Donald Trump Blames the GOP for Losing Delegates

Setting things up for a riot
Politics • Views: 53,563

Donald Trump may have screwed up, big time. By focusing on a populist xenophobic message that ignored the way Republican politics actually work, he may have doomed his campaign.

And now he’s predictably trying to incite the deluded right wing masses against the Republican Party itself: Donald Trump, Losing Ground, Tries to Blame the System.

“Our Republican system is absolutely rigged. It’s a phony deal,” he said, accusing party leaders of maneuvering to cut his supporters out of the process. “They wanted to keep people out. This is a dirty trick.”

His charges built on comments in the last few days by associates, senior advisers and Mr. Trump himself, seeking to cast a shadow of illegitimacy over the local and state contests to select delegates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.

By blaming the process rather than his own inadequacies as a manager, Mr. Trump is trying to shift focus after Senator Ted Cruz of Texas outmaneuvered him in delegate contests in states like Colorado, North Dakota and Iowa, losses that could end up denying Mr. Trump the nomination.

Note that Trump has previously said his followers will riot if the Republican Party takes away what is rightfully his.

Donald Trump can go f—k himself,” Rourke said. “His wife said, ‘Well he’s a tough guy.’ He’s not a tough guy. He’s a bully and he’s a b—-h, and he can suck my f—king d—k.”

Too subtle

That video is a pisser. I used to run into Rourke a lot in NYC clubs back in the day, and he was always the funniest tough guy in the room.

Much too subtle. It doesn’t have any hints of childhood “molestation” either to, from, for or against Trump, his mom, his dad, his sibs or his offspring.

To be fair the execrable little queef-weasel sort of has a point, what happened in Colorado was about as undemocratic as things can get. The State GOP specifically decided to forgo holding any sort of primary or caucus poll just so they could cut voters out of the delegate selection process entirely.

What’s grimly amusing in all this dangerous nonsense is that Trump is completely correct in saying that the GOP powers that be are totally uninterested in what voters want, even if these voters are GOP primary voters.

Perhaps it really will take riots at the GOP convention to show the media and mushy middle in the US what the Republicans have become.

It’s old news that Republicans don’t care about the votes of any non-GOPers, and constantly seek to suppress “enemy voters”.

It’s delightful new news to see this same garbage being applied vs. the GOP base.

Colorado Republicans saw the writing on the wall last summer, Trump was going to win BIGLY in the caucus. I’m not saying what they did was right, but they took drastic steps to deny Trump the delegates in Colorado.

I’ll remind folks that certain Colorado Republicans are just as batshit as any of them. Hell, this guy is a state representative at the statehouse in Denver.

My primary, er electoral primary desire as we run up to our June primary is to repeat those words to his face, and end his run with our votes. Don’t want to talk about Cruz as in first things first, end the Trump run. My sole hesitation is that his republican replacement might be truly awful, and harder to defeat come November.

Ivanka Trump is calling the voter registration laws that kept her from participating in the New York primary as “onerous”.

The only thing I have to say to her is that she ought to try being a non-white voter in a Republican-controlled state like Alabama or Texas. Her inconveniences are insignificant in contrast with those places that disenfranchise entire groups of citizens.

So you already have Republican Congressfolks saying they won’t attend the convention.

Cruz is actually crafting a strategy to get delegates, Trump issuing brass knuckles to his supporters while feeding them gunpowder and bile while Kasich thinks he is just going to grab the nomination while no one is looking.

Should prove to be interesting.

I received an emergency phone upgrade because Mrs. Fish dunked hers in the toilet; only to find out that she’d prefer to use her old, mostly-working phone. Ugh, that was money I didn’t need to spend, but oh well - it was mostly reimbursed by the company, and now we have a spare phone we can either trade in or as a backup if hers goes in the drink again. How go things among the lizardfolk on this cool, cloudy, lonely night?

