Donald Trump already filled the nonexistent title of campaign CEO with the head of Breitbart “News,” but no one knows what that role involves. From the evidence? Not much. Then there’s the person with the title of campaign manager, but she’s way too actually engaged in raising her TV Q rather than managing anything. So what to do about the pesky need to actually organize a thing or three? Doesn’t Trump actually need someone who does something on his staff?
Time to hire a deputy campaign manager.
David N. Bossie, the veteran conservative operative who has investigated the Clintons for more than two decades, has been named Donald Trump’s deputy campaign manager.
Twenty years of conducting Clinton witch hunts? Sure, that sounds like exactly the role that was going unfilled at Trump Co. What is his task again?
… crafting attacks against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, mining past controversies involving her and former president Bill Clinton, and cultivating Trump’s bond with conservative activists.
So not managing anything. Not handling issues for state offices. What’s Bossie’s experience in the critical making up sh*t about Hillary industry?
Bossie lead the Citizens United lawsuit that culminated in a landmark US Supreme Court decision in 2010 that allowed super PACs, nonprofits and corporations to make unlimited contributions to political campaigns.
Just a reminder: the whole reason for the existence of Citizens United was to create anti-Hillary propaganda.
Donald Trump can talk all he wants about politicians being owned by big money donors. He just hired the guy who made that possible.
Since the national media seems to do a find job of ginning up fake Clinton scandals all on their own, what’s the other reason Bossie is needed?
He is a friend of Bannon and Conway whose political projects have often overlapped with his own. He is close to the secretive Mercer family, who have funded his organizations and been major backers of Trump’s candidacy.
That leaves three Mercer allies -- Bannon, Conway and Bossie -- atop the Trump campaign. Hedge-fund investor Robert L. Mercer and his daughter, Rebekah, were key players in urging Trump to reshuffle his campaign this summer.
But wait. No one owns Donald Trump! Certainly not a secretive Wall Street hedge fund investor who is behind every single top-level person on his campaign as well as a Donald Trump SuperPAC, Breitbart.com, the Heritage Foundation, and the Cato Institute.
Hillary Clinton wants to reverse Citizens United. Donald Trump? He works for them.
