UPDATE, 4:30 p.m. Wednesday: Trump ended up deleting some of his Tweets, including one about him calling for a revolution and mistakenly saying that Obama lost the popular vote.

But the Trump Tweets didn’t stop by any means on Wednesday. Responding to Brian Williams’ comments on the air Tuesday night — see below for details — Trump used six Tweets to fire back.

He continued Tweeting throughout the day about the election, commenting on everything from the stock market to Jeep production in China to global warming. For your entertainment, follow the action here.


Donald Trump has been relentless on Twitter for the past few days, pushing people to vote for Mitt Romney.

Tuesday night, Trump’s Tweets got a little crazy. (And yes, this is Trump’s real account. It’s verified.)

After Barack Obama was re-elected for his second term late Tuesday night, Trump seemed a little bummed out.

But then Trump exploded. The meltdown started with this one, calling the result a “travesty,” and continued.

Then, Trump called the Electoral College a “disaster for democracy.” He probably wouldn’t have said that after the 2000 election, when Al Gore won the popular vote.

A few celebs responded to Trump. Alec Baldwin, who once appeared on Trump’s reality show, “The Apprentice,” asked him this:


And on the air, NBC’s Brian Williams said this, prefacing Trump’s Tweets with “They’re as they say, ‘out there,’ and getting an airing tonight, so you might as well know about it,” adding that Trump “has driven well past the last exit to relevance.” Ouch!

Remember that “The Apprentice” airs on NBC. So Williams is calling out a fellow network star — not something you’d always expect.

We’ll be following closely tomorrow to see what else Mr. Trump has to preach — he’s been quite vocal lately. Earlier today, he’s demonstrated his anger in a one-on-one showdown with Dallas Mavericks owner and wealthy entrepreneur Mark Cuban. Well, maybe not so wealthy — Trump Tweeted that Cuban doesn’t have any money.

    Congrats to Twitter for withstanding this barrage of activity! This is fantastic engineering work.

    Last time I checked, this is still America and he’s entitled to freedom of speech. Apparently the market isn’t too happy with an Obama victory either.

      One shouldn’t assume that his right to free speech implies he has a right not to be called out for being a shameless self-promoting moron.

    Trump doesn’t tweet; he toots.

    “Remember that “The Apprentice” airs on NBC. So Williams is calling out a fellow network star — not something you’d always expect.”

    Unless of course, this is all manufactured for the purpose of keeping The Donald’s name in the news and driving viewership for his show among those who voted for Romney.

      Good point. But from the looks and sound of it, Williams still probably thinks Trump has lost his mind.

        Fair enough. Still, I wouldn’t put it past some producer at NBC to wind Williams up knowing he’d go to down on Trump.

        At the end of the day, I just don’t trust the impartiality of these news orgs that are now part of of an entertainment conglomerate.

        Oh Walter Cronkite, where are you when we need you most?

    Trump is the man. At least he’s honest about things.
