Guess who Donald Trump is tied to now, besides former President Bill Clinton and socialist mayor Bill DeBlasio, a man Trump fondly called a “good mayor”?
See if you recognize any of these names:
Sarah Palin, David H. Koch, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, to name a few. That list could be the next season of “The Apprentice: Multi-Millionaire and Billionaire Edition”.
Unfortunately, that’s not who Trump is cavorting with. Nevertheless, Trump’s team is filled with some heavy hitters from the campaign circuit, and all are related to the aforementioned.
People like national political adviser Michael Glassner. Glassner was Governor Sarah Palin’s chief adviser during her 2008 Vice-Presidential run, and an adviser to George W. Bush during the 2000 Presidential Campaign.
Other political behind-the-scenes luminaries in tow with Trump is Iowa Political Director Chuck Laudner, who ran the ever important ground game for Rick Santorum’s successful win of the Iowa caucus in 2012, and Iowa Deputy State Director Ryan Keller, who orchestrated Rick Perry’s Iowa operation in 2012.
With Iowa in good hands, Trump added New Hampshire State Director Matt Ciepielowski, who is another former AFPer with Lewandowski in the pivotal New Hampshire territory. Trump also added Campaign Treasurer Timothy Jost, arguably the most important man besides the candidate, since the person in that role is responsible for keeping people out of jail. Jost worked Governor Mitt Romney’s campaign in 2012 and for 5 years prior.
Also spotted was campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, founder of the New Hampshire chapter of Americans for Prosperity, an organization funded by one of those evil Koch brothers who want limited government and personal accountability.
Finally, what Trump operation would it be without his KIDS!
Ivanka, Donald Jr and Eric are all part of the campaign as well. Apparently, Ivanka’s main role is to provide her dad with her own eponymous line of fancy neckties. Hey, it helps to be part of a billionaire’s family!
So that’s the Trump “Dream Team.” Who will be the first to hear “YOU’RE FIRED!” Oh wait…Roger Stone has already won that distinction.
