Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has taken over the frontrunner position in Iowa, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll. Trump obviously isn’t happy about it, and retweeted a quote of someone questioning the mental capacity of Iowa Republicans.


This latest poll marks the first time that Trump wasn’t in the lead in Iowa, which has to be a tremendous shock to the real estate mogul’s mountain-sized ego. Trump deleted the tweet, which insinuated the Iowans have brain “issues,” and blamed it on an intern.

Everybody knows that Trump is the one behind tweeting his insulting remarks. He’s not fooling anyone. This is the way he handles every situation when he is challenged.
