It must be stressful to be the person in charge but unable to trust anyone. This is the situation Donald Trump finds himself in now, as he tries to ferret out which of his staffers betrayed him in a scathing New York Times op-ed piece. Vice President Mike Pence called out the NYT for publishing the piece anonymously and described it as a “new low.”

To point out the obvious, any new lows in journalism lately are a direct result of Trump’s own latest lowbrow talking points. Speaking of new lows, Trump insists the country would be better served if Attorney General Jeff Sessions investigates the author of the letter. Pence and Trump were not the only ones to vocalize their opinions regarding the letter.

Melania Trump characterized the letter as being the work of a saboteur, as opposed to protector, as the author of the letter implied. The statement released by Melania was likely not written by her, but it does show a united front at a time where their relationship seems to be deeply troubled. Whether or not Melania voluntarily released the statement defending her husband remains to be seen.

   

It seems strange Melania Trump would release a statement defending her husband on this matter, after several opportunities were recently taken by her to denounce his actions to the press. And then there is the obvious question, how could the author be sabotaging the country if the information contained within it is true? Unfortunately, from everything we have seen thus far, it is Donald Trump himself who is the saboteur, disrupting the day to day operation of the executive branch with his ineptness.
