The Lincoln Project, a PAC made up of former Republican advisors who opposed Trump, jumped on the stories to produce a 45-second commercial called “GOP Cribs,” the Parscales 2.4 million Shows a dollar-worthy Fort Lauderdale waterfront property, photos of which the Daily Mail released. The clip also contained footage of Parscale’s Florida condos and his and his wife’s collection of luxury cars, including a BMW X6, a Range Rover, and a Ferrari.

The ad, tailored to troll an audience off one, focused on the campaign manager instead of the candidate, strongly suggesting that Parscale was fooling Trump and getting rich on his dime.

And according to the book, the ad had the intended effect. Bender wrote that Trump, waving a printout of one of the articles about how much money Parscale’s company had made, went on a war path in Trump Tower.

When he finally located his campaign manager, “Trump unleashed a stream of insults, accusations, and expletives that seemed to contradict the basic laws of human biology that say every man must at some point take a break to breathe.” wrote Bender. He also stated, “This is my money!” and “what the f —?”

The brouhaha prompted deputy campaign manager David Bossie to step in and contain the outbreak in a private office.

At this point, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway stepped in, where she and Bossie tried to defuse the situation by explaining that not only did Parscale run away with all the money, but that his company was doing most of it Payment used advertising and marketing services.

Trump then complained, “I just hate those damn stories.”

Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner also stepped in to defend Parscale from allegations that he was trying to get away with the hard-earned money from the Trump campaign, according to Bender’s report.

“Brad can make a million dollars a month with his marketing skills and, by the way, I would be the first person to hire him,” Kushner told his father-in-law, according to the book. “You can get it for $ 30,000 a month. So you just have to calm down. ”
