Donald Trump branded a horse a ‘junky’ and got trampled – 9 odds-on favourite takedowns

Now that Donald Trump isn’t on Twitter or Facebook, he issues ‘statements from the desk of Donald J Trump’ in the hope that other people will share them and they’ll go viral.

It’s what he had to say about the Kentucky Derby-winning horse, Medina Spirit, after it failed a post-race drug test this week.

It was shared by journalist Aaron Rupar, or @atrupar on Twitter …

… and prompted no end of mockery as you might imagine. Here are our 9 favourite responses.
