NYT publishes op-ed from senior white house official: "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration"

And it’s everything we’ve all assumed.

To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.


Don’t get me wrong. There are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more.


So s/he’s happy about the corporate and political corruption, the continued massacre of the middle class, and the continued funneling of money to military contractors. Basically...they’re manipulating the orange idiot to get their corrupt, anti-American agenda fulfilled. They just don’t like him much. We all fucking knew that already.

After reading this I’m just wondering what was the point of it? Who is the target audience here?

Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over.

Yeah, we get it. You like being in power. You’re corrupt chickenshit cowards who won’t do anything to actually help the people of America.

There is a quiet resistance within the administration of people choosing to put country first. But the real difference will be made by everyday citizens rising above politics, reaching across the aisle and resolving to shed the labels in favor of a single one: Americans.


Ok here’s my take...Trump’s approval is finally starting to tank with conservatives, especially the middle America morons who put him in power. So someone wrote this letter to try and alleviate their fears. But ...they’re not actually helping anyone, are they? They claim to be protecting everyone, but particularly the thing they complain about the most - trade - has been gutted already. Farmers are feeling it. These “resistance” Republicans didn’t stop that at all. And all those sanctions against Russia? Trump decimated them. Simply coming out publicly against Russia does nothing if you’re not actually punishing them.

Honestly, this letter makes me hate the Republicans even more. These fuckers just love to talk and talk and never actually DO anything.
