Donald Trump tweet of Walter Hagan quote about 2nd place now prophetic

Donald Trump was a loser, of sorts, last night in the Iowa Republican caucuses.

He finished second behind Texas senator Ted Cruz just a day after the Des Moines Register's final poll showed the billionaire was headed for what seemed months ago to be an unlikely win.

It wasn't to be.

So, in the schadenfreude of Trump's defeat, folks turned to Trump's Twitter account to have some fun. They turned to a tweet from 2013 in which Trump quoted Walter Hagen, a five-time PGA Championship winner:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">“No one remembers who came in second.” - Walter Hagen</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/417760911177162752">December 30, 2013</a></blockquote>
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Of course, the quote is so generic that it could well be applied to anyone, not just the 11-time major champion. However, we can rule out that it wasn't Ricky Bobby or Donald Trump who said it...first, at least.

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
