Trump Threatens to Sue His Own Campaign Manager Over Bad Poll Numbers

2 min read
President Donald Trump held a meeting at the White House with several lawmakers to talk about gun control. At the roundtable, Trump bashed the officers in Florida who apparently failed to stop Nikolas Cruz from killing 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The Republican, who previously stated he would have rushed to the school to save the students, said law enforcers should have taken the “shooter’s guns away whether they had the right or not.”

CNN just posted a story about yet another Trumpertantrum, as the Great Orange Shitgibbet goes increasingly and noisily and totally insane:

Trump erupts at campaign manager as reelection stress overflows

As he huddled with advisers on Friday evening, President Donald Trump was still fuming over his sliding poll numbers and the onslaught of criticism he was facing for suggesting a day earlier that ingesting disinfectant might prove effective against coronavirus.

Within moments, the President was shouting — not at the aides in the room, but into the phone — at his campaign manager Brad Parscale, three people familiar with the matter told CNN. Shifting the blame away from himself, Trump berated Parscale for a recent spate of damaging poll numbers, even at one point threatening to sue Parscale. It’s not clear how serious the President’s threat of a lawsuit was. [emphasis added]

One anonymous source says Trump knows he done wrong:

“He’s p*ssed because he knows he messed up in those briefings,” one Republican close to the White House said of Trump lashing out.

Or maybe not:

Trump has complained to aides that his restricted travel has hurt his numbers, not the briefings.

Of course. No way it could have been the bleach. Any stable genius can see that!

In the meantime, look for an increasingly desperate Trump to start flailing even more. Since it couldn’t possibly be the bleach brief or other unmentionables, Trump will not be able to resist climbing right back up on that podium and shooting his foot while it’s in his mouth.

Government by toddler tantrum.
