Don’t Hang Your Hopes on the 'Resistance' Behind the NYT Op-Ed — America is Being Murdered Right in Front of Our Eyes

The op-ed is only further proof.

You want to know what being anonymous does? It protects you, and nobody else.  You want proof? Have a look at the cowardly, lame-ass, anonymous op-ed by a “senior official in the Trump administration” in The New York Times.  A pathetic cri de coeur penned by a con artist working for a con man inside the bunker of the White House didn’t protect immigrant children from being taken from their mothers and thrown into cages during the so-called “zero tolerance” policy on the border. Anonymous hasn’t protected the nearly500 immigrant childrenwho are still being held apart from their families by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Anonymous didn’t do anything to protect the 2,975 Americans who lost their lives in Puerto Rico as a result of Hurricane Maria last year. That storm blasted through the island ripping apart homes, destroying the electrical grid, and killing thousands. And all they got from an out of control, ignorant, arrogant president was a few rolls of paper towels.

Anonymous didn’t protect the American people from a Republican tax bill that gave massive tax cuts to billionaires and millionaires while incredibly raising taxes on some lower-income families and people from states with high state taxes. And Anonymous isn’t protecting us from Trump and Republicans who are looking to cut Social Security and Medicare to make up for the massive hole they blew in the deficit. 

Three staff attorneys from the Civil Division of the Justice Department filed a motion to remove their names from a federal lawsuit the Trump administration has joined that is attempting to gut the Affordable Care Act, including ending coverage for pre-existing conditions. Since they aren’t “senior officials” in the Trump administration, I think we can safely assume that none of these three is the anonymous author of the craven op-ed in The New York Times, who has obviously done absolutely nothing to protect the health care of Americans from Trump.
