Another day, another nonsensical cacophony of rhetoric by Donald J. Trump, Republican frontrunner for the GOP Presidential election. Funny thing is, he is contradicting his OWN spokeshole, Paul Manafort.
Yesterday, in a speech in Rochester, the Trumpster asserted the following.
During his Fox interview Monday, Trump said the Colorado process was changed over the summer “to help a guy like Cruz.” He also accused his rival of trying to steal delegates in South Carolina, which held its Republican primary almost two months ago, on February 20. Despite his third-place win there, Cruz won three delegates at congressional district meetings, which Trump says is “not the way democracy is supposed to work.”
“They offer him trips, they offer him all sorts of things, and you’re allowed to do that,” Trump said. “You can buy all these votes.
“I’m an outsider, and I came into the system…but the system is rigged, it’s crooked,” he added.
Actually, Ted Cruz cannot do any of this. If he did he would be breaking all sorts of federal campaign laws, and you can bet your last schnitzel sandwich that the media would be all over it, obtaining receipts, filming delegates dining in expensive restaurants and charging it to “Ted Cruz Campaign.” But that’s not going to happen.
But before we dismiss this nonsense, let’s review the tape with Trump’s new henchman, Paul Manafort. Dan Spencer wrote an article in which Manafort accused Cruz of “using Gestapo tactics,” which last I heard is not exactly bribery. I’m sure the allies in the good graces of the Geheime Staatspolizei were not treated to luxurious vacations in Berchtesgaden.
So which is it, Donald…did Cruz buy or torture the delegates?
