The 'pledge' was thrown out by ALL the campaigns...especially Trump!

All the hullabaloo with the infamous pledge. If one does just a hint of research, one would see the point where that was not merely abrogated, but was thrown out by ALL the remaining campaigns!

Republican Presidential front-runner Donald Trump said during a CNN Town Hall that he won't support the eventual Republican nominee, if it isn't him. Senator Ted Cruz and Governor John Kasich were more vague with their answers.
So what do Trumpsters think about never voting for someone who broke their pledge to the GOP now? Oh, it's ok if Trump says it's ok. So just feign outrage if Cruz, or anyone for that matter, has a legitimate problem with it? Yes! Got it.

ADDENDUM: Also of perhaps greater importance...
TheResurgent: When Ted Cruz promised to back the GOP nominee it was a pledge to NOT run as a third party candidate, a possibility envisioned by Reince Priebus and others who thought that if Donald Trump did not win the nomination he would self-fund an independent presidential bid. Politico reported in September of 2015:
“The Republican National Committee on Wednesday privately reached out to GOP presidential candidates to ask whether they’d be willing to sign a pledge stating they would not run as an independent candidate in the event they fail to win the Republican nomination in 2016.”
The only people who believe Ted Cruz violated his loyalty pledge on Wednesday night are those who believe they must violate their conscience by voting for Donald Trump.

ADDENDUM II: Levin added...
On Thursday’s Mark Levin show, Sen. Ted Cruz told Donald Trump days in advance that he would not endorse him, and Trump’s team had already read the speech hours before Cruz took the stage. Now Trump and his surrogates are whining that Cruz broke his pledge! Is that the same pledge that Trump already voided months ago? This is phony drama and if Trump loses, this may well be the moment that sealed his fate. Trump’s surrogates are continuing to divide the party again over this issue. Trump needs conservatives, but for some reason he doesn’t seem to want them. The burden to unify is on him.
