"Donald Trump made his case to California’s Republican establishment . . . He rarely speaks to Republican establishment groups, and he rails against what he calls a rigged party system . . . "they’re going to be voting for me” — and not the party - article

The disgusting bigot cons the GOP/Tea bigots in California.

The would be Dictator tells the Republicans it's either him or rioting and slaughter from his racist band of malcontents.

Who will the bigots shoot first at Cleveland?

Police Officers, Firemen or Priests?

Trump demands the GOP/Tea cower before him or face slaughter at the Convention.

So ends the bigot's claim on Democratic process. Guns or Trump.

996+172=1168 It seems the protesters ensured Trump will capture enough delegates.

Trump joked that as he crawled under a fence to get in, he “felt like I was crossing the border.”

Exactly. That's how bad it is in CA. These protesters are the worse, even having the nerve wave Mexico's flags. It's bad enough they damaged a marked police vehicle, paid for with CA tax dollars, something those illegals would know nothing about.

Keep it classy Hilary supporters.

Seriously, you're off your rocker. Rioting from Trump supporters? Last time I checked, Trump supporters weren't showing up to Bernie/Hillary rallies and trying to get them shut down. These anti-Trump people are literally acting like the Nazi brown-shirts whose purpose was to disrupt rival political group meetings. While Trump gets called a fascist, it's the leftist protestors who are actually acting the role:

"Demonstrators swarmed outside the hotel near San Francisco airport, forcing Trump to crawl under a fence to enter the hotel where he met with local GOP power brokers and gave a lunchtime speech at the state party’s convention" - article

Obviously a staged event.

The GOP power brokers of California have never met anyone at the airport hotel in the article. The billionaires decided making Trump a custom fit conflict would help the bigots prove a case.

Instead, the whole show was a designed freakshow featuring Trump as King Kong and the California power brokers as Fay Wray. You know, Hollywood.

The billionaires club has secure landing pads and fortress estates, why meet Donald J. Trump at the airport? Donald has a very nice chopper, (remember Iowa?) and doesn't do anything unless it serves his plan to put Bigots First.

The idea that Police were "unavailable" to guide Trump to his meeting is laughable.

Somehow the Secret Service let Trump "crawl under a fence"? Total packaging of the corrupt GOP/Tea and their Bigot in Chief to spur hatred for Mexican Americans who fought and died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Disgusting.

They should try protesting in Mexico while waving the flag of the United States and see what happens.

2 ( +7 / -5 )

questions persist in the party — nationally and in California — about Trump’s electability

There is no question about Donald J. Trump's "electability".

Who will the bigots shoot first at Cleveland? Since the Convention is an open carry, firearms on the hip, event, the question remains serious. Either in the Convention Center or in the streets, Trump's Thumpers want blood and Trump has proved he supports violence at his loyalty rallies.

The GOP/Tea finally has a hero to replace Reagan in California.

The GOP/Tea's hypocrisy is a clear today as when the Bush campaign robot-called thousands falsely attacking Senator John McCain for fathering a black child.

(NOTE: Senator John McCain, a five year POW, refused release from his captors multiple times until his comrades in arms were released with him. Trump disparaged McCain's heroism and sacrifice taunting; Trump didn't recognize POWs as heroes. Trump posed POWs were losers not worth Trump's admiration while Trump ran from service in Vietnam.)

GOP/Tea power brokers? Trump makes the GOP/Tea his bit*h.

Bingo. (They'd be shot.)

Total packaging of the corrupt GOP/Tea and their Bigot in Chief to spur hatred for Mexican Americans who fought and died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Disgusting.

It's not disgusting. The mex-american servicemen and women enlisted into the armed forces on their own. The mex-americans who've proudly served the US is one thing, but the "illegals" protesting Trump in CA have really got some nerve.

. . . worse than that whole, "si se puede" movement. You see! We give them an inch & they take 2 yards.

I hate Orange County Republicans.

Why? Because they have beautiful houses, nice cars and good careers? Or that they "might" vote 4 Trump? Haters gona hate.

When Trump earlier this month said transgender people should be able to use whichever bathroom they choose, Cruz’s campaign released a statement saying Trump was “no different from politically correct leftist elites.”

There should be no violence in protests. It undercuts your message and creates collateral damage for others who might support your policy positions but cannot support your tactics. It's counterproductive.

Another application for Editor in Chief at Japan Today. Somehow the racists in the Tea Party think they know more than the (Copyright 2016) The Associated Press.

How stupid do Trump supporters think the world is?

Stupid enough to not know Trump's fantasy journey to California was a put up to stage another photo op for their Bigot in Chief?

The best part of being a Tea Party bigot is they have an ironclad reason to ignore the facts.

The facts don't support their obvious racism.

The international reader wonders 'what is the Tea thing'?

Quick, google Dick Armey and Tea Party and Racist reveals all.

Trump loves the dummies, they buy his Chinese made junk and lick Trump's iron boot.

Very GOP/Tea of Mr. Trump. He's clearly trying to bind the Party together through threats of riot and slaughter at Cleveland, Ohio when his racists open fire on innocent and partiotic Americans to insure Trump is carried to the White House on rivers of blood.

Methinks you hard-core Republicans are sounding ever more desperate by the hour. Lawyers defend people. If you really want to make your case you're going to have to back it up a little more.

Look on the positive side. When Hillary wins in an electoral landslide against your man Trump, taking the Senate and possibly even the House, you'll have at the very least 4 whole years to further smear Mrs Clinton with spurious allegations.

Don't think she'll waste the first 2 years trying to reach out to the insane Party like an initially naive President Obama did. The Republican party is about to be decimated.

A thing of beauty it is....

"least 4 whole years to further smear Mrs Clinton with spurious allegations." Yes, that's why Clinton should be elected and Republicans should help put her in the WH.

You're obviously the ignorant one. "What difference does it make" an illegal mexican assaulting a Trump supporter or a mexican-american -they're both on the same page.

They just want to commit crimes on lawfully gathered Trump supporters.

What if Trump supporters assaulted illegals out in the open, on national TV? Huh? You wouldn't hear the end of it.

But yet, you defend thugs. Smashing cop cars . . . . good riddance.

Looks like the Trump supports got their asses kicked by a bunch of illegal, transgender liberals.

No they didn't. Protesting with violence and smashing up cop cars on national TV is stupid. What a zoo like Ferguson? Classy.

The voter has had enough of Trump. While some few in the GOP/Tea may massage numbers and talk about 'Making America Hate' the real wreckage is on the GOP/Tea as a whole.
