hillary clinton's campaign was as bad as you thought, maybe worse


successful campaigns are all alike; every unsuccessful campaign is unsuccessful in its own way. or so the authors of campaign books would have us believe. in shattered: inside hillary clinton’s doomed campaign, authors jonathan allen and amie parnes present a view of the 2016 clinton campaign that tells us more about the personalities and problems that plagued it than any reporting to date.the premise, as stated in the subtitle, is that the effort was destined to fail. in that, they are partly wrong and fall into the same trap of most campaign books by blaming the campaign rather than the candidate. if anything doomed clinton’s chances, it was not campaign manager robbie mook’s misjudgments, real as they were, nor the infighting that plagues all campaigns. what doomed clinton was clinton h

here are some of the times trump complained about a president using air force on


president trump touched down saturday in central florida for what he has labeled a "make america great again rally," hosted by his campaign years before the first votes are to be cast in another white house race. trump arrived here on air force one after a short flight from west palm beach, where he is spending a third consecutive weekend at his mar-a-lago estate, dubbed the "winter white house." that means that while his campaign organization bears many of the costs for the event, taxpayers will be on the hook for some of the politicking, too. and it wasn't long ago that trump himself was complaining loudly about the same thing. here are just a few examples from the 2016 campaign, when president obama was campaigning for hillary clinton, and earlier campaign cycles.
