Here’s a quick breakdown of the news of the day. There are too many unrelated developing stories here to compile into a single article:
1.) Desperate to change the news cycle after the ass kicking he received last night in the Northeast, Cruz announced Carly Fiorina as his VP pick in Indiana.
2.) #FeelTheBern was pretty much eliminated last night.
3.) You saw it right? Trump dominated the Northeast last night. He won something like 111 out of 118 delegates and nearly 40 of the 54 unbound delegates in Pennsylvania. His performance exceeded the wildest, most optimistic delegate projections. Trump could lose Indiana now and still win the nomination outright because he won the equivalent of Nebraska in unbound delegates.
4.) In a sure sign of the impending collapse of #NeverTrump, Rick Perry announced he would vote for Trump “at the end of the day” after labeling him “a cancer on conservatism” last summer.
5.) Dennis Hastert, the #TruConservative ex-Speaker of the House, admitted to molesting boys and was sentenced to 15 months in prison.
6.) Nothing really new in Trump’s foreign policy speech. Aside from his comments on Israel, it was pretty good. Watch it below.
7.) Paul Ryan, the current #TruConservative Speaker of the House, is pleased that the 50 state flags on Capitol Hill were removed in order to get rid of the “offensive” Mississippi state flag. You are probably not surprised he had nothing to say about that, or his views on amnesty, when he was Romney’s VP pick in 2012.
8.) In Missouri, the #TruCons killed a religious freedom bill in the Missouri House. Whether it is florists in Missouri or women’s restrooms in Tennessee, it seems like every day provides us with new evidence the #TruCons are incapable of conserving anything.
