Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale on Monday appeared to wink at two women hosts on CBS News.
Parscale concluded his interview on CBS This Morning by asserting that the tech industry has a bias against conservatives.
“They want to do everything they can to try to prevent conservative voices,” Parscale opined. “And I think you have multiple platforms I call the Palo Alto mafia trying to stop that.”
“Well, Brad, you have been called the secret weapon,” host Gayle King noted. “Your wife summed it up best. You were thrown into the Super Bowl, never played a game and you won. And I guess you’re feeling okay about 2020.”
“I feel good about 2018 and I feel good about 2020,” Parscale said. “This president’s agenda continues to change this country for the better. And we just can’t go back — just can’t go back to how things were.”
And with that, Parscale gave King a wink. He then turned to co-host Norah O’Donnell and did the same. However, co-host John Dickerson did not get a wink from the Trump campaign chief.

Rex Tillerson tells Nikki Haley she wasn’t important enough to be in his meetings
Infighting among former Donald Trump administration officials escalated on Monday as former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson threw shade on former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.
In an upcoming book, Haley charged that Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John Kelly attempted to recruit her to help "save the country" -- an effort in which she refused to cooperate.
Kelly shot back at Haley on Monday, essentially saying it was above her pay grade.
House Democrat smacks down Trump’s claim of ‘doctored’ transcripts: ‘Those transcripts are reviewed by those witnesses’
On Monday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," during a discussion of acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney's legal situation, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) trashed President Donald Trump's claim that the transcripts from the impeachment hearings were somehow falsified.
"I will say that the craziness continues," said Connolly. "For the president today to assert, based on nothing, the transcripts were doctored and don't really reflect the deposition of the witnesses we heard from — and by the way, those transcripts are reviewed by those witnesses and their attorneys before they're released for accuracy — but secondly, of course, to have the chief of staff of the president actually suing his own White House to get a decision about whether or not he's required to respond to congressional demand for testimony or the White House directive really brings us into all-new territory in terms of craziness. And it's really disturbing to watch."
DOJ seeks to throw out indicted congressman’s law firm for allegedly representing both sides
On Monday, the Justice Department filed a motion to disqualify the law firm Fletcher & Mack from representing Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) in his upcoming federal trial for misuse of campaign funds.
The law firm, contended DOJ prosecutors, is also representing witnesses who are set to testify against Hunter, and thus has a serious conflict of interest.
Hunter was charged last year, along with his wife Margaret, with spending over $250,000 in campaign funds on personal trips, dental work, and to settle bar tabs, among other things — and falsifying FEC spending reports to make their theft look legitimate. Damning transcripts revealed Hunter's wife told him to charge a purchase of clothes as "[golf] balls for the wounded warriors, and that he demanded the Navy "go f**k themselves" after personnel refused to allow him to tour a base to make it look as though there was a campaign purpose to his trip to Europe.
