She calls it “a surround-sound super structure” to bolster the new administration’s political and policy goals. Critics (i.e., those with functioning brain stems) see it more as a “Department of Trolling.”
The Washington Post reports that shrill, shrieking harpy, Kellyanne Conway, not having been offered an official post in the Trump administration (amid fears that she might mate with President-elect Trump and eat his head after consummation of the mating) will head out and form her own group to “Unleash the Potential” (Stand back! You don’t want to get hit in the face by all that potential being unleashed) of the new Trump administration.
The legal details are still in the works. The Post reports much of the mission will be the destruction of vulnerable Democratic incumbents in the 2018 election. Five of the 10 targets are women, so we can certainly look forward to the same gentle touch of misogyny so deftly employed by the Trump campaign.
“We’re fighting and planning how to continue this seismic change and the Trump revolution into the next election, and you’ve got the Democrats literally rehiring the same people who failed them,” Conway said, referring to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s reelection as House minority leader. “We’re trying to learn the right lessons from our election.”
The Trump group could potentially target each senator by mobilizing followers to call their offices or target the lawmakers on Twitter, Facebook and other social-media platforms. Hand-picked leaders in each of the counties Trump won across the country could also apply more direct pressure by calling state or district offices.
According to the Post, the new pro-Trump group could have major patrons in hedge fund manager Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah, who have emerged as influential figures in Trump’s orbit. The Mercers ran and financed a pro-Trump super PAC during the campaign, and Rebekah Mercer is close to Conway, deputy campaign manager David Bossie and campaign chairman Stephen K. Bannon, who will serve as the chief White House strategist.
The group will probably have access to the 10 million email addresses of potential supporters that the Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign picked up over the course of the campaign, a list that includes more than 2.5 million individual donors.
