On the afternoon of November 8, 2016, Kellyanne Conway settled into her glass office at Trump Tower. Right up until the last weeks of the race, the campaign headquarters had remained a listless place. All that seemed to distinguish it from a corporate back office were a few posters with right-wing slogans.
Conway, the campaigns manager, was in a remarkably buoyant mood, considering she was about to experience a resounding, if not cataclysmic, defeat. Donald Trump would lose the election of this she was sure but he would quite possibly hold the defeat to under six points. That was a substantial victory. As for the looming defeat itself, she shrugged it off: It was Reince Priebuss fault, not hers.
She had spent a good part of the day calling friends and allies in the political world and blaming Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee. Now she briefed some of the television producers and anchors whom she had been carefully courting since joining the Trump campaign and with whom she had been actively interviewing in the last few weeks, hoping to land a permanent on-air job after the election.
Even though the numbers in a few key states had appeared to be changing to Trumps advantage, neither Conway nor Trump himself nor his son-in-law, Jared Kushner the effective head of the campaign wavered in their certainty: Their unexpected adventure would soon be over. Not only would Trump not be president, almost everyone in the campaign agreed, he should probably not be. Conveniently, the former conviction meant nobody had to deal with the latter issue.

This story should definitely win honorable mention at President Trump’s media awards come Monday.
I wish I could get paid to write fiction.
I guess we’ll be seeing this guy Wolff on every news talk sho now. Ban on, too...
He didn’t want to be president, but he colluded with Russia to make it happen!
Isn’t this the same clown who is pimping his new “book” in which he claims Bannon called President Trump a traitor? Bargain bin fodder.
What a BS story, if I ever heard one......
hmmm, I spent millions of MY OWN money, took out the liberal media lies, fought a hostile GOP to get the nomination and i DID NOT WANT to be president?
Liberal stupidity folks. Nothing to see here..
Definitely, today has provided President Trump with new nominees for his awards presentation next Monday.
And yet somehow, Trump was holding two to three campaign rallies a day all across the country.
He’s a WOLFF in Snake’s clothing...................
Whoo Hooo!. We’ve now come full circle. They were saying this during the campaign. “He will quit” “He will quit after 1 year.....”
They must have brought out the Jan 03, 2017 file from their DNC talking points instead of the Jan 03, 2018.
Check the “auto headlines” app.
Yeah it’s amazing!
Why would anyone put themselves through what Trump has been through if they did not genuinely want to be President?
And we are very fortunate that it appears he genuinely wants to do what is best for America.
Since Reagan, most have wanted to be President for nefarious reason.
Where is the “Not this shit again!” meme?
I I seem to recall an interview of Trump long ago with him saying he didn’t want to go into politics, but would if things got bad.
An alternate universe. Not a very nice one.
Maybe he didn’t WANT to be President, like Hillary, but felt he needed to do it for the good of the country.
People who don’t want to win don’t work as hard for victory as he did. He did so many appearances, and took so little time off.
Those awards should come out weekly.
