Trump’s path to victory

Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC, is the new CEO of the Trump campaign.

Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC, is the new CEO of the Trump campaign.

Everyone (i.e., the left-leaning pundits that the Bitemaster follows) says that Bannon will just “let Trump be Trump,” which will lead to further plummeting poll numbers.

Not quite so fast. I hereby predict that Bannon will not try to rein in Trump, but while Trump continues saying stupid stuff on the campaign trail, Bannon, a master of negative research, will be in the background, quietly feeding the mainstream media a continuing stream of of negative stories about Hillary Clinton. Topics will include the Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s email troubles, Benghazi, Hillary’s health, and aides Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin.

Just remember: you heard it here first, folks!

Ari Fleischer on the Trump maelstrom

Ari Fleischer, a press secretary in the George W. Bush White House, said Trump’s repeated calamities have “made it harder for people like me to be for him.” But he still intends to support the New York businessman over Clinton.

“Donald Trump says horribly offensive things that rattle me and bother me deeply. Hillary Clinton has done horribly bad things in terms of her personal ethics, in terms of her governmental ethics,” he said. “Trump has done it with his words. She’s done it with her deeds.”

Fleischer handled it like a pro.

Sanders campaign accessed Clinton voter data

Bernie Sanders apologized to Hillary Clinton in the third Democratic debate hosted by ABC News after his staffers accessed Clinton’s voter data. “Yes, I apologize,” he said when asked whether Clinton was owed an apology. “I very much appreciate that comment, Bernie,” Clinton responded.

Quick summary: A Bernie Sanders staffer accessed Clinton voter data on a DNC computer. DNC cut off Sanders campaign’s access to DNC voter data. Sanders sued DNC, fired staffer, apologized to Clinton. DNC restored access.

Sounds like everyone is happy now.

But just a day before, Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver accused the DNC of theft:

Two million contributions have come in. Those contributions paid for the data that the DNC has stolen. Those voters and volunteers — that’s their data. That’s not Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s data.

It was a classic Big Lie.

Sanders accused the DNC of theft, but if there was any theft, it was Sanders’ employees who stole Clinton’s voter data.

A new kind of candidate?
