The replacement of Mr. Parscale with Mr. Stepien, who had served as deputy campaign manager, comes as the president has struggled in public and private polling.www.nytimes.com
“Brad Parscale, who has been with me for a very long time and has led our tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a senior adviser to the campaign. Both were heavily involved in our historic 2016 win, and I look forward to having a big and very important second win together.”
Trump didn't really "fire" Parscale. He just added another cook, thereby increasing the chances of spoiling the broth.Mr. Miller and Mr. Stepien have been working closely with another 2016 veteran, Hope Hicks, a senior adviser to Mr. Trump in the White House who handles his schedule. Another veteran of 2016 whom Mr. Trump likes, Susie Wiles, a Florida-based Republican operative, was recently brought back to the campaign.
A person familiar with the planning said there might still be another addition to the team, such as a campaign chairman.
We could make a game of the worst Republican women he could choose for the laughs.

Ivanka is right there, you guys.It would continue with Sarah Palin.
I think she was reasonable to be on the short list but then she wasn't vetted properly. Proper vetting probably would have highlighted her weaknesses and allowed McCain to pick someone else.FWIW, Palin looks like a very bad pick in hindsight, but she was a (somewhat successful?) governor and it wasn't entirely unjustifiable.

I was just being silly after I saw caseyedwards mention "Kasich". Choosing a republican woman is WAY farther out there. I "agree" with the bad choices. You forgot Kellyanne Conway. Or maybe one of the female lying heads from fox? I can't think of any names right now.I think he could select a Pub but I think he wants to select a woman. Outside of Condoleeza who is there? It will be a Dem.

The Trump administration as a whole hasn't shown much interest in protecting such rights as the right to vote, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, or freedom of the people to assemble peacefully either, and it certainly hasn't been pushing these rights in its dealings with Russia, China, North Korea, or Saudi Arabia, to name just four other countries.Mike Pompeo has sought to redefine the US approach to human rights by giving preference to private property and religious freedom as the foremost “unalienable rights” laid down by America’s Founding Fathers.
Pompeo, launching a draft report by a Commission on Unalienable Rights he established a year ago, also claimed that a proliferation of human rights asserted by different US and international institutions had the effect of diluting those rights he viewed as the most important.
“Many are worth defending in light of our founding; others aren’t,” Pompeo said at a launch ceremony in Philadelphia. He did not specify which rights he thought were superfluous, but the state department during his tenure has been aggressive in opposing references to reproductive and gender rights in UN and other multilateral documents.
In the landmark United States Supreme Court case of Gideon v. Wainwright, 372 U.S. 335 (1963), the Supreme Court decided that indigent defendants have a constitutional right to be represented by an attorney, at no charge, in state criminal cases. The term "civil Gideon" refers to a growing national movement that has developed to explore strategies to provide legal counsel, as a matter of right and at public expense, to low-income persons in civil legal proceedings where basic human needs are at stake, such as those involving shelter, sustenance, safety, health or child custody.
Pompeo does have a J.D. from Harvard, where he was on the law review.The right to property is a fundamental right according to Pompeo? Does that mean he's in favor of civil Gideon? Does he know what Civil Gideon is?

One would think that he would be versed in the full implications of what he was saying before he called the right to property a fundamental and unalienable right, so perhaps so. I wonder if any political reporters who lurk here (There must be some, no?) will press him on this.
He and Trump are desperately trying shore up the hardcore white religious part of their base because they've lost the Independent and moderate GOP votes. Wave religious freedom around with they'll take your guns and kill all the unborn babies and hope some of them will still vote for you. And that their candidate will not do something so totally outrageous on Twitter that even the most die hard will find that lump too hard to swallow. But, then they'd have to put him in a closet somewhere with no access to the Internet.
The next POTUS will spend the first year undoing all the Exec orders of this administration before they can even focus on their own agenda.
I know I'm negative about the election, but with the dictator type actions in the last week (ie taking control of ********* data, the actions in Portland, the use of the Rose Garden for campaign speeches, trying to take control of schools, etc), I am convinced the "election" will be a farce. The "election" will have a reported 99% vote win for Trump.
