Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale Has Built A $1 Billion Disinformation Machine
The ‘Death Star’: Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale has built a $1 billion disinformation machine — but there’s a way to beat it.
They’re calling it the “Death Star.” While supporters of the various Democratic candidates for president pummel each other online, Grand Moff Brad Parscale, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, is deploying this appropriately nicknamed $1 billion disinformation machine with the real potential to obliterate even the most perfect Democratic ticket this fall. For starters.
Among other things, this raises an extraordinarily important question: How exactly do the Democrats fight back against what amounts to a nuclear arsenal of lies and kooky conspiracy theories? We’ll circle back to that.
McKay Coppins’ terrifying new article for The Atlantic, “The Billion-Dollar Disinformation Campaign to Reelect the President,” about Parscale’s Rosslyn, Virginia-based agitprop factory, the “Death Star,” is a stop-the-presses moment for this election. Frankly, the size and despot-scale cynicism of Parscale’s project is almost too much to comprehend, rendering the myriad other Jenga pieces in this election small by comparison.
