WOW, SO THIS IS WHAT A TRUMP SUPPORTER THINKS AND ACTS LIKE …
Ever wonder just what appeals to a Trump supporter? All you need to do is take a look at the exchange below between Ted Cruz and a Trump supporter in Indiana. UNREAL. All the Trump supporter had was sound bytes and insults. Hmm, sound familiar? Because that is all Donald Trump has too. Take a good listen to the rude, obnoxious and ignorant behavior of this Trumpist as he is presented with facts about The Donald and he dismisses them all, even though they are facts and not lies. But because Trump calls everyone else liars, his supporters believe only Donald can be telling the truth.
But I must say, I am a bit surprised at Cruz for actually trying a debate a true believer. Legal Insurrection is spot on when they refer to this Trump supporter similar to what Republicans went through in 2008 with Barack Obama. Remember, fact don’t matter in this election; they never do when cults of personality take hold as happened in 2008 with Obama. Cruz is 100% correct, Trump is playing you all as the fool.
What gets me is that FOX News, the Donald Trump super PAC is playing this video continuously like its a badge of honor.
Why Cruz would bother debating Trump fans, especially Trump fans who are heckling him, I don’t know. It’s like Hillary trying to turn Obama supporters with a few words on the rope line in 2008. That’s not the way cults of personality work and Cruz knows it. Jamie Weinstein thinks Cruz was going for some sort of viral confrontation on the eve of the vote, knowing that the media would end up giving his case here against Trump lots of free coverage tonight when they re-run this incident on the news. That seems too clever by half. Arguing with a Trumper, especially one who’s spoiling to get in Cruz’s face, was as likely to produce some sort of trainwreck scene of Trump fans chanting “GO BACK TO CANADA” as it was a long disquisition against Trump. I don’t think there’s anything more complex behind this than Cruz’s supreme confidence that he can out-debate anyone, even some dude in shades smirking at him and howling about his “Goldman Sachs jacket.” This is a guy who talked his way into a Senate seat at age 41 and who outlasted 15 other Republican presidential candidates in the primaries this year. If Donald won’t debate him, why shouldn’t he go toe-to-toe with a Trump fan for a few minutes? I think he missed an opportunity, though, in not trying harder to bait the guy. Imagine how much more viral this clip would have been if he had said, “So, what do you think we should do with the Muslims?”
Don’t we make fun of Hillary Clinton supporters when we ask them what are her qualifications to be president, what has she accomplished and what do you like about her? The above Trump supporter struggled when asked the same question and could only come up with Trump is going to build a wall. A note to Republican, Conservative and Independent voters, this is the same type of voter you condemned in 2008 and 2012 who voted for Obama.
Former Establishment Republican Speaker John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the Flesh’ & a ‘Miserable Son of a Bitch’
JOHN BOEHNER IS THE EPITOME OF THE COUNTRY CLUB ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN WHO WE COULDN’T WAIT TO LEAVE OFFICE …
Hey Boehner, have another drink and a cry. Former Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner called Sen. Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh’ and further went on to say Cruz was a ‘miserable son of a bitch’. Hmm, coming from the likes of Boehner, Cruz should wear these words with a badge of honor. Sorry America and especially my fellow Conservatives, I find Boehner and his crying pathetic self exactly what is wrong with the GOP. Boehner is the epitome of the country club establishment Republican who forgot along time ago what the GOP party platform stood for and that government was of, by and for the people.
I find it quite interesting that the poster child who Conservatives danced with glee when Boehner left office and is the face of the establishment GOP is actually “golfing and texting buddies” with Donald Trump. Flashback, the Gateway Pundit reported one last cry from Boehner. That should give many pause for concern. Many have stated that they are supporting Trump because he is a political outsider, really? Who do you think was buying politician’s influence? When Conservatives were battling Pelosi, Reid and Obama, Trump was donating to them. So Boehner, who openly hated the Conservative movement, condemns Cruz and loves Trump. WAKE THE HELL UP CONSERVATIVES, ADMIT YOU MADE A MISTAKE AND DO THE RIGHT THING.
So, Mr. Speaker, how do you really feel?
John Boehner, the famously blunt ex-House speaker, left no doubt he’s not a fan of fellow Republican Ted Cruz, leaping off the sidelines of the presidential race Wednesday night to unleash a stunning verbal lashing of the Texas senator, reportedly calling him “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch.”
