As the New England Patriots performed a miraculous come-from-behind win to clinch another Super Bowl title, giving quarterback Tom Brady an historic fifth Super Bowl ring, liberals from coast to coast lapsed into despair that anyone close to President Donald Trump could become winners.
As soon as Patriots running back James White stretched over into the end zone to slam the pigskin down for that game-winning touch down, liberals took to Twitter to vent their outrage.
Immediately the hash tag #notmysuperbowlchampion started trending with many slamming Brady and Trump.
I'm protesting #notmysuperbowlchampion

Naturally, many liberals were crushed by Super Bowl 51 and took to Twitter to lament that it felt just as bad as how they felt on Election Day last November when Trump pulled his own come-from-behind win.
I haven't felt this anxious since 9pm on election night #SuperBowl

Trump won the election and now his favorite team has won the Super Bowl. Let it sink America.

Of course Pats win. This is a year when evil triumphs. Had Harry Potter come out this year, Voldermort would have won.#SuperBowl

Did the Russians hack the Super Bowl, too? Is nothing sacred?

Naturally many, many other Twitter users seemed to enjoy the liberal tears.
