Filled with snakes

More on Trump’s campaign to purge all the “bad people” by which he means people who don’t kiss his ass four times a day:

In reporting this story, I have been briefed on, or reviewed, memos and lists the president received since 2018 suggesting whom he should hire and fire. Most of these details have never been published.

A well-connected network of conservative activists with close ties to Trump and top administration officials is quietly helping develop these “Never Trump”/pro-Trump lists, and some sent memos to Trump to shape his views, per sources with direct knowledge.

Members of this network include Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and Republican Senate staffer Barbara Ledeen.

The big picture: Since Trump’s Senate acquittal, aides say the president has crossed a psychological line regarding what he calls the “Deep State.” He feels his government — from Justice to State to Defense to Homeland Security — is filled with “snakes.” He wants them fired and replaced ASAP.

Again…it’s all personal. There is no detachment, no ability (much less willingness) to step back and think “this person opposes my plans and actions but is a talented and ethical person anyway.” The only test is pro-Trump or not. The nots are all evil.

The details are creepy as hell – fanatics writing memos for Trump accusing current staff of horrors and recommending clowns from Fox News and other media outlets to replace them. It’s as if the toddlers have taken over.
