Trump keeps insulting the party that will nominate him
And Republicans are happy to have him as their nominee, anyway.
During a Tuesday rally in New Mexico, for example, Trump unleashed on Susana Martinez, the state’s governor. Martinez is the first female Latina governor in US history. And she’s a Republican.
But all that didn’t stop Trump for attacking Martinez — one of a handful of GOP governors who have yet to come out in support of Trump — for not attending his rally.
“We have to get your governor to get going — she’s got to do a better job, OK?” Trump said. “Your governor has got to do a better job. … She’s not doing the job. Hey, maybe I’ll run for governor of New Mexico — I’ll get this place going. She’s not doing the job. We got to get her moving. Come on. Let’s go, governor.”
…Later in the week, Trump homed in on two of his favorite targets that have said they will not support him: Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and failed 2016 presidential hopeful, and Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee…
“I understand losers,” Trump said of Romney.
Trump also compared Romney to several animals.
Romney “walked like a penguin around the stage,” Trump said.
“He choked like a dog,” Trump continued continued. “You ever see in athletics? He’s a choker. And you know the truth, I hate to say it: Once a choker, always a choker. I was nasty about it.”
Of Bush, Trump resurrected his “low-energy” label of the one-time 2016 presidential candidate.
