Rudy Giuliani to Replace Both Kellyanne Conway and Reince Priebus on Sunday Shows

giulianiIn the midst of the biggest crisis his campaign has dealt with so far, it appears that Donald Trump is leaning on his most trusted confidants to deliver his campaign’s message ahead of Sunday’s big debate.

First, it was announced that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was no longer appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation Sunday morning. In his place, the Trump campaign tapped former New York City Mayor and current senior adviser Rudy Giuliani.

According to the Boston Globe’s Matt Viser, Trump’s team wanted a campaign person to show up on the program.

But this wasn’t to be the only replacement duty for Rudy. We also learned that Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway was no longer set to appear on Fox News Sunday.

The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza, who had just written up a profile piece on Conway, actually checked in with the veteran pollster to see if she had resigned.

Meanwhile, the list of Republicans distancing themselves from Trump in the wake of his “grab ’em by the pussy” comments continues to grow and grow.
