Is that that the guy whose job it was to keep team Trump in Adderall and coordinate with the FSB during the 2016 campaign?

Trump resents any money that's not coming his way.

I really liked his essay on metamodernism, but I stopped taking Abramson seriously after the breathless 500-Tweet thread where I had to imagine him shiatting in a sock.

D2S.

Getting under his skin is a Lincoln Project goal.

I'm kind of impressed by his grift game.  He's just a guy.  He is not a genius digital marketing savant.  He, like Kellyanne and Gorka and Bannnon, are misfit toys who were drug along by the sheer force of Donald Trump's personality.  He will also be fired soon because multiple publications are saying that he's the real brains of the operation.

I guarantee a heavy chunk of Parscale's income turns right back around into purchases from the Trump Organization.

The only thing that Parscale ever does that displeases Trump is show him bad polling, which he then corrects by showing Trump good polling. If Trump loses he will sue for Parscale ripping him off, but not a moment before.

I don't get this.  Trump literally owes his Presidency to Parscale.  Why would he begrudge Brad his share of the grift?

Also, 'Ferarri' is spelled 'Ferrari,' and I sailed bigger 'yachts' in my bathtub as a kid.

Remember, the Lincoln Project is a bunch of Republicans who actually have no problem with anything that's happening except that Trump is damaging the brand and needs to be stopped. Otherwise? Tax cuts? Fine. Service cuts? Yep, those are good. Vote suppression? They live for it! Judges? Oh, they're good with the judges.

It figures that they're running a better campaign than Clinton and Biden combined.

IT guy here. I resent the implication that somehow "the IT guy" is such a lowly schmuck that getting conned by him is worthy of derision.

IT guys can really mess shiat up.

I imagine, anyway.


Anyway, fark Trump.

This guy found a way to getting noticed by wealthy and powerful people, capitalized on it, and is now richer than he probably ever thought he was going to be.  Too bad he attached himself to the most vile person possible to get himself there.

He's also spending like it's going out of style, and it's no surprise it's on real estate in Florida - hardest assets to go after in the event of a lawsuit or bankruptcy.  Wouldn't be surprised if he's sent a shiatload of assets offshore in the event Drumpf loses this December.

By what measure? Because they have more Republicans supporting them?

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good negative political ad just as much as the next guy, but what are you using as the basis for your claim?

But that's part of the problem.  States that weren't swing states suddenly became swing states last cycle because they were taken for granted, and opinions cross state borders

From the article I linked:

Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin

and that is from last month.

Biden's team is on top of the data. I wouldn't be surprised to start seeing ads in TX and GA from him. 

Plus the national buys.

plus the social media buys.

like, "I hereby demand" has to be NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

Whatever yacht he has, it's worth $400,000, according to an actual story on the thing, not an ad. Looking back, the guy seems to have been decently successful before sucking on Donnie's dick, so it's not like he was living on the streets until Trump tripped over him and hired him. But he was nowhere in the neighborhood of having $5 million just between his houses and a boat.

Here's the story that values the boat at $400,000:
https://www.businessinsider.com/trump​-​campaign-manager-parscales-companies-g​ot-nearly-40-million-2020-5

And sorry it's the Daily Mail, but this one seems to have some details, too. And amazingly enough, it's got FAR more data than the story above and the ad put together:

And I would say that he isn't being "conned". He's getting the exact shiat he's paying for. He doesn't care who does it, as long as it gets done.

But that really doesn't help with the election. I do get it's fun to drive him bonkers and it *may* make him screw things up, but isn't the ultimate goal to get the bastard out of office? They need to run ads that make the normally apathetic think "we have to vote against this guy or his stupidity could kill us".

The previous ads they have done have been exceptional, this one, not so much, IMO.

Now, I can see that if Parscale is in any way competent (assumes facts not in evidence) that driving a rift between him and Trump would be strategically advantageous.
