So the plan of Trump surrogates when being interviewed is to not answer the question asked plus:

Talk over the interviewer that is asking for clarification
Pivot from the original question and answer something not asked
Re-frame the question to one you want to answer
When caught in a lie, blame the interviewer, the media, or Hillary campaign
When all else fails, go back to screaming over the interviewer
When all else fails again, pretend you are having communication problems and can't hear the interviewer.

2. I just saw Manafort pretend he didn't hear a queestion on Trump's taxes then launches into

the tax return that Hillary did give. Is it me or does Manafort just look sleazy as fuck, he reminds me of Vince Mc Mann

5. I saw that, too...

I was thinking, are you sure you want to criticize anything about Hillary's tax returns considering your candidate's refusal to release his own?

Also, YES, he looks incredibly sleazy. He looks like he would sell his own mother.

3. They're a bunch of opportunistic and evasive bullies, just like their master.

They can't answer the questions because there are no answers so they cause chaos and get everyone worked up.

6. The Media is not going to ask any questions of Trump or

 

his stooges. Notice now that Trump went all in accusing the Media for his troubles,which is another of his many lies,the Media is just repeating what he says. And,this is producing free publicity for Trump. Why spend Campaign funds when if you manipulate the source of your Media Created Persona,you are doing two things at one time. If you think the Media is going to share any blame for this Stooge,forget about it. And two,the Media is so embarrassed and will never admit they screwed up. Con Man Con knows darn well how to massage the ego's of the Press.

7. That about sums it up.

They are insufferable and unwatchable. EVERY time one of them opens its pie hole I mute the t.v. or switch channels.

9. Exactly

Interviewing a trump minion is like interviewing a psycho.

I notice that they always have a goofy grin while being interviewed.

I have never seen one of them answer the question asked.

What a bunch of turds.

10. This has been going on for years...

with any number of RW spinmeisters. It's a full on Gish Gallup every time they get on camera.
