Defector From Trumpistan

Stephanie Cegiblski, a former Trump strategist, tells all.

…Trump never intended to be the candidate. But his pride is too out of control to stop him now.

You can give Trump the biggest gift possible if you are a Trump supporter: stop supporting him.

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.

And if you are one of the disaffected voters — one of the silent majority like me — who wanted a candidate who could be your voice, I want to speak directly to you as one of his biggest advocates and supporters.

He is not that voice. He is not your voice. He is only Trump’s voice.

Trump is about Trump. Not one of his many wives. Not one of his many “pieces of ass.” He is, at heart, a self-preservationist.

Read the whole thing.  This shameless self-promoter is about to become the Republican nominee for President of the United States.

    • Nearly a half-century of supposedly-enlightened selfishness – Prosperity Gospel, single-issue politicking, lauding “job creators”, etc – has done quite a job on the US electorate. “What’s in it for me” has become a driving political force. The GOP had done its damnedest to kill any sense of community: Trump for pResident is the result. It’s doubtful Trump’s supporters care that he’s not in it for them: they’re too invested in The Blessed Individual to believe that what Trump wants isn’t good for them as well.

      Thatcher’s oft-misused quote (“[Y]ou know, there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families.”) is coming back to haunt God’s Own Party – with a vengeance.

  2. He doesn’t want the White House.

    USUALLY, that’s a sign that he’d be a good person for the office. In this case, though,….