The longtime Ohio powerhouse had not been very outspoken on the race since retiring last year, but he held little back when asked about the Texas senator and underdog GOP presidential candidate during a forum at Stanford University.
“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life,” he said, according to The Stanford Daily.
He reportedly said he’s played golf with front-runner Donald Trump, describing them as “texting buddies,” and said his relationship with Ohio Gov. John Kasich “requires more effort” but they’re friends “and I love him.” He also said he’d vote for Trump in a general election – but not Cruz.
And yet another GOP insider and Republican who should be ashamed of himself, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) stated, “I fully agree with John Boehner, and maybe it gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz.” King accused Cruz of having “perpetrated a fraud and a hoax” with his push in 2013 to defund ObamaCare, which eventually led a government shutdown. Really, it was a fraud and hoax to try and to defund Obamacare? This was the very reason why Republicans were voted in majorities in the House and the Senate to do just that. Defunding and abolishing Obamacare is what the GOP ran on in 2010, 2012 and 2014 to do. And because the establishment Republicans did not do what they claimed they were going to do, in other words, lied to the very people who voted them into office, they establishment GOP finds itself with Donald Trump as their presumptive presidential nominee.
Hmm, it seems like all do not agree with Boehner and King, some Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord. Good grief.
CRUZ NAMES FIORINO VP TO JUMP START HIS CAMPAIGN …
Yesterday Ted Cruz named Carly Fiorina to be his VP running mate in an effort to jump start his GOP primary presidential campaign. Cruz praising Fiorino, a former Republican presidential nominee, as a fierce competitor “not intimidated by bullies” who has “shattered glass ceilings” in both business and politics. One might think this was a strange move by Cruz to announce a VP candidate so soon, but hasn’t this entire primary season been nothing shore of different and bizarre? In the grand scope of the primary races on both the Republican and Democrat sides, this actually seems quite normal. But the real question remains, will this unorthodox move change the momentum in the GOP primary race from Trump to Cruz and the primary vote next Tuesday in Indiana?
Ted Cruz announced Wednesday that Carly Fiorina will be his vice presidential nominee if he’s the Republican Party’s pick for president.
If nominated, “I will run on a ticket with my vice-presidential nominee, Carly Fiorina,” the Texas senator said at an Indiana rally before the crowd began chanting “Carly.”
The two appeared together in an hour-long event in Indianapolis, with Cruz alternating between lauding Fiorina and maintaining that he has a path forward in the race despite suffering a series of losses over the last two weeks. Fiorina, who followed Cruz, shared stories about her own background and about Cruz, and even sang to his two young daughters from the stage, as she also railed against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
She delivered a wide-ranging speech on Wednesday that highlighted Cruz’s embrace of conservative principles and of the Constitution, but she also aimed to highlight a softer side of Cruz, describing time spent on the campaign bus with him and noting how much his daughters “adore their dad.” She sang several bars of a song to his daughters.
“I know two girls that I just adore,” Fiorina sang. “I’m so happy I can see them more. ‘Cause we travel on the bus all day…we get to play.”
Donald Trump Sweeps I95 Primaries (CT, DE, MD, PA, RI) … But Do You Know the Real Story of the Night?
WHO’S LYING TO YOU?
Donald Trump swept through the I95 primaries last night taking all five states, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. Is it just me, but since when do Conservatives like candidates who win in liberal blue states? Wouldn’t that generally be a RINO?
What Fox News will tell you, the suddenly recent cable channel turned Trump Super PAC, other media outlets and many what I thought was once Conservative bloggers that Trump had a HUGE night, his best ever and that all others should get out of the race. They will some how make it appear that winning liberal dark blue states in a GOP primary is a good thing. FOX News et all will talk about Trump getting to 60% and this is the most fantastic and awesome thing ever. REALLY? Just curious, has anyone taken a look at the vote count in the 5 primary states from Tuesday, April 26? Is anyone mentioning how both Democrat candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders amassed a blistering number of votes Tuesday night that towered far above The Donald? The delegates may be important for Trump winning the GOP presidential nomination, but the voting shows that Trump does not have a snowballs chance in hell of winning any one of these five states in a general election.
