Trump erupts at campaign manager as reelection stress overflows

Source: CNN

As he huddled with advisers on Friday evening, President Donald Trump was still fuming over his sliding poll numbers and the onslaught of criticism he was facing for suggesting a day earlier that ingesting disinfectant might prove effective against coronavirus.

Within moments, the President was shouting -- not at the aides in the room, but into the phone -- at his campaign manager Brad Parscale, three people familiar with the matter told CNN. Shifting the blame away from himself, Trump berated Parscale for a recent spate of damaging poll numbers, even at one point threatening to sue Parscale. It's not clear how serious the President's threat of a lawsuit was.
The White House did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment and the Trump campaign declined to comment.
Faced with an increasingly uphill battle for reelection and aides trying to steer him in new, sometimes conflicting directions, Trump has grown increasingly unnerved in the last week about his reelection prospects. Lashing out at Parscale was just the most recent manifestation of that anxiety.

I'm chortling because Parscale was probably all mixed up with "the Russia thing" and totally got away with it, so it's great to see the scorpion turn on him.

1. "Shifting the blame away from himself" - of course; that's what he always does.

You'd think that by now everyone in the world should know that working for Trump in any capacity is a career death sentence.

the idiot is threatening to sue his campaign manager because his POLL NUMBERS are taking. I am betting those are internal poll numbers. LOL

Sounds like good news to me.

21. Parscale could release

the records of how much Eric Trump's wife and Jr.'s girlfriend are being paid from campaign funds. Reportedly $15,000 monthly. I would not be surprised if the campaign is also paying child support for Jr.'s 5 kids. Parscale is living the high life with this "job". Raking in the dough.

14. Counting down the minutes until the WH accuses CNN of faking this report.

1, it sounds EXACTLY like Trump.
2, it COULD be trolling - a source in the WH fed it to CNN so they could accuse them of inventing stories.
3, assuming it's true (it's true), he's got a leak right in his inner circle of advisers.

Either way, "suing" your campaign manager?

ROFL and FUCK TRUMP. And Parscale.

has been financially rewarding for his family. Don't know what that means, but if he gets fired, maybe the entire Parscale clan can file for unemployment.

To me, he's just a younger, more vicious, more motivated version of Roger Stone.

23. "Trump Reportedly Threatened to Sue His Own Campaign Manager."




President Donald Trump reportedly berated and then threatened to sue his own 2020 presidential campaign manager, Brad Parscale, during a conference call with political advisers last Friday. According to a new report from CNN that cites three people who were in the room at the time, the president was “fuming” over the continued criticism he was receiving for suggesting that injecting disinfectant could be an effective treatment for the coronavirus and shouted at Parscale over the significant decline in his poll numbers. “It’s not clear how serious the president’s threat of a lawsuit was,” the CNN report added.

30. Anyone who would agree to work for this monstrosity has volunteered to get tossed like a rag doll.

There has to be something really defective in them already, that they actually approved of him from the start.

They, unlike Trump, have no one else they can blame when they get body slammed right in front of a speeding bus.



Brad Barscale, with quote unquote broken fingers.

Maybe the Orange Nightmare caught him trying to drink from his gold toilet and slammed the lid on them.

Paescale deserves everything he gets as well as ALL who are too timid, afraid or just plain fearful of the orange man in the clown suit to throw them some crumbs and scraps from his table. I now understand why as a child I always cried at the circus if a clown got too close to me.

46. Only the best people...with that said...

For Brad Barscale, this is his first real campaign. He was the digital campaign manager for Trump during his first run.

In other words, he doesn't have a fucking clue what he's doing (with the caveat, he does know what Trump is doing isn't helping)....and probably doesn't give a shit either. He's getting paid well and taking it....its his final meal ticket weather Trump win's or lose's. I wouldn't be surprised if he suggested to bring on Karl Rove as a consultant...not to actually help Trump win, but to network for future jobs.

At least he thinks he does. T-Rump could fire him and stiff him on his money.
