Dump Trump Movement Planning for Convention Floor Fight

JUN 26 2016, 11:16 PM ET
by ALEXANDRA JAFFE

The grassroots movement aimed at ousting Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention is planning for a convention floor fight, hiring staff, establishing a command center in Cleveland and rolling out ads in key states over the next week.

Organizers of the effort held their second weekly conference call Sunday night.

Former Bogota, New Jersey, Mayor Steve Lonegan, a Ted Cruz supporter and spokesman for a super PAC backing the effort, said he plans to hire East, West and Central regional field directors to begin building a "comprehensive list of every single delegate" to get to know their interests and issues.

1. "Grass roots movements" don't have backing from SuperPAC's

Just saying.

2. I am afraid that the fight won't be metaphorical.

Some of their worst will be in attendance, all puffed up with entitlement and rage. How the hell do they avoid gunplay, or even brawling?

3. I'm sure guns will be banned at the republican convention just like they are banned at NRA functions

 

They aren't stupid, just evil!

4. It may not matter how smart or evil anyone is.

Even if they manage to stop 100% of the guns before they reach the convention floor, the hotels and surrounding businesses won't be as secure. And brawls could happen anywhere at any time, given the heights of rheyorical insanity this year.

I wouldn't wish these things on the GOP, much less any bystanders or media observers.
