Considering the sheer amount of coverage it's gotten (and the ensuing presidential tantrum), it's unlikely you missed the op-ed published in the New York Times yesterday by an anonymous senior Trump official. The official claims that there's a clandestine group working in the White House to shield the world from Trump's unhinged plans and mood swings. An excerpt:

The root of the problem is the president’s amorality. Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making....

Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over.

Some are calling this person a hero, others a traitor, and others have pointed out that the mole might be having a spike of conscience now but she/he/they still supported making that man president. (And is a Republican.) I think there's some truth to this, but I'm still glad she/he/they came out. It's reassuring to know there are still some adults in the White House. However, if she/he/they wanted to reach the America that voted for Donald Trump, the America that needs to see how incompetent their man in DC really is, she/he/they should not have published this in the New York Times. It should have gone to USA Today or the local paper or whatever the hell conservatives these days read. Fox News? By publishing this in the Times, it's only going to reach the side that already knows that man's an idiot. You really want to make a difference? Tell the people who voted for Donald Trump.