Folks, you need to take a look at the volume of votes cast in ct, DE, MD, PA and RI. Its not even close. Did The Donald win 5 of 5 states last night? Yes he did. But please don’t get lost in the spin and the BS put out by others, including FOX News and their Trump love-fest.
The math does not lie America, most notably Republicans and Conservatives. Honestly, who cares whether Trump won all 5 states in last nights primary, they are all dark blue or blue states where a Republican presidential candidate will never win in a general election. All it tells me is that Trump is the most liberal of the three remaining GOP candidates. That is hardly a badge of honor.
CT: Donald Trump: 122,519 – John Kasich: 60,447 – Ted Cruz: 24,779 (Total # of votes: 207,745)
Clinton: 169,763 – Sanders: 152,895 (Total # of votes: 322, 658)
DE: Trump: 42,472 – Kasich: 14,225 – Cruz: 11,110 (Total # of votes: 67,807)
Clinton: 55,950 – Sanders: 36,659 (Total # of votes: 92,609)
MD: Trump: 237,132 – Kasish: 100,333 – Cruz: 82,286 (Total # of votes: 419,758)
Clinton: 533,656 – Sanders: 281,700 (Total # of votes: 815,356)
PA Trump: 892,702 – Cruz: 340,201 – Kasich: 304,793 (Total # of votes: 1,537,696)
Clinton: 918,649 – Sanders: 719,911 (Total # of votes: 1,638,560)
RI: Trump: 39,059 – Kasich: 14,929 – Cruz: 6,393 (Total # of votes: 60,381)
Sanders: 66,720 – Clinton: 52,493 (Total # of votes: 119,213)
Hmm, Remember when Conservatives actually supported Conservative candidates?
Five States Primary (PA, MD, CT, RI, & DE) Today Expected to Help Trump and Clinton Widen Their Leads
Today’s 5 state “Amtrak Primary” is expected to help the two presidential front-runners, Republican Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But what really will primaries in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware tell us about Donald Trump and the GOP primary? NOTHING. A note to those that are Republicans, Conservatives and Independents that lean right, these 5 states are blue and dark blue states. None of these states in a general election will vote for the GOP nominee, no matter who wins the nomination. Just like with Trump’s victory in the New York primary, not even Donald Trump stands a chance of winning against Hillary Clinton in Blue liberal states in a general presidential election.
Five states began voting Tuesday in the “Amtrak Primary” in contests expected to help the two presidential front-runners, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, rack up ever-wider leads in their parties’ crucial delegates counts.
For Republicans, the race for delegates remains a key focus, with Trump hoping to secure the 1,237 delegates needed before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July. His rivals Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich — now loosely aligned in hopes of stopping Trump — are not expected to significantly cut into the billionaire’s lead.
“I just hope everybody goes out and votes,” Trump said on Fox News on Tuesday as he continued to decry the electoral process as rigged and corrupt.
According to a FOX News poll ahead of the all important Indiana primary, Donald Trump leads by 8 points. According to the polls Trump has 41%, Ted Cruz is second with 33% and John Kasich is a distant third with 16%. Interestingly enough, without Kasich in the race, it’s 44 % for Trump and 42% for Cruz.Trump appears to lead among likely male and female voters over Cruz.
Full poll results can be found HERE.
Trump is ahead of Cruz by an eight-point margin among Indiana likely Republican primary voters: 41-33 percent. That’s at the edge of the poll’s plus or minus four point margin of sampling error. John Kasich comes in third with 16 percent.
Men are the key to Trump’s advantage. He receives 44 percent to Cruz’s 33 percent, while Kasich takes 13 percent.
Among women, Trump ekes out a three-point edge (36-33 percent), while 20 percent back Kasich.
Cruz is preferred over Trump among self-described “very” conservative GOP primary voters (46-35 percent).
The vote among white evangelical Christians splits: 41 percent Cruz vs. 39 percent Trump. This stands in sharp contrast to nearby Wisconsin, where the Fox News exit poll showed Cruz winning this group by a wide 22-point margin (55-33 percent).
Donald Trump Wins Rigged and Corrupt Republican New York Primary … Once Again Trump Benefits from the Process He Whines About
DONALD TRUMP WINS RIGGED AND CORRUPT NEW YORK PRIMARIES … WINS 60% OF VOTE AND TAKES 97% OF DELEGATES.