I mentioned before, I figured his lack of innate evangelicalism would bite him in the ass with the wingnut right. Unfortunately, it turns out that my faith in my Christian-in-name-only brethren was misplaced; many of them went ahead and voted for The Donald because he was popular, he resonated with their inner xenophobe, and he wasn’t Hillary or Bernie.

Things going OK in Philly. Looks like we’re going to get a nice stretch of weather for a change after today’s early rain. So I’m planning on some photo hikes over the weekend.

Had good news on the income taxes front - Feds owe me for a change, and the state owes me a little as well. So I have a little extra in the wallet for the planned vacation trip in early June.

Beyond that I’m trying to ignore the politics, get my exercise in, and working towards following my diet better in order to lose a little more weight. (Down 10-15 pounds and a size in the waistline since last November.)

Filed my taxes today, actually. Found out that I overpaid *last year* too, which added to my refund. I also found out that I would have been exempt from the health insurance penalty had I not had insurance. I pay some of the highest premiums in the nation, even with subsidies. (It’s really expensive here, which results in a highly transient population, you don’t want to know how many times I’ve loved then lost.) Doesn’t help that the area I live in is economically skewed by a glut of 10+ bedroom houses occupied two weeks out of the year.

The unfortunate thing for the GOP is that The Donald is not so much self-destructing as he is disintegrating into a cloud of shrapnel. The problem for them was always a Catch-22: to avoid damaging the party would have meant attacking his most popular utterances, but the popularity of those utterances would have meant attacks on them would do damage to the party. As much as they try to deny it, what makes the man so popular with their base are the very things that will doom them in the general election. He IS the party in its most concentrated form, a smarmy asshole and bully whose ego and megalomania makes it impossible for him to ever admit he’s wrong.

I think he is the party base in its most concentrated form. I grant that this may be a distinction without any real difference…

But I don’t think folks like Rubio or Bush or Ryan get off at the idea of torturing inmates or building a wall on the Mexican border or seeing protestors get beat up. To varying degrees they may tacitly accept their supporters making these sorts of utterances, but that’s not really what their vision of the party is about. We were bringing in plenty of wretched Irish workers in the Gilded Age.

What Trump may most precisely represent, I think, is a personification of the split between the business-GOP and the downtrodden-white-working-class-GOP. Which is fascinating, because by all rights a person of his station ought to identify with the former, but he’s a lifetime loser like the latter.

The funny thing is, if the delegates were proportional, Trump would actually lose delegates from his current count because he won winner-take-all Florida and Arizona with less than 50% (not to mention winning all of South Carolina while taking less than a third of the vote).

It’s fun to think about the end of the demise of Limbaugh, but I am pretty sure IHeartMedia (aka Clear Channel) will come up with some kind of face saving voodoo to hide the extent of the pay cut involved and keep him around.

The reason is this: It is next to impossible for anyone to generate a penny during middays on radio. If his show can bill 10% of what he did at the start of the previous deal in 2008, that is still many times more than they will be able to squeeze out of that daypart otherwise.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Limbaugh wind up on SiriusXM. After all, they gave Glenn Beck his own channel of 24/7 derp. And that’s where Dr. Laura also wound up…

My employer contracts with Caremark for prescription services, and Caremark basically discounts prescriptions ordered via mail order. So I mailed off my prescriptions a couple of weeks ago and waited. This morning, I decided to check where my evil psych drugz were at. Well, the Post Office was in the process of returning them to Caremark, because the address was incomplete. Even though my entire address, including unit number, was on the pre-printed form, the person who packaged the prescriptions left off the unit number. So my prescriptions are currently in Post Office Hell.

An hour later, and a phone call to Caremark and it boiled down to no, they couldn’t just send me another order of evil psych drugz. I would have to get another set of prescriptions and send them in to have them filled. And I would have to pay the $44 to FedEx these prescriptions overnight to San Antonio. Luckily my shrink had written a new set of prescriptions when I saw him less than two weeks ago, so this was doable. But I had to leave work early to get the order to FedEx before its shipping cutoff and then pay the $44.

