As the Trump campaign struggles to detach itself from a thuggish reputation, an old ally has done them no favors.

Roger Stone, a former consultant for the businessman, went on a radio program Monday and basically threatened delegates who don’t remain loyal to the Trump campaign.

“If Donald Trump does not run the table on the rest of the primaries and caucuses, we’re looking at a very, very narrow path in which the kingmakers will go all out to cheat, to steal, and to snatch this nomination from the candidate who is overwhelmingly selected by the voters,” Mr. Stone told Freedomain Radio, according to a transcript released by the organization.

It’s a fair point, of which I agree. But then he takes it a step too far — way too far.

“Which is why I have urged Trump supporters: Come to Cleveland. Join us in the Forest City. We’re going to have protests, demonstrations. We will disclose the hotels and the room numbers of those delegates who are directly involved in the steal. If you’re from Pennsylvania, we’ll tell you who the culprits are. We urge you to visit their hotel and find them,” Mr. Stone said.

Exactly not what the Trump campaign needs.
