TRUMP CRUSHES CRUZ IN INDIANA---PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEE
For the first time in American history, a New York businessman-turned politician has defeated sixteen other competitors to become the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party. In a stunning and unprecedented fashion Donald Trump took his final competitor to the woodshed last night with a convincing victory in Indiana, defeating Senator Ted Cruz 53.3% to 36.6%. The results led Cruz to suspend his campaign, saying, "our path has been foreclosed".
In his victory speech, Trump was quick to pay Cruz a hardy compliment, saying “Ted Cruz — I don’t know if he likes me or he doesn’t like me — but he is one hell of a competitor, He is a tough, smart guy--and he has got an amazing future. He's got an amazing future, so I want to congratulate Ted." Shortly after, the real estate mogul turned his attention directly to Hillary Clinton, (who had actually lost the night to Bernie Sanders in an almost expected upset), saying it was time for the Party to unite in a common cause to defeat Hillary.
Welcoming the news of Trump's victory, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus tweeted out: .@realDonaldTrump will be presumtive @GOP nominee, we all need to unite and focus on defeating @HillaryClinton #NeverClinton
(On a short sidenote, and for the record, it was only six minutes after Trump's historic victory was declared on the cable nets before every one of them, (in an almost collaborative effort), began their vile and disgusting anti-Trump screeds. This writer will not dignify their remarks [in this post] with ANY of their infantile and indignant indiscretions or tactless gaucheries. The desecration of what used to be called "journalism" can be self-identified by their own treacherous and cantankerous undertakings without my help.)
With Cruz's departure, Trump can now concentrate on finishing up his conquest of collecting the required 1,237 delegates, (silencing the political pundits' "he can't get there", or the perpetual conversation of a contested convention once and for all), and then focus his complete attention on the "presumptive Democratic nominee", Mrs. "I hate the coal industry" Clinton.
Later today, I'll put up a list of the folks who have either been put on suicide watch, (sarcastically speaking), or have begun developing their "travel plans" outside of the U.S. boundaries. Frankly, a mass exodus of anti-American progressive liberals, (who've been infecting this Nation for several decades), will be a welcomed sight.
Update: For the record, Cruz's VP candidate, Carly Fiorina had literally dropped out of the race in a slightly less than dignified fashion.
