Coup against Trump gains traction after John McCain’s funeral

The irony in the op-ed from the NYT's anonymous White House source attacking President Donald Trump, is glaring and massive, says journalist Glenn Greenwald.

    While Trump is accused of being “anti-democratic”, the anonymous writer touts membership of an “unelected cabal that covertly imposes their own ideology with zero democratic accountability, mandate or transparency” on American voters.

    On Thursday, two more anonymous “senior White House officials” boasted about “dozens and dozens” of other White House appointed bureaucrats that are carrying out “a resistance from the inside” against the Trump administration, Axios reported.

    This sadly also confirms everything Trump has been saying about the deep state conspiring against him. On Thursday morning, Trump tweeted that he was going to start declassifying evidence of the deep state’s many crimes.

    The anonymous op-ed ghost chose the aftermath of John McCain’s funeral to launch the attack on Trump.

    The problem however is everyone on the right and left hates John McCain. The level of hatred on social media and in comment sections across the internet after McCain’s death was clearly bipartisan.

    Left-wing journalist Caitlin Johnstone was temporarily banned from Twitter over her tweet that had gone viral.

    Fox News had to shut down their entire comment section because of negative rants and insults after McCain’s death, both on YouTube and on FoxNews.com.

    Contrary to the media’s propaganda, McCain was hardly a unifying figure. If the NYT op-ed writer had contact with people outside of the swamp, they would have known this.

    The Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain, a 527 Political Action Committee, was formed in 1997. During his time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, McCain was a “Manchurian candidate” the group said.

    They believe that McCain was an agent of the Vietnamese, and in 2008, a flier claimed that McCain was a “Hanoi Hilton songbird” who collaborated with the enemy.

    In May, 2018, a Fox News analyst, retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney was terminated from the network for mentioning the charges against McCain, calling the senator “Songbird John”.
