In an interview with NBC's Meet the Press yesterday, new Donald Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort claimed Ted Cruz was using "Gestapo tactics" at various state GOP Conventions including Colorado where Cruz swept Trump over the weekend.
Somehow I doubt Cruz hired an army of blond men to rouse Republicans out of their sleep and tell them to vote for Cruz or never see their families again. Invoking the Nazis is utterly pathetic, but pathetic is what I have come to expect of the Trump campaign.
Manafort also claimed that Cruz "wasn't playing by the rules." No, Cruz is absolutely playing by the rules. If the Trump campaign had actually bothered to study delegate selection procedure at the state GOP level instead of threatening riots at the RNC, they wouldn't find themselves in this situation. A situation of their own making.
