Steve Schmidt was a political consultant. Wasn't invited to mcCains funeral. He helped pick Sarah Palin then torched her via media. The guy was not loved by republicans.

However he was running Howard Schultz which could split the dem vote enough to get trump re-elected luckily Howard dropped out.

He also tried to join trumps team in 2016 but was shown the door. Trump thought he was a total idiot (let that sink in for a minute).
The guy is a griffter.

    Lincoln Project co-founder met with Trump for campaign role in 2016

    Well, this is a little awkward.

    Steve Schmidt, one of the co-founders of anti-Trump political action group the Lincoln Project, met with then-candidate Donald Trump and tried to join his campaign during a 2016 Manhattan meeting, sources with knowledge of the conversation told The Post.

    But the Republican operative — best known for his work on John McCain’s failed presidential bid before becoming one of the faces of the “Never Trump” movement — failed to get the gig because Trump thought he was a “total idiot,” one of the sources said.

    Ten days after Schmidt’s March 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, the campaign hired Paul Manafort as chairman and eventually promoted him to campaign manager.

    In an interview with PRWeek two years later, the Jersey-born political strategist and PR executive nonchalantly recounted the meeting with Trump as a chance to “see what he was about” and likened it to being given the opportunity to see a UFO in Central Park.

    But sources familiar with the meeting said Schmidt spent the entire encounter presenting what he thought the outsider candidate needed to do to win the election and was reportedly gunning for the campaign chief role, which Corey Lewandowski was fired from three months later.

    One source said Schmidt, 49, thought the president was “the best candidate he had ever seen” and recounted how the campaign and the operative exchanged emails for months beforehand.

    But things quickly soured when Trump thought Schmidt’s ideas were bad and the Big Apple real estate mogul left the meeting with a feeling that Schmidt was “very untrustworthy” and a “total idiot,” the insider said.

    “The president was very turned off by the fact that Schmidt had turned on McCain, his former boss, for the money,” the source alleged, referring to Schmidt’s decision to dish dirt on the 2008 campaign he helped guide to doom in a lengthy interview for scandalous campaign book “Game Change,” which eventually became a movie.
So interesting history. One you wouldn't know when you guys post. There's no context, history, only bias. You could all get a job at cnn.

The Trump interview with Axios. What happened.
Jonathan Swan is Dr Norman Swans son.

Donald Trump whipped out the charts to make his case about coronavirus. They didn't help him get around reporter Jonathan Swan

Great interview.
The kids ie teens are all sharing it. They tell me he comes across like an 8 year old.
To me he comes across as a likeable uncle who you wouldn't put in charge of looking after your garden if you went on holiday as he is a bit simple.

I do believe he is gone.
There's a reason he pumped out stimulus hard and why the democrats withheld it.

A lot can happen in 2 months though. Been a hell of a year.

Yeah I wouldn't put money on it :)

I think everything can happen what ever that is :roflmao: including Trumps re-election.

Trumps base is still solidly behind him still Corona is now into the US rural areas which is of great concern to the medical fraternity apparently that's the start of run away infections which wont help Trumps cause.

If Trump is gone, it will be our turn to ceaselessly post bs articles on Biden.

Quid pro quo, bro.

Mate... I don't think either of us believe Biden would be that good for people to have a need to post bs articles for a cheap e-catharsis...

But thanx for the advanced warning :)

BS articles indeed.. :) Quite sure there will be plenty of those. Fox Briebart and co are always good at such efforts.

But I think we will miss out on the true Trumpian tales. 20,000 lies on everything from the nothing problems of COVID to fantasy stories on how many people came to the inauguration.

We won't get to hear how Bidens family leached into the White House and set up Trump hotels around the world and "encouraged" other countries to support these endeavors if they wanted to speak with "The Don"

There won't be an endless stream on past partners parading through the Press with stories of abuse or just routine sex and every one being called liars while "The Don's " consiligeri paid them off.

We won't have the routine daily tweets trashing everyone in sight and making up foreign policy on the run at 6 am that convinces every other leader with two functioning neurons that this guy is xxxxing crackers.

We won't have an endless parade of prosecutors looking for his Tax returns to establish exactly where and how he defrauded the Government and who he was paying off.

But as I said these stories may indeed continue into 2021 anyway.:laugh:

There was something the other day that NY (I can't recall what office) were also investigating him for insurance fraud and that was why they were demanding his tax returns. Something to do with inflating his assets.

One thing I will say though, just based upon the way the dailymail article reads, it does look suspiciously like this has arisen pursuant to yet another "witch hunt".

Perhaps they have, after the past few years of solid efforts in this regard, actually found one at last!

However, based upon the Democrats' more recent track record, I have decided that it would be unwise to be holding one's breath in anticipation, of anything more, than the performance of yet another ill fated political satire.
