Holy Sh*t. This says it all. Miles Taylor of the Trump Administration explains why he’s voting Biden.
From someone who was “in the room” with Trump.
This is definitely worth 2:11 of your time.
“Comments are turned off for this video.” Ha. Yeah, I bet they are.”
“THIS. SHOULD. SCARE. EVERYONE.
Promising “Shock and awe” against the American people—from POTUS? Unheard of, unhinged, unbelievable.” ~ comment
“What we saw week in and week out, and for me, after two and a half years in that administration, was terrifying,” Miles Taylor said in a video from Republican Voters Against Trump. “We would go in to try to talk to him about a pressing national security issue – cyberattack, terrorism threat – he wasn’t interested in those things. To him, they weren’t priorities.”
And from his Op-Ed:
“Trump’s indiscipline was also a constant source of frustration. One day in February 2019, when congressional leaders were waiting for an answer from the White House on a pending deal to avoid a second government shutdown, the president demanded a DHS phone briefing to discuss the color of the Wall. He was particularly interested in the merits of using spray paint and how the steel structure should be coated. Episodes like this occurred almost weekly.“
Remember that second shutdown cost credibility and jobs. It had real effects on real people.
And it’s a clear pattern, not some claim from one source: Ghostwriter says Trump obsessed over fabric swatches as he went broke.
Business genius? Only in his ability to duck consequences. There was an almost 10 year stretch where Trump lost more money than any other taxpayer in the US.
Via Reddit, a comment: “This is an incredibly damning testimonial from someone who was “in the room” with Trump. People everywhere should be pissed – especially Californians. He told FEMA to cut off wildfire relief money to Californians because they didn’t support him politically and “weren’t his base”.
He also claims “magical authorities” to treat immigrants however he wants.
And Trump’s team promises four years of shock and awe–on Americans–if he wins, it’s “no holds barred.” That, like his wildfire rhetoric…is…just…not how democracies work.
Fiddling while Rome burns? Yes. “Let’s just round [our Covid] deaths up to 200K and focus on excess deaths.”
PS: Claiming “magical authority” is the definition of “unconstitutional.”
