Donald Trump Says Having to Get 1,237 Delegates For the Nomination Is ‘Very Unfair’ (VIDEO)

REALLY DONALD, CRY ME A RIVER! HOW ABOUT SOME CHEESE WITH THAT WHINE?

As reported at Mediaite, in an interview with Donald Trump yesterday GOP presidential candidate front-runner Donald Trump whined that getting 1237 delegates for the Republican nomination was “very unfair.” Really Donald, has the candidate who has made such brash and off the cuff un-presidential comments now become a whiner? You knew the rules when you started your campaign. This is not horse shoes or hand grenades, 1237 is the amount of delegates required to win the GOP nomination on the first ballet. But I guess it should be changed just for you.

Please Donald, get back to campaigning and stop the complaining. I am sure if you were in second place you would be saying just the opposite. Do I think Kasich shoould drop out of the race, of course. Do I think the GOP establishment and the RNC are a bunch of idiots and they have done a lot behind the scenes to prevent outsiders like Trump and Ted Cruz from winning the Republican nomination, yes. But getting 1237 delegates is fair.

The WAPO:

It’s very unfair, the 1,237. The reason it’s very unfair — and I think I’ll get there, I think I’ll get there! — but the reason it’s very unfair is the following:

When I started there were 17 candidates and people never says this — I’ve never even heard it said — those early states — nobody says it and it’s very unfair — but on a lot of those early… there were so many candidates that if you got 30% or 25%, you’d win and it would be an unbelievable victory. Honestly, Kasich should not be allowed to run and I’ll go opposite on you: he hurts Trump much more than he hurts Cruz.

John Kasich Could Win a Contested Convention … And No One Would Vote For Him in The General Election

WELL THAT’S ABOUT ALL HE WOULD WIN …

The Politico is reporting that Ohio Governor and GOP presidential candidate could win a Republican contested convention if the GOP primaries fail to produce one candidate with the necessary delegates for nomination. Kasich has won one state, his own. Oh sure, lets nominate the third place guy. Hell, why don’t you just nominate Jeb Bush while you are at it. Two things here; one, consider the source and two, it would be about the only thing that Kasich wins because if the Republican Establishment pond scum ever manipulated such a happening, no one would vote for him in the general election. Let alone, if the GOP establishment ever screwed Donald Trump over like this, his supporters would stay home and Trump might even run as a third party candidate.

WTF

A note to the ignorant and power hungry Republican establishment, right now Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are first and second in the Republican primaries. The two individuals who are considered political outsiders. Are you getting the message from the American people yet? THEY HATE THE GOP ESTABLISHMENT AND WANT YOU ALL GONE!!! If you pull a stunt like nominating the establishment guy who you like, you will feel the wrath of the electorate that has not been seen in years. The people are sick of the GOP establishment making promises to get elected and then doing nothing. We are sick of your lies. If you meddle in this process and do not do right by the GOP base, in 2016 the Republicans will lose the presidency, the House and the Senate.

In the event of a contested Republican convention this summer, John Kasich is the candidate most acceptable to GOP delegates.

That’s according to members of The POLITICO Caucus – a panel of political insiders in seven battleground states – who said Kasich would be the most palatable of the three remaining Republican presidential candidates in a contested convention, despite the fact the Ohio governor is last in delegates and the only one mathematically eliminated from clinching a majority before the July convention.

The verdict was hardly unanimous: Only a 45-percent plurality of GOP insiders said Kasich was most acceptable, with the others divided between Ted Cruz (33 percent) and Donald Trump (22 percent).

But insiders said Kasich has alienated fewer Republicans, and his campaign – he has thus far declined to participate in the personal back-and-forth that has defined much of the Republican race – has left him better positioned to court delegates who are supporting, or bound to, other candidates.

“John is the only candidate that is left on the stage that has crossover appeal to all factions of the party,” added a New Hampshire Republican. “The way he has conducted himself in this election has offered him the opportunity to be an acceptable choice for the delegates. Everyone else will be carrying deep battle scars into Cleveland. John will be able to bring different factions together where others can’t.”

