Trump Campaign Reps Push Back Via Deflection In Sunday Interviews

It was a rough day at the office for Donald Trump spokesmen on the Sunday morning political shows as the Republican nominee's campaign devolves into disarray.

Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort clashed with CNN's Jake Tapper on Trump's non-disclosed tax returns, the Trumpster's inability to stay on message and more.

Via Mediaite:

Tapper pointed out that Trump was the one who took his message off the rails with that message people interpreted to be a violent warning. Manafort complained to Tapper that he could have been covering pay-for-play allegations surrounding Clinton.

In response, Tapper said he has covered that, and he even told Manafort, “These things, just because you say them, they’re not true! We have been covering the substance!”

Manafort insisted the media’s distracting away from the message. Tapper asked, “And Mr. Trump bears no responsibility for his campaign being off-message?”

CNN's Brian Stetler asks Trump Senior Communications Advisor Jason Miller about the Trumpster's attack on the New York Times and the media at large.

Also from Mediaite:

Miller spent the first part of the segment complaining about the New York Times report on internal campaign chaos––a report Trump has trashed––and going so far as to say, “I wish people would cancel their subscriptions to The New York Times.”

Stelter asked him if this isn’t just an example of a true story that’s just “painful to read.” Miller insisted the campaign is unified.
