"... we may be one oppo drop away from Bannon not being a part of this campaign"

CHUCK TODD: Are you happy with the hires of Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway?

REINCE PRIEBUS: Look, you know, I go with the flow based on what the campaign wants to do. I think Kellyanne is doing a phenomenal job. I don't know Steve Bannon, to tell you the truth, very well.


REINCE PRIEBUS: I'm going to get to know him. I mean, I'm starting to get to know--


CHUCK TODD: All right. The Steve Bannon--

ANDREA MITCHELL: "I don't know Steve Bannon," wow.

CHUCK TODD: "I don't know Steve Bannon," Hugh, what did you make of that?

HUGH HEWITT: I don't know Steve Bannon either.

CHUCK TODD: I think we as discussed, we may be one oppo drop away from Bannon not being a part of this campaign.

HUGH HEWITT: Very possibly.


A fiery wreck even more spectacular that Paul Manafort's must be coming soon.

Kellyanne 'Clueless' Conway - a perfect match for Trump

From With All Due Respect on Bloomberg TV 8/12

MARK HALPERIN: Oh, then you'll win probably.

KELLYANNE CONWAY: We could win because nobody's talking enough about Gary Johnson. We see in the state-wide polls he's rising.

HALPERIN: And hurting her?

CONWAY: And he's hurting both of them. But look, Hillary Clinton will get 41, 42, 43 percent of the vote before she gets out of bed in the morning. The question is, How does she get to 51, 52 and stay there in these swing states? Gary Johnson helps and hurts in very unusual ways.


No state requires a candidate to win a majority of the votes cast in the general election in order to win its electoral votes - all are strictly plurality-required. In 1992 George H. W. Bush carried Arizona with 37% of the vote and Bill Clinton won Nevada likewise with 37%.

Five days after that interview, Trump picked this genius to be his campaign manager. Which pleases me no end, that Trump's campaign manager is someone who will feel that Trump is safe because Hillary's polling does not "get to 51, 52 and stay there in these swing states". The only thing that will please me more will be when Trump returns to being his own campaign manager, because Donald is even stupider than Kellyanne.

Trump campaign undergoes major overhaul

Source: CNN

By Jeremy Diamond, CNN

Updated 3:26 AM ET, Wed August 17, 2016

(CNN) Donald Trump's campaign is undergoing a major staff shakeup with less than three months to Election Day, adding two officials to top posts overseeing his struggling campaign.

Trump has named Steve Bannon, a former investment banker and the executive chairman of Breitbart News, to the post of chief executive and promoted Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser and pollster to his campaign, to the position of campaign manager, Conway confirmed to CNN early Wednesday morning.

. . . Paul Manafort, the Trump campaign's chairman and chief strategist, will stay on as campaign chairman, Conway said.

"I look at it as an expansion of the team. Paul remains as Chairman," Conway told CNN.

Trump gets date wrong twice while implying Clinton lacks mental stamina

Source: The Guardian

. . . Addressing a rambunctious crowd in Florida, a crucial swing state, he added: “I watched Hillary today, which was really boring. It’s hard to watch. I have an obligation to watch. Fortunately she never goes on very long because she wants to go home.”

But Trump himself, locked in a grueling campaign, twice made a slip of the tongue. “By the way, is there any place to be that’s better than a Friday night in Florida at a Trump rally? No place.”

A few supporters shouted, “It’s Thursday!”

Later he said: “We joke. It’s Friday night and we’re having fun.” More supporters yelled, “It’s Thursday!” but he appeared to assume it was more cheering.

Diagnose Trump - Petition

The American Psychiatrist Association has declared it unethical for psychiatrists and psychologists to “comment on an individual’s mental state without examining him personally and having the patient’s consent to make such comments.” I call on mental health professionals to publicly urge the Republican party to conduct an evaluation of Mr. Trump and officially determine if he is mentally fit to lead the free world. #DiagnoseTrump

Trump aide takes responsibility for Melania speech

Source: USAToday

A Trump aide has taken responsibility for the controversy over Melania Trump’s speech, saying she offered to resign but Trump rejected it.

In a statement released by the Trump campaign, in-house staff writer Meredith McIver said it “was my mistake.”

"In working with Melania Trump on her recent First Lady speech, we discussed many people who inspired her and messages she wanted to share with the American people. A person she has always liked is Michele Obama. Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama’s speeches. This was my mistake, and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant."

How Melania Trump’s Speech Veered Off Course and Caused an Uproar

Source: NYT

The speechwriters, Matthew Scully and John McConnell, sent Ms. Trump a draft last month, eager for her approval.

Weeks went by. They heard nothing.

Inside Trump Tower, it turned out, Ms. Trump had decided she was uncomfortable with the text, and began tearing it apart, leaving a small fraction of the original.

Her quiet plan to wrest the speech away and make it her own set in motion the most embarrassing moment of the convention: word-for-word repetition of phrases and borrowed themes from Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic convention eight years ago.

George W. Bush dances while mourners grieve Dallas police officers

Source: 9news.com.au

Eyebrows have been raised after former US President George W. Bush swayed and danced a merry jig onstage during a memorial service for five Dallas police officers killed last week.

Bush seemed out of tune with the gathering, smiling broadly and rocking back and forth while a choir sang The Battle Hymn of the Republic, a popular US patriotic anthem.

The former president held hands with wife Barbara and first lady Michelle Obama in a line of otherwise solemn mourners, and both appeared unsettled and uncomfortable by Bush's behaviour.

Predictably, Twitter users were quick to question what Bush was up to, and whether his behaviour was inappropriate.

Meds can be hard to adjust.
