Former United States (US) President Donald Trump will connect any bit of news to his false claims that the 2020 election was rigged against him even a failed drug test for the horse that won the Kentucky Derby.
On Sunday, news broke that Medina Spirit, which won the Derby last weekend, failed a post-race drug test and now risks becoming only the third winner in the 147-year history of the famed horse race to be disqualified, pending a second test and potential appeal from trainer Bob Baffert.
Trump, who has turned to posting statements on his own personal website since being banned from Facebook and Twitter in the final days of his presidency, saw horse racing’s latest ugly headline as new fuel for his grievances.
According to the ex-president’s important missive to the public, “So now even our Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, is a junky. This is emblematic of what is happening to our Country.”
He then added, “The whole world is laughing at us as we go to hell on our Borders, our fake Presidential Election, and everywhere else!”
Judging by Twitter reactions, most people are laughing at Trump for having a meltdown over the racing industry news, with one commenter writing the one-term president is “legit losing his mind.”

Medina Spirit was the record seventh horse trained by Baffert to win the Kentucky Derby, but Baffert’s Hall of Fame career is now plagued by scandal, as five of his horses have failed drug tests in the past year.
