Jeremy Corbyn, a longtime left-wing Labour politician, won his party's leadership contest in a landslide vote this morning. And Donald Trump accidentally congratulated him. Into his endless timeline of compliments and insults came a sincere-looking comment from @HamishP95, a self-described Labour Party member with a couple hundred followers. Trump retweeted it.
The historically successful troll, who has previously joke-retweeted Trump, declared total victory.
