Trump Campaign Hiring Swamp Creatures En Masse, Sabotaging POTUS

The establishment GOP has infiltrated Trump’s 2020 campaign.

A roundup of 2020 Trump campaign employees shows that President Donald J. Trump is being swamped, evidenced by the fact most of the recent hires are veterans of the establishment GOP Republican National Committee and the Republican Governor’s Association.

Tim Murtaugh, a veteran of the RGA, was hired in February as the Director of Communications for 2020 campaign. He left his job as the Director of Communications at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Federal agencies like the USDA are notoriously filled with anti-Trumpers and holdovers from the Obama administration.

Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale hired veteran GOP strategist Chris Carr in 2018 to lead the midterm charge. We all saw how that played out. Carr has a long history working inside the GOP establishment, working for the RNC in both 2016 and 2012, as well as the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Kevin Madden, a member of the 2012 failed presidential campaign of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), is praising Trump’s strategy, which is not exactly positive sign for those hoping Trump will buck the establishment.

“The difference between an insurgent, anti-establishment campaign and the reelection campaign of a sitting president is enormous,” he told BuzzFeed. “It’s like the difference between a pirate ship and a oceanliner. “The challenge in 2016 was convincing campaign talent that Trump was a real candidate who would see the effort all the way through.”

Madden is also the former press secretary for king of the RINO’s, John Boehner, and said he would never vote for Trump. Good to know that he is pleased with the direction of Trump’s 2020 campaign.

The campaign has also hired Erin Perrine, former press secretary for Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who once claimed that Russian President Validmir Putin was paying Trump. McCarthy has unsuccessfully attempted to rebrand himself to cater to Trump’s populist base.

The communications team also brought on Matt Wolking as Deputy Director. Wolking held communications roles for Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

The hires from inside the GOP establishment are a stark contrast from Trump’s 2016 campaign, which was run mostly by political outsider Stephen K. Bannon, formerly of Breitbart News. If the GOP insiders steer Trump towards the establishment and away from the American people who elected him, it could spell doom for his 2020 operation.

Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President

Tell it like it is, Barack!

Published

on

Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.

Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.

Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.

At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:

When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win. 

“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter. 

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
