Trump’s Former Press Secretary is Now on His List of Enemies.
Donald Trump has certainly come to be known for handling things like a mob boss, hasn’t he? If we learned anything throughout his Presidency, it’s that the man expected absolute, unquestioned loyalty from the people in his inner circle and wasn’t shy about refusing to return that loyalty. As a result of course, there are a laundry list of people who have been left in the aftermath of the Trump administration with little to show for it and a boss who is more than willing to throw them under the bus without a second thought.
Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany now joins the names on that list.
David Jackson with USA Today writes:
“Donald Trump has turned on another former loyalist, this time former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
“The RINOS & Globalists can have her. FoxNews should only use REAL Stars!!!” Trump said late Tuesday on his Truth Social website, drawing criticism from conservatives who have normally been sympathetic to the uber-aggressive former president…
…McEnany, now a Fox News host and commentator, has not commented directly on Trump’s attack. In her time at the White House, she was an outspoken defender of Trump, including during his protest of the 2020 election…”
RINOs…Globalists…At some point, you have to honestly wonder how many bridges Trump is able to burn before he runs out of anyone even remotely in his corner? But if we’re being honest, it’s just as telling about the people who continue to associate with him as it is about the former President. Have they not seen the writing on the wall at this point? Do they not realize what they’re getting themselves into when they make the decision to align themselves with him? They’re so desperate for power and the amplification of their name that they don’t care what it takes, and this is the result.
I have no sympathy for McEnany, and I’m sure no one else does either. Much like Pence, Cruz, Graham, and others, this is the bed they made and now they get to lie in it. If it came down to it, we all know Donald Trump would be more than willing to bring the entire Republican Party down with him if need be without a second thought. He is simply not wired to care at all about those around him or goals outside of his own personal desire for power and redemption.
As the election season rolls along, it’s going to be interesting to see who else is added to the list of his potential targets. Trump will be able to rely on the base to get him through the primary, but what’s he going to do when he needs the help of the powerful in the Republican Party to get further? At some point, you have to wonder if they’d rather have Joe Biden instead of him and for many of them, I bet that’s the case.
