On Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced on Facebook that campaign manager Brad Parscale has been demoted, after several months of a reportedly rocky relationship and frustration from the president over his sinking poll numbers.
Commenters on social media buried Parscale in mockery over the news.

BREAKING: Brad Parscale is out as Trump's campaign manager. Apparently there *is* a limit to how much you can grift in this administration (and it's a waterfront mansion, a pair of condos, a yacht and a Ferrari).

Parscale made the mistake of tweeting a Rasmussen poll showing Trump at 48% this morning and bragging about how good that was. That was enough for Trump. Into the cornfield.

How much did Parscale fleece from donors to our for his exotic cars and luxe lifestyle?

Is this Trump’s best shot at stealing the 2020 election?
Trump’s Axios interview put his ‘willful ignorance’ on full display for the country: Ex-RNC official
In a column for the conservative Bulwark, the former spokesperson for the Republican National Committee said the interview Donald Trump participated in with Jonathan Swan of Axios should be put to rest any doubts anyone might have had that the president is out of his depth.
Reacting to the interview done in conjunction with HBO, Tim Miller -- who is now an advisor to the Never Trumper Lincoln Project -- claimed the president's comments about the CoVID-19 pandemic and resulting U.S. death toll that has raced passed 150,000 is a sign "Trump is fundamentally incapable of recognizing the true nature of what he calls the 'invisible enemy.'"
