PICK YOUR PAC
It’s hard for the press to pick which outrageous Donald Trump statement to prioritize, when he erupts so regularly. Still, the transcript of Tuesday’s exceptional Washington Post interview with him had a humdinger that the media (including the Post’s own article summarizing the interview) has overlooked.
Here’s that humdinger: Toward the end of the talk, and out of the blue, Trump matter-of-factly states that at some point after this year’s election “I’m gonna do two or three $10 million PACs at the right time” to selectively go after both Republican (!!!) and Democratic candidates. He specifically mentions Ohio Governor John Kasich as a potential target.
…or at least that’s the way it started, according to the former communications director for Donald Trump’s now-disbanded Super PAC. In a recent blog post, Stephanie Cegielski claims that Trump never initially intended to win the Republican nomination:
Even Trump’s most trusted advisors didn’t expect him to fare this well.
Almost a year ago, recruited for my public relations and public policy expertise, I sat in Trump Tower being told that the goal was to get The Donald to poll in double digits and come in second in delegate count. That was it.
Accidents happen…even with guns…even in gun-free zones…even in movie theaters…even sitting next to your pregnant wife…just like NASCAR…

His biggest mistake? No holster.