Supposedly Caremark is going to call on Thursday to see how things are going, and I plan on asking them what corrective actions they plan on taking to ensure this sort of thing does not happen again. I mean, this is what I do at my day job. They should have some sort of checklist or dual custody if they can’t get an address right. *rolls eyes*

re: #76 mmmirele

My employer contracts with Caremark for prescription services, and Caremark basically discounts prescriptions ordered via mail order. So I mailed off my prescriptions a couple of weeks ago and waited. This morning, I decided to check where my evil psych drugz were at. Well, the Post Office was in the process of returning them to Caremark, because the address was incomplete. Even though my entire address, including unit number, was on the pre-printed form, the person who packaged the prescriptions left off the unit number. So my prescriptions are currently in Post Office Hell.

An hour later, and a phone call to Caremark and it boiled down to no, they couldn’t just send me another order of evil psych drugz. I would have to get another set of prescriptions and send them in to have them filled. And I would have to pay the $44 to FedEx these prescriptions overnight to San Antonio. Luckily my shrink had written a new set of prescriptions when I saw him less than two weeks ago, so this was doable. But I had to leave work early to get the order to FedEx before its shipping cutoff and then pay the $44.

Supposedly Caremark is going to call on Thursday to see how things are going, and I plan on asking them what corrective actions they plan on taking to ensure this sort of thing does not happen again. I mean, this is what I do at my day job. They should have some sort of checklist or dual custody if they can’t get an address right. *rolls eyes*

I’ve had that happen to me as well. My plan offers a massive discount to mail my RX’s to me. I tried it twice and the prescriptions never show up, both times they were lost in the mail. That’s why I get up at a very early hour on weekends and go to the main 24/7 pharmacy to get my refills…

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Limbaugh wind up on SiriusXM. After all, they gave Glenn Beck his own channel of 24/7 derp. And that’s where Dr. Laura also wound up…

Beck’s Blaze channel is internet only. Though his 3 hour show is on their conservative talk channel. I’m fairly certain that the talk channels on Sirius have commercials (I know ESPN does and since they also carry Hannity, I’m guessing the political ones do too), so Limbaugh is still going to have to generate advertising - and he apparently hasn’t been able to do that since slutgate.

I know of one Colorado’s “superdelegates,” the congressman from the eastern half of my county, Jared Polis (D-Boulder). He’s voting for Hillary at the convention. I don’t think he’s made his intentions public, but the guy is versed in politics. He’s a parent, an openly gay self-made millionaire from Boulder and he firmly caucuses with Democrats in congress. And I’ve *never* seen him tweet about Bernie, and the dude definitely tweets from time to time.

re: #101 teleskiguy

I’ve been researching the story behind Trump’s whining about the delegate process being “unfair,” and what I discovered is that when the behind the scenes horse trading on the delegates was being done, Trump did not have one volunteer on scene. Cruz not only had volunteers, he showed up in each district. Politico reported last week that Trump does not have a ground game, which places him at a disadvantage in the delegate accumulation process. He has claimed to be super smart many times, and if this is true, he should have read the rules relating to winning the nomination in each state instead of running off at the mouth by saying stupid stuff. I think he thought that as long as he had more people voting for him in each state than his opponents, he won all of the delegates. I find it fascinating that no one in his campaign even thought about building a ground game. Maybe this is what Lewandowsky should have been doing instead of behaving like a bullish mafia enforcer for Trump. I’ve noticed that since the Breitbart reporter sicced the cops on him, he’s been mighty quiet. Maybe he does know when to sit down and STFU.

How is it possible that the people of the great State of Colorado never got to vote in the Republican Primary? Great anger - totally unfair!

This is the same source of ignorance in both cases. If there is no Colorado primary, how is anyone going to vote in it? “The primary” is just something that exists—in their minds—as part of the national election process.

Except in the case of the Colorado GOP the vast majority of its members didn’t get any say whatsoever. It was far worse than even a traditional caucus in that the candidate preferences of those who showed up at the precinct level did not count towards the delegate allocation at all.

