In an ugly interview, one of Donald Trump’s former aides isn’t just burning bridges, she’s throwing out verbal hand grenades.
She says he’s likely to win again.
But everything else this former Trump aide just said will make your blood boil.
Alyssa Farah recently gifted CNN’s Jake Tapper with an interview that would delight any liberal Trump hating “journalist.”
Calling a second term for Trump a “nightmare scenario,” she’s also adding fuel to the fire for Trump’s biggest critics.
Farah was the White House Director of Strategic Communications and Trump’s assistant in 2020.
Now her main focus seems to be on tearing into her former boss.
She told Tapper, “This is a man who has challenged our institutions near to the breaking point. And for those who have worked with Trump, the fear is not just his undermining American democracy, but once back in the White House, also undoing the American experiment.”
Hmm, maybe she has her presidents mixed up?
Because destroying America sounds an awful lot like what Joe Biden’s administration has been working on.
During the short interview Tapper asked her, “You think that he will try to impose some form of autocracy?”
Farah replied saying, “I think that he absolutely would. There were things he wanted to do when he was in power the first time that were well beyond the scope of what the US president should be able to do, but oftentimes it was simply like the motivation of hoping to win reelection that kept him from doing things.”
Thanks for explaining political science 101 for us Ms. Farah.
There was literally never a president in the history of the United States who was able to accomplish everything he wanted to do.
There’s also a reason “lame duck” is a political term.
When pressed for examples of what Trump “will do,” she started listing things Democrats have been doing for years, including “weaponizing the Justice Department against political opponents.”
Oh, do you suppose he would send the FBI after parents attending their local school board meetings?
Oh, no, actually, Biden already tried that one recently.
In fact, if you want to talk about weaponizing federal agencies, Trump would be hard pressed to come up with anything a Democrat hasn’t already tried.
Remember when Obama “weaponized” the IRS to go after Conservative Tea Party organizations?
Farah also mentioned that Trump might go after the free press.
What free press? Oh, you mean the one currently controlled by Biden’s Centers for Disease Control.
Seems the “free press” might be more threatened by Trump’s Truth Social than his winning another term as president.
Then Farah dropped the ultimate fear-inducing threat, saying Trump would “certainly be open to using the military for political reasons as well.”
Oh really, based on what?
We already have members of the National Guard driving school buses as the current administration completely fumbles handling the Covid-19 pandemic.
Or, let’s look at an old example, remember that time Bill Clinton started dropping bombs in a small middle eastern country to distract the world from news coming out about a certain intern?
So theoretically, any president could pull a lot of ridiculous shenanigans. Most do.
But based on past performance it seems likely Trump will disappoint Leftists by doing something really underwhelming like kickstarting the economy and bringing gas prices down.
Or he might do his job and clean up federal agency regulations.
Maybe he would even enforce the laws and manage our southern border.
No doubt, he will pull off something sure to traumatize Leftists if he were to win another term in the White House.
