Too Good to Be True? Dick Morris Might Join the Trump Campaign
Recent reports suggest the campaign of Donald Trump, presumptive GOP nominee and irate cartoon volcano, just might be a vastly disorganized mess. Too small to surmount basic challenges, yet riddled with toxic infighting, Trump’s organization is reportedly struggling to create a cogent narrative for the candidate and corral his noxious public impulses. Trump himself has countermanded directives issued by his top staff, and seems to not even have met some of the more critical figures in his employ.
Clearly, something needs to be done. So it looks like they might bring on… Dick Morris? Yeah, that should definitely solve everything.*
Rumors of a Trump-Morris alliance stirred to life on Monday after New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman, citing “two sources with direct knowledge,” reported that the Trump team is talking with Morris about bringing him on board as a campaign strategist. This news comes days after it was revealed that Morris’ latest stop on his downward spiral would be serving as the chief political correspondent for the National Enquirer.
Morris, the patron saint of below-average white guys, most recently made a name for himself as the most unerringly erring pundit from the 2012 election cycle, in which he predicted that Mitt Romney would win in an epic landslide, among other wrong things. Since then, Morris has attempted to get in on the scam investment game, pitching penny stocks to unsuspecting rubes in sponsored email blasts
