Donald Trump's victory in Indiana came down quick as a guillotine—but even before the election results rolled in, the GOP faithful were jumping ship.

Former John McCain aide Mark Salter declared his allegiance to Hillary Clinton earlier today.

the GOP is going to nominate for President a guy who reads the National Enquirer and thinks it's on the level. I'm with her. — Mark Salter (@MarkSalter55) May 3, 2016

RedState blogger Ben Howe, who's promised to phone bank for Clinton if Trump gets the nomination, followed suit.

Once it became clear that Trump would take Indiana by a landslide, Meghan McCain and Lindsey Graham predicted the party's altogether demise.

They hate Trump for the same reason they hated Andrew Jackson. Because he isn’t one of the ruling class and has the everyday people supporting him.

Anyone supporting Hillary was not a conservative, which we already knew.

Trump and Sanders can take turns over the next two months until the FBI takes Hillary out of the running.

The uni-party rears it head.

I predict a national unity ticket

Clinton/Kasich 2016

or maybe

Sanders/Cruz 2016

So let me get this straight. These clowns will vote for a communist, man hating feminist because of some absurd dislike of Donald Trump.

PNAC neocons rally around Hillary. Where else were they going to go?

Amen!

I think C-Cup said it best. "We found out Republicans can't win without the base. Now we'll see if the base can win without the establishment."

Nobody ever won an election by picking up their ball and going home. You win an election by making the other guy pick up his ball and go home. Tonight, we beat the GOPe.

Step back and think about that. We put an outsider into the nomination for president, all the way through a rule book specifically written to stop outsiders from doing that.

When the IRS stopped tea party groups from forming, we came back. When the Mississippi GOPe forced McDaniels out and Thad Cochran in, we came back. When McConnel declared he was going to destroy us, we sent his primary competitor to the governor's mansion.

We are now one election away from being the establishment ourselves.

Salter is blind to the fact that the main stream media has long since become more unreliable than the Enquirer and just as much yellow journalism. The Enquirer can be rightly credited with breaking a good number of important stories that the main stream yellow journalism media denied, but later realized were true. Traditional journalism has been transformed into naked propaganda politically Left journalism professors.

These people are socialists just like Hillary and Bernie. That’s why they will support her, she will advance the very same agenda they want.

Exactly, these idiots from the establishment think this is all happening in a vacuum.
