Donald Trump appoints Breitbart chief and demotes Manafort

Donald Trump has appointed Stephen Bannon from the rightwing website Breitbart News as CEO of his campaign team, effectively demoting Paul Manafort, as the Republican nominee attempts to gain ground on Hillary Clinton in the US presidential race.

    I admit I did not click the link. I am responding to the headline.

    I suspect the Manafort will continue in precisely the same role he has been playing due to his campaign mgmt background and understanding of the MSM. BANNON has been brought in to manage the interwebs side of the Trump campaign, which is Bannon ‘s particular strength. The former will do his best to contain and protect the purity of the Trump message the MSM is working 24/7 to distort, while the latter will drive the on-line campaign to elect Trump. Sounds like a smart strategy to me……

      Unfortunately, Bannon was a sailor.
