Kasich and Cruz Transgender Bathroom Stalling Tactics


By Judi McLeod

The Election 2016 primaries,  off the rails for months, have meandered off straight into the girls’ bathroom.

Career politicians of the day have joined the transgenders in being where they shouldn’t be.  As someone just quipped after reading this line: “Oh how I wish we were back in the good ole’ days when politicians were only in the gutter slinging mud!”

Senator Ted Cruz has whipped Clown Kasich out of the rabbit’s hat in an act to ‘jumpsuit’ Republican front-runner Donald J. Trump, who, they want voters to know, cannot beat Hillary Clinton for the presidency.

Unfortunately for all those who don’t see the election of the 45th President of the U.S. as a one up-man-ship bathroom game, they’ve just handed Hillary a jumpstart to victory.

“If Trump dresses up as Clinton, he still can’t go to the girls’ bathroom,” Cruz quipped at a Sunday night event.

How downright statesman like, Senator Cruz.

“Trump said Thursday that North Carolina is “paying a big price” for the law, which supporters of LGBT rights, see as discriminatory toward transgender people. (The Hill, April 21, 2016)

“Trump said transgender people should use whatever bathroom they want.”

They already do, Mr. Trump, because they know down at heart that pandering Democrats running the White House cannot legislate on transgender bathroom rights.

Making themselves a combined source to take down Trump, Cruz and Kasich went into the corner of the transgender bathroom this weekend to work out a strategy they are convinced is too big to fail.

“Strategically it makes perfect sense,” posits columnist Dan Calabrese. “Neither Cruz nor Kasich can get to 1,237 via the primaries and caucuses, but if they can make sure Trump falls short too, then anyone could conceivably become the nominee in a contested convention. I’m a little surprised they’re actually announcing it, but here we are:

Shouldn’t keeping Hillary Clinton out of the White House take precedence over the final outcome of contested convention squabbles?

Shouldn’t somebody be at least asking?

Linking to a CNN report Calabrese continues, “Within minutes of each other, the pair issued statements late Sunday saying they will divide their efforts in upcoming contests with Cruz focusing on Indiana and Kasich devoting his efforts to Oregon and New Mexico. The strategy—something the two campaigns have been working on for weeks—is aimed at blocking Trump from gaining the 1,237 delegates necessary to claim to GOP nomination this summer.

“The extraordinary moves reflect the national strength Trump has shown and the inability of Republicans who oppose the New York billionaire to come together to stop him. Dividing up some of the remaining primary states by putting forward one strong alternative to Trump in each could be enough to take away delegates and curb Trump’s run to the nomination.

“The story goes on to say they’ve been discussing such an alliance since all the way back to the Ohio primary:

“Initial overtures started about a week after Kasich won the Ohio primary but were initially met with silence, according to a senior Kasich official. But talks—primarily between Weaver and Roe—started in earnest during the following weeks, as both campaigns saw a need to work something out, even before Trump’s big win in the New York primary, the source said.

“Sunday’s move is what many in the GOP have urged on for a while— a combined “Never Trump” strategy. Both campaigns have each sought to be the one that denies Trump a first-ballot win at the Republican convention. Each has offered their own rationales for why GOP delegates would then turn to them as the party standard-bearer.

“But these strategies by Kasich and Cruz have fallen short as Trump has proved a nearly unstoppable force in the Republican primary season. Kasich has won only his home state of Ohio, more than a month ago, and is far back in the delegate chase.

“It seems a little late to be going this route, but at this point it scarcely matters who finishes second and who finishes third.

“What matters if you don’t want Trump to be the nominee is for Trump to come in under 1,237. Then the fight begins anew for delegates, and that might also include former candidates like Rubio (who still has more than Kasich) or people who weren’t even running.

“Trump, of course, says they’re desperate losers and should just get out of the way. “But if that’s the case, the strategy should be easy to defeat, right?”

The picture on the Drudge Report of Cruz portrayed as a drag queen should convince us that Cruz and Kasich should flush their #Never Trump ideas down the nearest Transgender toilet.
