Trump tells Republicans they have to eat his crap sandwich

The Hill:
Donald Trump said Thursday that Republicans wary of his campaign have little choice but to vote for him anyway.

"If you really like Donald Trump, that's great, but if you don't, you have to vote for me anyway. You know why? Supreme Court judges, Supreme Court judges," Trump said at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

"Have no choice, sorry, sorry, sorry. You have no choice," Trump continued, calling the late Justice Antonin Scalia a "great guy" and acknowledging tied decisions at the Supreme Court after his death.

Trump said the next president "will probably have three, could be four, could even be five" appointments to make to the Supreme Court, alluding to the ages of senior justices.

Trump dismissed critics who speculate he may appoint liberal judges and said if Hillary Clinton appoints judges: "You're going to end up with another Venezuela. You're going to be Venezuela."

No one in the US has to vote for anyone.  Candidates who are 360-degree jerks have no right to your vote just because their opponent is also a terrible candidate.  If he really wanted those Republican votes he could have conducted his campaign in a fashion that did not alienate a significant portion of the GOP electorate.  He could have told his more rabid followers to treat those who opposed him with respect.

BTW, the term 360-degree jerk means that he looks and acts like a jerk from any angle you look at him.

At some point, Trump is going to need to earn those Republican votes and not try to extort them into supporting him because of the Court.
