Murtaugh

Because everyone who works for Trump has to be * very * nervous now

As CNN’s Kaitlan Collins said Monday on the situation of the President:

“Despite allegations that he is not angry, many people have said that Trump has been something since returning from Talsa. He has raised questions about the future of his campaign manager, but others have said his job is not just in jeopardy. Anyone, including WH’s assistants, could have been fired depending on the coverage. “

Which controls. Because with about 6,200 people in an arena with a capacity of more than 19,000 – and after Trump wrote on Twitter that there were 1 million RSVP – it was clear from Trump’s body language when he fell back into the White House from Oklahoma early in the morning. Sunday that he was frustrated, frustrated and angry.
Mean, check it yourself. Does that sound like a triumphant leader?

And we also know that Trump is not blaming himself for many things.

After suggesting that injecting or swallowing disinfectants would fight coronavirus, Trump was asked in April if he had taken any responsibility for an increase in people doing just that. “No, no,” he replied.
One month ago, Trump was asked if the delay in the corona tests was in any way, shaping or shaping his mistake. “No, I do not take any responsibility,” he said.
In the same press conference, Trump was also asked if he was responsible for disbanding the pandemic office. The President described it as “a bad question” (it wasn’t) before adding: “When you say ‘me’, I didn’t. We have a group of people [in the administration]. But I might ask Tony about it, because I don’t know anything about it. “” “Tony” is Dr. Anthony Faucchi, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.)
Repeatedly during his presidency, Trump has made it clear that he wants all faith when anything, even his administration, goes wrong and none of the blame goes wrong. (Name Michael Scott’s management theory.) He will always find someone to blame when something goes wrong. But that person will never be the same.

So, do the math: Little crowd + Trump’s love for scapegoat = Big problem for anyone with his fingerprints on this Rally of Talsa.

At the top of the list is Trump 2020 campaign director Brad Parscale.

As Sarah Westwood and CNN’s Jim Acosta reported on Sunday night:

“Ivanka Trump and Jared Kouchner are” pissed “at campaign manager Brad Parskale for his predictions of a much larger crowd than it turned out at the Talsa rally on Saturday night, according to a Trump campaign source. camp has focused on Parscale, some of whom have already been skeptical. But some donors and allies are feeling the devastation of the rally – in which the campaign has decided to inflate expectations for rally enthusiasm instead of managing them rationally. in a sudden relief from the existing management problems in the campaign, the individual said. “

Trumpology students know that when Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, activate you, you are in deep trouble. (Trump’s original campaign director, Corey Lewandowski, was fired after Ivanka and Jared were activated.)
And Parscale has always been a somewhat controversial choice to campaign for a re-elected president who has never had this kind of responsibility before. He served as the chief digital strategist for the Trump 2016 campaign, but before that he had very little political experience. He did work for Trump’s company – website creation, digital marketing and sales – for several years before that, according to The Washington Post.
In addition, the history of Trump’s campaign managers bears a striking resemblance to its history Drummer of the spine. In the 2016 campaign, Lewandowski gave his place to Paul Manafort (remember him!) Who gave his place to Kellyanne Conway. And in all of this, there were rumors that Kushner or Ivanka (or both) were the real brains behind the operation. Or that Trump himself was effectively managing his own campaign, making all the important calls about what they were saying and doing.

Parscale is without a doubt the most likely target of Trump’s anger. But back to Kaitlan’s tweet – this place in particular: “Anyone, including WH assistants, could be fired depending on coverage.”

The key – and revealing – is “depending on the coverage.” Trump is something, yes. But it also watches cable TV. And receive calls. And making calls. And trying to figure out – out of all this – who is blaming “them” for destroying the Tulsa rally. This, as well as his own sense, will determine who is fired.

Because, again, Trump has to do with perception: It’s not about who’s to blame, it’s that the crowd didn’t respond to the ad campaign over the weekend. (In fact, there is no way a person can be blamed.) It’s about who the media, his friends and the big party donors are blaming. This is the person Trump will blame.

On Monday afternoon, those close to the White House insisted that Parscale’s job was not at stake. Which can be true! But it’s also hard to imagine that the Suspicious Goat will allow such public embarrassment, as Talsa’s rally will go unpunished. It is not in his nature.
