Get ready for the blame game.
It's going to get worse.
As his unlikely campaign to become president unravels in a painfully predictable fashion, Donald Trump moved Monday to set up the excuses for his loss. In tweets directed at Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, the GOP nominee accused Ryan seeking to undercut Trump's campaign. And in a broader indictment Trump, a longtime Democrat who rose to prominence criticizing Republican leaders, tweeted that Republicans are not sufficiently loyal to their leaders.
"Paul Ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration and not waste his time on fighting Republican nominee," Trump wrote Monday.
On Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted: "Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (every poll), it is hard to do well when Paul Ryan and others give zero support!"
And then, a couple hours later, he continued: "Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty."
Then: "It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to."
And: "With the exception of cheating Bernie out of the nom the Dems have always proven to be far more loyal to each other than the Republicans!"
Naturally, Trump's tweets included errors, exaggerations and outright falsehoods. Ryan is not "fighting Republican nominee," a fact that has frustrated some of Ryan's most loyal supporters. Trump did not win the second debate "in a landslide" and, of course, not "every poll" found that he'd won.Read the rest from Steve Hayes HERE.
