Colo. GOP on Trump Loss: 'We Did It'

Ted Cruz wasn't the only one celebrating his easy victory in Colorado on Saturday night: The state's GOP briefly made its glee clear over Donald Trump's loss, tweeting, "We did it. #NeverTrump". The tweet underscores a party in the throes of an anti-Trump revolt that the Gateway Pundit calls "UNREAL," though the tweet was quickly deleted and the state party tweeted hours later that it "was the result of unauthorized access to our account and in no way represents the opinion of the party. We are investigating." Intentional or not, Politico notes that the Boston Globe's editorial board is piling on with a fake front page imagining a Trump presidency dated a year from Saturday: "DEPORTATIONS TO BEGIN," reads the headline, as stories imagine riots and curfews as the Donald-in-chief calls for tripling of the ICE force.
