What could account for Donald Trump’s continuing decline in the polls? Could it have been his bigoted denigration of U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel and all Latino judges as not being capable of fairly acting as a judge in any case against him?
Could it have been his knee jerk (and various other “jerk”) reaction to the Orlando mass shooting by congratulating himself on it then accusing President Obama of possibly being an ally of the killer and terrorists seeking to kill innocent Americans?
Maybe it was the damning details about what a fraud and con man scheme his Trump University was?
Or Republican politicians all around the country announcing they won’t endorse or vote for him?
Perhaps all the corporations backing out of sponsoring the Republican National Convention because of Trump or all the wealthy donors refusing to contribute to his campaign?
Growing talk and organization among delegates to change the convention rules to prevent Trump from receiving the nomination?
Apparently, Trump might argue that the real problem was his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski so he fired him.
Lewandowski, known for his bullying of reporters and offensive treatment of others would seem to be Trump’s perfect echo, well known for his resistance to any who would suggest that Trump should tone things down for the general election with his cliche, “Let Trump be Trump” statements and mentality.
It really is a win-win for both sides to let Trump be Trump. For his supporters and opponents, Trump laying out what an ignorant, lying bigot he is was energizing.
Instead, the RNC and establishment Republicans have been lobbying Trump to change his campaign persona into a “more presidential” one, to go by a script and stop saying incendiary things. In other words, they want Trump to pull a bigger con on the American public than he has been, deceiving voters into thinking he’s not the sociopath he really is.
With Lewandowski gone, the leader of the opposing camp within the Trump campaign who will happily cooperate with the GOP’s wishes to put lipstick on the Trump pig, professional scum bucket Paul Manafort, wins control of Trump’s campaign operations
Who is Paul Manafort and why have I already been sued for defamation by The Scum Bucket Association of America for comparing them to Paul Manafort?
Here are the names of some of the people from Manafort’s unsavory lobbying career:
- Philippine kleptocrat and de facto dictator, Ferdinand Marcos
- Somalian dictator and torturer, Mohamed Siad Barre
- Zaire authoritarian tyrant, Mobutu Sese Seko
- Corrupt, bribe paying French Prime Minister Edouard Balladur
- Pakistan’s Inter-Service Intelligence agency’s false flag operation, KAC
- Disastrous Ukranian president and Putin stooge, Viktor Yanukovych
According to Wikipedia:
His firm also lobbied on behalf of the governments of the Dominican Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Kenya (between $660-750,000 yearly 1991 and 1993), and Nigeria ($1 million in 1991). These activities led Manafort’s firm to be listed amongst the top five lobbying firms receiving money from human-rights abusing regimes in the report “The Torturer’s Lobby.”
And this is the man now in charge of putting lipstick on the Trumpian pig. This hired gun for murderous dictators, the evil and the corrupt. This is who will right the Trump ship that Lewandowski is blamed for sailing onto an iceberg? Or will he just be re-arranging the deck chairs to spell “Trump”?
As the old saying goes, you can’t put toothpaste back in the tube. Trump has squeezed his inner ugliness out all over the MSM and Manafort may happily collect big checks for trying to put it back in the tube but that isn’t going to happen.
You can’t unring a bell that has both repulsed Democrats and panicked Republicans. In partnership with the GOP, Manafort can try to deceptively repackage Trump as he has with other tyrannical and criminal sorts but no matter how thick you lay on the lipstick, a pig still smells like a pig.
