Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh had some advice for Donald Trump supporters who have been complaining about the election delegate process.

“I’m not trying to tamp down spirit today,” Limbaugh said on his radio program Tuesday. “I’m just trying to keep everything in perspective for you.”

“Trump’s expected to sweep big, and it’s relevant in the sense that it could create even more momentum,” the political commentator said, noting that Trump’s complaints that the nomination is being stolen from him due to the delegate process is nonsense and supporters need to stop whining.

“But Scott Rasmussen says, ‘There is one ironic footnote to the Northeastern Primary. The very process that Trump claims is rigged will once again work to his benefit. His share of the delegates won on Tuesday will almost certainly exceed his share of the vote,'” Limbaugh said.

“Trump got 60% of the vote and 95% of the delegates. He got many more delegates than you would think proportionate to the votes. So it works both ways,” Limbaugh continued. “We don’t know who the delegates are. It doesn’t matter who they are, doesn’t matter what the delegates think; 118 of them are formally pledged to a candidate on the first ballot. Trump should win between 98 and 106 of these.”

Limbaugh explained that is the way the process works, “and nobody’s gonna complain because that’s the rules.”

“That’s the way it works out,” he said.  “Nobody’s whining about it. It’s just the way it happens.”
