Pro-Trump Laura Ingraham allows Steve Moore to lie about rules, delegates, says ‘race is over’

The Trump surrogacy on conservative talk radio continued after the New York primary as Laura Ingraham railed against the “establishment,” continuing to dismiss Ted Cruz, the delegate counts or rules. Steve Moore appeared on the talk show Thursday morning claiming the “race is over” and Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton, win New York in a general election and other remarks contradicting the facts and polls.

“Imagine this was Ronald Reagan,” Moore began with an example rooted in a populist perspective and not the delegate or delegate process. Ingraham responded by using Marco Rubio as her example to set Moore to lay out a ton of falsehoods: “…They don’t want Trump to be the nominee so they’ll change the rules, they will jerry rig the system, they will override will of the vast majority of the voters….”

Listen to the full audio below.

Moore, like many others, are echoing the talking points of the Trump campaign and his victimhood after losing the delegate process in places like Louisiana, North Dakota or Colorado.

The rules didn’t change and Trump has only a slight chance to get to 1237. Most projections have Trump ending up with around 1100-1125, forcing a second vote at the convention. Hugh Hewitt discussed a pro-Trump analysis during his show, with expert guest after expert guest all confirming Hewitt’s math – Trump cannot get to 1237 delegates.

Laura Ingraham has been very pro-Trump and Moore tries to sound like he’s ok with Cruz, “I’m a Ted Cruz supporter. I like Ted Cruz,” he said before totally getting Pennsylvania wrong. Moore is accurate because only 17 delegates are bound in Pennsylvania and Cruz “allegiant” delegates have already been selected for the remaining representation because of Trump’s lack of ground and ability to understand the system.

There have been no rule changes or shifts by the establishment. Cruz has out performed Trump and will likely return the “stolen election” theme in two weeks after a successful run on the liberal leaning east coast.

“I would like to see these party elders rally everyone behind Trump,” Moore said (paraphrased somewhat), calling for the Cruz delegation to be marginalized and expecting the establishment to support the populist frontrunner.
