Loyalty has always been an issue during the Trump presidency. It seems like many a time, someone that was supposed to be doing good work for our country, took offense to Trump and threw us all under the bus.
Chris Christie, John Bolton, William Barr, Michael Cohen, Jim Mattis…
When I talk about loyalty, I am not saying that I expected Trump supporters and people in the Trump administration to be 100% loyal to him (although that would be good to be able to get things done), but I do expect them to be 100% loyal to the country. But it’s politics and, in the end, everyone is loyal to themselves.
On the flip side of the loyalty coin, it seems like all it takes is one little disagreement, one pushback, one step out of line and Trump will go after you.
So I was not surprised that Trump went after an old ally recently – but I was surprised about who it was. This time, it was Trump’s former press secretary Kayleigh McEnany who Trump went after, calling her “Milktoast” after he said she gave out the wrong polling numbers when she was on Weasel News’ show “Outnumbered.”
The Daily Mail reported that Trump said on his Truth Social account “Kayleigh ‘Milktoast’ McEnany just gave out the wrong poll numbers on FoxNews. I am 34 points up on DeSanctimonious, not 25 up. While 25 is great, it’s not 34. She knew the number was corrected upwards by the group that did the poll. The RINOS & Globalists can have her. FoxNews should only use REAL Stars!!!”
Ouch. Looks like the love affair is over. Even being young and pretty and blonde didn’t save her from the wrath of Orange Man Bad.
In another tweet, Trump appears to be going after Weasel News as a whole. He said, “FoxNews is really pushing De Sanctimonious. He can’t win!”
Insulting people and giving them nicknames still seems to be Trump’s thing. It might have been cute and different in the beginning when he first ran for president. Now it just seems juvenile and unprofessional, especially with so much at stake, with the county circling the drain on so many things.
