Staff Shakeup

High level political campaigns often go through staff shakeups during the campaign as they seek to find a winning combination of staff members. Some people disapprove of this, preferring loyalty over pragmatism.

For example, when Ted Cruz’ campaign fired some staff members in February, one of his Republican opponents tweeted, “Wow was Ted Cruz disloyal to his very capable director of communication. He used him as a scape goat – fired like a dog! Ted panicked.”

The tweeter, of course, was little donny trump, who fired his campaign manager today.

Just two months ago, when Lewandowski got himself into a bit of trouble, trump refused to fire him because, as he said, “I am loyal to my friends. He has a family; he has kids. I won’t throw him out.”

trump is what you might call a fair weather friend. As long as trump is experiencing fair weather, it’s okay to be his friend. But when trump hits a rough spot, he is quick to look for someone else to blame. What a petty little thing he is.
