Collusion - secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, especially in order to cheat or deceive others:
Donald J. Drumpf loosely tossing around the allegation of collusion between Cruz and Kasich, the result of their strategy to deny Drumpf the republican nomination on the first ballot. On the surface Drumpf's claim of collusion seemed just plain foolish and sure enough, checking definition of the word confirmed it is indeed foolish.
First, the strategy is not secret as the specifics are out and all over the news. Second, Neither Cruz or Kasich has denied the strategy. Third, Cruz and Kasich are quite simply making decisions as how to allocate their individual resources in the manner they each believe serves their best interests as they pursue the GOP nomination. Forth, there is absolutely no evidence of deception, although in Mr. Drumpf's mind he certainly believes they are trying to cheat him out of the winning the GOP nomination. Fifth, there is nothing illegal in allocating ones resources as they see fit. As long as the resources were acquired legally and the candidate is playing by the party's established rules. There is no evidence this isn't the case.
In a nutshell Drumpf is simply being Drumpf. Proving once again he is the demagogue most rational people know him to be. He is simply playing to the emotions of his ardent followers. For the rest of us, well, we simply hope Cruz and Kasich are successful.
