A Whining Whiner Who Whines: Will Donald Trump Be Able to Whine His Way to Victory?

“I do whine because I want to win, and I’m not happy about not winning, and I am a whiner. And I keep whining and whining until I win.” ~ Donald Trump to CNN, 8/11/15

Donald Trump is whining rather than winning again and it should come as no surprise as Ted Cruz continues to win the recent delegate battle and close the margin of Trump’s current lead.

But before Trump cult members accuse us of beating up on the bloviating billionaire and reality game show actor for calling his complaints as “whining,” keep in mind that is precisely what he called the tactic during an interview with CNN in August of last year. Above and beyond that, Trumpaloompas, Trump himself admitted that he is a “whiner,” so I am simply reminding you of Trump’s own words (I get it, that is often extremely painful. But remember — “he started it!”).

In fact, Trump explained one of his lifelong tactics of getting what he wants. Like a screaming three-year-old in the grocery store who realized that if he screams enough, mommy and daddy will give him what he wants just go get him to shut up (My dad used to call this “greasy wheel gets the grease.”)

Granted, Trump does have some things to cry about, like getting obliterated in the delegate count by Ted Cruz who is outworking, outsmarting, and out-organizing the New York liberal masquerading as a newly born again rock-ribbed conservative (one of the greatest con jobs in the history of the United States — probably only second to the global warming scam).

As RedState reports, since Trump won the Arizona primary, while he was busy hate-tweeting, Ted Cruz has been quickly gaining ground.

  • Cruz won Utah with 69% of the vote, sweeping all of Utah’s 40 delegates.
  • Cruz won delegates out of Louisiana that were available.
  • Cruz then won the North Dakota delegate race, taking 18 out of 25 delegates. Trump got only 1 publicly supporting delegate.
  • Cruz won in Wisconsin, getting close to 50% of the vote and winning 36 out of the 42 delegates by winning most Congressional districts, with just 6 delegates for Trump.
  • Cruz won the Colorado delegate selection process, winning all of the delegate races, either with Cruz bound delegates or Cruz-supporting unbound delegates, a total of 34 delegates.
  • Cruz has been winning the ‘other’ nomination race, the race for actual delegates, even when bound to Trump in places like Georgia, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and many other states. For example, this weekend in Iowa, a CD is sending #CruzCrew delegates to Iowa.

While nobody likes a crybaby and Trump is already seen unfavorably by a whopping 70 percent of Americans (Wait, he promised to unite — maybe he’s really doing it — against him!) — an unprecedented number — the real estate tycoon went on another infamous Trumpertantrum to express his displeasure of being treated unfavorably, i.e., having to play by longstanding rules and seeing his strong arm bully tactics backfire.

Amazingly, Trump continued to cry, even smearing Ted Cruz for somehow giving away unsubstantiated “all sorts of goodies” to delegates to win them over. Trump didn’t say what the “goodies” were, but I’m assuming he means a restoration of the U.S. Consitution as a “goody.”

As you can see, The Drudge Report, which sadly has become a propaganda site for the New York liberal’s ego-driven campaign, quickly jumped on board, carrying the water for Trump’s latest whine, calling Cruz’s no-hitter pitched against Trump at the Colorado GOP Convention a “voterless victory.” Drudge fails to mention that Trump, who is beginning to look more and more like the “low energy” candidate in the race, didn’t even bother to show up to the event.

Who would have thought that we’d ever see the day that Trump, the man who has claimed that he does nothing but win and is the best deal maker there is, would publicly whine because he’s been out-maneuvered as a deal maker and out organized by Ted Cruz. Sad.
