Trump is so mad at his campaign manager he is now doing the opposite of the advice he receives: report

Published

President Donald Trump’s campaign is in disarray after the embarrassing turnout for his Tulsa rally and the cancellation of a planned rally in New Hampshire, according to a new report by CNN.

“With just four months until Election Day, the Trump campaign is struggling to deploy what was supposed to be a chief feature of the President’s reelection effort — the signature Trump rally,” CNN reported Monday. “Three weeks after the poorly attended Tulsa event, the hangover is still being felt inside the campaign, aides and advisers tell CNN. And safety concerns over bad weather caused the campaign to postpone a rally scheduled for Saturday in New Hampshire, even as skies were expected to be clear by the time Trump took the stage.”

“Before the coronavirus hit, campaign officials expected to be holding one to two rallies a week by now. But with cases surging across the country, it’s unclear if the campaign will ever be able to work its way up to that pace,” CNN explained.

There is ongoing fallout from the Tulsa debacle.

“Internally, several officials have blamed campaign manager Brad Parscale for the Tulsa debacle, faulting him for not only touting the number of sign-ups but also for badly overestimating how many people would show up,” CNN reported. “Officials say Trump’s relationship with Parscale hasn’t been the same since.”

CNN spoke to one Trump advisor.

“‘He does not like Brad,’ the adviser said, noting that Trump has taken to frequently cutting Parscale off during meetings and disagreeing with nearly every position he takes — at times ultimately agreeing with the same position when it is later reiterated by another aide in the room,” CNN reported. “‘It’s very clear that when Brad offers a position, Trump decides to be against it,’ the adviser said.”

However, that was disputed by Trump campaign senior advisor Lara Trump, who is also Trump’s daughter-in-law.

“He has the confidence of the President and the entire family,” she told CNN.

2020 Election

Is this Trump’s best shot at stealing the 2020 election?

Published

on

In a time of instability and uncertainty, there's one thing we can count on: Donald Trump will do everything he possibly can to retain power through the forthcoming election and beyond. His motives are well-known: If he loses the election, he'll not only go down in history as a one-term loser, which is anathema to his ridiculously hyperbolic puffery, but it's likely he'll face indictment on myriad criminal charges, while fighting off an avalanche of lawsuits aimed at his criminal negligence.

Trump’s Axios interview put his ‘willful ignorance’ on full display for the country: Ex-RNC official

Published

on

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.'"
