A CNN panelist said Monday the Republican party would "scream bloody murder" that Donald Trump is unqualified if he was a Democrat.

Tara Setmayer made the remark as the network appeared to waiting for Donald Trump to step onstage at a rally in Pennsylvania.

According to the video captured by Mediaite, Setmayer said Trump's "schtick" is far from presidential.

"Donald Trump has won 38 percent of the Republican vote thus far in the primary [season]. And he's gotten what, less than 50 percent of the delegates," Setmayer said. "Over 62 percent of Republicans do not support Donald Trump.

"So all of this rah-rah cheerleading about how, 'oh, after tomorrow that's it. He's the presumptive front-runner.' This was baked into the cake already. No one expected Donald Trump not to do well in these states.

"I'll tell you right now, if Donald Trump were a Democrat, Republicans would be screaming bloody murder about how unqualified this person is and doesn't have the temperament to be president. People who are excusing this away are a bunch of hypocrites."

Trump has 845 delegate votes at this point in the primary season, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (559) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (148) trailing him.

Cruz and Kasich said they will join forces and try to stop Trump from becoming the nominee by essentially taking themselves out of a handful of upcoming primaries to let the other one take on Trump.

Pollster John Zogby told Newsmax TV the alliance is "way too late" to have much of an effect.
