Trump just issued a delusional response to today’s anonymous New York Times Op-Ed

Today, The New York Times opinion section published an editorial written by an anonymous senior official in the Trump administration in which the mystery man or woman gives the country a glimpse into just how chaotic things have become in the White House.


The piece admits that administration officials are basically running a shadow government, wherein they intentionally foil some of Trump’s worst ideas and influence him by controlling the information he receives.

“The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” the anonymous writer claims.

The writer admits that they support much of Trump’s agenda but that officials have had to step in numerous times to torpedo Trump’s more “misguided impulses.” The president is described “amoral” and lacking “principles” He’s erratic, unreliable, and rambling and many of his aides are actively working against his horrible foreign policy goals.

Now, Trump himself has responded to the damning op-ed in a predictable fashion.

“This is what we have to deal with,” he whined. “And you know…the dishonest media because you people deal with it as well as I do. But it’s really a disgrace. I will say this, nobody has done what this administration has done in terms of getting things passed and getting things through.”

He went on to list his so-called accomplishments, doing his pathetic, recurring bit where he pretends that his presidency has been anything more than an abject failure.

Trump then pivoted to attacking the anonymous official and The New York Times as “failing” and called the official “gutless.” He ended his borderline incoherent, brag-filled rant by insisting that he will win the 2020 election.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee also released a response to the editorial, in which she trotted out her usual smear tactics. She too called the official “gutless” then aped Trump by listing his imagined presidential victories.

The concerted effort to discredit the official lends further credibility to the editorial and the fact that Trump and his people aren’t screeching about “fake news” proves that they believe the editorial is legitimate.
