Still coming in, not really any news on this at the moment but surely it’ll get the wondering minds whirling about.

Shall we start placing bets? Does Trump smell too bad? Was his cheesy grin just too much? Did Trump not pay them? Was Trump getting too much bad PR?



The campaign manager for presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is to leave his job, US media report.

A campaign spokeswoman, quoted by the New York Times, said they were grateful to Corey Lewandowski "for his hard work and dedication".

The exact reason for Mr Lewandowski's departure is not yet clear.

The Times said the campaign was planning adjustments to the needs of the general election campaign.

More on this here... www.theguardian.com...


Lewandowski had become an increasingly controversial figure after being charged with committing misdemeanor battery against a female reporter for conservative news site Breitbart.com.

Oh, okay... maybe he deserves no place in society let alone a presidential campaign.

Looks like he was fired.

www.nytimes.com...

Two people briefed on the move said that Mr. Lewandowski was let go. The campaign manager was seen as having a hostile relationship with many members of the national press corps that covers Mr. Trump, and many officials at the Republican National Committee had strained relationships with him.

Lewandowski had become an increasingly controversial figure after being charged with committing misdemeanor battery against a female reporter for conservative news site Breitbart.com. In a separate incident, Lewandowski accosted a protester in a crowd at a rally. Despite Trump’s willingness to unabashedly stand by Lewandowski, the candidate’s growing issues with delegate selection and preparing for a contested convention have put Lewandowski increasingly in the line of fire. In an interview on Friday, Manafort further asserted his independence from Lewandowski, saying: “I work directly for the boss.”

A shake-up in his campaign is definitely called for. It's failing as it is... I'm curious to find out if Corey Lewandowski jumped from a sinking ship or was booted out... Interesting.

I guess that answers my question. Probably a good move by the campaign.

Yes. All over the news here too. I just didn't feel like composing an opening post about it. Thanks.

You can apply the same description to His Orangeness as well.

It's about time. This guy has been poison and a real tool for a while, but "birds of a feather..." as they say.

I'm pretty sure he was in conflict with other people in the campaign, like Manifort.

Charges were dropped. There was a little scandal about it you should look into, at least for humor's sake. The Trump critics had a field-day with it. Turns out it was as specious as everything else they've tried. It was a good indication of the extent to which some are willing to go, even sacrificing their dignity in the process.

Reportedly there will be a press release later. Well. Im sure there will be by Trump or his campaign.

I expect a tweet where Trump congratulates himself first then announces why he fired him.

It's not like Trump's going forward without a campaign manager.

Lewandowski did his job and got him this far. I expect Lewandowski will get a nice fat check or a place in Trumps administration that pays handsomely ... maybe both.

It's hilarious watching the left flog themselves over any thought of Trump.

They definitely do that...

This story may explain some of it... Hicks may be going soon, too... Trump is a business man. He knows he has to take some drastic action. I admit, I'd love to see him just stall out, but this will make things more interesting.

Trump Does Not Have a Campaign



Making things difficult is the ongoing rivalry between Trump’s top adviser Paul Manafort, who was brought in to professionalize the campaign in March, and longtime staff like campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and press secretary Hope Hicks, who is essentially the lone media contact for reporters.

While Manafort handles every aspect of the campaign outside of travel and communications, per the source, Lewandowski and Hicks actually join Trump on the road and have his ear on a moment-to-moment basis. The source described the two as determined to block Trump from voices that might undermine their control, which has made hiring new senior staffers difficult despite the obvious need.

The conflict came to a head in California last week, where Manafort had lined up a raft of endorsements from local supporters ahead of Trump’s tour of the state – but no press releases went out announcing the news. Lewandowski and Hicks, the source said, vetoed draft after draft.

"Flog" themselves? Is that the word you meant to use? Because the left is not "flogging" themselves over Trump.

Time for an upgrade just like the DNC chair last week. He worked well for a while but the stakes are getting higher. End of the day, more free press and from his book, does not matter if it's bad. Get the free press and people thinking all is lost. Then bring in someone fresh and people start talking about that person as better. Long long way to go. This will be week to week with huge ups and down for both candidates. Just getting started.

Both parties shaking things up. Lewandowski dismissed this week, Debbie Wasserman Schultz dismissed as DNC chair last week. I guess both parties are positioning themselves for the haul from now till November.

There was too much infighting because no one wanted to do the back scrubbing at bath time.

More like “making fun of” I think, certainly in my case.

I doubt it. Trump doesn't like to pay his employees.
