Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale (Twitter)

As President Donald Trump’s polling numbers continue to fall, Brad Parscale has been removed as campaign manager.

Parscale, who has scored millions from the Trump campaign for his several companies over the past four years, was promoted to the position, but after low rally turnout in Tulsa, Oklahoma, disastrous PR, and sagging polls, Parscale is being replaced by Bill Stepien.

Trump made the announcement on Facebook since Twitter appeared to be down for anyone with a blue checkmark, including the president.

“This one should be a lot easier as our poll numbers are rising fast, the economy is getting better, vaccines and therapeutics will soon be on the way, and Americans want safe streets and communities!” Trump typed.

According to CNN.com, White House adviser Jared Kushner informed Parscale that he was being demoted. He was the longest-serving campaign manager on the Trump campaign, as Trump had a tendency to swap out new managers or “chairs” frequently during 2016.

“Parscale was unaware until a few hours before the Wednesday night announcement that he was being demoted, a source familiar with the situation told CNN,” the report said.

He seemed to be referring to an incident described in a Washington Post story published right before the conference, which said the U.S. has concluded that Iran had sent emails pretending to be from the right-wing group the Proud Boys to Democratic voters.

Warren Whitlock enjoyed a remarkable career as a diversity officer at the federal Transportation Department, winning victories for poor communities of color that his superiors thought impossible. There’s even a documentary film about his success in getting municipal bus service for a Black neighborhood in Beavercreek, Ohio, that had been intentionally bypassed.

In its waning days of the Obama era, the Army chose Whitlock to become one of its highest-ranking Black civilians. His task: resolve diversity issues that had languished for years, some since George Herbert Walker Bush was commander-in-chief nearly three decades ago.

Expert: Trump’s ‘forward-leaning posture’ and ‘body tics’ are cause for serious concern

Published

A professor of Neurology at George Washington University says he believes there may be legitimate concerns over President Donald J. Trump's "forward-listing posture" that goes beyond the comical memes and gif responses normally shared on social media.
