Roger Ailes, a man who recently lost his job because he "allegedly" had some trouble refraining from sexually harassing his female employees, plans to help President Trump Make America['s White People] Great Again—according to the Times, he's helping the World's Classiest Tangerine prepare for his debate with Hillary Clinton next month. Good luck with that!

Well, maybe we shouldn't be so cocky. Ailes was a political strategist long before he created the Sean Hannity-filled dumpster fire that is Fox News—he was an advisor to Richard Nixon in 1968, and coached both Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush in elections they won. Trump doesn't seem much like the coachable type, but if Ailes is talented enough to pull a Fairy Godmother and turn Trump into a beautiful policy-spewing princess in time for the September 26 debate, there could be trouble.

Still, as the Times points out, it's a bit—unseemly that the Trump campaign's hired someone a female former employee called, "a predator," and who allegedly fired a longterm anchor because she wouldn't sleep with him. You'd think a campaign whose candidate was struggling hard to appeal to female voters would think twice about shaking hands with such ("alleged") slime, but honestly at this point nothing's surprising.

It's also unclear just how long Ailes has been helping the Trump campaign, which is important considering Ailes previously ran a major news channel that had a hand in propelling Trump during the primaries. Ailes resigned his post on July 21st (and received $40 million in severance); a few days later, Trump told NBC News he wasn't going to comment on whether Ailes would advise his campaign, even though "a lot of people are thinking he's going to run my campaign." HM.

The Trump camp, meanwhile, says Ailes won't be helping Trump with the debates. "He is not advising Mr. Trump or helping with debate prep," campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks told the Hollywood Reporter. "They are longtime friends, but he has no formal or informal role in the campaign."

Maybe they're just coming up with plans for their new television channel assuming Trump gets walloped (PLEASE GOD) in November.
