Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 05, 2018

An unnamed senior Trump official has said members of the administration are working to frustrate parts of the president's agenda to protect the country from his "worst inclinations". In a New York Times editorial, the author said President Trump's "amorality" and "impulsiveness" had led to ill-informed and reckless decisions. Mr Trump labelled the anonymous writer "gutless" and the newspaper as "phony". His press secretary said the mystery writer was a "coward" who should quit. The opinion piece comes a day after excerpts of Bob Woodward's book on the Trump White House suggested that his top officials have been engaged in an "administrative coup d'etat" to protect the nation from the president, including removing key documents from his desk before he has a chance to sign them.

Donald Trump actually posed a relevant question in a tweet today...Is this treason?

Why write such a letter. One reason is political cover. Some people in the WH are afraid of going down the toilet with Trump.

Word has it that Trump had to be restrained from assassinating foreign leaders. Who else has he wanted to kill, and where do they live?

The letter's author may be creating an alibi for the Nuremberg Trials ahead, creating a little space between themselves and the Fuhrer because it's all closer to falling apart than we know.

The timing is two months before the elections. November will be a crisis for Trump and so for the rest of us.

If you don't like my explanations, trot out yours.

This letter tells us nothing good about the state of the Executive Branch. The White House is an issue of national security. In fact, the White House seems to present several immediate and distinct issues of national security. Anyone who reads history knows what happens in the palace when the emperor goes mad.

The country has never been this weak in my lifetime.
