The Trump campaign released a hilarious statement Wednesday morning, in response to his 13-point loss to Ted Cruz in the Wisconsin primary: “Donald J. Trump withstood the onslaught of the establishment yet again.”
That is, of course, the sort of statement one might expect from a winner — and indeed, this statement contains no actual acknowledgment that he lost.
“Lyin’ Ted Cruz had the Governor of Wisconsin, many conservative talk radio show hosts, and the entire party apparatus behind him,” it continues. “Not only was he propelled by the anti-Trump Super PAC’s spending countless millions of dollars on false advertising against Mr. Trump, but he was coordinating `with his own Super PAC’s (which is illegal) who totally control him. Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet— he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump.
“We have total confidence that Mr. Trump will go on to win in New York, where he holds a substantial lead in all the polls, and beyond. Mr. Trump is the only candidate who can secure the delegates needed to win the Republican nomination and ultimately defeat Hillary Clinton, or whomever is the Democratic nominee, in order to Make America Great Again.”
