Maggie Haberman ridicules Trump World for RNC Purge: ‘Odd Message To Support People Getting Fired’

CNN analyst Maggie Haberman said supporters of former President Donald Trump are sending a “strange message” by cheering the mass firings at the RNC.

New York Times correspondent and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman said supporters of former President Donald Trump are sending a “strange message” by cheering the mass firings at the RNC.

Shortly after the former president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump was installed to head the RNC, a bloodbath of firings began, as well as the hiring of Trumpy replacements.

Anderson Cooper interviewed Haberman during CNN’s Tuesday night coverage of the multiple”Super Tuesday II” contests. and asked her about the firings.

Haberman told Cooper that many are unhappy with the way Trumpworld figures have celebrated the moves:

COOPER: What do you make of the big firing — mass firings at the RNC under — with Lara Trump?

HABERMAN: Unsurprising, and I think it’s really mostly under Chris LaCivita, who has come in as, you know, he’s a top Trump campaign official, and he’s the de facto Chief of Staff now at the RNC.

COOPER: Unsurprising because there’s bloat there or —

HABERMAN: Unsurprising because they have been telegraphing that this was coming, for some time.

I think there is not a lot of happiness around some of the celebrating that was going on, by some folks, on the Trump campaign about it. And it’s a strange message, to cheer people getting fired, but especially when you are trying to win over more votes.

But look, we will see if it makes a difference. We will see if they end up hiring some of these folks back. We will see what the RNC ends up looking like.

But it’s not a surprise to see this mass shake-up.

COOPER: Maggie Haberman, thanks so much.

HABERMAN: Thank you.

Haberman also had some harsh criticism for Donald Trump over the fact that in her opinion, he has been “trafficking in racial stereotypes” as he makes “a play for Black voters.”
