Historic Loser
It occurs to me that Donald Trump has now matched William Jennings Bryan's record of losing the presidency three times. Jennings by popular vote: 1896, 1900, 1908. Trump by popular vote: Nov 8, 2016, Nov 3 2020, and by attempted coup d'etat January 6, 2021.

The difference, of course, is that Bryan—he who would not "crucify mankind on a cross of gold"—is buried among the heroes of the nation in Arlington National Cemetery, while no matter the eventual—and surely gold-plated—locus of his earthly remains, Trump will live forever in infamy.