Former GOP Establishment Presidential Loser Mitt Romney Rips Donald Trump as a ‘Phony’ and a ‘Fraud’ … Hmm, Flashback, That’s Not What Romney Said Before When Praising Trump (VIDEO)

HMM … WHO IS THE PHONY AND FRAUD?

Really, who wants to hear anything from an individual who epitomizes exactly what is wrong with the republican party and why the GOP base is so pissed off at Republicans? Oh, did I mention that Mitt Romney was a presidential loser who was so gutless and wishy-washy that he could not find the spine or CO-JONES to defeat and completely defeatable Barack Obama? But that is not stopping Mittens Romney from taking to the podium to rip 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump. Amazing. Wasn’t it the establishment who was wanting Trump to say he would support the GOP presidential nominee and not run a third party challenge against the Republicans? Well look at the establishment cry-babies now. Please tell me these fools in the establishment GOP are thinking of having Romney enter the race to challenge Trump? Does the GOP party just not get it? The Republican base hates them!

Mittens Romney – the face of establishment GOP losing politics

Mitt Romney loses

A note to Romney … Dude, your time has come and gone and you blew it. No one needs any advice from a middle of the road, establishment Republican who lost to Barack Obama.

Mitt Romney on Thursday will slam GOP front-runner Donald Trump as “a phony” and “a fraud” who is “playing the American public for suckers” in a major speech on the 2016 race.

“His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University,” the 2012 GOP nominee plans to say at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City at 11:30 a.m. ET. Romney will argue that “a Trump nomination enables” Hillary Clinton to win in November.

“His domestic policies would lead to recession,” Romney will say about Trump. “His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president. And his personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill.”

Hmm, well that is not what Romney has said in the past regarding the Donald when he was singing his praises. So you get to decide who the real phony and fraud is. Watch the video below where Romney has only ringing endorsements and praise for Donald Trump. So what has changed Mittens?

What happened to the Mitt-Donald lovefest of 2012, when they said:

“It’s my honor, real honor, to endorse Mitt Romney,” Trump said, with Romney and his wife standing nearby. Calling Romney “tough” and “smart,” Trump said, “he’s not going to continue to allow bad things to happen to this country.”

Romney responded by praising Trump for “an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works and to create jobs” and for being “one of the few who has stood up to say China is cheating” in international trade.

Donald Trump Threatens Third-Party Run After Being Booed at SC GOP Debate

ONCE AGAIN THE DONALD THREATENS A 3RD PARTY RUN AFTER NOT GETTING 100% HIS WAY AT SC DEBATE …

It appears once again that Republican presidential candidate is threatening a third party run in 2016. One that he knows full well would hand the presidency over to the Democrats and either Hillary Clinton or Bernie sanders. Now there is a true patriot who cares about his country more than himself.  One has to wonder how Donald Trump is going to operate as president, if elected, as it would appear in the primaries, that if he does not get 100% of his way, or if some one criticizes him, his response is to act like a bully and terrorize people with threats, profanities, insults and threats of law suits. Trump is now whining after the South Carolina debate that by stacking the debate audience against him, the RNC is in default of its pledge of fairness in the campaign process. REALLY DUDE? Could the debate audience distribution of tickets been handled better, yes. But for the love of all things holy, could this guy just focus on the big picture and get out of the petty weeds? The sore loser who doesn’t get his way instead floats the idea of a third party run instead. UNREAL.

Trump knows that if he did run as a 3rd party candidate, he would split the vote with the Republican nominee and all but hand the presidency, the Supreme Court and the Congress over to the Democrats. So I ask, what kind of a man would do such a thing?

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump did not close the door Monday on a possible third-party run, accusing the Republican National Committee of breaking its pledge to stay neutral in the race.

“The RNC is in default,” Trump said during a news conference here. “When somebody is in default, that means the other side can do what they have to do.”

The New York billionaire also criticized Republican Gov. Nikki Nikki Haley, saying she had failed to protect South Carolina from Syrian refugees who could pose a danger to the state and the possibility of Guantanamo prisoners being transferred to the Navy brig outside Charleston.

“A governor has a lot of power people don’t realize,” Trump said, three miles from the brig. “A governor has a choice.”

We have huge issues in this country. These problems can’t be solved by bluster, antics and theatrics.
