Open letter to Trump voters from his top strategist

and defector

https://www.yahoo.com/style/open-letter-trump-voters-top-170000991.html

"Almost a year ago, recruited for my public relations and public policy expertise, I sat in Trump Tower being told that the goal was to get The Donald to poll in double digits and come in second in delegate count. That was it."

"When there was a tweet that contained an error, he would blame it on an intern; when there was a photo containing a World War II Nazi Germany background, he would blame it on an intern; when he answered questions in an overtly controversial fashion, he would claim that he did not properly hear the question. He refused to take responsibility for his actions while frequently demanding apologies from others.

Imagine Trump wronged you, even in the smallest possible way. He would go to the grave denying he had ever done anything wrong to you ever."


Not surprising, but it's good to hear it from someone from the inside. I'm sure Trump will write it off as a disgruntled ex-employee.

1. Best piece I've seen

in a long while that uses the term "liberal elite".

4. It's okay to be elite as long as you aren't liberal

Trump is the poster child for "elite" and always has been, even though his political views have "evolved".

11. Think he cares zero about ideology - politics - He is just a single

person - ranting about whatever doesn't make sense to him.

Despite the 99% craziness - I actually want to know some of the answers - things we never ask - like - Hell, why can't you buy cheap prescription drugs? healthcare across state lines?, Why can't we get all the offshore money back to US?, Why don't we make foreign countries help pay for us to defend them??

3. I read it. Great piece.

I think it's a bit long for the minuscule, gnat like attention spans of drumpf supporters, as well as containing too many big words for them to grasp. At least for the couple drumpfers I work with. Archie and Jughead comic books are about their speed.

5. Sounds like she's talking about the entire gop party. Maybe she got a better deal with Cruz.

6. HA ! Many of us said so - not really wanting to be prez - BUT why in

the world - when he got the support of millions - did he not pull his boot straps up and learn and learn and learn. He might have had a fighting chance. However, maybe he truly doesn't want to BE prez

12. Rachel Maddow said she didn't think he wanted

to work that hard. That was months ago, but I do wonder if he thinks he can get the top job and just delegate all the work except the photo ops.

13. Kind of reminds me of being in school and getting by with only

the knowledge you know. But, guess for most students like that - reality sunk in - in the real world you have to learn - It is so obvious Trump doesn't want to learn more than he has to - and I guess he's probably never been asked to.
