The Most Tremendous Reelection Campaign in American History Ever

Inside the chaotic, desperate, last-minute Trump 2020 reboot.

Essentially everyone is an idiot, but this paragraph really sets up what follows:

Parscale’s value, as some saw it, lay not in what he could do for the campaign but in what he could do for Kushner. “Brad was willing to do whatever Jared said and keep quiet about it. Brad was willing to get yelled at by the president and not say to the president, ‘Well, actually, this was Jared’s decision,’ ” the first senior White House official said. “And Jared got to rule from afar because Brad would do whatever he said. In return, Brad made a fuck-ton of money and got to live by the pool in Florida. It was almost like this weird mutual partnership, whether they knew it or not.”

So good.

UPDATE 1: This paragraph explains so much:

Stevens is a veteran of Republican presidential campaigns whose latest book, It Was All a Lie, is about his newfound realization — at 67 years old — that his life’s work was a mistake. As he sees it, Trump has a “management philosophy” that has guided him from the Trump Organization to the 2016 campaign to the White House and now to the campaign for reelection. “What Trump does is take people who are mediocre talent at best, who know they could never have the position they have if it were not for Trump, and it creates this instant loyalty to Trump. When you look at Trumpworld, it’s all these people who weren’t involved in presidential races, and it wasn’t because they didn’t want to be; it was because nobody would hire them. It’s not like Steve Bannon woke up one day and said, ‘I think I’d like to get involved in campaigns!’ Or Corey Lewandowski, all of these people. It’s how you end up with Brad Parscale. Top professionals won’t work for you.”

Lord love a duck – that’s the whole game, right there.

  1. I think it’s time we updated that old “Animal House” quote:

    “You fucked up. You trusted us Jared.”

  2. Also, I find it truly astonishing that any modern-day political campaign would adopt the Death Star as an intimidation thing, because even Boomers know that the Death Star got blowed up real good.

    Just the level of unawareness demonstrated that tweet would have been astonishing for a State Representative campaign from West Dumbfuckistan, but on a national-scale presidential campaign?? It stuns me every day anew, how grossly and shambolically incompetent the Trump Regime has been; and how much damage it’s done to this country in spite of that.

    So…….does a serious reboot such as this one come with new bootstraps? Because if the old ones are even a bit worn out, they could snap, if pulled on too tightly, and there goes your whole approach to life.

    They knew. These chuckleheads may not know much about epidemiology, supply chains, the Middle East, government reform, criminal justice reform, or presidential campaigns, but they know grifting. Cheap, obvious, unsubtle grifting.

    Oooohhhh, so THAT’s how you bankrupt a casino or a superpower or a political party. Wouldn’t have thunk of it myself. I guess it takes a super jenius.

    But in addition to all the above, you gotta mash the lever on the back of the Hungry Hippo faster/harder than anyone else at table.

    Reminds me of Saddam Hussein. He didn’t just hire all incompetents; he executed everyone that showed competency. How is that plan supposed to end well?
