Pierce speaks for me: "Just Shut Up and Quit"

https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/politics/a22998786/anonymous-trump-white-house-op-ed-new-york-times/

Jesus H. Christ on an auto-glass ad, everybody who watched him for 11 seconds on the campaign trail figured this out. You'd have to have had the brain of a marmoset not to be convinced of this back in 19-goddamn-79. More than 60 million people voted for him anyway. You took a job with him. When the scales fall from your eyes, make sure they don't hit you in the feet.
...
Yeah, his behavior in office has shocked the hell out of me, too. Who could've guessed that a raving know-nothing with a gold commode might turn out to be a tacky president*?

Enough of this stuff. Stand up in the light of day and tell your stories. All of them, right from the beginning. Admit that what you're confronting now is the end result of 40 years of conservative politics and all the government-is-the-problem malfeasance you've been imbibing since you were wingnuts in swaddling. The fire's licking at your ankles at last. Come out of the cupboards, you boys and girls. None of you are heroes.

3. I was just going to start a thread that I don't think the writer of this Op Ed is a hero

whoever it is thinks they will be able to save themself with this. But the fact is, s/he is involved in a cover up. Anyone who works for this Administration is not protecting the country from Trump they are using Trump to further their own political agenda.

As pointed out in the excerpt EffieBlack posted, whoever wrote this, whoever is engaging in this behavior needs to "Stand up in the light of day and tell your stories".

5. And as for the whistleblower, who elected he/she/them president?

We don't want he/she/them making presidential decisions to protect the country while maintaining the chaos.

Again, you weren't elected, the president is unfit for office, cut the crap and start 25th Amendment proceedings already.

And while you're at it, pack up your office, say goodbye (or not) and be done with the enabling of the orange pustule you've been been complicit with all along.

12. O'Donnell's pick: Dan Coats.

If you watched his program tonight, he was deductive and methodical. And he's probably right.