I don’t disagree. A third of registered voters couldn’t vote for their candidate for president (that’s right, Colorado voters are roughly divided into thirds, R’s, D’s and people like me who are like ‘fuck it, none!’)

The Republican Party in Colorado is just practicing tactics that their own party approves of without hesitation. Like their national counterpart, the Colorado GOP is following in their footsteps by being fascistic and undemocratic.

The stupidest part of the Colorado GOP’s decision to make precinct level caucuses pointless is that it deprived the State of a lot of campaign ad and event spending (television, radio, print & direct mail, venue rentals & event planning services.) I know all of that shit can be annoying but it does two things, it employs people and it helps keep the GOP brand alive in the eyes of the average voter. Instead for the most part all Colorado got during the early primary season was ads for Bernie and Hillary, rallies for Bernie and Hillary, and news coverage about Bernie and Hillary. Letting all that go by without a direct GOP Party rebuttal inside the State was strategically insane.

Colorado may be more reliably blue than it used to be but it is still technically a swing state and for the GOP leadership to just cede all Primary advertising to the Democrats made no sense whatsoever regardless of how much Trump terrifies them. Now they’re getting all kinds of press, almost all of it negative, while having pissed off and disenfranchised their own voting base. Good job guys.

So, last night my device decided to go on strike with a spinny wheel of death complete with a patronising-looking android telling me to ‘please, wait.’ (That implied pause really ticked me off).
I waited until this morning at five in the morning after being reminded of my predicament by a nice dream-lady who advised me to switch my SIM into an older phone.
This I did, because I was still being told to wait (‘please’).
Long story short, I read LGF today on an iPhone 4s. It seem to flaunt how puny it was with abandon. How I swinted at the Twitter imbeds! How I screamed inwardly at my inability to upding! What ordinarily would be a simple gesture of goodwill, joy, shared humour or commiseration, became charged with the impotent belligerence of a child (or Trump) denied his goodies.
So, I issued Protocol Hammerdown. Wiped everything. Reset the whole shebang. I scorched anything that endowed my device any semblance of my personality.
And it worked. And here I sit; reposed, content. Not even slightly concerned by my over-attachment to this blog and the denizens that dwell herein.

To be fair the execrable little queef-weasel sort of has a point, what happened in Colorado was about as undemocratic as things can get.

While I agree with almost everything you said (including the bit that I clipped) why would you possibly thing that tRump and his enforcer henchmen would act in a different manner than as “bullish mafia enforcer”s? That is what he knows and therefore what he expects his peon to act like. Him as president is a terrifying concept from a dictatorial POV.

The part where I think you are off, is the bit about him having the cajones to admit he may need to STFU. I think he is licking his wounds and getting up a head of steam to attack. Flesh that bruises as easily as his doesn’t heal easily. And, he has always worked from a position of power, this politiking is causing him to have to take a beating and he doesn’t like it and he will retaliate, soon.

The Brooklyn man who accidentally fired his handgun during a Waldorf-Astoria wedding says he’s being prosecuted only because of the still-furious bride.Shooter Vladimir Gotlibovsky says in a new Manhattan court filing that “machinations and maneuverings by those acting on behalf” of bride Anna Goldshmidt, his cousin, are the reason he’s facing criminal charges — even though he’s the one who cops say brought a loaded 9mm Ruger to her black-tie wedding

And who used the term “blamed?” Oh yeah…the writer at The Hill.

Her actual quote in response to being questioned:

“Well, look, it was Mayor de Blasio’s skit. He has addressed it, and I will really defer to him because it is something that he’s already talked about,” Clinton told Cosmopolitan in an interview published Tuesday when asked if she thought the joke was “inappropriate.”

And de Blasio has admitted it was his skit and he took responsibility for it. So, if it is the truth and she spoke to the truth, is it blaming?

