Last night at the CNN Family Town Hall Donald Trump complained that he was being treated unfairly by the GOP and that somehow the party was responsible for the unlikely prospect of his campaign getting to 1237 delegates. “I know the rules very well, but I know it’s stacked against me by the establishment,” Trump told the crowd.
Reince Priebus, the chairman of the RNC, called out Trump on twitter for his incessant whining about the fairness of “the rules” that have been in place for years:
It has become glaringly obvious over the past couple of weeks that Donald Trump is not a politician. The disorganization of his campaign came into focus last week when sloppy politicking and bad information cost him all the delegates in Colorado, where the Ted Cruz campaign’s manuvering and political connections secured the entire lot. Ted Cruz is just much better than Trump at organizing on the ground level, talking to the delegates and making sure that everyone is informed.
Trump is a sore loser, making numerous statements like “The Republican National Committee, they should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to kind of crap to happen. The rules are no good when they don’t count your vote … like in Colorado.” But as it turns out, Trump has actually benefited from the delegate system, as he has received 45% of the delegates awarded while only receiving 37% of the popular vote.
