Speaking at a press conference on the results of the midterm elections Wednesday, President Donald Trump unprecedentedly called out Republican House members who lost their elections and chastised them by name for refusing to embrace him on the campaign trail.
“They did very poorly. I’m not sure that I should be happy or sad, but I feel just fine about it,” Trump said.
He then rattled off several names including Carlos Curbelo, Mike Coffman, Mia Love, and Barbara Comstock.
"Too bad, Mike…Sorry about that, Mia."

"Too bad Mike," Trump says, making fun of Rep. Mike Coffman for losing. Also seems to take glee that Rep. Carlos Curbelo and Rep. Barbara Comstock for not embracing Trump. "Mia Love gave me no love. And she lost. Too bad. Sorry about that Mia."

Trump said that each of the Republicans he named decided to “stay away” from his agenda on the campaign trail.
