What’s a spineless and narcissistic Trump administration officeholder to do when Trump is on the way out and the leftists are going scorched earth against anyone who supports him – especially after the assault on the Capitol?
Why you desert the country of course.
It’s self over country for these political parasites which is really the definition of what a politician is.
Does it matter if they are making the country less secure for two weeks and are showing our enemies that the government weak, in chaos and disarray?
All that matters is that they try to preserve their reputation.
They have to do what they can to make sure they can be employed in the future.
They have to protect themselves from having Antifa show up at their homes.
And, of course, they need to put themselves in a position to be able to write a tell-all book so everyone knows “What Trump is Really Like.”
Those are going to be popping up all over the place pretty soon.
So far, the list of deserters includes: Former Attorney General William Barr (good riddance, loser) who resigned in December; and more recently Mitch McConnell’s ineffective wife, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao (what has she even done?); Deputy National Security Adviser, Matt Pottinger; First Lady Melania Trump’s Chief of Staff Stephanie Grisham; Acting Chairman of White House Council of Economic Advisers Tyler Goodspeed; White House Social Secretary Rickie Niceta; European and Russian Affairs Director Ryan Tully; Assistant Secretary for Intelligence and Security John Costello; Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Matthews; Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Elsinore F. McCance-Katz; Eric S. Dreiband who led the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division; Senior Director for Middle Eastern and North African Affairs Rob Greenway; Senior Director for Weapons and Mass Destruction and Biodefense Anthony Ruggiero; Senior Director for Defense Policy Mark Vandroff; Senior Director for African Affairs Erin Walsh; Education Secretary Betsy DeVos; and Mick Mulvaney, Special Envoy to Northern Ireland and Former Chief of Staff.
What about the Special Envoy to Southern Ireland? Is he still on board???
These weak politicians couldn’t possibly stay for a few more days because the leftist media would admonish them for it. This way, resigning gives them a shot at having some kind of future life in politics or the private sector. They are trying to redeem themselves in the eyes of the leftists.
I think, however, that they underestimate the hate on the left. I don’t think it will be easy for them to move on. I believe that the leftists will blackball Trump staff and supporters for life. The only thing they have open to them in the near future that I can see are their book deals so they better get a lot of money up front.
