It looks like Donald Trump and Roger Ailes are no longer besties.

Courtesy of Vanity Fair:  

Roger Ailes. The former Fox News boss had reportedly served as an advisor to Trump throughout the campaign. He was said to have played a particularly important role as of late, helping him prepare for the presidential debates.

That's all changed now, according to Sherman and Vanity Fair contributing editor Sarah Ellison. The reason for the fallout depends on who you ask. 

“Ailes’s camp said Ailes learned that Trump couldn’t focus—surprise, surprise—and that advising him was a waste of time,” Sherman said. “These debate prep sessions weren’t going anywhere.”

On the Trump side, Ellison said the story is different: “Even for the second debate, Ailes kept going off on tangents and talking about his war stories while he was supposed to be prepping Trump.”

Gee, two well known liars with different stories.

May have to flip a coin to decide who to believe in this one, but what does not seem to be in dispute is the fact that these two monstrous egos could not coexist in the same space.

I can only imagine how frustrating it was for Roger Ailes, who is used to holding up hoops for his employees to jump through, to work with a candidate who never listens to anybody and who seems determined to drive his campaign over a cliff.

On the plus side for Ailes (Or perhaps not.) there is talk of making a TV series which chronicles the end of his career at Fox News.

They are talking about getting Anthony Hopkins for the role of Roger Ailes but I think that the actor who pulled this off in the movie Blade would be the better choice.

      Just listened to Ivanka talk about how she is not a surrogate. She sounded like a wife, particularly when she addressed their conversations. As a woman, Trump viscerally scares me. What if he is elected and this attitude toward women and minorities becomes a way of life? It has become that way already in isolated instances. Thanks God, almighty protector. what a crock.

      What kind of surrogate? Don't tell me she was mistaken for a surrogate mother. Donald's mother? Who?

      Ecuador took Assage internet away.

      He was a bad boy.
      Was that Ecuador's idea or were they manipulated by Putin?

      Assage gets his news from a guy with a bull horn, is that true? As long as there is not noise restrictions I guess that is as good as it gets for Assage.

      Too bad if he can't hear the debate and set off some twitter fun.

      After all is said and done, won't it be the Twitter King that wins?

    1. Shepard Smith is of no sexual interest to Ailes, and due to Smith's sexual orientation he will not go after women in whom Ailes might be interested.

      And he's a white man. So he poses no threat whatsoever to Ailes.

      "The Culinary Union, long a Donald Trump antagonist in Las Vegas, is going to “build” a wall of taco trucks outside Trump’s hotel, just a couple miles from UNLV, site of the final presidential debate."

    2. I just came back from Vegas where I had a view of the giant gold brick Trump tower. What I noticed right off was that it sits by itself at the north end of the strip, away from all the more established resort hotels - the classy Venetian, Palazzo, Cesars Palace, etc. Like even the Vegas hotels don't want him in the neighborhood

    Trump needs all his women friends more than ever, right now. Right now, not next week or even tomorrow.

    Hanging with Ailes has to be a killer for his reputation. He needs to make some new voters that are female. He has Melania and Kellyanne. There must be more woman that will speak up and give him support now when he needs it more than ever.

    Trump is falling into a deep black hole he can never get out of if something doesn't change for him, NOW.

    Like all the Republican women that support him come out of hiding and show what you are about and why you support him. If you won't do that for Trump, you won't do it for anyone. Republican women, the man, Donald Trump needs you now.

    1. Anonymous1:10 PM

      Whhhaaaaatttt? If hanging with Ailes would be a killer for his reputation? I thought just hanging with himself would be enough to do that. I mean, I am sure he has bankrupted many times because he's constantly paying shut up money out. And I heard somewhere along the line, on of the women who referred to him as an octopus.

    Trump shows his character by bring in those women last debate and now Obama's brother. He tries to get into Hillary's head in the worst way.

      Obama's brother

      That is hilarious. I doubt Hil will think twice or once about it. Of course, he will have to lie and say something about it so he can be negative. No wonder Ailes would not see eye to eye with the maroon Trump. As dirty and creepy as Ailes is, I don't think his brain is that demolished to think a bro is some debate point.

      Trump has really lost it. It looks like he will be around for awhile and we will get to see him lose more.

    I'd say in this case they were both telling the truth. Trump can't focus and I'm sure Ailes, in frustration was spinning stories of his successes and why Trump needed to listen and focus.

    Yep. Neither of those pigs are going to sing and both are annoyed as hell.

    But....isn't this delightful to read on the day of the debate. We know Donald didn't do any prepping except to memorize a few zingers and decide how he was going to attack Hillary's character. I guess he figures Chris Wallace is a push over who won't keep him on message or call time on him.

    Trump doesn't understand that when he's a bully on stage, interrupting Clinton and refusing to yield when his time is up, that it negatively impacts him. He also doesn't understand how it hurts him to go off message and refuse to answer the question.

    Hillary stays calm, on point, answers the question and rarely goes more than a few seconds over her time.

    The debates are to help us determine who is more presidential and who is more fit for the office.

    We could have stopped at the first one. The second (and third) will simply reinforce a decision we've already made.

    But it will be entertaining.

    (Damn, I should have bought stock in popcorn.)

    He wore a "fat suit" for an episode of House. Not sure if anyone remembers that one.

    Yeah. Trump is whacked. He invites Obama's half-brother as, I guess, a jab because BO told Trump to stop whining. But so what? Why waste a guest. It just looks silly and amateur. Trump also needs to bring female guests all the time to make him stronger, whether it be accusers of Bill (and he has a new one he's bringing tonight) or the mother of a deceased Smith of Benghazi and, too now, the then-girlfriend or fiancee of Chris Stevens. He has to invite woman after woman to give him a pair of balls, and he invites mostly women who have nothing directly to do with the campaign and his seating area is so tabloid. Some guests I get, sure, although it's still a sign of how desperate and needy Trump is. He thinks he's so macho? Hah!
