‘I think this is Pearl Harbor for the true Trump supporters’ Roger Stone says.
Several of Donald Trump’s most vocal right-wing supporters have rushed to inoculate the beleaguered president from the latest scandal to engulf his administration by attempting to set off a civil war between his closest White House aides.Petty infighting is playing out in anonymously sourced media reports that depict a White House inundated by chaos and dysfunction.But amidst even a time of deep turmoil within the administration one particular report stands out as an obviously transparent attempt to scapegoat chief of staff Reince Priebus for a series of high-profile stumbles.
On Tuesday Breitbart published a blistering report blaming Priebus for the cascading controversies that have consumed the new administration’s first few weeks in office.
Matthew Boyle – Breitbart’s political editor who has covered Trump sympathetically in the past – cited three unnamed sources close to the president to speculate that Priebus’ time in the White House may be short.
Boyle’s anonymous sources portrayed Priebus as in over his head and ineffective at working with Congress.
