Donald Trump once famously said that he “could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” Last night in West Virginia he tried out a get out the vote strategy only slightly less daring than that one.

Speaking in Charleston, in advance of the state’s May 10 primary, Trump told the assorted crowd to... not vote (via Time):

“Now what I want you to do is save your vote,” Trump told the crowd in Charleston, West Virginia. “You know, you don’t have to vote anymore. Save your vote for the general election, OK? Forget this one, the primary is gone.”

Well, he’s right, and he’ll win big anyway.

At another point in the rally, Trump put a hard hat on. It’s a reason to talk about the Republican West Virginia primary.
