Frontrunner warns of “a lot of very unhappy people” if he is robbed of nomination
March 21, 2016
A poll reveals that a majority of Americans would like to smack Donald Trump in the face with their fists.
According to the findings by WalletHub, 54 percent of respondents said they’d love to hit Trump in the mush.
Trump’s punchability ranks way higher than Hillary Clinton, who was placed second in the survey with 14 percent of votes.
President Obama has managed to piss off fewer voters recently, ranking in third with 13 percent, while any “Congressman” was placed in fourth with 12 percent.
Accountants, IRS agents and tax attorneys were all further down the hit list in single digits.
Nevertheless, the media has fixated on an incident involving Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who is alleged to have manhandled a protester at a rally Saturday.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus appeared on CNN Sunday to laud over the incident.
“Violence isn’t the answer; getting involved isn’t the answer,” Priebus said. “I think you leave these things up to the professionals.”

Trump defended Lewandowski saying that he applauded his “spirit”.
Lewandowski was also accused of grabbing the arm of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields during a press conference last week, a charge he has flatly denied.
Trump himself appeared on ABC’s This Week Sunday, and said that he would discourage his supporters from rioting were he to be robbed of the GOP nomination.
“I would certainly tell them that, but, you know, look, these people are — are fervent. They are really — they want to see positive things happen for our country. And I would certainly say that. I don’t want to see riots. I don’t want to see problems.” Trump said, adding that there would be “a lot of very unhappy people” should he be denied the nomination by virtue of a contested convention.
