After the phenomenal results of the Iowa caucuses, the late night shows were left wondering: How would Donald Trump take his defeat?

Conan O’Brien had a phone call with “Donald Trump” himself, who revealed the secret behind his seemingly gracious concession speech Monday night: Every single Xanax pill he could find. But then suddenly it all wore off, and we found out what The Donald really thinks: “@#$% Iowa.”
