Donald Trump Got Locked Out of His Own Data

For a guy who claims to only hire the best, Trump sure does stumble into some stupid things. Like this report tonight that the campaign tossed its data guru then found it could not “access some of its own data” since the guy left.

The leader of the data team for Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump left the campaign last month, Politico reported Tuesday.

The campaign laid off Matt Braynard, a former Republican National Committee strategist and the leader of Trump’s data team. Braynard didn’t train a successor, according to Politico.

The campaign hasn’t been able to access some of its own data since Braynard’s exit.

To replace Braynard, the campaign is relying on its No. 2 — a data engineer who reportedly does not have a lot of high-level political strategy experience.

The campaign has also given some of the responsibilities to a recent college graduate.

At some point you realize you are on the Island of Misfit Toys because you really are a misfit. With tiny hands.
