Senior aide attacks 'amoral' and 'erratic' Donald Trump

Senior aide attacks 'amoral' and 'erratic' Donald Trump

Shortly after The New York Times published an anonymous piece from a senior Trump administration official that takes apart the President and suggests he is not in charge of his own White House, MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this: "I can't imagine anything more finely engineered to drive the president absolutely mad than that op-ed".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders branded the piece "pathetic, reckless, and selfish" and condemned the Times for publishing it.

"President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader", said the author of op-ed titled "I am part of the resistance inside the Trump administration".

"You have somebody stealing something off the president's desk in order to prevent him from making a decision", said Kerry, who served under President Barack Obama.

Erick Erickson, the conservative commentator, wrote that "a dear friend of mine who works for President Trump tells me he loves the guy, but that they all spend an inordinate amount of time stopping his worst impulses".

"That is cold comfort to most Americans who count on the president as the person who will make the ultimate decision".

"We fully recognise what is happening". "We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers".

And Trump's "impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective" management style, the writer claims, has brought disaster most of the time - and most Cabinet officials 'are working to insulate their operations from his whims'.

"This isn't the work of the so-called deep state".

American Horror Story: Apocalypse trailer features familiar faces from Ryan Murphy anthology
Apocalypse is going to be the best season yet and judging by the brand new trailer that's just dropped - we're in for a treat. The season is being billed as a crossover for two previous seasons: Murder House and Coven .

This op-ed thus supports the narrative pushed by Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury, and Bob Woodward, author of the forthcoming Fear, that have made similar claims about Trump aides undermining him while believing that he is incompetent and risky.

Sipa USA/NewscomThere's a high-profile resister lurking in President Trump's White House.

President Donald Trump is calling journalist Bob Woodward's explosive new book "nasty stuff", denying certain scenes in the book occurred.

Former Nixon White House Counselor John Dean said that it's very likely that Kelly and other officials won't resign because they fear what Trump would do in their absence. There is a quiet resistance within the administration of people choosing to put country first.

The newspaper describes the author of the unsigned column only as "a senior official in the Trump administration". The anonymous author was gutless, the president said.

Trump said Wednesday that such a demand was "never discussed" and accused Woodward of writing false and "scandalous" things about other presidents, including George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Woodward's book has been anticipated for weeks, and current and former White House officials estimate that almost all their colleagues cooperated with the famed Watergate journalist.

The piece was published online Wednesday by The New York Times.

One might have to look back to the Ronald Reagan or even Calvin Coolidge administration to find stories that parallel the extent to which this essay writer declares President Trump incompetent for the office.
