After Ted Cruz swept 34 out of 34 delegates at the Colorado GOP convention over the weekend, an event in which Donald Trump chose to skip for whatever reason, the bloviating billionaire has been on another one of his epic Trumpertantrums, whining that he’s somehow being treated unfairly because he’s being outsmarted, outworked and out-organized by the Cruz campaign in the all-important battle for GOP delegates.
Ted Cruz mocked the bloviating billionaire and reality game show host for complaining about the results in Colorado, the ridiculous claims by Trump that the nomination was somehow being stolen from him.
“Donald has been yelling and screaming — a lot of whining — I’m sure some cursing, and some late-night fevered tweeting — all the characteristics I would note we would want in a commander-in-chief,” Cruz joked tongue-in-cheek while at a campaign rally in Irvine, California.
The people of Colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians. Biggest story in politics. This will not be allowed!

I win a state in votes and then get non-representative delegates because they are offered all sorts of goodies by Cruz campaign. Bad system!

“And the latest thing he’s seized upon is when people vote against him, ‘They’re stealing the election!’ It’s a really odd notion. What is this democracy of which you speak?” Cruz asked.
Cruz picked up 21 delegates who were picked at congressional district conventions, along with 13 that were selected at the end of a day-long convention in Colorado.
“You all have been a part of something incredible that has happened over the last three weeks,” Cruz told a reported 5,000 grassroots party activists on Saturday at the convention.
Trump explained his tactic of whining on CNN in August of last year:
“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
Ted Cruz has a superior ground game and all the whining in the world by Trump isn’t going to change this obvious fact. Maybe Trump should take a break from Twitter and start learning how the nomination process works.
