The Never-Trump forces are desperately seeking (roughly 3 p.m. Eastern) a floor vote on the delegate-binding rule, yet Trump's party bosses have secreted the convention's secretary — to whom a floor-vote petition must be hand-delivered — in a Cheneyesque undisclosed location.
In short, an elitist dirty trick typically worthy of only GOP-establishment politicians is attempting (successfully) to crush the virtuous voice of The Republican People, most of whom never voted for Trump.
So, my dear Trumpeteers, how do you like your "populist" leader so far? He's not even nominated yet, and he's already "rigging" the system to his, and only his, advantage. Your "anti-elitist" is already atop the new establishment's heap, which looks and smells very much like the old one.
From the convention floor, former U.S. senator Gordon Humphrey described the elitist Trump forces to MSNBC as "brownshirts" and "fascists." And former Virginia state attorney general Ken Cuccinelli protested that Trump's party of "law and order" is ignoring its own laws, which, he added, is "appalling." It seems that "They the People" are exceptionally disgruntled with the new, elitist, establishmentarian order.
Thank you, God.
