Hugh Hewitt tells GOP to change RNC rules to stop Trump, Dan Scavino says ban Hewitt from convention

Conservative radio show host Hugh Hewitt offered up some shocking suggestions for the GOP, Donald Trump and Republicans in general: change the RNC rules at the convention so that Trump is not the nominee.

“They ought to get together and let the convention decide. And if Donald Trump pulls over a makeover in the next four to five weeks, great, they can keep him. It would be better if he had done so 5 weeks ago. But it’s awful and it ended bad last night,” Hewitt said on his radio show Wednesday morning, in reference to Trump’s speech from his Westchester County golf club, reading from a teleprompter and promised to turn the page and earn the votes of Republican voters who opposed him in the primary.

Hewitt said, is “like ignoring Stage IV cancer. You can’t do it, you gotta go attack it.”

“And right now the Republican Party is facing — the plane is headed towards the mountain after the last 72 hours,” he said.

“She’s gonna be president unless Republicans change their nominee,” Hewitt said. “When the dust clears we will have lost the House, we will have lost the Senate, we will have lost governorships.”

Hewitt discussed the prospect of changing the Republican national convention rules to prevent the pledged delegates from voting Trump in on the first ballot.

“The Republican National Committee can do one thing: they can change the rules to make the first two ballots advisory,” Hewitt said.

He also suggested making the first ballot require a supermajority of votes.

“Make the delegates own it. If you are gonna commit suicide and someone is giving you a gun, don’t blame the gun, don’t blame the guy or the gal who gave you the gun — blame yourself,” he concluded.

The party is bigger than Trump others have said, but his campaign responded with a shocking move of their own.

“Authoritarians gonna authoritarian, I guess. Maybe what you’re seeing here from Scavino is panic, aimed at Hewitt because he’s a convenient target after this morning’s comments but driven by fear of a broader revolt,” wrote Hot Air before quoting a delegate from Colorado.

“When the media is debating whether or not our nominee is a racist, we are losing,” said Colorado Republican Guy Short in the Hot Air post. “I received an email just this morning from a fellow delegate pleading for a rules change to stop Trump and proposing specific rules to do just that.”…
