Trump’s Campaign Mess

Courtesy of The New York Times:

LAS VEGAS — Donald J. Trump has shaken up his presidential campaign for the second time in two months, hiring a top executive from the conservative website Breitbart News and promoting a senior adviser in an effort to right his faltering campaign.

Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC, will become the Republican campaign’s chief executive, and Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser and pollster for Mr. Trump and his running mate, Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana, will become the campaign manager.

Paul Manafort, the campaign chairman, will retain his title. But the staffing change, hammered out on Sunday and set to be formally announced Wednesday morning, was seen by some as a demotion for Mr. Manafort.

The news, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, was confirmed early Wednesday by Ms. Conway in a brief interview, but she rejected the idea that the changes amounted to a shake-up and said that Mr. Manafort was not being diminished.

 Stephen Bannon directed that dreadful film about Sarah Palin…”The Undefeated.” Trump’s campaign is sure to benefit from this bone-headed idea.
What on earth was Trump thinking with that bigly head of his?

    Donald Trump Put a Sarah Palin Superfan in Charge of His Campaign
    “Bannon is a former Goldman Sachs banker who might be most famous for his unabashed love of Sarah Palin, the failed vice presidential candidate who quit the Alaska governorship in the middle of her term—Bannon made a 2011 documentary about her called The Undefeated.”

    Hello Irish! The story just broke: Manafort resigned from The Donald’s campaign. It seems the Associated Press story from yesterday confirmed that confidential e-mails from his firm contradicted his claims that he never lobbied on behalf of Ukrainian political figures in the U.S. The e-mails show that Manafort’s firm directly orchestrated covert lobbying on behalf of the then-ruling Ukrainian government led by Viktor Yanukovych, which may have included attempts to sway American public opinion.

    Oh shit! I’m glad that this story is growing legs fast, and not being buried soon! No wonder Trump’s stance on the Russian annexation of the Crimea is soft, and the crack about reduced American participation in NATO is bullshit! I believe that Manafort is a Russian agent, and Benedict Trump is beholden to Russian financiers and money men. If this is the case, and the money trail leads back to Russia, then Trump and Manafort are guilty of treason, and should be tried as traitors!
