The anti–Donald Trump movement seemed to hit its peak over the past week when Trump rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich appeared to team up against the Republican frontrunner.
Unfortunately for #NeverTrump, the team-up didn't seem to matter much on Tuesday as Trump swept the night's East Coast primaries. And the internet took notice:
