Remember that one time Republican Party leaders completely flipped out when Donald Trump suggested he would run as an independent if he felt like they treated him unfairly? And then they made him sign a pledge and everyone calmed the heck down? (Trump’s a lot of things, but I think he’s smart enough to know that a third-party run would ruin us in the general.)
Apparently, Republican Party leaders made him sign the pledge, thinking he wouldn’t be the nominee. But since he hasn’t imploded and could very well end up being our guy (especially after the results last night), they’re scrambling. “Ah! What do we do? More negative commercials? Um–brokered convention! Oh no- how about a third-party run??!!?”
