    Trump Campaign Told Supporters To Chant ‘Send Her Back’ At Rally: Ex-Advisor

    This from someone who would know. She worked as a close adviser to Trump during the 2016 campaign. She's known him for over 15 years. She was in the West Wing for over a year.

    “At those rallies, these things are choreographed. There are section leaders who help to start the chants — so it was intentional and we know they did it so they would start the chants so he could test it,” she explained.

    “That was no accident, it didn’t start spontaneously. He knew what they would be chanting,” she concluded. LINK
    This makes perfect sense. By claiming the supporters were spontaneous when the blowback came, Trump can disavow them. If the backlash had not come, he'd be claiming credit.

    Trump believes everything is about image and public relations. It's all about public perception. And, unfortunately he may be right. More than one author has claimed that military and cabinet positions were filled by a particular individual in large part because they "looked the part." Likewise, others have not been nominated or appointed because they were not the image Trump was looking for, regardless of their qualifications. Remember when Trump described the Chinese president's aides as "right out of central casting"? He said the same thing about his supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as well as general Mattis, his pick for secretary of defense.

    It does not surprise me to learn that these so-called spontaneous crowd outbursts are actually choreographed by the Trump campaign. It is consistent with what we know Trump has said in the past. It fits with his "image and brand are everything" philosophy. And it is consistent that Trump supporters are being played for fools as always.

    If it only hadn’t been Omarosa! Ex-advisor sounds so much better.

    This has been. Obvious all along, when the chants start it's always in unison rather than. A few people starting it and others joining in...

    I agree.

    I read the OP and the quote he posted and thought, "who is this ex-advisor?" I clicked on the link and what do I see? Omarosa! LOL!!

    They would have been better off citing an unnamed source.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    Well this certainly looks credible. "Look what Omarosa said on this website with an extreme leftwing bias!"

    She didn't say it to that website, she was on MSNBC with Donny Deutsch on “Saturday Night Politics.” Deutsch is an old buddy of Trump's.

    Yeah, I agree, her credibility is lacking. She knew he was a racist when she went to work for him. Her motives have always been self-serving. But she did work on the 2016 campaign and she does know the tactics used at Trump's rallies, so there's that.

    I'm kind of surprised people actually need an article to realize what's been obvious from as far back as "lock her up" and "build that wall". Just about anyone who's been in a TV audience knows there are " que" people to get an audience participation. And we also know those people sitting behind him are expected to give an active supportive performance or they're swapped out quickly. The fact it came from Omarosa makes it easy for people to dismiss, but leading audiences is nothing new, and unfortunately this president treats his job like he still on reality TV.

    This cannot possibly be surprising. He's a master of the reality television genre. He worked with Mark Burnett for almost seven years.
    Of COURSE everything is scripted and choreographed.
    Trump dropping a deuce into his golden bowl every morning is choreographed, just in case.

    As was pointed out, Omarosa did not say this to the "website with an extreme leftwing bias."

    You can say a lot of negative things about her, but she was an eyewitness to Trump for many years and she has not been discredited. And as I pointed out, her account is consistent with what others have said and from what we know from Trump's own public statements.

    Go ahead, shoot the messenger. Doesn't change the truth.
