“They ought to get together and let the convention decide…”

“Never Trump” conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt took to his radio show Wednesday to demand that the Republican National Committee (RNC) strip presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump from the nomination at the party’s convention.

“It’s like ignoring stage-four cancer. You can’t do it, you gotta go attack it,” Hewitt said. “And right now the Republican Party is facing — the plane is headed towards the mountain after the last 72 hours.”

“I wanna support the nominee of the party, but I think the party ought to change the nominee,” Hewitt continued. “Because we’re going to get killed with this nominee.”

“They ought to get together and let the convention decide,” he said. “And if Donald Trump pulls over a makeover in the next 4 to 5 weeks, great, they can keep him. It would be better if he had done so 5 weeks ago.”

Hewitt’s declaration on Trump comes after Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., rescinded his endorsement of the real estate tycoon.
