Famous last words…. the “NeverTrump” people are running out of options!
The “NeverTrump” diehards went from naïve denial, to brainstorming about all the ways they could stop Trump, some spending millions of dollars on tens of thousands of negative ads, to finally being left in stubborn shell-shock as he suddenly become the last man standing and has been recognized as the presumptive GOP nominee.
Listen to what they said in the beginning of the race – famous last words of supposed leaders who no longer have a clue how angry the American people are over their lack of lack of conservative leadership. It is not Donald Trump who has created division in the GOP.
Some have declared they just won’t vote at all – and some have even said they’ll vote for Hillary instead. All this after they INSISTED that Donald Trump sign a PLEDGE in the beginning of the campaign, along with the rest of them, where each one VOWED to support the eventual nominee.
JEB BUSH: “I will not vote for Donald Trump, nor Hillary Clinton.”
LINDSEY GRAHAM: Said he will not vote for Trump, or Clinton, and will not attend the GOP convention. Trump said Graham is “beyond rehabilitation.”
MITT ROMNEY: Mitt won’t support either Trump nor Clinton – but he did meet privately with a “NeverTrump” leader on Thursday to discuss the possibilities of a 3-party run.
PAUL RYAN: “I’m just not ready yet to support Donald Trump.”
MARK LEVIN: “I am not voting for Donald Trump. Count me as NeverTrump!”
GLENN BECK: “No real Christian should support Trump.”
MARK SALTER: “I’ll vote for Clinton over Trump.”

NIKKI HALEY: “I respect the will of the people,” will support Trump if he is the nominee, but no thanks to VP position. Trump said, “I never considered her for VP position.”
Howard Kurtz of FOX News said: “The diehards are willing to accept another four years out of power as a reasonable price to pay for blocking Trump. The truth is—and this is hard for his detractors to accept—he is remaking the party in his own image. Trump is not a doctrinaire conservative, and for the moment, he is the face of the GOP.”
