Today I call your attention to a Howard Fineman interview of Trump campaign chairman and chief strategist Paul Manafort. It runs with a footnote saying HP's editor hates literally everything Trump stands for.
Fineman doesn't put words in Manafort's mouth, doesn't quote him out of context, and generally does a decent job of letting the man have his say. If you find the Trump phenomenon interesting, reading the chief campaign guy's words are worthwhile. About the VP pick:
“He needs an experienced person to do the part of the job he doesn’t want to do. He seems himself more as the chairman of the board, than even the CEO, let alone the COO.”Skip the excretory footnote, unless you need the energy boost of a couple of minutes of anti-liberal hate.
The campaign probably won’t choose a woman or a member of a minority group, he said. “In fact, that would be viewed as pandering, I think.”
