@SopanDeb it's a bad, yet not surprising, sign that he doesn't realize that that's not how it works.

The GOP frontrunner, ladies and gentlemen:
Donald Trump tells West Virginians to not vote in the GOP primary on Tuesday. "Save your vote" for the general election, he says.

Trump encourages West Virginia crowd not to vote in primary. Tells it to save vote for the general election.

@SopanDeb i thought i misheard that. what what what???

Nope. You didn’t mishear. Here’s what he said:
And now what I want you to do is save your vote. You don’t have to vote anymore. Save your vote for the general election, OK? Forget this one. The primary’s gone. Save your vote for the general election in November.

@SopanDeb Do West Virginians need to conserve their energy for some reason?

primaries sap our precious bodily fluids https://t.co/w651iBaoMv

@wpjenna he has no idea how the primaries work. LOL

Trump is apparently unaware that there are more races on the primary ballot than his. Idiot. https://t.co/iRWuJGlFJA
— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) May 6, 2016
What about other races? This is close to actual proof that Trump doesn't care about any other Republican. https://t.co/5rlN3zUT9K
— Mark Hemingway (@Heminator) May 6, 2016
@SopanDeb But I thought he cared about the will of the voters.

@SopanDeb um…. um…. He does know people can do both, right?
— KB (@sorrykb) May 5, 2016
@wpjenna That makes even less sense that his average nonsensical statement. What does saving a vote possibly mean?

Or maybe he’s afraid of how it works:
@wpjenna He's probably worried people will vote for the other candidates who are still on the ballot even though they dropped out.

Well, in any event:
