Thanks to Donald Trump the RNC is seeing a flood of staffers leaving the organization.

So go already. Who needs you?
Courtesy of Politico: 

The Republican National Committee has seen a spate of departures in recent months related to its embrace of Donald Trump, whom some former staffers felt uncomfortable supporting. 

In recent months, deputy press secretary James Hewitt, spokesman Fred Brown, director of Hispanic media Ruth Guerra, and research analysts Lars Trautman and Colin Spence have all left the RNC with Trump as one of the reasons for their resignations, according to sources familiar with their decisions. At least three other staff members have also left the RNC with opposition to Trump as a contributing factor, according to multiple sources. 

In total, at least 11 staffers have left the RNC since March, although not all of the departures were related to Trump. 

In interviews, others cited familiar reasons for their resistance to the nominee – that they couldn’t work to help elect a man they thought was not qualified to be president; that Trump’s insensitive statements turned them against him; that he wasn’t conservative enough. Some also said they worried about the stain that working to elect Trump could have on their resume. 

So the remaining RNC staffers with any integrity are now heading for the door, just more great news for the Republican party. 

Remember those rumors early on that Doanld Trump was a Democratic plant chosen to help destroy the Republican party?

Yeah, well if I were a Republican I might be seriously reconsidering that conspiracy theory.

    Those so called "staffers" are really just a bunch of low energy losers. Believe me. Many people are saying that the RNC is much better off with out them. There may be more low energy losers that will also need to go. It's something we're going to look into. Believe me.

      "inviting Trump to Manila so that the two could engage in a boxing match, ‘man to man.’"Addressing Trump directly, Duterte said, “If you are too scared to come to Manila, I can come meet you in Las Vegas, at the Trump Towers or at the MGM Grand Arena.” Ultimate beatdown drumpf!

      I wouldn't be so quick to defend Duterte. He is also a homophobic dictator that has outright stated he wants to kill drug dealers without due process (which means you could be accused but not guilty) and already has killed.

      That said, I don't blame him for banning Trump.

    Right after Trump cinched the nomination, it was reported that the RNC would be running Trump's campaign. This is the first time I can recall the candidate not running his own campaign.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/donald-trump-outsources-campaign-operations-to-rnc/article/2592453

    Trump cannot be bothered with little details like actually running a campaign. So this exodus from the RNC hits Trump much harder than it would other candidates.

      He doesn't know how to run a campaign and doesn't have the staff or the money to do so. Not to mention he is totally clueless as how to run one. So he's just doing the same stuff he did during the primaries.

      The only thing the RNC can really do is cut off his money and deny him staffing. That's what they're doing. And that's why he'll lose.

      And he'll never understand why.

      He has no clue what the RNC does to run his campaign so won't miss them when they're gone. Except that he won't be constantly getting all those calls complaining about something or other and threatening him to stop whatever and do this instead.

    Trump is neither a Republican nor a Democrat.

    He's a Trumpican.

    He also doesn't have the brains to be a plant. He has the brains OF a plant. He could never come up with some sort of devious plan to destroy the GOP.

    He is exactly what you see. A shallow, spoiled bully, vindictive, man-baby liar. There is no depth to the man. There is no reflection or sense of self.

    He is a sociopathic narcissist. He's a vile bloviating shell.

    He is a bottomless lagoon of fetid, rancid fecal matter.

    "Remember those rumors early on that Doanld Trump was a Democratic plant chosen to help destroy the Republican party?"

    LOL. Sadly, that makes perfect sense. Let's take some billionaire of the Dem persuasion. He knows Trump is going broke, so he offers (and Trump accepts) $xx million to ensure a Dem win (president and down ballot). Rather than spending that money on conventional campaign expenses, which might total way more and not yield the effect of wrecking the GOP.

    Brilliant, if true. Makes sense to me. It sure is working, whether funded by a Dem or not. But it has always seemed v v likely that Trump is desperate for money and expected his shenanigans to get it for him, so he does not have to go broke in plain sight. So embarrassing.

      While that would make a great made for tv movie, Trump just isn't mentally capable of this.

      If you examine Trump's life what you see is what you get. He is shallow and simple. This campaign behavior is consistent with his personality.

      He isn't a clever Democratic mole working to destroy the GOP from within. He's simply a sociopathic narcissist. An egocentric bully that decided he needs to be president to feed his media whore fix.

    "In 2010, SarahPAC, the political action committee created by the former Alaska governor to help elect conservative candidates across the U.S., ran an ominous graphic online that depicted crosshairs over the districts of House Democrats who had supported President Obama’s Affordable Care Act and listed the names of the lawmakers.

    The ad — which was heavily criticized for its violent imagery — included a crosshairs over the district of then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

    And on Jan. 8, 2011, Giffords, as well as 18 others, was shot by a mentally ill Arizona man outside a Tucson grocery store, where she was holding a small constituent meeting.

    Six people died in the tragic shooting, and Giffords, who was critically injured after being shot in the head, only survived after hours of emergency surgery, months of intensive medical care and years of excruciating of rehabilitation.
    Palin, whose PAC had maintained the graphic was figurative in the months after the shooting, did not respond to multiple requests for comment by the Daily News Wednesday, amid the renewed interest in such violently provocative — and potentially inciting — political rhetoric."

    Trump: If I Can’t Win by Calling Obama the Founder of ISIS, Then I Don’t Want to Win


    ....Trump was then asked how he thought such rhetoric would play in battleground states.
    “Whatever it is, it is,” Trump said. “I’m a truth teller. All I do is tell the truth. And if at the end of 90 days, I’ve fallen short … it’s OK. I go back to a very good way of life.”

    Trump reiterated this sentiment later in the interview, when he was asked how he planned to catch up with Clinton in the polls.

    “I just keep doing the same thing I’m doing right now,” Trump said. “And at the end, it’s either going to work or I’m going to have a very, very nice long vacation.”.....

      In their attempts to rile up anti-Hillary sentiment, too often it is directed back at Trump with whatever outrageous thing he says.

      Sure, he implied Hillary should be assassinated but then followed it with accusing Obama of founding Isis. He moved the target off Hillary and on to Obama. Sure he tried to include Hillary but that wasn't very successful. He's done this over and over.

      If it weren't for the money and the campaign, he would be a crazy who would be taken to the nearest mental facility for a 72 hour hold for observation. And he'd fail.
