Political Wizard


The candidate who stays on the bandwagon even while essentially advocating retirement of the Statue of Liberty, Trump employs a political wizard named Paul Manafort who specializes in image adjustment so well that even Putin used his services during the recent overthrow of the Ukranian Russian-sympathizing political bosses. He has also guided African dictators to create “good-daddy” disguises and maintains close mafia ties. No Johnny-come-lately, this super lobbyist helped Reagan and the Bushes, and carefully prevents as much as possible that the general public become aware of his name. Still, all of the crooked activities of Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign manager, are listed in Internet organs such as Slate. We need to get this name into mainstream news so that Trump’s guilt by association is crystal clear. Every voter should know there is a ruthless expert’s hand on the Donald’s rudder, and that is why such a hate-monger can defy the odds all the way to this fall’s super final test of Democracy. “Mana” means “flow” and “fort” means “strength.” Paul Manafort — reckon it, and resist all he stands for.
