Well, today is the big day. Primary Day in Indiana.
Yes, today is the day Trump claims if he wins, Cruz is FINISHED. He’s not the only one, of course.
The media is jumping on that bandwagon, too. I heard Maria Bartiromo say it twice today within the space of a couple of minutes, and CNN’s Alisyn Camerota was asking why that WASN’T the case to a Cruz supporter. How about, BECAUSE TRUMP STILL WON’T GET THE NUMBER OF DELEGATES HE NEEDS???
Of course, a Trump supporter on CNN, a former member of Reagan’s government, Jeff Lord, just smirked, laughed it all off, declaring that people want a WINNER and they will coalesce around Trump because that is “human nature.” Well, he isn’t paying attention then, because MANY of us, the MAJORITY of us, did NOT vote for Trump.
Oh, and Lord claimed that it WASN’T a problem that Cruz got more votes but fewer delegates than Trump comparatively speaking. Why? Because only Trump plays the victim card, throw tantrums about the “rigged system,” and whine constantly for DAYS. Ted Cruz wouldn’t because he is ABOVE that sort of childish behavior. But that Lord dismissed out of hand that Cruz actually got more votes in Wisconsin than Trump did in his native New York is just typical of Obama, I mean, TRUMP, supporters…
But the process isn’t done yet, and I am sick to death of the media constantly trying to force Trump down our throats, asking every candidate questions that begins with or includes something about what Trump has said or done, or in some way ALWAYS referencing Trump.
I am not the only one sick of it. Sen. Ted Cruz apparently had had enough of this MSM tactic to determine the Republican Nominee. Here, via Right Scoop, is his outstanding response to an MSNBC reporter who tried to play that game, beginning around the 9:00 minute mark:
GOOD FOR CRUZ!!!! It is about damn time the media was held to account for ALWAYS asking questions framed somehow and some way around Donald Trump. I, for one, am sick to death of hearing about Donald Trump INCESSANTLY. Let the people see who Ted Cruz is. Ask his surrogates why they are backing him. Period. Not in relation to Trump or anyone else, but why him. What a concept THAT would be, huh?
“Enough about Donald Trump.” Amen to that, Sen. Cruz. Amen to that. I have heard too much from him and about him to last me my entire life. Heck, I have heard more about him than I ever WANTED to hear. I didn’t care all that much for him BEFORE the Primaries, and now that I have heard more from him, I dislike him INTENSELY.
I hope and pray the Hoosiers will care more about putting someone in the White House who has character, integrity, intelligence, and actual policies rather than an arrogant, belligerent, hate mongering, misogynistic, bully. I guess we will know the answer to that by tonight.
What else is on your minds today? This is an Open Thread.