Last night Donald Trump won the Republican New York primary with 60.5% of the vote, Ohio Gov. John Kasich came in second with 25.1% and Sen. Ted Cruz in third with 14.5%. But wait, it would appear that Trump garnered 89 delegates, Kasich 3 and Cuz 0. Three delegates are still outstanding. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE, HOW CORRUPT!!! But Donald Trump was all happy, smiles and giggles last night saying, “We love News York”. Of course he was because he won. Had he lost he would have been the miserable, sore loser that we have seen in the past. Let’s hope the shake up in the Trump team means this guy will act with a little more class as Trump has to mend many GOP fences if he does not want to get creamed in a general election, if he wins the Republican nomination.
First of all, did any one not think that Trump was going to lose New York or even that it would be close? Its Trump’s home state, he better have won. And for the folks and those at the FOX News Donald Trump super pac, Cruz would have won by the same amount had Rubio not been in the race at the time of the Texas primary.
Seriously Mr. Trump, how can you be happy with winning only 60.5% of the vote, but taking 96.7% of the delegates? Why should you get 36.2% more of the delegates than the votes you received? I think Donald needs to give the delegates he received through this rigged and corrupt process back to Kasich and Cruz. Its only fair. Under the Donald Trump plan, he should have received 56 delegates, Kasich 23 and 13 for Cruz. NOT 89!!! But this dude still has the CO-JONES to actually whine about a process that he has benefited from. UNREAL. In his victory speech Trump said, “No body should get delegates withing voting”. Really Donald? Care to give the ones that you did not win to your opponents?
In a campaign where both sides debated New York values, what New York values most is candidates who call it home, it seems.
The ultimate value of New York, though, is questionable in the march to the party nominations. Wins by the front-runners don’t alter stubborn mathematical realities that are likely to leave Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton with company in the race for a while longer.
Trump blasted through his supposed ceiling by reaching a new high-water mark, and in the process kept his hopes of capturing a delegate majority alive. He did not and could not, though, significantly widen his narrow path to a first-ballot win.
Clinton dispatched with Bernie Sanders in the state Sanders was born in, and where Sanders outspent Clinton substantially. But neither this nor any likely subsequent wins will end the Sanders challenge, not to mention the issues his candidacy has elevated, to Clinton’s regular discomfort.
Um, everyone does realize that Trump did not win Manhattan, right? Of all places in New York ti lose. There very location where his mighty Trump Towers and empire is located. Who honestly thinks that Trump could beat Hillary Clinton in a general election in New York? Never going to happen.

WOW DONALD, THAT IS MIGHTY BIG OF YOU …
Donald Trump said Sunday in Staten Island, NY. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.” Really Donald, you are still whining about this near one week later? With regards to Trumps comments that he hopes there is not violent, I would say, you are hardly doing anything to prevent it as you get people to a fever pitch with your rhetoric. There are plenty of things in politics that are rigged and corrupt, however, this is not one of them. I wonder is this is how he acts in his own business when he has to follow the rules that are set up to bid a contract? It is disconcerting that Trump does not seem to grasp the delegate process that has been around forever. If he cannot understand and navigate his way thru this process, what is he going to do when it comes to the electoral college and the job of president of the United States?
Folks, you don’t get to be a king when you are president. Note to Republicans, isn’t that one of your main gripes about Barack Obama?
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that he hopes a contested Republican convention in July “doesn’t involve violence” if he is denied the nomination during second-ballot voting.
“I hope it doesn’t involve violence. I hope it doesn’t. I’m not suggesting that,” Trump told reporters on Sunday here in Staten Island. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.”
Trump said Saturday that the Republican National Committee is in for a “rough July” if he does not receive the nomination despite his overwhelming delegate lead. If the billionaire fails to cross the 1,237-delegate threshold necessary to clinch the nomination outright, anti-Trump conservatives hope to challenge him at the convention and install an establishment-friendly alternative.
More from Ann Althouse …
Said Donald Trump today. Does he sound like he’s encouraging violence even when he’s saying he hopes there won’t be violence? If so, it’s because he doesn’t say “I don’t want violence” or “I urge my supporters to refrain from violence.” There’s something oddly passive about “I hope it doesn’t involve violence” — as if he holds no sway with his supporters, as if he’s suggesting it’s up to the other side to resist doing the things that will necessitate violence from my people. So I hear a vague, deniable threat. And this too contains a vague, deniable threat:
