‘You allowed this abomination’: Even Twitter conservatives rip GOP for post-primary spin
The Republican National Committee attempted to strike a conciliatory note on Thursday in the wake of Donald Trump’s apparent securing of their presidential nomination, only to get roasted online.
But the criticism did not just come from liberals seizing the opportunity for some schadenfreude; the negative reaction included anger from some conservative users, as seen below.
Thank you to the entire Republican field for a hard fought race. The Party is better for your efforts.

@GOP WTF are you smoking? The "party" is over. You allowed this abomination. You FAILED. 30 years I've been GOP, not anymore.
