Report: Former Clinton Adviser Dick Morris Could Join Trump Campaign
Dick Morris, the former Clinton adviser turned Clinton critic, is in talks to join Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, according to one report.
According to New York Magazine, if hired, Morris would join the Trump campaign’s “Hillary unit” to help go after the likely Democratic nominee.
“It’s on the table,” a Trump adviser is quoted as saying about Morris. “Some of the most important info about the Clintons is 20 years old.”
Neither Morris nor Hope Hicks, a spokeswoman for Trump, immediately responded to a request for comment from The Daily Caller on Tuesday.
Morris is a colorful character who first came to fame as a political consultant to former President Bill Clinton. In 1996, he resigned after facing accusations of frequenting a prostitute. In the years after, Morris, disillusioned with the Clintons, became a frequent guest on cable news.
In recent years, Morris has been mocked for his wildly-wrong political predictions, including saying Hillary Clinton would run against Condoleezza Rice in the 2008 presidential election and that Mitt Romney would win the 2012 election in a landslide.
The National Enquirer recently announced they had hired Morris as chief political commentator and correspondent.
