this is a major issue. The truth is, Cruz is just far more organized, more detail-oriented than Trump. Trump has been a pampered child of privilege his whole life. That shows in several ways, including this and his constant whining and threatening. It really is tantrum-like. I seriously doubt that hardcore Trumpkins will wise up to this, but one can always hope…
I mean, Reince Priebus had to explain to Trump how the whole delegate thing actually works. And Trump was NOT pleased and immediately noted that his people had failed him. He was angry.
The billionaire was clearly frustrated during last week’s trip to Washington where he visited with Republican National Committee officials over the delegate rules that will be crucial at the party’s convention this summer.
“Trump was disappointed that his team was not up on the delegate count,” a Trump source said.
Meeting with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, Trump and his team simply appeared unaware of how the delegate process worked, a Trump source said.
How on earth can you be a major candidate and not know this stuff? You almost expect to hear Trump shout in exasperation, “Don’t we hire servants to do this kind of thing?! You just can’t hire good help these days!”
This is about work ethic and competence, and Cruz beats Trump all hollow on both counts. Now we may get this loser Trump as the GOP nominee! And that because enough people are snookered, many willingly so. But of course Trump will lose the general, as has always been the plan. Uh, he is a loser.
Yes, I think that was the plan from the get-go. When Trump started getting victories, I think he started to think he could actually win. Of course, he can’t. And it was a no-lose proposition for the Left. He is such a buffoon and so far Left that he makes Hillary look not so extreme in comparison.
Trump alienates a HUGE segment of Republican voters and they just won’t buy the crap he is shoveling. They will just stay home on election night. If he were to somehow prevail in the general, he would be a very Leftist “Republican,” (RINO) anyway, but if he loses (which is most likely), Hillary takes the Presidency and there is even a harder Left person in there. It was just no risk to the Lefty king-makers. No matter what happens, SCOTUS is hard Left for a generation. And even if Trump now strays a little from the reservation, the original plan will go forward. He might even make the GOP lose the Senate! The plan is already in motion and nothing but Trump not getting the nomination can stop it. You need to understand that the Leftists are HUGE Donald Trump fans. They know the gig, even if too many on the Right still just don’t get it.
Sanders has thrown a bit of a wrench into the master plan, but it won’t matter in the end. Even Sanders would beat Trump. Look at the polls! Just think about that for a moment. Then Trump has repeatedly threatened violence if he doesn’t get what he wants, and his hand-picked stooges have a history of violence. It should make you very queasy. Very queasy, indeed.
THAT is why people of good sense will never vote for Trump. Never. He is a turd. Hillary and Bernie are total turds, as well. But at least I don’t get crap smeared on me if one of them gets elected. I’d rather have Hillary win and NOT get crap smeared on me than have a virtually identical Leftist in Trump get elected and then have crap smeared on me, as well. This is the con of the century, folks! Sorry, I am not fooled. I’ve seen too many con men in my life not to recognize the species.
Look, Trump is NOT Conservative at all. If you are, for Heaven’s sake don’t vote for Trump! This is a bit of a test for those who consider themselves Conservative. Be wise. Think about what you are doing. This is not the time to go off half-cocked because you are angry. I understand the anger. I share it. Boehner and his dinosaur ilk were a disappointing and discouraging scourge. Paul Ryan has been a bitter disappointment. There are still far too many Trump-like RINOs in the Federal Gov’t. But the solution is NOT to go off half-cocked now and vote for Trump. The solution to being ugly is NOT to cut off your nose, as big and disfiguring as it may well be.
