Abandon Ship! Trump Loses Another Key Campaign Player

(Before It's News)

Another day, another rat abandoning this torpedoed ship?

I’ve worked in companies with high turnover rates, before. Usually it’s for one of two reasons: either the work is too strenuous or management is too difficult to work with.

With roughly two weeks until election day, Donald Trump has seen another key player step back from his campaign.

Jim Murphy, national political director for the Trump campaign, has decided to take a little time off, according to multiple sources.

“I have not resigned but for personal reasons have had to take a step back from the campaign,” Murphy said in a statement to POLITICO. He did not elaborate on the reasons for his departure.

Several Trump aides said that Murphy has been conspicuously absent in recent days as the campaign mobilizes for the final push.

Since joining the Trump campaign in June, Murphy, a longtime party operative, has played a key role in setting up field programs in battleground states. He has emerged as a central point person between top Trump campaign officials and the Republican National Committee. Murphy also helped to oversee floor operations at the Republican National Convention in July.

The facts are, Trump has not put together a truly cohesive ground game in some very key states in this race.

He has been outmaneuvered by Clinton’s more professional team, from day one.

Note to Branch Trumpidians: This is the difference between “professional politicians” and “outsiders.”

Those professional politicians know how to run campaigns and win elections. Those outsiders, especially if they are absolutely determined to push back against their advisors and every sound piece of policy advice, don’t tend to do very well, except with the fringe groups that adore them.

There’s a reason Trump is having trouble keeping help. Just yesterday, it was reported that even former Fox News president, Roger Ailes was stepping back.

It’s the latest departure in a campaign rife with turnover. Manafort resigned from the campaign in August, just two months after succeeding Trump’s first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who was fired. Other campaign hands, including longtime party strategist Ed Brookover, have also left.

This is in addition to the various state campaign directors and operatives who have either bailed or been let go.

It’s almost like they can sense the inevitable.

  • The ONLY torpedoed ship is the SS Hills, hit hard and going down by the bow on fire.

  • “It’s almost like they can sense the inevitable”.

    You mean just like Simon/Peter denied Christ 3 times and left him alone to die?
    The Donald is better off without all the “fair weather” friends and supporters.


    Donald, you are an embarrassment. You cannot win the election. You will cause both houses of congress to go majority democratic, since the voters will just push the ALL DEMOCRAT button on the voting machine.

    Mr. Trump, do the right thing, and resign from the campaign. Let Mr. Pence run in your place.

    The country will not recover from a dem party sweep of Congress and the White House. Hillary will take the country into Armageddon. Your children will grow up in a nuclear wasteland, assuming they survive.

    What a nightmare.

  • The good news is a killery win means our enemies go to war! With us! And there won’t be any more elections to worry about, or corruption in washington, because it will no longer exist. And those who survive can enjoy the solice of a world free of american corruption as they walk from place to place, and wait for the radiation to consume their cells. The lucky ones saw the flash, and disintegrated. This is what hitlery brings to the table!
