Trump Roasts Colorado GOP After Losing Delegates: Voters ‘Are Going Crazy’

The biggest story in politics is Donald Trump taking home exactly zero delegates from the Colorado Republican Convention, at least according to Donald Trump.

“The people out there are going crazy,” Trump said in a Monday call-in interview on Fox News. “They’re going absolutely crazy. Because they weren’t given a vote. This was given by politicians. It’s a crooked deal. And I see it.”

“There was no voting. I didn’t go out there to make a speech or anything,” the billionaire continued. “That’s not the way democracy is supposed to work.”

Trump went on to say the caucus system is also “rigged” on the Democratic side, where he said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) hasn’t been treated fairly.

The remarks came after Trump rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) captured all of Colorado’s 34 state delegates on Saturday. Trump won just seven alternate delegates.

The controversy dates back to last summer, when the state party canceled its presidential straw poll and delegate selection shifted to “the hands of party insiders and activists” in caucuses, leaving 90 percent of Republican voters as spectators, according to the Denver Post,

Not long after Cruz emerged victorious, the Colorado Republican Party tweeted “We did it. #NeverTrump” from its official account, further fueling anger from disillusioned Trump supporters. The message was quickly deleted.

Trump responded on Twitter, saying “phony politicians” stole Colorado’s votes through a “totally unfair” system:
