Tony Schwartz was the ghostwriter on Donald Trump's Art of the Deal. He was interviewed by MSNBC's Joy Reid about what we are seeing with Donald Trump over the past few days. Schwartz subscribes to the relatively popular theory that Donald Trump is probably a bit pathological in his personality disorders. "The pathos is that he's a little boy. He's a little boy who is desperate for love, a particular kind of love. He never got it. He's not getting it now, and he's in a blend of rage and depression," said Schwartz. When asked, "does Donald Trump care for his supporters?" Schwartz answered, "He isn't capable of caring for anyone. That's the heart of the problem. He is so needy himself, that he needs to spend all of his energy on filling himself up and there is simply, Joy, there is simply isn't any left to give to other people."
A liberal activist and organizer coordinated with reporters from the conservative news site Breitbart during the primaries to cover his disruptions of events for candidates such as Sen. Marco Rubio. Aaron Black, an associate with Democracy Partners and a former Occupy Wall Street organizer, worked with the pro-Trump site Breitbart, tipping them off about his stunts, exchanging raw video and coordinating coverage, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. Black has resurfaced recently as one of the people featured in undercover video from the Project Veritas group. In the video, he claims to work for the DNC.
Chris Christie's approval rating has dropped to its lowest point yet and is approaching a record level for any New Jersey governor in recent memory, according to a new poll. The Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind poll released Wednesday morning found that the Republican governor's approval rating stands at just 21 percent, down from 26 percent in July. The new poll comes just days after Christie signed into law a 23-cent-per-gallon increase in the gas tax and as the Bridgegate trial has dominated the news with negative headlines about his administration's conduct.
On October 16, a North Carolina headquarters of the Republican Party was firebombed , and an abhorrent threat was painted on its outside wall. As Democrats, we are starting this campaign to enable the Orange County, North Carolina Republican office to re-open as soon as possible. Until an investigation is undertaken, we cannot know who did this or why. No matter the result, this is not how Americans resolve their differences. We talk, we argue, sometimes we march, and most of all we vote. We do not resort to violence by individuals or by mobs. So, let's all pitch in , no matter what your party affiliation, in and get that office open again quickly.
Two big-money donors who have given or raised tens of thousands of dollars for Donald Trump are livid at the Republican presidential nominee and are asking for their money back, according to a bundler who raised money for Trump.
