They work in the West Wing.
Many of the employees that make up the White House staff were entrusted by Donald J. Trump with the unique opportunity to work in the West Wing and serve the President, his agenda, the Administration and the American people.
How did they show their loyalty and gratitude? By trashing the President at every turn, leaking disparaging comments to the press, and mocking him in both private and public settings.
Their goal: to sabotage Trump’s agenda so it would never see the light of day.
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
It’s a silent coup.
Now the White House rat crew is trying to use cheesy tabloid writer Michael Wolff as their assassin. Wolff is the author of “Fire and Fury,” the trash currently masquerading as a serious book.
It’s becoming more and more clear that few people came to the White House to serve the President and American people’s agenda.
For certain, some of the staff that works in the West Wing came to the White House for the sole purpose of serving themselves: to make money, write books, get press clippings, go on CNN, blast the President and make more fake news to enrich themselves with cash. They couldn’t care less about Trump’s legislative goals for the country.
Others came with one purpose in mind: kill the President’s bold America First agenda before it could take root.
It’s the unholy alliance of all time: the daily double of political assassination.
I have several burning questions:
First, why was Wolff even allowed in the White House?
Second, who made that decision? Who gave him access?
You’re trying to run a new Administration. You’re under fire from the entire legacy media: they bash you 24/7. Do you really think somebody is going to come in and write a book on the President and say anything positive?
Why would anyone even spend time talking to him? Don’t they have more important things to do, like fix healthcare, hammer out immigration reform, pass tax cuts, fix our roads, bridges, and tunnels, check China’s steel dumping and get out of bad trade deals that pummel the American worker?
Why was Michael Wolff allowed to lounge around on sofas in the West Wing on the taxpayer dime, with key personnel asking him if he needed a hot cup of coffee or a cold soft drink?
This was a suicide mission for Trump’s agenda the day Michael Wolff gained access.
Make Steve Bannon Relevant Again
Stephen K. Bannon, the onetime White House LIC (Leaker in Chief) can’t keep himself out of the news because he’s infatuated with himself.
Any opportunity for Bannon to feign relevance, he grabs it.
We’re going to call him: Quisling Bannon.
Vidkun Quisling was a Norwegian military officer and politician who headed the government of Norway from 1941-45 after the country was occupied by Nazi Germany during World War II. When the Germans invaded Norway, Quisling seized the radio stations in Oslo, claimed in a public broadcast he was in charge, named himself Prime Minister and served for four years as Germany’s Norway puppet.
When the Nazi’s surrendered in 1945, he was tried, convicted of treason, and executed by a firing squad.
Bannon’s whole effort, starting with his quotes in Wolff’s fantasy land book, is for self-promotion. Calling Donald Trump Jr.’s actions for responding to that infamous email “treasonous,” (which is an asinine, absurd statement unto itself) and criticizing Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner continuously, is all for his own self-aggrandizement.
Bannon was not part of the campaign when Don Jr. had that meeting. So anything he says is pure speculation.
But facts don’t matter to Steve. When faced with withering relevance after his Alabama debacle, Bannon’s penchant for twisting fiction so he could have his day in the sun went beyond the pale.
Did his comments help move the America First agenda forward? Did they help someone get a better job or a wage increase?
Steve Bannon is not a strategist. He’s an opportunist.
Bannon came to the Trump campaign late, well after the nomination was settled.
He had little impact.
The people who were with the campaign in the beginning, like Corey Lewandowski, Hope Hicks, Michael Glasner, Curtis Ellis, others and myself were there when Mr. Trump came down the escalator. We were there when he was a joke in the media. We were there the day he announced his campaign and the New York Daily News put a clown suit on him and ran it on the front cover. We were there when he was at 1 percent in the polls and he had 17 other people in the race.
I don’t know what Bannon did in the campaign. I know what Kellyanne Conway did. Kellyanne ran the show. She helped win the election.
Then President-electTrump rewards Bannon by elevating him to White House strategist.
What did he accomplish? Nothing.
Travel ban rollout debacle? Obamacare repeal and replace? Nice job, Steve. Charlottesville? You gave some great advice doubling down on that one, Steve. Alabama? Another winner, Steve. NOT! Then Trump fires you, and now we get this.
The media attention is going to go on now for at least the next five days. It’s all the talking heads could discuss yesterday and today, and it’s going to be the topic du jour all day tomorrow and on Sunday talk shows. Then, for the benefit of those living under a shell, the media can recap it again on Monday.
It will be next Wednesday before somebody can have a conversation with the legacy media about something that matters. That’s seven days lost.
The administration only has six months to accomplish its agenda this year. In August, it’s over. Everybody goes out and campaigns. This President has from his State of the Union speech on January 30th until the first week in August. We are wasting valuable time. Until Trump supporters out there stop buying into these people, and this nonsense, it’s going to continue. The President needs to surround himself with true patriots that believe in his agenda and want to move the country forward. There needs to be a counter-coup, and it needs to happen now.
