Former President Donald Trump's response to the red wave that never happened after Tuesday's midterm results came in was to lash out "at everyone," but now we've learned that that includes Melanie Trump. The writing was on the wall as to how Lumpy would take it if Republicans didn't prevail.

NewsHound Ellen reported yesterday that Trump said, "Well, I think if they win, I should get all the credit, and if they lose, I should not be blamed at all."

That is Donald Trump. That is who he is. He'll blame his own wife, who is not in politics, rather than accept some of the blame.

Maggie Haberman, the 'Trump Whisperer,' took to Twitter to say that the former President is blaming "everyone who advised him to back Oz," including Mel.

"Trump is indeed furious this morning, particularly about Mehmet Oz, and is blaming everyone who advised him to back Oz -- including his wife, describing it as not her best decision, according to people close to him," Haberman tweeted.

"There are people pushing Trump to reschedule his announcement next week, and several Rs have texted asking whether he will, but it’s risky and would be acknowledging he’s wounded by yesterday, something that some of his advisers insist is not the case," she continued.

"Worth remembering that Trump is a grown man who endorsed Oz over the objection of some of the people closest to him, and instead went beyond just endorsing and attacked Dave McCormick from the stage at a rally," Haberman added.

When Lumpy endorsed Oz in April, he didn't mention being urged to back the quacky TV doctor.

"This is all about winning elections in order to stop the Radical Left maniacs from destroying our Country," Trump said at the time. "I have known Dr. Oz for many years, as have many others, even if only through his very successful television show. He has lived with us through the screen and has always been popular, respected, and smart."

"He even said that I was in extraordinary health, which made me like him even more (although he also said I should lose a couple of pounds!)," he added.

Trump backed an unrelatable rich guy that did a campaign video on the costs of crudité. That's Trump's fault, not his self-absorbed wife's or anyone else's. Maybe Trump should have done more research instead of rewarding Dr. Oz for praising him.
