Hiring of Breitbart exec spells utter doom for Trump

Hiring of Breitbart exec spells utter doom for Trump

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/presidential-campaign/291748-hiring-of-breitbart-exec-spells-utter-doom-for-trump

The hiring of Breitbart News Chairman Steve Bannon as the Trump campaign's new CEO is beyond parody.

Bannon is "a legitimately sinister figure, a "bully," and a "dictator" who is "prone to a lot of tirades." And that's just what former employees say about him.

In other words, Donald Trump hired a version of himself.

Bannon has ruined the Breitbart News operation by running it as a Trump super-PAC full of sensationalized stories and Trump fan fiction, rather than the sharp, muscular, anti-establishment vision the late Andrew Breitbart had for the enterprise.

Donald Trump is in a room with the walls closing in.

Every week is worse than the one before it.

His deficit in crucial states like Virginia and Florida is growing. He has no campaign. He has no field offices. He is finally starting TV ads this weekend, as the Summer Olympics end.

I don't know what Kellyanne Conway can do as campaign manager. She is a skilled and respected operative and pollster, known for expertise in messaging to women.

But Trump has resisted all advice for months and he has refused to pivot to the middle, to professionalize his campaign, to grow as a candidate or to unify Republicans.

Bannon's hiring is a huge middle finger to campaign Chairman Paul Manafort. Manafort has been trying (and failing) to drag Trump out of a primary mindset into a general election where Trump will need to win 65 to 70 million votes.

1. Manafort is tied to an attempt to use foreign money to lobby the US Government.

6. He already has the crazy vote. Breitbart's ghost ads ZERO to the campaign.

Decision is just weird.
