Ex-Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale says he and his wife are ‘stronger than ever’

US HEADLINES:

President Donald Trump‘s former campaign manager, Brad Parscale, on Tuesday blamed his September meltdown on being fired and losing two children before he claimed that he and his wife have ‘never been happier’ despite her saying he was suicidal and tried to hurt her. 

Early last month, lawyers for Parscale said he was not suicidal, didn’t fire a gun and posed about as much threat as ‘a guy that just came from a Jimmy Buffett concert’ during an armed siege at his Florida home. 

Lawyers for the ousted Trump aide asked a judge to block access to his psychiatric records, arguing that the wild September 27 stand-off was not a ‘calamitous’ mental health episode because Parscale never threatened anyone.

They also questioned his wife Candice’s version of events, revealing that she had admitted in a signed affidavit that she was ‘under the influence of alcohol’ when she fled their waterfront mansion in just a skimpy bikini, telling cops her husband was suicidal and that he had struck her during previous bouts of violence.

During an interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, Parscale discussed the incident, saying: ‘My wife and I are in a much better place now. My family is in a great place.’

Parscale then said that he and Candice ‘went through a very stressful time for five years’. 

‘We lost two children that we buried,’ Parscale said without elaborating. ‘We were completely attacked by the left, the right, the media. And I got to that place and my wife was worried about me. And she helped. She was there every day by my side.

‘And I love her for it. And we have never been happier. I’m just glad that I moved on. I tried my best for the American people,’ he added. 

MacCallum then asked Parscale if he feels healthy now.

‘I feel like I’m healthy. I’m getting better every day. And the stress, this is the last piece of it appeared to have history remember what was accurate. And I appreciate telling the American people that because I love my wife and she loves me. 

‘She was the first one there right afterwards and the last one I will ever see.’ 

MacCallum then asked if Parscale had spoken to the president recently. 

‘I have not. And it’s pretty hurtful but it’s as much my fault as it is his. I love that family. And I gave every inch of my life to him,’ Parscale said.

During the September incident, Parscale – demoted from his job as Trump 2020 campaign manager over the summer – eventually emerged from his home shirtless and carrying a beer before being tackled to the ground when he ignored orders to get on the floor.

He was involuntarily detained under Florida’s Baker Act for three days and slapped with a risk protection order, allowing police to take away his seven handguns, two long rifles and two shotguns.

DailyMail.com previously revealed officer bodycam video covering the entire episode, including Parscale complaining afterwards that his wife set the confrontation up so she could empty their bank accounts and leave while he was locked up.

Parscale also revealed on camera that the argument began because Candice had been refusing to have sex with him for months, vowing to divorce her as soon as he was free. 

However the pair patched things when he was released from the hospital, issuing coordinated statements in an effort to play down her allegations of domestic abuse.

Parscale said he was stepping away from his digital strategist role with the Trump campaign due to ‘overwhelming stress’.

Candice denied that her 6ft 7in partner was a domestic abuser despite telling officers that he had struck her during a previous fight.

‘The statements I made on Sunday have been misconstrued, let it be clear my husband was not violent towards me that day or any day prior,’ she told Politico at the time.

It was widely reported in July that Parscale was demoted because a much-trumpeted rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, drew a dismal crowd and left the president fuming.

However DailyMail.com revealed that Parscale was also subject to an internal audit investigating claims that as much as $40million went missing from Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.

The president’s deputy press secretary Ken Farnaso denied the story, saying: ‘There is no investigation, no audit, and there never was.’

Parscale is yet to face any criminal charges over the siege however a judge previously gave police permission to seize his cache of weapons.
