Last week, a special election was held in Kansas to fill a vacant congressional seat. After the Republican candidate was declared the winner, President Donald Trump spent part of his Easter lashing out at how the media handled the results.

Trump on Twitter

Not long after Donald Trump was elected president, the attention quickly shifted to who would surround him in the White House. As the weeks moved forward, questions were raised over some of Trump's cabinet and administrative picks, including adding former Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo as the new director of the C.I.A.

With Pompeo coming on board to the administration as the C.I.A director, his seat in Congress was left vacant. A special election was set up, with Republican Ron Estes, Democrat James Thompson, and Libertarian Chris Rockhold all running to fill the void. The results were announced last Tuesday, but Trump decided to sound off on the issue during a April 16 Twitter tirade.

According to the New York Times, Ron Estes formally the Kansas State Treasure, pulled out the win with just over 52 percent of the vote, grabbing 63,505 votes in the process.

James Thompson came in a respectable second place, with 45.7 percent of the vote in a distract that Donald Trump won by 27 points in the general election against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton last November. Libertarian Chris Rockhold finished in distance third place, pulling in only 1.7 percent of the vote.

In response, Donald Trump took to his Twitter account not long after the results were announced and lashed out at the media for allegedly pulling back their coverage once a Republican was confirmed as the winner.

"The recent Kansas Election (Congress) was a really big media event, until the Republicans won," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "Now they play the same game with Georgia-BAD!" The former host of "The Apprentice" has spent much of his Easter Sunday on Twitter, which included various tweets to start the day. Trump railed against North Korea and the current tension between the two nations, while also taking a shot at the nationwide protests that took place over the weekend calling for the release of the president's tax returns.

Georgia on my mind

Donald Trump's reference to George is in regards to the upcoming special election being held this Tuesday to fill the empty seat left by Tom Price who was recently appointed as the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Democrat Jon Ossoff is currently polling in the lead over the 17 other candidates, with Republican Karen Handel in a distance second place.
