‘This is crazy, crazy stuff’: Top Trump aide is desperately backpedaling after report reveals he trashed the president
written by Cody Fenwick April 16, 2019

CNN uncovered a radio interview from August 2015 on Monday that has put President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser and one of his new picks for the Federal Reserve in an awkward spot.

The recording captures a discussion between Larry Kudlow and Stephen Moore about Trump’s then-early campaign for the presidency. Both men, who now depend on Trump’s favor for their positions of power, trashed Trump’s economic policies and his attitudes toward immigrants.

Moore called Trump’s views “extreme nativist,” “crazy,” and “dangerous.”

“I think it’s a crazy policy,” he said. “I think it’s bad economics and I think it’s even worse politics.”

6. I think Stephen Miller is the bottom.

But that's just a guess.

5. Reminds me of one recent attack wedge -- how Trump can't run a two-car funeral.

This isn't just picking at weakness. This shows his "all the best people" failure from the very beginning. Which squashes his "conspiracy by evil Democrats" posturing.

Getting his people rattled now shows the old, deep cracks.

One of our candidates' mocking -- video, interviews, anything -- could give this traction later, weakening his donor support and unpaid audience size.

Some Democratic strategist should use this.
