‘Trump is getting nuttier and nuttier’: Campaign operative unloads on his ‘irrational’ candidate
The Trump campaign has sprung several leaks in the past day, as campaign operatives have unleashed their frustration with the candidate to NBC News, ABC News and CNBC.
Now the New York Post has scored an interview with an unnamed Trump operative who says that his candidate is going completely off the rails.
“Trump is getting nuttier and nuttier,” the operative told the publication. “I did not think he’d be great in a general election, and thought there’d be episodes of paranoia/irrationality, but this is surprising for me.”
On Tuesday evening, one of CNBC reporter John Harwood’s sources said that people inside the Trump campaign were feeling “suicidal” about their candidate’s most recent missteps, while a Trump campaign source told NBC News reporter Ali Vitali that Trump’s behavior is “way worse than people realize.”
In other words, it seems that people within Trump’s own campaign are now openly raising questions about his mental stability.
It goes without saying that this is very much uncharted territory.
