Donald Trump’s election was devastating news to the entrenched establishment in Washington, D.C.
Their good ol’ boy club was issued a major blow overnight, and they went on the attack immediately.
And one high-ranking GOP official just revealed his “shadow government” plot to take down Trump.
Since day one of President Trump’s campaign, “Never Trump” Republicans have been working overtime to drag Trump through the mud.
They have gone so far as to work with Obama’s entrenched deep state operatives to leak government secrets they saw as negative for Trump.
But now the anti-Trump rhetoric coming from these “Republicans” has reached a new low.
Peter Wehner, former advisor to President George W. Bush, and anti-Trump loyalist, is so angry at Trump supporters sticking by the President that he is leading a dangerous plot to destroy him.
Wehner is calling for Republican officials to form a “shadow government” to undermine President Trump and his agenda.
As reported by Breitbart:
“Peter Wehner, the “Never Trumper” and former George W. Bush adviser, is so distraught that President Donald Trump’s supporters are sticking by Trump that he is calling for Republican officials to form a “shadow government” to undermine Trump and his agenda.
Writing in the New York Times, of course, Wehner declares “what’s required now is a comprehensive, consistent case by Republican leaders at the state and national levels that signals their opposition to the moral ugliness and intellectual incoherence of Mr. Trump.”
“Rather than standing by the president, they should consider themselves liberated and offer a constructive, humane and appealing alternative to him,” Wehner writes in his “Sunday Review” column. “They need to think in terms of a shadow government during the Trump era, with the elevation of alternative leaders on a range of matters.”
He says “this approach involves risk and may not work” and predicts it will provoke “an angry response” from the “Breitbart-alt-right-talk-radio part of the party.”
“So be it,” Wehner continues, adding that “Republicans who don’t share Mr. Trump’s approach have to hope that his imploding presidency has created an opening to offer a profoundly different vision of America, one that is based on opportunity, openness, mobility and inclusion.””
Wehner has been working behind the scenes with his “Never Trump” allies like Bill Kristol to shut down the President for a long time.
But Trump is just one person on his long list of conservatives that he’s been targeting for many years.
Throughout former President Obama’s presidency, Wehner used every opportunity he could find to bash conservatives in the Tea Party.
Wehner will attack any movement or person that is a threat to his neo-conservative and crony capitalist agenda.
It was people like Peter Wehner who perverted the Republican brand of the Reagan-era and nearly killed the entire party.
He is an elitist establishment mouthpiece who spends his free time vehemently working to shut down any person, or movement, who tries to bring the Republican Party back to the days of Reagan.
Thankfully, with the election of Donald Trump, his work doesn’t seem to be very effective.
What do you think?
Will the shadow government keep trying to take down Trump?
