Trump’s campaign manager mocked for proudly sharing poll that suggests Dems will keep the House in 2020

Published

On Thursday, President Donald Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale posted a poll that was meant to warn Democrats off of their impeachment efforts, by showing how it was hurting their prospects in a competitive House race.

Specifically, the “confidential” poll showed freshman Rep. Kendra Horn (R-OK) down seven points against a generic Republican, and impeachment opposed 52 percent to 45 percent:

Unfortunately for Parscale, the poll — which did not even bother to match Horn against a named challenger — did not exactly send the message Parscale was intending.

Oklahoma’s 5th Congressional District, which includes most of Oklahoma City and its suburbs, elected Trump by 14 points, implying that at least some of the people who voted for Trump there may now support impeachment. Moreover, the district is one of the reddest that flipped to the Democratic Party in 2018 — most pundits didn’t even view it as particularly competitive — so if Horn is still competitive against a generic Republican, it bodes poorly for GOP hopes of an impeachment-fueled backlash giving them back the House.

Many commenters on social media didn’t hesitate to point this out to Parscale:

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday morning, former Rep., Dave Jolly (R-FL) scorched his former colleagues over the way they are approaching the impeachment of Donald Trump, saying they have shirked their duties and are "embracing corruption."

In an extended diatribe, while speaking with host Ali Velshi, Jolly was unsparing when talking about the current Republican Party.

"The founders expected truth as a currency would somehow always win out but we are not living in that era," he began. "To your question about the Republican Party, are we watching the death of it? I really believe we are. It is an interesting place as the nation watches the impeachment hearing to be a life long Republican recently having left the party watching this. There is a solemnness to watching a party you once knew now be completely devoid of honor."

Donald Trump is the O.J. Simpson of American politics

Published

Remember the low-speed chase? Former NFL star, actor and TV pitchman O.J. Simpson had just been charged with the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman. The two had been found stabbed to death outside Nicole's condominium in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, just after midnight on June 13, 1994. O.J. had quickly come under suspicion for obvious reasons: Nicole was his ex-wife. LAPD detectives were ordered to notify Simpson of Nicole's death and drove to his house on nearby Rockingham Avenue. There they found blood on the door handle of his Bronco and inside his house, and on a right glove which matched a left-hand glove discovered at the murder scene. The gloves were found to have both Simpson's blood and the victims' on them.
