President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Brad Parscale, took to social media on Friday to tease an upcoming 30-minute interview with Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum “next week.”
“Happy Friday. Going on Fox News next week for a 30 minute special with Martha MacCallum. Will be my first time on TV since June. So much to finally say!” Parscale tweeted along with a photo of him posing next to a pirate figure.

In July, the Trump campaign raised eyebrows when officials suddenly announced that Parscale was being replaced as campaign manager by veteran Republican strategist Bill Stepien.
At the time, President Trump said that Parscale, 44, would remain a senior adviser to the campaign and would continue to be in charge of its digital operations.
“I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump Campaign Manager. Brad Parscale, who has been with me for a very long time and has led our tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a Senior Advisor to the campaign,” he wrote on Twitter. “Both were heavily involved in our historic 2016 win, and I look forward to having a big and very important second win together.”
Unnamed Trump campaign officials said they were caught off-guard by the move but not entirely surprised since Trump had three campaign managers who ran his 2016 effort.
“This doesn’t surprise anyone who knows POTUS and how he wants his campaign run,” one insider told Fox News.
Bodycam footage released by the Fort Lauderdale Police Department shows officers slamming Parscale to the ground after he appears to calmly surrender himself.
“Listen, I’m not trying to kill myself. She’s lying,” Parscale can be heard telling an approaching officer, refuting what he believes his wife, Candice Parscale, told officers.
As they approach, one asks Parscale what was going on, he calmly replied, “So, she started saying all this sh*t –“ — before officers suddenly moved in on him and slammed him to the ground.
“Jesus! I didn’t do anything!” Parscale can be heard saying.
Earlier footage showed Candice Parscale, who was wrapped in a bath towel, told police her husband was “acting crazy.” She said had had a handgun and that at one point she saw him cock it and then heard a loud boom.
After he was arrested, the former Trump campaign manager was transported to a local hospital under provisions of the Baker Act, which authorizes authorities to force someone deemed to be a threat to themselves or others to be detained for a psychological evaluation for up to 72 hours.
A detective told the Miami Herald he could smell what appeared to be alcohol on Parscale when he was arrested.
Separately — and prophetically, perhaps — Parscale warned in February that Democrats would “cheat” to steal the election from the president.
“They are going to cheat,” Parscale said during a Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) panel discussion at the organization’s annual meeting in National Harbor, Md.
“Trust me, I saw what they did in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019,” the digital czar said. “They are not going to wake up in 2020 and say, ‘Let’s play fair now.’”
