Today’s big news from the campaign trail is that Sen. Cruz won a majority of delegates to the Republican National Convention. Since the delegates are technically not bound, however, it’s impossible to state with certainty that they’re Cruz delegates.

On the pro-Trump spin trail, Trump’s supporters insist that following the well-written and long-established rules for the Republican National Convention is anti-American. For instance, Laura Ingraham is upset that the rules are being followed, saying “GOP Establ delegate games in TN & LA proves that they wd rather blow up the party than change on issues driving @realDonaldTrump voters.”

Like others who’ve been infected with Trump’s mind control disease, Ms. Ingraham’s insistence that following the rules is playing games. I’d love hearing Ms. Ingraham explain that statement. Yesterday, a Branch Trumpidian insisted that Republicans were stealing Trump’s nomination. The Trumpsters didn’t like hearing that it wasn’t Trump’s nomination until he accumulated a majority of the delegates. While Trump frequently talks about leading the silent majority, the truth is that he’s leading a noisy plurality. This picture speaks volumes:

The implication is that only Trump voters are “patriots, vets and voters.” Obviously, that’s a lie. While there’s no doubt that patriots, vets and voters support Trump, there’s no doubt that patriots, vets and voters support Cruz and Kasich, too.

For Trump’s supporters to hint that they’ve got a lock on those people is intentionally insulting and divisive. If Trump insists that he’s trying to bring the GOP together. There’s nothing in his supporters’ words that say he’s capable of uniting people other than uniting them in opposition to him.

It’s time for people like Laura Ingraham to accept reality that they aren’t the final arbiters of who’s patriotic and worthy of support.

    I like that image, Gary.

    When a cop writes Trump a traffic ticket, equal resonance everywhere? What? Vets and patriots get ticketed too?

    Is there a chance Trump got his ego at a drive-up window at McDonalds, and said, “Supersize it?”
