    "I only hire the best people"


    Campaign chairman Paul Manafort resigned from Donald Trump's team Friday, less than a week after the candidate reshuffled his staff and amid news reports about Manafort's past political activity for pro-Russian elements in Ukraine.

    “This morning Paul Manafort offered, and I accepted, his resignation from the campaign," Trump said in a statement. "I am very appreciative for his great work in helping to get us where we are today, and in particular his work guiding us through the delegate and convention process."

    Trump added that "Paul is a true professional and I wish him the greatest success.”

    Manafort deputy Rick Gates is also resigning.

    Earlier this week, Trump brought on two new top campaign officials in a move largely seen as a sidelining of Manafort.

    right cause there are not pages and pages of it. but why do you deny what your extra special candidate has done? why why why do you never really talk about it?

    Meanwhile, Hillary is nowhere to be found. She's probably getting medicated so that she can barely make it up a ****ing flight of stairs!!

    This is called deflection. The thread is about Manafort and his resigning. But but but the other candidate...

    Why hold rallies when all you need to do is let Trump speak?

    post 5 ask about russian ties & deeds, Clinton got millions to the foundation after the russian uranium deal, so where is the deflection?
    got to agree there, trump is his worst enemy.

    no trump is your boy and you know it but you don't want to look like a looser if you actually said t. you have defended him on everything you two are like so close. maybe you can share a burrito or taco salad with him.

    Agree on the 2nd point. Post #5 is about Manafort and his connection. It's not about Clinton. Just own it - you were deflecting to take a shot at Clinton.

    So last night we got Trump's Kellyanne pitch to African Americans. When are we going to get the Kellyanne pitch to women? I'm sure her stint working for Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin will go over well.

    saw part of it on the news, how the **** does trump get away with being so vague? " if AA's vote for me, it's going to be great for them" or some stupid crap like that...

    probably hard to say. some of them have had regional campaign managers too.

    Place bets on these characters being Trump's final picks? I pass.

    The Times piece on Manafort's resignation said Rick Gates was staying. Gray lady having trouble keeping up or has the deputy actually not also resigned? Maybe there's an update coming. Same piece suggests Jared Kushner is who may have pulled the plug on Manaford, not liking the undertow of all the stuff in the media about the Russian ties.

    He's been talking about it for a while tbh.. mainly that illegal alien criminals are taking away many low-waged jobs that would otherwise go to blacks, especially youths.

    I like that Trump is changing things up. It's how a company works. If you hire someone, and they don't deliver, their either resign or get fired.

    That rarely happens in the public (parasitic) sector. How many useless gov agencies have been eliminated?
