"Sad!"​ is Donald Trump's favorite word to describe things, people, and situations he doesn't like. He does this so often, in fact, that when I tried to load every "Sad!" tweet into this post, our CMS software just gave up and crashed. Sad. Instead, here's a breakdown of how much he's used "Sad!" every year for the past five years, along with some of his best "Sad!" tweets. Spoiler: even though 2016 isn't over, it's already his saddest year ever. That makes two of us, Donald.
