Trump just called for the anonymous NYT Op-Ed writer to be turned over to the government

President Trump’s rage over the anonymous Op-Ed penned by one of his top officials that ran in The New York Times opinion section today is growing with each passing hour. He’s seething at what he sees as a personal betrayal.


The piece in question paints Trump as an erratic, unhinged loon incapable of executing his duties responsibly. The mystery writer claims that Trump’s aides are effectively running a shadow government without his knowledge or consent, in which they choose for themselves which of his orders to ignore and which information to withhold from him.

Trump has already attacked the Times and anonymous official, calling them “failing” and the official “gutless.” Now, he’s stepped up his attempts to undermine the editorial.

The president took to Twitter and questioned whether or not the official really exists and floated the possibility that it could be a hoax created by The Times.

He doubled down on his “gutless” insult and then made the absurd, authoritarian demand that the Times “turn him/her over to the government.” Of course, it’s highly unlikely the Times will reveal their secret source and Trump doesn’t have any real means of compelling them to do so.

The editorial didn’t reveal any classified information or endanger national security. At this point, the only person posing a clear threat to national security is Trump himself, who is clearly unfit for office.

While it’s unclear if we will end up finding out the identity of the anonymous official, some internet detectives have already uncovered one interesting possibility.
