The Morning Briefing: NYT's Deep State Hero and Much, Much More

Good Thursday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president participates in Rosh Hashanah call with Jewish leaders and rabbis
  • President Trump participates in a roundtable with supporters in Billings, Montana
  • The president delivers remarks at the Make America Great Again Rally

NYT Publishes anonymous “Deep State” manifesto

Deep state hero.

How does it feel to learn that there is a powerful self-interested bureaucracy asserting itself above and against the will of the people? The New York Times has helped bring the Deep State to light by publishing an op-ed from a purported “senior” administration official who heroically edits himself into a protector of the country from the morons who voted for Donald Trump to be president. Let me restate: an un-elected cog in the government machine has taken it upon himself to make sure the president cannot carry out his voter-approved mandate. THIS IS NOT HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS.

President Trump reacted to the anonymously-authored piece.

The Hill describes how the NYT piece sent “shock waves” through Washington, D.C., but the “shocking” part wasn’t the op-ed, it was that the Times published it, confirming all the things we were told were crazy conspiracy theories. CRAZY! There’s no Deep State! CRAZY CRAZY! And all of a sudden the Times is out in front, hyping up their Deep State hero with a Penthouse letter to America’s Constitution.

The hunt is on for the author. I don’t think this guy is very “senior” and I hope he quits his job, which he should never have taken since he cannot support the agenda of the man who won the presidency. If you think you need to save the people from themselves, you have no business in the government at all. The saddest part of all is that this piece of sh!t probably kept many people who wanted to go work for the president out of the administration. There were so many people who came to D.C. and wanted to work for the administration — so many people who were prepared to leave their homes across the country and bring their families here to support President Trump — and they were ignored and blocked from getting a job. I watched as people I knew for a fact were anti-Trump and actively worked against Trump during the primary and general election get good jobs in powerful agencies after the inauguration while the people who busted their butt to get the president elected back in their home states got pushed aside or ignored. True stories, I have so many of them. Call me, Trump, I’ll name names.

The NYT op-ed is part of a larger operation that also includes Bob Woodward’s “book” about how President Trump is a damaged maniac in the White House who watches the gorilla channel all day long. The purpose is to keep Trump’s “insanity” in the headlines for the midterm elections. It’s to pound into voters’ heads that Trump is UNSTABLE, MANIAC, CRAZY! Everything is falling apart, he’s NOT NORMAL, and so on. It’s all part of the midterm campaign.

Byron York has a great piece over at the Washington Examiner about the Deep State manifesto. Go read it.
