Former Trump Campaign Manager Taken to Hospital

Former Trump campaign manager taken to hospital after report of suicide threat, police say

 

A former campaign manager of President Trump’s was taken to a hospital on Sunday after authorities received a call that he was threatening suicide at his Florida home, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department said in a statement.

 

Brad Parscale, who ran Trump’s campaign until July, was taken willingly to the hospital by police under a Florida law that allows authorities to detain a person they think poses a danger to themselves.

 

“Officers made contact with the male, developed a rapport, and safely negotiated for him to exit the home,” Sgt. DeAnna Greenlaw said. “The male was detained without injury and transported to Broward Health Medical Center for a Baker Act.”

 

The Trump campaign issued a statement in support of Parscale.

 

“Brad Parscale is a member of our family and we all love him. We are ready to support him and his family in any way possible,” Trump campaign manager Tim Murtaugh said.

 

Parscale continued to hold a senior role in the campaign — in charge of some of the campaign’s digital efforts — but had been demoted in July after questions were raised about his spending and in the aftermath of a June rally in Tulsa, where the president and Parscale promised a big crowd but one did not materialize amid the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Greenlaw said that the incident occurred about 4 p.m. Sunday and that police arrived at Parscale’s home in Fort Lauderdale in response to a call about “an armed male attempting suicide.”

The police were called by Parscale’s wife, who told the officers upon their arrival that “her husband was armed, had access to multiple firearms inside the residence and was threatening to harm himself.”

 

Two campaign officials said they were aware of an incident and were investigating it. They, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the situation.

 

Parscale, 44, had worked for the president in the 2016 cycle and was named campaign manager early in the presidency. He was aligned with Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law.

 

Parscale is close to the Trump family and had been in the campaign office in Arlington, Va., in recent weeks.

 

Parscale had told others that he was upset by his demotion and attacks from people who were questioning his behavior as campaign manager. But he had spoken to officials in recent days, aides said, and remained involved in the campaign.

I believe the old saying is,  "If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas."

 

Contrariwise, if you lie down with Trump, you may never get up again and if you do, you'll probably be broken, nuts, and/or doing jail time!

Yup, and we got that other nutcase of NHI on leave that was trying to take over the narrative of the CDC, telling us to stock up on ammo.

 

Nice selection of people, Donald?

 

Are  you paying for their much needed therapy?

Now @PhilipT605548 , how can he afford to pay for their therapy when he pays $70,000 for his much needed hairstyling for TV appearances?   After all, Donnie has his priorities.

Everyone and everything Trump touches turns into disaster.

 

Alert to Trumpers:  Don't drink the swamp water, then end up in the cesspool.

 

Nothing good comes from nothing, nothing ever does.

Unfortunate.

 

I hope Brad realizes his boss is not worth it.

Now that he's hospitalized, mental health professionals will gently deprogram him.  If all goes well.

trample.team is "ready to help" they say.  I don't think a stinking one of them will be on Brad's visitors list.

Its just a sad story of a discarded Trump cult member who needed to beat his wife and threaten suicide to get the evil tenticles of the administration out of his brain.

 

And there were weapons, ammo and unregistered guns in his home.

 

Nice choice, Donnie, for a campaign manager

 

Who approved this guy, Charlie Manson?

 

I feel sorry for this guy, but hope he writes a book.

Let the therapy and deprogramming begin...

 

It's fascinating what the trump Cult can do to a "normal" person.

I hope all saw the video of him being taken away. They tackled him and took him into custody. It looked rough.

There is a back story for all to watch on this. Money laundering could be one of the root causes of his problem. Time will tell.

 

Look back at the Trump inauguration and the committee that organized that. There was a book written by the First Ladies friend who was chairperson. There was all kinds of money laundering, and millions is still unaccounted for. 

Trump in action.

For the two trump administration folks who are now out with mental breakdowns, were they involved with any illegal activities in support of trump, and causing waves of guilt feelings?

Or are they reconsidering their association with trump, and trying to find a way out, versus just quitting and then having trump publicly attack them!

And they are certainly examples of the trump touch.

This poor guy is Freedo from the Godfather, in the scheme of Trumps international mob.

It's also sad that the only way to get rid of Trump in your life as an employee is to attempt suicide.
