The Rats Are Jumping Off Trump's Sinking Ship: Today It's His Campaign Chairman

Paul Manafort says he resigned. Donald Trump says he fired him. Either way, it's just another crack in the veneer of Trump's shambolic and embarrassing presidential campaign. 

From the Washington Post:

Friends of Manafort said Friday they thought he was undone by the combination of revelations about his work on behalf of pro-Russian figures and the elevation of Conway and Bannon to Trump’s new inner circle.

“If you had had one of these things happen, it would have been survivable. But you had two of these things in concert,” said a GOP strategist who knows Manafort and, like others interviewed for this report, requested anonymity to comment on the Trump campaign. “One thing I don’t think Trump will tolerate is the focus being on someone else rather than himself.”

Manafort resigned 'to spend more time with his friends at the DOJ' (Department of Justice). He's in some very deep shit right now. There are strict rules in place for acting as a lobbyist on behalf of foreign powers, and he flaunted them. Which he probably would have gotten away with, had he not teamed up with Cinnamon Hitler and put himself in the spotlight. Dumbass.

"There are strict rules in place for acting as a lobbyist on behalf of foreign powers"... Do you mean like the bribes Hillary Clinton took from foreign powers as Sec. of State? The Clinton Foundation has been a slush fund for Bill and Hillary for well over a decade now. She is easily the most corrupt politician ever and the liberal media helps cover it up.

Again making trouble instead of helping anyone Obama has sent a 16 page guide to Louisiana on how not to engaging in “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency)" when dolling out federal aid. Thanks shit head lets just whip up the pot. And call all white people in Louisiana racist instead of just saying we are here to help. (source The Washington Times Aug. 19, 2016)

Yet Trump, Today, acted more presidential than either Obama or Hillary. Trump actually changed his schedule to got to flood ravaged Louisiana and he brought supplies and promised to help them rebuild. What did Obama do? Went golfing at Martha's Vineyard. Hillary is at home sick, and phoned their governor. Both of them criticized GW Bush for not responding to Hurricane Katrina victims fast enough, yet here they are not doing a damn thing to help. Trump has proved he's more presidential than either of them.

The point I'm getting at, if Hillary had these ties to Putin that Trump has holy shit the right would be blowing up. Trump is the most Pro Russian Candidate that we've had in probably ever. Think very carefully when you vote this November. Trump is dangerous. I'll take the liar I know but is qualified over the batshit crazy I know that screws over the working class whenever possible.

I'm pretty sure that's not why. Look at his business dealings with the Pro Russian Supported Ukraine President. He has deep Russian ties. They are trying to separate the Russian Controlled Trump from Putin. Surprised you aren't on this Trimble!
