“If you lose, they’re gonna say ’Trump suffered the greatest defeat in the history of the world. This was the greatest,’” Trump said at a rally for Bevin. “You can’t let that happen to me!”
Trump’s critics said there was another “big message” in the results, one about the 2020 election. They took to Twitter to celebrate gains for Democrats, especially in traditionally red areas, and to warn that Trump and his allies ― including Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) ― could be facing uphill reelection battles next year:
You’re up next Mitch McConnell.

When I told my fellow Virginia Republicans that the #BlueWave was not over post 2017 & 2018. That toxic Trump has destroyed the GOP brand. I was laughed at. Tonight’s results show that I was spot on. Look at suburban vote totals. Women & Independents are gone! #VALeg

Impeachment Inquiry backlash?
Trump campaigned hard in (red state) Kentucky for the incumbent Republican Governor.
The incumbent Republican Governor just went down in flames.
What happened to all the winning Donald?#BlueWave

Democratic voters are absolutely DISGUSTED by Donald Trump.
Dems don’t need to pander to anyone. They should embrace full-throated progressive policies and get America back on track.

Another sign of the #BlueWave spreading through the Virginia suburbs.
Notably, this is the board previously chaired by Corey Stewart (Trump’s 2016 Virginia campaign chair and 2018 GOP Senate nominee) https://t.co/Pkd2VZAbn0

Nothing is more encouraging then to see the blue wave continue to roll on unabated

Remember, it’s never a single wave.
It’s always waves (plural).
We are seeing blue wave after blue wave.
We need to keep it up.

Trump went to the World Series and got booed.
Trump went to a UFC fight and got booed.
Trump went to Kentucky and the next day the state elected a Democrat Governor.
