Scoop: Trump's advisers brace for loss, point fingers

Source: Axios
 
Three senior Trump advisers who recently talked to campaign manager Bill Stepien walked away believing he thinks they will lose.

The big picture: The Trump campaign is filled with internal blaming and pre-spinning of a potential loss, accelerating a dire mood that's driven by a daily barrage of bleak headlines, campaign and White House officials tell me.
* "A lot of this is the president himself," one adviser said. "You can't heal a patient who doesn't want to take the diagnosis."

Behind the scenes: In weekly pep talks, Stepien tells staff members why they shouldn't pay attention to the perennially horrible public polls — and how they can "win the week" and the campaign.
* But in other private conversations, described by multiple sources, Stepien can seem darkly pessimistic. He likens the campaign to an airplane flying through turbulence, saying: "It's our job to safely land the plane."
* Three sources who have heard Stepien use variations of the airplane analogy say they sensed he was deeply, perhaps irretrievably pessimistic about the state of the race.
* "It's not a great feeling when you get the sense the campaign manager doesn't deep down think we're going to win," one campaign source said.

...snip...

Between the lines: Stepien's critics say he is in CYA mode, refusing to make tough decisions that might incur Trump's wrath while setting up excuses for what polls suggest could be a shellacking by Joe Biden.
* But Stepien's defenders tell me the campaign sees several remaining paths to victory, and note that it's hardly his fault when the president insists on actions like taking a joyride with the Secret Service while infected by COVID-19.
* They added that it's also hardly Stepien's fault that Trump continues to attack his public health officials and present views that are out of step with public opinion — such as his denigration of the basic safety act of wearing a mask.
* He's also dealing with a money shortage, driven by heavy early spending by his predecessor, Brad Parscale, who was demoted this summer.

PA bakery claims cookie sales have predicted past presidential elections — and here's how it looks for 2020

Lochel’s Bakery has conducted its 'cookie poll' for the last three election cycles, owner Kathleen Lochel tells Fox News

By Michael Bartiromo 

 

 

FacebookThe real winner of the 2020 election might be this Pennsylvania bakery.

 

A family-owned bakery in the town of Hatboro claims that its election-themed cookies — which are currently flying off the rack — have accurately predicted the outcome of the past three presidential elections.

 

So far, they say sales indicate a clear leader for the 2020 race, too.

 

Lochel’s Bakery, located in Montgomery County just north of Philadelphia, had launched its most recent “cookie poll” about six weeks back, offering both “Trump 2020” cookies and “Biden 2020” cookies in red and blue, respectively. This year’s sales, however, are unlike anything the bakery has seen during the last four election cycles.

 

Owner Kathleen Lochel tells Fox News the idea originally started "as a joke" back in 2008.

 

“People are going crazy for them," said bakery owner Kathleen Lochel in a statement to Fox News, adding that the shop usually only sells a few hundred each election.

 

Since debuting this year's cookies, however, Lochel’s has already sold thousands of the treats — and demand doesn’t seem to be dwindling anytime soon. On Friday morning, Lochel’s announced on Facebook that the bakery sold out of its supply the previous day, forcing the shop to close early to “bake, recoup and stock.”

 

“We will be open at 6 a.m. until when [I don’t know] because we could sell out like yesterday,” reads a message from the shop. “If we sell out we close early.”

 

Lochel's has instituted a new cap on walk-in orders due to high demand.

 

Lochel’s is now instituting a six-cookie limit for all walk-in customers. The bakery has further announced that it would only accept advance orders of 100 cookies or more.

 

That’s not to say the bakers aren’t happy to oblige customers near and far. Lochel’s is currently shipping the cookies to states all over the country, and Kathleen credits their popularity to both word-of-mouth and social media.

 

She’s also having a bit of fun, too, as she personally tallies up the sales after every few days.

 

"So far as of 10 a.m. Trump is in the lead 3 to 1," she told Fox News on Friday morning.

Despite the quadrennial cookie-off, Lochel’s Bakery claims that its contest isn’t aiming to make any political statement, but rather provide a fun outlet for the community and beyond.

 

"We are NOT favoring a candidate, we are NOT displaying personal feelings or commenting on who we want to win," Kathleen tells Fox News. "What we are doing is winning for the bakery," she added, explaining that the sales have more than made up for the initial losses the business suffered at the beginning of the pandemic. In fact, Lochel's Bakery has had to hire more workers to keep up with demand, and Kathleen says she's proud to be providing work and paying her employees overtime wages "through a rough time."

 

"We need to keep going to provide for staff, community and most importantly give people a sense of normalcy," she said.

 

The cookie poll isn’t entirely reflective of Montgomery County, either. Despite the bakery's sales correctly predicting that Trump would win in 2016, 58.38% of voters had cast their ballot for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

If Barrett were  a devout Muslim, Conservatives would have their tighty whities all in a bunch against her claims that she could separate her faith from the law.

Still, she has a couple of adopted Black children and I think that this will cause her to surprise the racist assholes in this forum in a very adverse way.

Are we supposed to believe that cookies or people who buy cookies are capable of counting on the Electoral College?

I wonder if she had "the talk" with her black kids.

 The one where she tells them to be afraid,very afraid of police and never ever trust a cop?

 Or will she send them out ignorant of how they are thought of by some white people and the danger they pose to her kids.

'Incredible snowflake': Kayleigh McEnany's 'everyone is against us' tweet is mocked by critics

.
 
She may not be back from her COVID-19 quarantine but she’s back on Twitter.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s Twitter account has been unlocked after she was required to delete a tweet linking to a New York Post story filled federal authorities are investigating to determine if it is Russian disinformation. McEnany claimed she deleted the post because, she said, the social media platform “essentially” had her at “gunpoint.”

McEnany is tweeting once again, and one missive she launched Thursday night went viral – apparently for being incredibly bad.

 
Also incredibly bad are things at the Trump White House and Trump re-election campaign HQ, it would seem.

McEnany says everyone is against “us.”

TWITTER is against us.

THE MEDIA is against us.

BIG TECH is against us.

THE SWAMP is against us.

THE DEEP STATE is against us.

THE HOLLYWOOD ELITE is against us.

CHINA is against us.

But President Trump has the WORKING MAN AND WOMAN and NOTHING can beat that

Axios was founded by and is run by leftist media guys.

 

Of course they would be anti-Trump in an op-ed.
