‘The embodiment of chaos’: GOP insiders in full-blown panic over Trump’s dumpster fire campaign

Published

on

Donald Trump’s landfill inferno campaign is still in tatters, despite the fact that Team Trump has been trying to “professionalize” itself in recent weeks.

Politico this week asked several anonymous GOP insiders whether the Clinton campaign or the Trump campaign had a stronger ground game set up for the fall — and 92 percent of Republicans thought Clinton’s presidential campaign was stronger.

That’s not all, however: Several of the GOP insiders who talked to Politico painted a picture of abject panic about just how far behind Trump’s campaign is right now.

“The embodiment of chaos,” said a Pennsylvania Republican.

“A bunch of posers who get no respect,” said an Ohio Republican.

“As small as his hands,” said an Iowa Republican of the size of the Trump campaign’s presence in Iowa.

“There is exactly zero staff, zero campaign offices, and zero official campaign presence for Trump in Colorado, aside from a handful of red hats that individual supporters of the New York real estate developer have bought for themselves online,” a Colorado Republican told Politico.

“There is no Trump campaign,” said a New Hampshire Republican. “No field staff, no scheduled [door-knocking] operation, no developed volunteer network.”

Given that the Trump campaign is so short on cash, it’s hard to imagine it will be able to plug resources into building its operations in key swing states.

Stephen Miller

According to a report from the Daily Beast, senior advisor for policy to Donald Trump, Stephen Miller is becoming more reclusive at the White House at the same time that the president is ramping up his hateful rhetoric against immigrants -- a topic on which the controversial Miller has the president's ear.

With the Beast noting, "Over the years, the 33-year-old senior policy adviser to the president has become virtually synonymous with the draconian immigration measures of the administration. He was a driving force behind the president’s brutal family-separation policy, one of the architects of Trump’s 'Muslim travel ban,' constantly agitates against legal immigration levels and refugees, and serves as the top White House speechwriter," the report states that Miller is rarely seen or heard from lately.

GOP now panicking about Trump because they’re losing ‘plausible deniability’ for their racist agenda: columnist

Published

on

After smearing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as anti-Semitic—-and letting the crowd at his Greenville, North Carolina rally roar "send her back!" for more than 10 seconds -- President Donald Trump was forced to distance himself from the chant.

He falsely claimed that he'd continued his speech immediately after the crowd started yelling. On Friday, the New York Times reported that Trump was under intense pressure by his daughter, Ivanka, and Vice President Mike Pence, to disavow the chants.

Writing in the Washington Post, columnist Greg Sargent lays out why "send her back" makes Republicans so nervous, when they seem perfectly fine with radical immigration policies like zero-tolerance and the separation of kids from their parents, which are applied to non-white asylum seekers.
