Watch: Trump's Campaign Manager Paul Manafort Displays His Terrible Relationship With Reality

Election '16

Donald Trump's campaign manager, Paul Manafort, got roasted by CNN host Jake Tapper after complaining about unfair media coverage Sunday. Manafort criticized CNN for focusing on the GOP nominee's Second Amendment comments Tuesday rather than Trump's economic speech. Manafort defended Trump, calling the week "very substantive."

"As a factual matter, on Monday my show covered Mr. Trump's speech, OK? We did. We covered Mr. Trump's speech. ... And we did cover those Hillary Clinton emails," Tapper said. “These things, just because you say them, they’re not true. We have been covering the substance. We have been covering the things that are bad to Hillary Clinton.” 

Just since the GOP convention, Paul Manafort has repeatedly flubbed on air, saying he'll soon be supporting Paul Ryan as president, appearing clueless to changes in his party's platform and blaming President Obama for events that occurred years before he took office.
