Donald Trump and his 'fairness' whine

Leon Wolf:
Donald Trump is one of the whiniest people on the face of the earth. Seriously, most toddler have better control over their urge to petulantly declare everything that goes against them to be “unfair” than Donald Trump does.

The latest unfair thing that is ruining Donald Trump’s good time is the concept of “majority rules.” Specifically, the GOP rule, set out long before Donald Trump even announced that he was going to run requiring the nominee to get 1,237 delegates (or, a majority) on the first ballot, or face a contested convention. According to Trump, this is “unfair”....

Of course, no one has taken advantage of the crowded field more than Trump has. If anyone should be complaining about the “unfairness” of the process, it should be the other candidates in the field, including those who have dropped out. Trump has been the beneficiary of a set of GOP rules that were specifically designed to ensure an easy path to the nomination for the early frontrunner (who, it was assumed, would likely be Jeb Bush).

Thus, although Trump has only received 37% of the popular vote cast thus far, he has received 47% of the delegates allocated. That, to me, seems “unfair,” but you don’t hear Ted Cruz whining into his Juicy Juice straw about it. If Donald Trump can’t get 50% of the delegates in spite of the fact that the system has been rigged to favor candidates who win a bare plurality, then he really ought to do some serious soul searching about how he could have run like a front runner instead of insulting his way into a solid 35% share of the Republican vote.

The RNC isn’t to blame for the fact that 60% of the party stubbornly refuses to vote for Donald Trump: Donald Trump is.
...
And, a significant number of that 60 percent will not vote for him if he gets the nomination.   That is what happens when you when by alienating the rest of the party.

The fact is that if he gets the nomination and goes up against Hillary Clinton it will be the most unfair choice ever forced on the electorate.  They are both awful.
