Open thread—Pigs at the trough
Remember when Obama Administration officials left service and then went onto social media trashing their former boss? No? Of course not.
But with the Trump regime, it seems de rigueur to write damning, tell-all books.
A few days ago, news broke that "Oh Lordy, there are tapes" from one-time Trump sycophant Omarosa, she of "You will bow down to Trump" fame.
Of course, we all chortled, seeing this as nothing more than a person starved for the limelight hitting out. But, as Bill Palmer wrote, we shouldn't be so quick to dismiss the recordings. And now today, this greets us.
Now, this should surprise no one. That Trump is a vile racist is a fact, with or without auditory evidence. And his fanatical core base won't care, and will actually acclaim him more, as they, too, are vile racists. However, this is one more straw on the camel's back for decent Americans, as they see the man installed in office behaving in a manner we thought we had banished. And, of course, the fact that it's coming from "loyal Omarosa" is the icing on the cake.
So, no, we don't have to invite Omarosa to the cookout. But maybe we can send her a nice fruit arrangement.
This is your open thread.
