I’m flabbergasted by this Allegra Kirkland piece I’m reading bringing me up to speed on this morning’s news. But I’m also flabbergasted that I’m flabbergasted. Given everything that’s happened, given the cratering of support among not only all swing constituencies but even relatively reliable Republican constituencies – white married women, etc. – probably the most ridiculous thing you can imagine is going from the running the campaign with the antic mentality of Breitbart News to actually taking the head of Breitbart News and putting him in charge of the campaign.
Welp. That’s where we are. Trump has hired Breitbart News chief Stephen K. Bannon to take over running his campaign. No metaphor. No hyperbole. That’s straight up what’s happening. Allegra’s got the story here.
