DONALD TRUMP HIRES MICHAEL MOORE
HOLLYWOOD – Donald Trump has once more shaken up his campaign by hiring Flint documentary filmmaker Michael Moore as a new campaign head.
It is the second time in two months that Donald Trump has changed top personnel in his campaign for President. And his choice is going to strike many as a strange one. Documentary filmmaker and Oscar winner Michael Moore has been given the role of senior adviser to Mr. Trump and will also craft some of the TV ads that have been noticeably absent from his campaign. A statement from the Trump camp read:
Michael is a winner and although we don’t necessarily see eye-to-eye on many issues, including my presidential campaign, I fully believe in placing winners in important positions around me. Michael understands America and what makes America great. I’m sure we will work well together.
Paul Manafort, the campaign chairman, will retain his title. But the staffing change, hammered out on Sunday and set to be formally announced Wednesday morning, was seen by some as a demotion for Mr. Manafort. The strangeness of the choice was even more marked as Michael Moore had published a post on his blog claiming that Mr. Trump was deliberately trying to lose the Presidential election or better still somehow get disqualified before it took place. He reacted to the news of his promotion with a short two word post which said, ‘You see?’
