PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I will tell you about the Democrats. They raised a fortune for him, they fought like hell, they said they were going to win. All of the television networks, other than Fox which really has treated us fairly, by the way. They have. But they built these studios, CNN. Hey, the camera just went off, I can't imagine. It's covered live, the camera just went off, I can't imagine why. This phony NBC television network. They actually had one of the people saying, "you know, it was a little rainy last night, maybe that was the difference in Karen's race." Can you believe that? But they had these beautiful studios, and if Karen Handel had lost, they would have blamed it on me, which is fine. But if shehad lost, they would have been there for weeks, talking about it, this would have been the greatest defeat in the history of American politics. When she won, when they said projected winner is Karen Handel, then they said "we switch to another program," right? It was so short they couldn't have gotten out of there fast enough.
