Campaign Chair: Trump Doesn’t Need to Know Anything to Speak

For reasons that I'll cover, this is a very amusing statement coming Team Trump.

Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort appeared on Meet the Press yesterday where he said the Republican presidential nominee doesn't need to figure anything out.

“The good thing is, we have a candidate who doesn’t need to figure out what’s going on in order to say what he wants to do,” campaign chair Paul Manafort said in a Sunday appearance on “Meet the Press.”

Asked by host Chuck Todd to acknowledge that Trump was “behind” in manpower, ground organization and fundraising, Manafort said the teams were running fundamentally different campaigns.

Donald Trump is known for saying many stupid and offensive things, but chiefly among them is his on-again off-again insistence that we halt all Muslim immigration.

Trump infamously said that we should halt all Muslim immigration until we can "figure out what's going on."

Does he or doesn't he need to figure out what's going on?

    No wonder he wears a cap all the time. That thing on his head might act up at any minute.
    “It’s alive”!!!!!

    Paul Manafort admitted, out loud and on purpose, in front of a national television audience (admittedly, one that numbers in the thousands, but still) that his boss’s opinions and plans are detached from objective reality. We already knew that, but it’s nice to get confirmation from inside the Trump campaign.
