Democratic political strategist James Carville said that members of President Donald Trump campaign are a “pack of grifters” who already know he’s about to lose the reelection bid but are working the campaign simply to make money off of it.
Carville said on MSNBC recently, “Look what his campaign is doing. They’re a pack of grifters… His campaign manager got two condos, a Ferrari, a yacht, a Range Rover and they’re all just fleecing the campaign.
This is all about making money and they’re going in there and giving him fake polls.”
Carville said, “It don’t matter if the Dow is 35,000, he’s not going to win.
He wasn’t going to win when unemployment was 3.5 percent, he’s certainly not going to win now.”
Carville, who is known for his outspoken opinions, added, “This whole thing is just like a crumbling empire right before your eyes. Everybody is trying to take everything they can get on the way out and they’re trying to prop him up so they all can make money.”
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale has been under fire from critics for collecting $38.9 million from the president’s campaign committees between the end of January and March, and he’s also the owner of all the properties and vehicles Carville mentioned.
“They’re all just fleecing the campaign,” Carville said, saying that aides in the campaign are lying to Trump to keep the cash flowing.

Carville seemed certain that Trump will lose this election but did offer concern that the president will somehow find a way to interfere with the voting process.
He said, “They were going to lose before this sh*t. They’re just going to lose worse now. And they all know it…And they’re all getting profiles written of themselves, I saw Blaise Pascal [sic], campaign manager, whatever his name is all over the New York Times Magazine posing for pictures. This whole thing is gone.”
