Fired Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes Advising Donald Trump For Presidential Debates

Roger Ailes
As Republican Donald Trump finds himself sinking lower and lower in the polls when it comes to the support of women, suddenly it occurs to him - "I know, I'll have Roger Ailes coach me in advance of the coming presidential debates!"


I mean, who better than the guy who was recently forced out at Fox News as for multiple charges of sexual harassment? His approval rating among women is even lower that the Donald's!

Absolutely 3-D chess playing, expert political gamesmanship there. I'm telling you that.

From the New York Times:

Mr. Ailes is aiding Mr. Trump’s team as it turns its attention to the first debate with Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, on Sept. 26 at Hofstra University on Long Island, according to four people briefed on the move, who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

Two of them said that Mr. Ailes’s role could extend beyond the debates, which Mr. Trump’s advisers see as crucial to vaulting him back into strong contention for the presidency after a series of self-inflicted wounds that have eroded his standing in public opinion polls.

It was not clear when Mr. Ailes began helping the campaign. He resigned his post at Fox News on July 21 amid an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment by former female employees that occurred after a lawsuit by the former anchor Gretchen Carlson.

The Trump campaign denies Ailes' involvement in any capacity.