This primary can’t be over fast enough. Everyone is blowing everything up far more than it need be. The supporters are out with microscopes and magnifying glasses looking for evidence of campaigns being unfair to their guy/gal.

And the media is helping it along by stirring everything up.

Our Immigration Minister made a quip to our then PM about the slowness of a community group assembly as being on ‘Cape York Time’ (an aside to what the ABC called ‘an apparent reference to the stereotypical view that people in remote and Indigenous communities …. take a fluid approach to punctuality.’)
It wasn’t, in our case, a staged skit but a very obvious insight into how conservative politicians view minorities.
Unless you’re poking fun at yourself having trouble at the turnstile, you shouldn’t attempt comedy of this sort. It’s just stupid.
That said, unless the throwaway remark that southern state votes don’t really count was actually in jest, I’m going to MBF this and hope to fuck they wise up.

This is the guy that has used every freaking trick in the book to screw over contractors, suppliers, architects, even communities and governments to get his way in his business dealings.

I’m having a hard time listening to him claim everything is so unfair. Face the facts Donald, you were so enamored with your polls and winning some primary states with 35% of the vote you never saw the actual facts and figures involved with running a campaign and how to work the delegates.

You hireed your henchmen to be campaign people and it has become obvious they didn’t know shit.

Now you are pissed. Get the fuck over it. You screwed up and it shows.

And you can’t tell me that had you known the tricks and plays that Cruz and the GOP are using against you, you wouldn’t have done them all yourself.

You’re just pissed you are getting beat at your own game. This time you got your big orange head involved in something you were too arrogant to look into. You thought you had this all in the bag and your were going to glide into the general election as the GOP candidate.

This is also why open primaries are such a stupid idea. In fact “open primary” is a contradiction in terms. If it’s open, it’s just a premature general election.

Exactly. No one’s forcing these stupid pastors who believe gay people are demonic to perform gay marriages and I doubt gay couples want them anyhow but they and according to the USSC have their marriages recognized under the law of the United States of America. And then there are these self fancied “Christian” bakers or florists. There’s no such thing as a Christian baker or florist but rather a baker or florist who happens to be Christian.

So the company I work for just got a new CEO 3 months ago - and as most of you already understand from your own experience that creates a trickle-down effect not unlike Reaganomics. A few people get great power and reward while downstream people wait, eyes closed, mouths open, with great anticipation for either a loving beak holding a worm or the claws of a raptor.

Well, we got a new CTO and the raptor swooped by after a few weeks and ate 1/3 of the developers in one chomp. The rest of us were told to hang tight and a new org chart would come within a few weeks. (makes you feel great, right?) Anticipating the worst, I threw my hat in for a position that I had been trying to help my boss fill recruitment-wise. It was more cross-team than my current role so I thought it’d be a good play. And I got it.

Well, today the org chart came out and it looks like I made a smart move. I’ll be reporting to a different person - a Director, and my boss retains the remainder of his team. I take on 5 people beneath me, however. This is great because I like leading teams and being a manager. But I suspect it won’t sit well with my now former boss.

Add to that the fact that I have a call for a Director level spot elsewhere today that would be financially quite stimulating, and it’s a pretty good hump day.

I take on 5 people beneath me, however. This is great because I like leading teams and being a manager. But I suspect it won’t sit well with my now former boss.

Add to that the fact that I have a call for a Director level spot elsewhere today that would be financially quite stimulating, and it’s a pretty good hump day.

Congrats! Made me think of this: dilbert.com

Wrong, Ted, this clearly falls under the “Pursuit of Happiness”. It certainly falls under the heading of something that does not at all infringe on anybody else’s rights if it is done in private.

But TC thinks that his (interpretation of the) Bible is the final arbiter of what is allowed and what is not.

I know that, like most of the threads here, the original topic was abandoned several hours and/or @ 100 posts ago. I just think there are two or three things worth noting.

