I think the time for people to start taking Trump’s Truth Social posts seriously has come. He has acted on virtually everything he can act on so far. He promises a lot worse.
The latest repost from the former president and adjudicated rapist is an article from Sebastian Gorka. You remember, he was Trump’s terrorism expert who also happened to have some pretty longstanding ties to a Nazi group.
Gorka starts by claiming he already knows who the VP pick is going to be, so he conveniently leaves it out of the article. We have no reason to believe Gorka is privy to that information, but then again, Trump did endorse the article by reposting it, so…
But then the former Deputy Assistant to Trump goes on to suggest other appointments that Trump might make.
He throws out the names of quite a few MAGA loyalists: Kari Lake, Ben Carson, Dan Bongino, Michael Flynn, Newt Gingrich, Richard Grenell, Tom Homan, and Vivek Ramaswamy, to begin with.
But Gorka also suggests that Trump should appoint his lawyer, Alina Habba, to White House Counsel.
YIKES with a capital YIKES, folks.
The insanity doesn’t stop there. He’s got Steve Bannon in the bullpen, too, and good ol’ Rudy, and Bernie Kerik — basically every villain from the last decade. He wants Moms For Liberty in the Department of Education, for goodness’ sake.
And what’s he got in mind for perennial loser and ex-TV face Kari Lake, who can’t seem to win a spot as dogcatcher in Arizona? Why, she’d be overseeing election fraud for the commander-in-cheat. Because of course.
Now, don’t get me wrong: None of this is surprising. Trump has always had a penchant for picking the absolute worst people possible for the roles he has in mind. Rick Perry at the Department of Energy? Betsy DeVos at the Department of Education?
Then again, everything Trump does is ridiculous. And as much as we have no proof that anything Sebastian Gorka says is real, we also have no reason NOT to believe it… Especially since Donald Trump reposted the article Gorka put it all in.
