Donald Trump’s A Lunatic, Film At Eleven

Yes, but what about the thousands still streaming in? Surely Trump wouldn’t lie about crowd size!

Bloomberg reporters Jennifer Jacobs and Kevin Cirilli got themselves a bit of a scoop: They’ve discovered at least part of the reason Donald Trump seemed quite a bit more unhinged than usual at his Phoenix rally last week. He was very angry that his advance people hadn’t managed to pack the part of the Phoenix Convention Center used for the event, and was actually so pissy about it that he got rid of a longtime aide who’d been responsible for organizing most of his major campaign rallies. Fortunately, Trump does not yet have the power to demand the immediate beheading of lackeys who have disappointed him.

Trump was already steaming mad before the event started, it seems, because backstage, he saw on a TV monitor that the space simply wasn’t filling up like he wanted.

As his surrogates warmed up the audience, the expanse of shiny concrete eventually filled in with cheering Trump fans. But it was too late for a longtime Trump aide, George Gigicos, the former White House director of advance who had organized the event as a contractor to the Republican National Committee. Trump later had his top security aide, Keith Schiller, inform Gigicos that he’d never manage a Trump rally again, according to three people familiar with the matter.

You’ll note that Trump once again didn’t have the guts to say “You’re fired” to Gigicos himself. He was probably too busy Making America Great.

Gigicos probably also wondered why Trump kept reaching out his arm, making a gesture like he was closing his fingers around a throat, and saying in a bad James Earl Jones voice, “You have failed me for the last time.” No one quite has the guts to tell Trump that he still needs a lot of experience points to add Force Choke to his inventory.

Following his dismissal by Trump, Gigicos, who it turns out was among Trump’s four longest-serving political aides, “declined to comment,” presumably because he was already on the phone to an agent about a tell-all book.
