Commenters on the Internet piled on President Donald Trump late Saturday night after the GOP candidate for Lousiana’s governor seat lost to sitting Governor John Bel Edwards who held his seat in a state that Trump carried in 2016 by nearly 20 percentage points.
Trump visited the states multiple times to support Republican Eddie Rispone, but to no avail.
To add insult to injury, a Trump tweet on Saturday that read “Louisiana, 3 hours left, get out and vote for @EddieRispone for Governor. Lower taxes and much more!” was deleted and made unavailable by the president.
You can see a screenshot and responses to the president below:

I think it would be a GREAT idea for Elise Stefanik to invite Trump to have a bunch of rallies in NY.

What's the over-under on how many points Trump will claim Rispone was down before he came in and almost saved him?

Good news, Republican Senators! Trump can do for you what he did for Matt Bevin and Eddie Rispone.

In more evidence that everything Trump touches dies, even though Trump held multiple rallies and begged the crowd to give him a "big win" in the election, Republican Eddie Rispone was defeated by incumbent Democrat John Bel Edwards in the Lousiana’s governor’s race.#AMJoy

Trump is toxic.

The moral of the story is if you want to lose a race invite low energy @realDonaldTrump for a rally.
