Donald Trump has been so busy adding thugs to his smearing committee that his latest appointment of another cut-throat as his deputy campaign manager (whatever that means) hardly made the columns of many newspapers and newscasts.
We refer to David Bossie, whom Dan Rather described as a “professional political hitman”.
Rather warned us that you can expect the worst from him in the final two months of the presidential campaign.
Bossie has devoted much of his time with a shovel to dig up anything that might scandalize the Democratic presidential nominee. He’s also scandalized himself as the president of Citizens United, the awful law that legalized endless political donations to candidates. A ruthless individual (the sort of guy Trump loves to have around) , he once served as the chief investigator for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, checking out – or planting- whatever might bruise and bury the Clintons all the way back to their Arkansas days. .
With Indiana’s goofy ex-congressman Dan Burton as his boss, he had free hand in vicious mudslinging. Burton was also so caught up in the scourge that he was said to have shot a watermelon in his back yard to somehow prove that the Clintons murdered Vince Foster. But Burton, one of those true moralists, ended up in disgrace himself when he finally admitted that he had fathered a child out of wedlock.
Trump and Bossie and Bannon and Ailes? The horrific Four Horsemen are back on what will be the muddiest of tracks.
