Eric Erickson showed up on Meet the Press with Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell Sunday. He said that if Trump wins, there will be a third party or a Constitution party.
So much for making Trump swear he wouldn’t run as a third party candidate.
CHUCK TODD: “Well I agree but substance hadn’t worked. But let me ask you this, you alluded to it during the break. The ultimate like suicide mission to stop Donald Trump is to run a third party Republican. you’ve mentioned, you half-joked Rick Perry for president. Do you think there will be a third party a Constitution party say that is a legitimate Republican, a conservative?”
ERIC ERICKSON: “There absolutely will be, there are too many conservatives who would sit it out if it was Donald Trump and—“
ANDREA MITCHELL: “Doesn’t that elect Hillary Clinton?”
ERIC ERICKSON: “It could but I think that ultimately that Donald Trump supporters need to understand that Hillary Clinton will be elected if they choose to go down this path and Republicans have an obligation to to make it clear in the primary that it will be Hillary Clinton if they don’t change.”
Hugh Hewitt who has a conservative radio talk show, suggested much the same thing.
He said, “…we are on the verge of a tipping point in the Republican Party where it could actually split for the first time. I’ve got a note this morning from Meg Whitman who is the finance co-chair for Chris Christie denouncing Chris Christie for political opportunism. And that’s kind of a shattering thing when your finance co-chair takes a roundhouse at you. So, we are at the verge of a real meltdown in the Republican Party. It might happen Tuesday.”
If the GOP betrays Trump, it releases him from his pledge to not run as a third party candidate.
Trump said Sunday that the GOP isn’t treating him fairly and it’s a two-way street.
This is one divided Republican party. We have the perfect situation to beat the socialists but do we have the candidate?
People on both sides of the fence say they’ll stay home if Trump is the candidate.
One of the gals on The View Raven-Symone said she’ll move to Canada if a Republican is nominated. She obviously doesn’t know the difference between nominated and elected. She’s a dope. Then Sharpton said he’d leave if Trump wins is elected and Hannity said he’ll buy his plane ticket to anywhere in the world.
Rosie O’Donnell, Eddie Griffin, Cher, Samuel L. Jackson, Barry Diller, Katie Hopkins and Omari Hardwick also promised to leave the country. If that isn’t an endorsement for Trump, I don’t know what is.
Trump with all his flaws is better than McConnell and the rest of the establishment to half of the GOP voters. The message the GOP didn’t get was that they either had to change or the party will divide. Looks like it will divide.
