Donald Trump preened when vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence got good reviews last week for his debate performance. The Donald bragged that Pence was the “first choice” he had made, and thus a praiseworthy indication of his hiring prowess. Fact check: False.
A year before Donald Trump hired Breitbart News’ executive chairmanto be his presidential campaign’s CEO, Stephen K. Bannon boasted, “I’m Trump’s campaign manager” via email. Breitbart’s ties to Trump were long suspected before Bannon was brought aboard the campaign following the ouster of campaign chairman Paul Manafort in August 2016.
