‘Very pissed off’ Trump is ‘champing at the bit’ to attack former aide who wrote scathing tell-all book: report

Published

Former White House aide Cliff Sims’ new book “Team of Vipers,” which paints a withering portrait of what it’s like to work in the Trump administration, has apparently caught President Donald Trump’s attention.

White House sources tell Politico that Trump is “very pissed off” at Sims for writing his book, which is one of a number of scathing tell-alls that have depicted a White House in constant chaos largely due to the mercurial management style of the president himself.

“The president is sort of champing at the bit to tap this guy and tweet something to the effect of, ‘I didn’t know who this guy was. He taped videos,'” one former White House official tells the publication.

However, other White House advisers have cautioned Trump against attacking Sims, as they say it will only give him more publicity and will also be “beneath” a man of Trump’s stature.

Trump in the past has lashed out at former aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman, who wrote a tell-all book portraying the president as mentally unstable that was published last year.

However, another White House ally tells Politico that Trump keeps hiring people like Sims and Omarosa who have reputations for not being trustworthy.

“The president’s been warned about lots of hires that shouldn’t have happened, and he’s still hired them,” the person said.

‘Sore loser’ doesn’t do justice to the epic tantrum Trump is having: columnist

Writing in the Washington Post this Tuesday, columnist Dana Milbank says that when it comes to Donald Trump's stint in the White House, it's all over except for the pouting.

"Back during the Florida recount in 2000, George W. Bush loyalists made T-shirts altering the Gore-Lieberman logo to say 'Sore-Loserman.' But 'sore loser' doesn’t do justice to the epic tantrum President Trump has performed to assuage his narcissistic injury. Trump-Pence has become Rump-Nonsense," Milbank writes.

According to Milbank, Trump's loss by more than 6 million votes is just the beginning regarding his current losing streak. He has lost in every single post-election ballot-counting challenge, and he's also losing key Republican allies, such as Chris Christie, who called Trump’s legal team’s antics a “national embarrassment.”

Trump’s delusional supporters will rage and scream no matter what — and Democrats should stop trying to make peace

Published

on

Even after the landslide defeat of Donald Trump, Republicans across the board continue to be terrified by Trump's disciples. Fear of the Red Hats has always been one of the primary reasons why the rest of Trump's party has refused to speak out against his ongoing horror show. It's not the only reason, but it's one of the more potent ones.

It's fascinating to observe how thoroughly they've painted themselves into a corner. While leading Republicans are in love with Trump's policies, not to mention the cover the Red Hats gave them to pass their agenda, they're privately disgusted by the president's total lack of personal restraint and constant self-sabotage.
