CHUCK TODD:

Do you acknowledge that you’re behind both organizationally and in the polls?

PAUL MANAFORT:

No, I think because what you’re trying to do is comparing an 800-person organization in Brooklyn of Mrs. Clinton’s with an integrated system of the R.N.C. and the Trump campaign, which doesn’t appear on an F.E.C. report. We have hundreds, we have actually thousands of people in the battleground states, political organizers who are now in place, we have state organizations that are in place, we have our campaign plans in place, we have our budgets in place.

And the good thing is, we have a candidate who doesn’t need to figure out what’s going on in order to say what he wants to do. So our campaign is organized. We’re ready, we’re going to have a good convention, and we’re confident that we are not behind the Clinton campaign. They’re muscle-bound. We’re not.

When the big selling point for a candidate is that it doesn’t matter if he campaigns or not because he doesn’t know what’s going on, that is a problem. The fact that Republicans view Trump’s cluelessness as an asset speaks volumes about the state of the GOP.

The Republican war against intellect, facts, and education has reached the point where Donald Trump’s ignorance is a virtue. Trump is just going to say what he is going to do without policies, no matter what else is going on in the world. The Trump campaign is suggesting that they don’t need to be organized because the candidate is making it up as he goes along.

The Republican Party’s rejection of substance while embracing anti-intellectualism has finally paid off in the candidacy of Donald J. Trump.
