Former White House And DOJ Officials Disgusted By Acting Attorney General Whitaker Kissing Trump’s A**


Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker disgraced the office he holds on Wednesday when he slobberingly praised President Donald Trump during a televised Cabinet meeting, resulting in former White House and Justice Department officials to express disgust.

Trump has repeatedly forced Cabinet members to praise him during such meetings, and this one was no different as Whitaker opened the groveling by praising Trump for staying in Washington during the holidays while attacking Democrats for going on vacation.

“Sir, Mr. President, I will start by highlighting the fact you stayed in DC over the holidays, giving up Christmas with your family, New Year’s with your family trying to bring an end to this shutdown and secure the southern border while some members of Congress went on vacation,” Whitaker said. “You have demonstrated your dedication to delivering on this critical issue for our country and for the American people.”

Whitaker went on to spout lies about Trump’s wall and how it will stop drugs and illegal immigration even though studies show that a wall will do nothing of the sort.

Of course, Democrats were not the only ones who took a break over the holidays. Republicans did as well, including many Senate Republicans. And despite Whitaker’s clear attempt to blame Democrats for the shutdown, Trump took complete ownership of the government shutdown last month during a televised meeting with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

Furthermore, Democrats were not even in control of the Senate and House, and thus, had no power to gavel either side of Congress into session. Republicans were the ones who made the schedule and they were the ones who initiated the holiday break. Period.

It should also be pointed out that Trump was not forced to be separated from his family. They could have chosen to remain in Washington with him. They chose to go to Florida without him instead.

In response to Whitaker’s unprecedented ass-kissing, former White House and Justice Department officials and employees and former and current lawmakers expressed utter disgust, especially since Whitaker is biased against the Russia investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Former White House staffer in the Carter Administration, James Fallows, also chimed in.

And other former White House staffers responded.

Clearly, Whitaker is nothing but a Trump toady who should be forced to recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation or resign. He is unfit for public office, as is anyone else who willfully sucks up to Trump. This is the kind of behavior seen in authoritarian nations, not the United States.
