Dana Perino called out the unnamed White House official Wednesday on The Five who penned a New York Times opinion piece blasting President Trump. The piece, titled “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” is written by an anonymous senior official who said other top White House officials are “working diligently from within to frustrate parts of [President Trump’s] agenda and his worst inclinations.” Perino, who served as White House press secretary under President George W. Bush, called the author of the op-ed “extremely self-indulgent.” “You should not be lapping up the benefits of being a senior administration official, no doubt while scouting for lucrative opportunities for when you leave your post.” President Trump addressed the piece during a meeting with sheriffs from across the country at the White House, calling it “gutless.” “If I weren’t here, I believe the New York Times probably wouldn’t exist,” he said. Perino said that something about the release of the op-ed is suspicious, given that it was published just a day after excerpts of veteran journalist Bob Woodward’s book on Trump’s White House were published by The Washington Post. “If you are this person, you really should resign tonight,” she said. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted a statement regarding the story Wednesday evening, agreeing with Perino’s sentiment. “This coward should do the right thing and resign,” Sanders wrote.
Agreed… Dana Perino is spot on here. So, kudos to her for calling out whoever the heck this is. The whole idea of a treasonous almost shadow-like entity within the White House trying to undermine the President, who was duly elected by the people, should be terrifying to everyone regardless of political party affiliation or persuasion. Hopefully this loser is found and fired soon…and IF he is guilty of any criminal wrongdoing, also charged for those crimes. Newsflash to whoever this is.. You don’t work for Trump. You work for US; we-the-people. We pay your salary. Like Dana said.. If this person really exists, and thinks all of this, then he/she should resign immediately.
