Trump Campaign Team Shows Again They're not Ready for Primetime

That's what a GOP operative is saying after David Brock managed to get a copy of the speech a few hours before the night started.

"Republican source' leaks Trump speech to Dems."

'If I were them, I would be a little freaked,' says Clinton ally David Brock.

"Correct the Record sent the text of Trump’s draft speech to its press list a little after 6 pm, gloating “as if this convention hasn't been enough of a failure for Trump, somehow he let US get a hold of his full remarks before the speech.”

"About 15 minutes later, the Trump campaign sent out a press release containing excerpts of Trump’s speech that closely matched the draft released by Correct the Record."

"The Trump campaign did not respond to a question about how the draft might have leaked."

"But a senior Republican operative working behind the scenes at the convention called the leak " a disaster” that proved that Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his team “just aren't ready for prime time.”

"The drafts obtained by Correct the Record were in a single document formatted for a TelePrompTer, and were time-stamped from the early afternoon."

"The document began circulating in political and journalism circles and POLITICO obtained a draft of it soon after 5 p.m., but refrained from publishing it until verifying its authenticity."

"Brock said Correct the Record staff “took a little time to verify that it was real. We had a way of making sure that it wasn’t some James O’Keefe operation.”

More proof of Trump's good management that will enable him to run the country without knowing anything or caring to know anything.

He's going to hire the best advisers. Like the ones who have put together this convention. You know who mismanaged a showdown with the NeverTrumpers, where Trump needlessly antagonized the GOP Governor of Ohio whose help he needs for turnout in the state. His team also somehow gave his wife a plagiarized speech from the FLOTUS-though Trump is now blaming it all on his wife. Who says chivalry is dead?

The same brilliant management that led to being totally sucker punched by Ted Cruz last night. Now somehow their speech leaks to their opponent.

Sure, give him the nuclear codes and default on the debt. Clearly he knows exactly what he's doing.