The Republican Party, at the end of the day, is a private organization. They can do whatever they want. They can change the rules, because they make the rules. They can put a big notice on their website saying, “The first day of the convention in Cleveland, you need to wear a white shirt to get into the main hall.” When that morning rolls around, and everyone is standing outside, in white shirts, waiting to get in, they can grab a bullhorn and announce, “We’ve changed our mind! Everyone needs to go back to their hotel room and change into a red shirt; then, and only then, will we let you in.” It’s 100% legal for them to pull this, and any other shenanigans, they choose.

Some folks may not have packed a red shirt—so they won’t be coming back. They may choose to run out and buy one real quick, or they may decide it’s not worth it. If the RNC leadership pulls this kind of stunt enough times, people will just stop showing up.

The RNC helped put together a series of statewide primary elections and caucuses, encouraging people to participate. People were led to believe that their participation was desired, that their vote mattered in the selection process. If the votes are then circumvented, ignored… what will participation be like the next time?

Say what you will about Trump or “Drumpf” or whatever, but I have yet to receive a decent answer to this question… though I’ve been asking it for several weeks:

If Donald Trump is so bad, how was he able to beat 17, 18 other candidates in one primary contest after another? How, and why, is he still in the game, after Graham, Perry, Walker, Christie, Bush, Fiorina, Carson, Rubio, and others have long gone? Why have all these voters picked Donald Trump? Is it because they actually like Donald Trump, or more because they dislike all the other options?

Look, the point here is that if you insist on a literal interpretation of the Bible, you have to reject science, history and even logic, as the Bible contradicts itself in several places.

And these people insist on being allowed to pick and choose which aspects of science, history and logic they accept and which ones they reject.

If Hillary wins by 10 points, she gains 49 delegates over Bernie, 148 to 99. That outpaces her 538-dot-com-projected need by 26 delegates (and on the other side of the same coin, causes Bernie to fall short of his need by the same amount). It would be a crushing defeat.

Math, how does it work?!

Bernie has taken an anti-science position on GMOs. It would not surprise me if he came out as anti-math as well.

Helpful hint for the future: if you find yourself asking “if X, then is (synonym of X)?”, just go ahead and close your laptop and take a walk.

Men are more frightened of the fact that women bleed out of their whatevers than women are. It’s always a football player in high school who faints in the blood-typing class in biology, my teacher said.

My husband used to have a hunting meme t-shirt that stated, “Don’t trust anything that bleeds for 5 days and doesn’t die.”

I still think it’s funny.

My favorite bakery only has stuff go moldy when the wind is high and the spores are being blown in. The rest of the year it lasts for weeks.

re: #207 darthstar

Holy shit.

Well, we got a new CTO and the raptor swooped by after a few weeks and ate 1/3 of the developers in one chomp. The rest of us were told to hang tight and a new org chart would come within a few weeks. (makes you feel great, right?) Anticipating the worst, I threw my hat in for a position that I had been trying to help my boss fill recruitment-wise. It was more cross-team than my current role so I thought it’d be a good play. And I got it.

Well, today the org chart came out and it looks like I made a smart move. I’ll be reporting to a different person - a Director, and my boss retains the remainder of his team. I take on 5 people beneath me, however. This is great because I like leading teams and being a manager. But I suspect it won’t sit well with my now former boss.

Congrats!

re: #301 Wendell Zurkowitz (slave to the waffle light)

I do not understand this obsession with orifices and what goes into and comes out of them. It is as if society were stuck at some totally infantile or pubescent level.

As if? No, they are.

Keep ‘em stupid about everything and you can get them to believe anything.

I remember back around 8th grade in Catholic school, age 13. The big questions were being asked. We were told to buy this little booklet that would explain everything about those questions in a frank, but still Catholic way.

It was a waste of $2. I had older brothers and friends that told me 100 times more than in that damn booklet.

I did learn though, that sometime a girl will feel good while out riding a horse and it was perfectly natural. And sometimes boys awake with a certain swelling, but it was all part of God’s plan. Yeah, thanks for that info.
