Reince Priebus, the head of the RNC, went on Fox News' On The Record with Greta Van Susteren Monday afternoon, and told her that the firing of Corey Lewandowski, Trump's campaign manager was an excellent move, one that shows the professionalism that has evolved and signaled a move to beating Hillary Clinton.

That's what he went with.

When a campaign manager is fired after successfully leading their candidate to win the GOP presidential nomination, that signals yuuuge problems in a campaign.

But Priebus decided to stick his head in the sand and make believe all is well. It's hard to continually take cow manure and turn it into a chocolate cream pie.

Instead Priebus said, "I think it's a good sign, I think for the campaign. Paul Manafort is a pro....people should look at it as a good thing."

Greta wondered where the loyalty was to Lewandowski for getting Trump this far.

Reince said "there was a lot of loyalty" but we have to look at the "future of our country." So did Priebus mean that Corey was endangering America's future?

He also said there could be up to four Supreme Court seats up for grabs during the next presidency and said, "This pivot, this seriousness that you're seeing right now - this is good."

This is a new direction for the campaign,” he said. "This is sort of the professionalization that continues. There’s no way to work a presidential campaign with competing factions. It just doesn’t work. There’s four to five months left."

Greta thought it looked like a firing.

He continued, "To me, when I see something like this, I see a pivot to the general, a seriousness to the general, that looks good for getting this campaign to a place where he can compete with Hillary Clinton.”

“I thought it was very classy how he handled today."
