I will use this name instead of speaking anonymously:
The entire report of the New York Times published by President Trump by an anonymous writer is now making everyone look bad.
Now that Miles Taylor, who later published a book, is outdated, he hardly fits the description of a “senior government official” who caused “anger” because Washington wants to know the person who described Trump as “petty and ineffective” Is it the cabinet or the subordinate? Cabinet officials, even people in the White House.
Rather, it is the chief of staff of the Secretary of Homeland Security-the Secretary of Homeland Security is an army of Broadway bureaucrats and hardly part of Trump̵
If Taylor resigns and writes his name on that piece, it will hardly cause ripples. It is the “Times” that conveyed this impression: This is the impression that some big insiders deserve the protection of journalists, which arouses the mystery of anonymous people.
Taylor left the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) last year, and this summer he made a big splash on TV by attacking his former boss-but not about his self-change. In fact, when asked if he was anonymous, he flatly lied to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, saying that he only wore epidemic and Halloween masks.

Now-you can’t make up-he has just been hired as a CNN contributor.
The commendable Chris Cuomo confronted Taylor on Wednesday night. “You lied to us, Myers. In August someone asked if you were here to remain anonymous with Anderson Cooper, but you refused. Now, why is CNN asking you to continue working after lying like that?”
Taylor somehow tried to get himself through, saying that he wrote in the book (and donated most of the proceeds) that he “resolutely denies” that he is the author. He said that his initial motivation was to avoid Trump’s preference “to discover personal attacks and interferences and to free people from criticism of his record.”
The President simply referred to Taylor as a “thief” who was “prosecuted” (although there is no evidence that he violated any laws). But Taylor’s reason is indeed that he wants to use the influence of The New York Times to fight Trump without being hit.
All of this reminds me of former Trump officials joining the army of the Resistance, and Republican strategists who united with other groups through Project Lincoln. About how the husband of a senior White House official (George Conway) became famous for his severe attacks on his boss. And on the other hand, how the President and his allies lashed out at Joe Biden, Democrats, media and government opponents.
I have no doubt about anyone’s society and politics is always a difficult game. But the president’s harshest critics often wrap their attacks in the aura of justice.
David Brooks condemned Trump in the Times column using his real name, praised Biden as a “decent personification,” and raised questions about his own behavior and the people who hate Trump Questions about the behavior.
“For the past four years, we have poured out a bunch of anti-Trump diabetes every hour, and in almost every case, they have risen to the top of the list-favorite, most reposted, most read.”

Brooks said the problem is that “permanent indignation is not a healthy emotional state. We have become obsessed with our instincts, obsessed with moral superiority, obsessed with the baptism of affirmation when we repeat everything we believe Fighting Trump has become a business model.”
“Indulging in our own responsibilities” has a certain resonance. The fashionable thing in the media is to attribute hate politics to Donald Trump. However, if Biden is sworn in in January next year, will most of the country simply use sulfuric acid in a different direction?
Will those leftists who have been asking the media and Congress to hold the president accountable just for Biden to defend everything they have done?
Will those rightists who say that the president has been hurt by fake news ruthlessly attack Biden and the Democrats and condemn the press as their son?
Will people continue to yell at each other on Twitter, sometimes using Miles Taylor’s anonymity technology?
This sounds like a constantly ugly prescription. Remember, this is not magically disappearing like an epidemic.
