Coup de Trump. A post I wrote a little over a year ago. Has come true. Woodward’s book reveals a silent cabal headed by generals and White House staff hell bent on keeping President Trump from hurting the country. An insider who is part of this covert operation has written an anonymous op-ed in today’s New York Times. On first blush, we can take some solace in this. However, it’s dangerous.
Sets precedents for the future which make it okay to undermine a sitting duly elected President. He was well known to those who voted for him. He has not changed. His base believes that they had the right to put him into office. They did. Journalists and generals are not elected by the people. No matter how right-minded they believe themselves to be.
The silent coup is becoming noisy now. What will it mean for the country?
