While Donald Trump may not be able to lock up the Republican nomination in Tuesday's five-state primary battle, he can certainly argue that he's the people's choice for the GOP nomination. This would be an especially sweet series of victories for Trump, especially following the news that his two remaining rivals, Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich, will divide their efforts in upcoming contests. Cruz is zeroing in on the crucial state of Indiana, while Kasich is devoting most of his time and efforts in Oregon and New Mexico.
The strategy is aimed at blocking Trump from gaining the 1,237 delegates necessary to claim to GOP nomination, ahead of their party's convention in July. Both of Kasich and Cruz have publicly tried to justify a contested convention for an array of reasons, including the argument against Trump's electability in a general election, as well as his lack of experience.
In February, Cruz attacked Donald Trump over his reality-television career during one of the Republican presidential debates. "In 2013, when I was leading the fight against the 'Gang of 8' amnesty bill, where was Donald?" Cruz asked. "He was firing Dennis Rodman on Celebrity Apprentice."
One of Trump's former contestants on Celebrity Apprentice, iconic comedian Andrew Dice Clay recently joined Larry King Now and recalled an off-camera “tiff” with his former 'boss' after the now-GOP frontrunner stated that he was “more famous” than the show’s contestants. This made the Diceman "mad." In the clip, Dice also explains what he believes is the origin of Trump’s campaign tone.
