"Attempts to unbind GOP delegates crushed, effectively ending ‘Never Trump’ movement."

"Paul Manafort, the chairman of the Trump campaign, heralded the win, tweeting that an insurrection was 'crushed.'"

Clinton would've probably lost to any other Republican candidate. This is a gift to Democrats.

Real Republican Chuck hardest hit.

Good illustration of the problem. The establishment Republicans are the gang who can't shot straight. All talk and promises but don't have the ability to do anything done.

Maybe the Republicans can take a page from the Turkish military.

Forget it. They don't have the balls to do anything.

Excellent...The nevertrumpersforhillary were a pain. Can we get rid of Krystol now?

Clinton would win By Any Mean Necessary no matter the opponent.

If Trump were replaced, we would hear endlessly, "This is worse than Trump!"

Or a version of that, "And you thought Trump was Hitler?!"

Remember how terrible Palin was? I've already been told today that Pence is worse. Seriously.

I must be imagining things. I'd swear this post was by Ann Although a few moments ago.

Good grief, Pence is nothing like Palin. He seems very intelligent.

All hail King Donald!

The NeverTrumps never had a leader who offered himself as the replacement. It really is that simple.

I see shiloh has awakened.

I think it's fine for conservative columnists and talking heads to argue that Tromp is just unacceptable. When Tromp loses, they want to be able to have some credibility in arguing that the Republican Party needs to rebuild on a foundation of conservative principles. In that sense, #NeverTromp is fine.

But the idea that the party should change its rules at this point to boot the clear winner of the nomination process is crazy. Do that, and the Republican Party is dead.

Bring back the Whigs?

Joe said...

Off with their heads!

Seriously, a bunch of GOP dicks tries a blatantly coup in support of non-democracy, loses and walk away. The GOP should toss them from the party.

(I already emailed Mike Lee and asked if he believes in democracy. He hasn't replied.)

How can you end the #NeverTrump movement? It's not like these people have to vote for Trump now.

All the NeverTrump people can just vote libertarian.

Declaring #NeverTrump "dead" is about as effective as declaring ISIS to be a "JV team."

And every bit as stupid.

They should be working on convincing the NT's to come back into the fold and defeat Hillary, every goddamned day until election day.

Good riddance to #NeverTrump - those folks were lost

#NeverTrump was always #alwayshillary. But any excuse is gone now. You either support Trump or you support Hillary. It is eplicitly clear now.

If the Never Trump jerks had said 'Not Trump' or 'Someone Else Please', then persuasion would be in order. They didn't -- they used 'never'. They need to stick to their declaration; otherwise, they're hypocrites. Screw those crybullies -- they have nothing.
