A GOP consultant who was once asked to head up communications for now-President Donald Trump tweeted out a laundry list of suggestions to the media Saturday morning on how to best push back at a White House administration that continues to threaten them.
According to writer and media consultant Cheri Jacobus, "The days of pretending" what is happening under Trump isn't "serious" is over and it is time for a concerted push-back.
At the top of her Twitter feed, Jacobus proves her bonafides as a conservative in good standing, providing a screen-shot of a message from former Trump adviser Jim Dornan, asking her to work for the, saying " We need a top notch communications director."
As Jacobus' tweets reveal, she not only is not a part of the Trump team but that she is appalled at what has transpired during the presidential campaign and how the Trump White House has conducted itself.
What she has done is call on those who are under attack by Trump and his advocates, to "unite" with others to stop the bullying.
