Along with Donald Trump’s narcissism is a HUGE persecution complex. This complex extends to the Republican Party, despite his pledge to stand with them. Now, he is warning them if they keep being “unfair,” to him, he’ll make the case for a third party run, thus splitting the party and handing the 2016 election to the Democrats.
“I signed a pledge but it’s a double-edge pledge, and as far as I’m concerned they’re in default of the pledge,” Trump said.
While rallying his supporters in South Carolina on Saturday, Trump warned that “lobbyists and donors” were controlling his fellow GOP presidential candidates, and that much of the audience was against him due to “special interests.”
Those tickets were all special interest people. I know ’em.”
The Republican National Committee responded to Trump’s threats and accusations of their breaching the pledge, declaring that the “language of the pledge is pretty straightforward.”
They maintain that the pledge in question “simply states the candidates pledge to run as a Republican and support the nominee. Nothing more and nothing less,” adding that Trump’s threats and accusations are nonsense, even going so far as to say that the candidates themselves controlled the debate audience.
“Each candidate received 100 tickets which is the largest amount so far. The candidates as a whole were the largest group of ticket holders,” the RNC said in a statement.
Trump doubled down, saying that he recognized people in the audience, and that they were mocking him:
“He’s going ‘boo, boo!’ And he’s waving at me. They’re booing me because they’re having fun!”
“I’m saying this is crazy! But I know many of these people. That was a wealthy room.”
Grab your popcorn, folks.
