If you didn’t think this buffoon was a stalking horse for Granny Clinton, maybe this will bring you to your senses. Let’s face it, he knows he has no shot at winning the GOP nomination, despite his alleged strong showing in recent polls. Both he and Grandma have the highest unfavorables in key swing states, so why not split off some Republican votes and assure we’re left with yet another corrupt Democrat regime?
Donald Trump says the chances that he will launch a third-party White House run will “absolutely” increase if the Republican National Committee is unfair to him during the 2016 primary season.
“The RNC has not been supportive. They were always supportive when I was a contributor. I was their fair-haired boy,” the business mogul told The Hill in a 40-minute interview from his Manhattan office at Trump Tower on Wednesday. “The RNC has been, I think, very foolish.”
Aw, the poor baby. He’s going to take his ball and go home. Perhaps the GOP isn’t embracing him becaause he’s a complete blowhard, a buffoon and a raging asshole?
Pressed on whether he would run as a third-party candidate if he fails to clinch the GOP nomination, Trump said that “so many people want me to, if I don’t win.”
Well, is “so many” people want you to do it, then just man up and declare yourself an independent and be done with it. Besides, as a Clinton donor you’re not exactly endearing yourself to the Republican rank and file.
“I’ll have to see how I’m being treated by the Republicans,” Trump said. “Absolutely, if they’re not fair, that would be a factor.”
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus called Trump earlier this month asking him to tone down his controversial rhetoric. More recently, the RNC rebuked him for saying that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is not a war hero. Trump didn’t apologize but has since said that the 2008 Republican presidential nominee is a war hero.
He may even wind up in the initial GOP debate, where he’ll wind up imploding. He has no shot at winning the nomination, but his ego is so massive he won’t be able to handle the rejection, so like any bully he’ll want to create problems for the people who reject him. Assuming he’s in the upcoming debates, the first question for him should be whether he’ll support the eventual nominee or run third party. He’ll be toast after that, if not before then.
