Tired of being somebody he is not - and Heaven knows that Trump has not been the most gracious of losers so far - the Grand Sick Party candidate has resorted to hiring people who agree with him.
Now forking over the spinach has never been personally popular with the Baron of Bankruptcy, and with a campaign style that has alienated virtually every major news outlet - even the Conservative ones - he has acquired the minds of two people who he knows. On second thought, could it be that he is just selling himself to the highest bidder before the campaign is worthless?
Stephen Bannon, a former banker who runs the influential conservative outlet Breitbart News and is known for his fiercely anti-establishment politics, has been named the Trump campaign’s chief executive. Kellyanne Conway, a veteran Republican pollster who has been close to Trump for years, will assume the role of campaign manager.
Now firmly entrenched in the First Loser position in the race for the White House, Deadbeat Donald went to the Hamptons in the effort to separate more people from their dollars. It is something that he is accustomed to doing, promising the world, apologizing - maybe - for failing to deliver, while walking away richer than ever as the suckers are left holding the bag.
Except that more than a few of the party goers had something to say about their discomfort with The Hair From Outerspace's campaign.
Trump’s decision developed over the weekend as he traveled to the Hamptons in New York for a Saturday evening fundraiser at the home of Woody Johnson, the wealthy Republican benefactor who owns the New York Jets.
According to three Republicans familiar with that event, Trump was confronted by several supporters there, including mega-donor Rebekah Mercer (a major investor in Briebart, but what's a little nepotism among bloodsuckers? - BTJ) about news reports on his advisers’ desire to tame his personality.
Trump was visibly infuriated at those stories, the Republicans said, and he conferred with Mercer about potential steps he might take to remake his campaign and populate his inner circle with voices more like his own.
To Bannon and Mercer it's a no brainer, providing the Breitbart News Outlet a direct line to the Donald for Despot circus. The fiscal uncertainty of being paid must not be lost on the banking tycoon, but when you are the last tabloid standing, who cares? Not only can Bannon report the silliness of this campaign, he gets to make it all up himself!
And a man from his favorite country summed it up best back in 1994 when he said "America!"
Not that Conway has it bad either. Where else could you be assured of a polling job then with a man whose every word requires another quick evaluation of the reaction of a specific cross-section of America. By now Kellyanne should have the Uneducated Poor White Angry Racist group down pat. You want to please the Narcissist In Chief? Ask only those people and he will be thrilled. Talk about job security.
Look at Lewandowski, who turned "You're Fired!" into a CNN gig. Or maybe it was all part of the plan to get a mole in place on a News Site all along. He even got the schlubs at the Network to pay for it! Next up, getting those pesky Mexicans to pony up for that wall.
Not all is rosy for the staffers at the Stumping For Dollars home office as the quotes of a sensitive situation remain anonymous. Keep in mind that Manafort is still in charge - who is kidding who - but the reports come rolling in that the Clown King is unhappy with his circus manager. He is probably safe in the position until the end of the campaign when he will be let go with all the other newly unemployed, for Trump would be loath to have to pay anybody severance. Declare the Committee broke and leave all the creditors and working stiffs empty handed.
It has been the modus operandi for decades, why stop now?
