n the Guardian today, Martin Pengelly reviews the forthcoming book The Enemy of the People by CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, and there are some doozy quotes from the book, which HarperCollins has scheduled for release on June 11. Pengelly writes that Acosta’s White House sources:


are often blunt in their assessment of their boss. A “senior White House official” tells Acosta: “The president’s insane.” A “former White House national security official” says staffers were not sure the president had not been “compromised” by Russia.

Well, duuuhhhh. The White House staff knows Trump is crazy, completely dishonest, and likely a Russian asset. But they still want to be there. They still work every day for their spoiled and demented would-be tyrant, so that they can — do what? get rich? gain power? satisfy their other deep cravings?

Whatever it is these staffers want, we have to make sure they don’t get it once Trump goes down in flames.
