Trump Blasted by His Former Chief of Staff at DHS

Miles Taylor, who served as Chief of Staff at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under Donald Trump, writes a scorching op-ed in the Washington Post about Trump's incompetence and how dangerous Trump is for America.

Just when I think we've heard it all, I learn somthing new about Donald Trump that flat out disgusts me even more. This one is just mind-boggling:

Top DHS officials were regularly diverted from dealing with genuine security threats by the chore of responding to these inappropriate and often absurd executive requests, at all hours of the day and night. One morning it might be a demand to shut off congressionally appropriated funds to a foreign ally that had angered him, and that evening it might be a request to sharpen the spikes atop the border wall so they’d be more damaging to human flesh (“How much would that cost us?”). .

How utterly sickening. Here's a video of Taylor delivering his criticism.

    and the corresponding ad by Republicans against Trump is powerful and should help defeat Trump. Whether it will or not, is still to be seen. There has been so much negative information on Trump that you have to wonder how anyone would vote for him; yet, still he persists strong enough he could steal this election.

    is a feature for most of the cult. Their response would be quizzical look and a demand to what is the problem.

    simply because it's so extreme and laughably ugly they can say he was just joking

    He was just joking about sharpening the spikes.  He. Was just joking when he wrote this.

    Love the underline.  It's so high school it might as well be

    For my part.  Not really that important.
