not the voters.

Never mind the fact here that Trump isn’t entirely self-funding. What does “not worth it” mean? This sounds like a man who’s one or two more disappointing finishes away from throwing in the towel. For good reason: One or two more disappointing finishes and Trump will effectively be done.

I think he’ll hang in there and take one more crack at a win in South Carolina even if Rubio (or Cruz) shocks the world and beats him in New Hampshire, but this is not a guy who’s built temperamentally to endure defeat after defeat, especially if his support in each state starts declining. Face will need to be saved at some point, sooner rather than later. If he’s 0 for 3 after SC, he’s out.

Ben Shapiro:

We haven’t answered yet just how glass Trump’s jaw is in New Hampshire. But he isn’t helping himself by essentially telling his own followers that his sacrifices aren’t worth it. Complaining in the wake of his first loss isn’t becoming – he should be playing up his performance in Iowa and then talking optimistically about how he’s going to beat all comers in New Hampshire. Instead, he’s obsessing and pouting.

Jim Treacher:


Way to go, Iowa voters. Don’t you realize how lucky you were to get this chance? Don’t you realize how badly you blew it? He’ll stay in the race, despite your insolence, but he’s not going to forget this. You’re screwing with the wrong guy, you stupid farmers.

I can see why people like the way Trump is running his campaign. They’re tired of canned, focus-grouped responses to everything. They’re tired of the media manufacturing gaffes and expecting the Republicans to grovel for forgiveness. They’re tired of the phoniness of it all. Trump is a refreshing change from all that tediousness.

But personally, I’d prefer a president with the barest modicum of control over his emotions. Donald Trump is a big crybaby. With tiny baby hands.



About Bob Sikes

A long time ago and a planet far, far away I was an athletic trainer for the New York Mets. I was blessed to be part of the now legendary 1986 World Series Championship. My late father told me that I'd one day be thankful I had that degree in teaching from Florida State University. He was right and I became twice blesses to become a teacher in the late 1990's. After dabbling with writing about the Mets and then politics, I settled on education.

    Some things just can’t be bought. Especially when you diss the voters and ignore the debate.
