UMNO presidential candidate Khairy Jamaluddin seems to have found something to laugh about despite losing to Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in the UMNO presidential elections. On his Instagram account, he posted a selfie with former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, also his father-in-law. And the caption?
“Mantan Presiden UMNO Bersama mantan calon Presiden UMNO. Lulz,” which translates as Former UMNO President with Former UMNO Presidential Candidate.
The post garnered close to 90,000 likes with over 1,800 comments. Many voiced support for the former UMNO Youth Chief, asking him to continue fighting for the party.
After the announcement was made on Ahmad Zahid’s win, Khairy posted a brief congratulatory message on Twitter. However, his next post read, “Wait, Argentina just scored.” Since the 2018 World Cup is underway in Russia, the results of UMNO’s presidential party elections coincided with the Argentina vs France match.
He later tweeted this:

He seems to take his loss pretty well. We wish KJ all the best in his future undertakings, and chin up! 😉
