Over the weekend the news leaked that Donald Trump was blaming Kayleigh McEnany of all people for his ongoing downfall. This was followed by the news that McEnany has simply stopped showing up for work. So, without a press secretary for his final few days, Trump is now relying on someone named Hogan Gidley.
Hogan Gidley appeared on Fox News this morning and insisted that the only reason Donald Trump hasn’t done more to denounce the U.S. Capitol domestic terrorist attack is “because the platforms have removed him.” No really, he said this.
The mere fact that Trump was able to send Gidley on national television to deliver his message is proof that Trump could have simply gone on television himself; if Fox was willing to book Gidley, they’d certainly rather have had Trump. Instead Trump is hiding behind whatever PR flack is left in his White House, and blaming it all on Twitter. Three more days and Trump will no longer be our problem.
