Donald Trump was not happy yesterday when his former Department of Homeland Security Chief of Staff Miles Taylor endorsed Joe Biden and wrote a scathing op-ed in The Washington Post that was a damning indictment of Trump and his record during his presidency to date.
The president was so unhappy that he expended the energy to launch a Twitter attack belittling Taylor as a “DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEE” of so limited importance that he was beneath his level of perception.
Many thousands of people work for our government. With that said, a former DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEE named Miles Taylor, who I do not know (never heard of him), said he left & is on the open arms Fake News circuit. Said to be a real “stiff”. They will take anyone against us!

Discrediting anyone who has negative information about the president is one of Trump’s favorite gambits, but, as is typical, reality eventually rears its ugly head with photographic evidence that Trump is either lying like a cheating husband or that his mental capacity is so limited that no new information can enter his otherwise cavernously empty cerebellum.
Taylor was not one to let the president’s tweet go unchallenged.
He quickly provided the Twittersphere with an example to refresh Trump’s inoperative memory and a warning that his op-ed may not be the last time he provides the public with details of the president’s horrendous dereliction of his duties to preserve, protect and defend our constitutional order.
Alas, I’ll take the bait. Haven’t forgotten you though! I guess the only way to prove it is to tell some stories. Maybe until the election. What do you think? https://t.co/2dJhaLFNlN pic.twitter.com/m3msUsDJyZ

As Chief of Staff for the Department of Homeland Security, Taylor was intimately involved in multiple White House meetings regarding one of Trump’s signature initiatives of evil intent — his immigration policy that separated families and caged children in atrocious conditions — and has the receipts to prove it.
Taylor was being gracious in only including one photo of himself with the president who denies knowing who he is.
A simple Google search can find photos of Taylor on the sidelines of Oval Office gatherings with various DHS colleagues and Trump — like this one:
Hmm! Is it lying or intentional ignorance on Trump’s part?
You be the judge, but given the president’s extensive expertise in the utilization of his forked tongue — with over 200,00 documented lies as of July 13th according to The Washington Post, a total that has surely been greatly augmented in the intervening month — Trump’s nose is likely growing at exponential rates in his Pinocchio ratings.
Perhaps Taylor has a point when he says in his Washinton Post op-ed of the Trump presidency that “Four more years of this are unthinkable.”
Now it’s up to you to make sure that four more years of chaos, disorder, and — dare it be said — treason are prevented by voting Trump out of office in the greatest landslide in American history. Give the man what he deserves.
