Stephanie Cegielski, a strategist and communications specialist, says she was brought in to run the Make America Great Again Super PAC last summer, but ultimately came to realize what everyone who hasn’t fallen under the Trump spell could sniff from the very beginning: Trump is wholly unprepared to be president and is only out for himself.
Even Trump's most trusted advisors didn’t expect him to fare this well … the goal was to get The Donald to poll in double digits and come in second in delegate count. That was it. The Trump camp would have been satisfied to see him polling at 12% and taking second place to a candidate who might hold 50%. His candidacy was a protest candidacy … And I am now taking full responsibility for helping create this monster — and reaching out directly to those voters who, like me, wanted Trump to be the real deal …
He doesn’t want the White House. He just wants to be able to say that he could have run the White House. He’s achieved that already and then some. If there is any question, take it from someone who was recruited to help the candidate succeed, and initially very much wanted him to do so. The hard truth is: Trump only cares about Trump.
She knows nothing about Mr. Trump or the campaign and her disingenuous and factually inaccurate statements in no way resemble any shred of truth. This is yet another desperate person looking for their fifteen minutes. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump is running for President because he is the only one who will Make America Great Again.
And as part of that support, in October, I supported the internal decision to close the Super PAC in order to position him as the quintessential non-politician. I still supported him with great passion after that. The decision to close the Super PAC was part of that devotion to his message of outsider change.
When there was a tweet that contained an error, he would blame it on an intern; when there was a photo containing a World War II Nazi Germany background, he would blame it on an intern; when he answered questions in an overtly controversial fashion, he would claim that he did not properly hear the question. He refused to take responsibility for his actions while frequently demanding apologies from others.

I found her testimony chilling, and what one would expect to hear from a cult member who has managed to pull free of the talons of the cult leader. Seen in this light it is easy to explain why it took her so long.

Oh yeah, it's like those horrible made-for-tv movies on the SyFy channel. If you watch for more than 10 minutes, you can't turn them off...you're "invested" now, and even though you know the movie is horrible, you keep watching out of sick fascination at how horrible the movie is.
I've been totally guilty of that a bunch of times!

IMO this is sour grapes, combined with a desire to get her 15 minutes. She states that she still supported him after the PAC, but her Twitter tells a different story. She started criticizing him almost immediately after the PAC shut down. I wonder if the GOP "encouraged" this story in their bid to stop Trump. In any event, she seems to be enjoying the attention.
