Donald Trump started a new leg of his campaign - the whine parade. Yes, he has turned into a sniveling, whining, annoying little toddler who is crying about the rules being unfair, but only to him.

On Tuesday night at a CNN Town Hall in NYC, Donald declared that the system is "stacked against [him]" and that the RNC is actively trying to steal the nomination from him because they don't like his hair and his face and his screamy, angry voice. Ok, maybe I added that last part.

Why is Trump so angry? Well, he doesn't like the fact that Raphael Cruz got all the Colorado delegates and may be pulling some of the Louisiana delegates to his side as well. Trump told Anderson Cooper:

"They changed the rules a number of months ago. You know why they changed the rules? Because they saw how I was doing and they didn't like it."

Earlier in the day, Trump said the following about the nominating process, going so far as to call it a "scam" and said:

"It's a disgrace for the party. And Reince Priebus should be ashamed of himself. He should be ashamed of himself because he knows what's going on."

Reince wasn't having any of it and threw this shade at Trump late Tuesday night

Trump is now turning on his own. He is literally calling out the head of the RNC on national TV, which is not going to help his case in terms of garnering support to get close to the nomination. Is this the turning point? Is this where we see Trump peel away from the GOP and run Independent, thereby nearly guaranteeing a Democratic win in November? Who knows, but it is only April and the GOP convention isn't until the summer.

Buckle up, it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
