The answer is obvious from my photo. They made money selling something harmful to your health. They were shills for a product that even before the Surgeon General’s report when I was a kid were called cancer sticks and coffin nails.
Nobody was interviewing the Hollywood stars and sports celebrities asking them how they could possibly advertise products that years down the road would be killing millions of people.
Even Joy Reid who is probably the best at exposing the lies of her Trump surrogate guests handles them with the respect due to any spokesperson for a candidate for president.
I bet she wishes that off camera she could ask them how they hell they can support a candidate like Trump. No doubt they have learned from the Access Hollywood video that they always have to assume there’s a hot mike, so they won’t say what they really feel.
My hunch is that some of them are doing it both for the money and because they enjoy the limelight. Others may be true believers. With the exception of Conway who has a job to go back to, they also know they are auditioning for Fox News and whatever form Trump TV is going to take.
The only network I watch is MSNBC, so I only get to see a few Trump surrogates. I think his campaign only picked those who would be most adept at parrying the logic bombs from MSNBC hosts.
Who are the surrogates who make your skin crawl the most?
