Trump Staffer Who Wrote That Anonymous 2018 Op-Ed Finally Reveals His Identity

Trump Staffer Who Wrote That Anonymous 2018 Op-Ed Finally Reveals His Identity

The author of the 2018 op-ed for the New York Times, “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” has come forward and revealed themselves to be Miles Taylor, who is the chief of staff to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Now, Miles is speaking out about why he wrote what he wrote.

“More than two years ago, I published an anonymous opinion piece in The New York Times about Donald Trump‘s perilous presidency, while I was serving under him. He responded with a short but telling tweet: ‘TREASON?’” Miles said in a statement.

Miles added, “Make no mistake: I am a Republican, and I wanted this President to succeed. But too often in times of crisis, Donald Trump has proven he is a man without character, and his personal defects have resulted in leadership failures so significant that they can be measured in lost American lives. I witnessed Trump’s inability to do his job over the course of two-and-a-half years inside the Administration. Everyone saw it, though most were hesitant to speak up for fear of reprisals.”

He continued, “So when I left the Administration, I wrote A Warning, a character study of the current Commander in Chief and a caution to voters that it wasn’t as bad as it looked inside the Trump Administration — it was worse. While I claim sole authorship of the work, the sentiments expressed within it were widely held among officials at the highest levels of the federal government. In other words, Trump‘s own lieutenants were alarmed by his instability.”

“This election is a two-part referendum: first, on the character of a man, and second, on the character of our nation. That’s why I’m also urging fellow Republicans to put country over party, even if that means supporting Trump’s Democratic opponent. Although former Vice President Joe Biden is likely to pursue progressive reforms that conservatives oppose (and rest assumed, we will challenge them in the loyal opposition), his policy agenda cannot equal the damage done by the current President to the fabric of our Republic. I believe Joe Biden‘s decency will bring us back together where Donald Trump‘s dishonesty has torn us apart,” he continued.

Miles then wrote, “Trump has been exactly what we conservatives always said government should NOT be: expansive, wasteful, arbitrary, unpredictable, and prone to abuses of power. Worse still, as I’ve noted previously, he’s waged an all-out assault on reason, preferring to enthrone emotion and impulse in the seat of government. The consequences have been calamitous, and if given four more years, he will push the limits of his power further than the “high crimes and misdemeanors” for which he was already impeached.”

The election is coming up in less than one week and Trump still has a lot of celebrity support behind him. Read Miles‘ entire statement about why he wrote the infamous op-ed on CNN.

Luke Evans & Rafael Olarra Refollow Each Other on Instagram Amid Split Reports, Look Back at 'Good Times'

Luke Evans and his boyfriend of over a year, Rafael Olarra, had fans thinking that they ended their relationship after they unfollowed each other on Instagram, but now it seems they could still be together.

On Tuesday (October 27), it was discovered that Luke and Rafa both unfollowed each other on the social media app. Luke also erased nearly every photo of Rafa from his page, though Rafa didn’t seem to delete posts from his account.

Rafa also has left Australia, where he was spending time with Luke for the past three months while the actor filmed the upcoming series Nine Perfect Strangers. He seemingly left for work purposes though, as he shared photos on Instagram showing that he’s back at work at the Faena hotel, where he’s the art director.

On Wednesday (October 28), the guys both refollowed each other on Instagram and they both posted photos on Instagram Stories that looked back at their relationship.

“Good times,” Luke wrote on a photo of them horseback riding on the beach.

Rafa shared a photo of his bedside table, which has a photo of the two of them sitting on it. He wrote, “So far and so close.”

We sure hope they are still a couple as we love seeing them together!

Zachary Quinto Virtually Honored at GQ's Men of the Year Awards 2020

Zachary Quinto was one of the few honored at the 2020 GQ Men of the Year Awards this week.

Accepting his Movie International award from presenter and his The Boys in the Band co-star Jim Parsons, the 43-year-old actor reflected on how his passion for acting was born.

“When I was young and just starting to study acting, I was incredibly lucky to be taught by my great acting teacher,” he shared in a video message. “She shaped my understanding of what it means to be an artist: How you move in the world is at least as important as on stage. I have never forgotten this fundamental lesson.”

Zachary added, “Finding this balance has always been a cornerstone of my consciousness and my ambition to fight for people who have been less fortunate than me.”

The 2020 GQ Men of the Year Awards honored top national and international personalities and other honorees included Claudia Schiffer, Jean Paul Gaultier, Leon Goretzka, and Kimberly Jones.
