America has a new parlor game, folks! It’s Who Wrote the Op-Ed? It’s like playing a real-life game of CLUE, only doing so 2018-style.
I find the whole thing to be quite hilarious. The facts (if you’ve managed to miss them over the past few hours) are these: somebody claiming to be a “top administration official” in the government wrote a piece in the New York Times, claiming to be working against the Trump regime from within.
First of all, since nobody will admit to writing the Op-Ed, nobody knows if the author in question is actually in the government or not.
Second, even if they are in the government, how do we know they really are a “top administration official?”
We don’t. They didn’t sign their piece.
Third, how do we even know the whole thing isn’t a hoax?
Vice President Pence is a suspect, since he likes to use the word “lodestar,” and that word is in the Op-Ed. It’s also got a lot of people who don’t know what the heck a lodestar is hitting their dictionaries and looking it up.
My guess is it definitely won’t turn out to be Pence. It’s more likely somebody who knows he likes that buzz word and threw it into the Op-Ed for the sake of a little good, old-fashioned misdirection.
Another guess: Omarosa. She just released a book about her time in the White House, and, since she no longer works there, she’s one person who doesn’t have to worry about being fired over it.
All I can say for sure is that I’m enjoying all this to the hilt. As a country, we haven’t had a chance for this much fun since “Deep Throat” blew the whistle on Watergate.
