One of Donald Trump’s ex-officials is now claiming that the Republican Party is massive national security threat when it comes to Democracy.
His name is Miles Taylor, he worked for the DHS in 2017, and he literally says “The Republican party is the number one national security threat to the United States of America.”
And of course, this was on MSNBC’s ‘The ReidOut’ show, so his statement is essentially feeding into the echo chamber audience – giving them exactly what they want to hear.
Taylor’s comments add to the growing list of reasons why shows like this should never be called “news” because they’re mostly just opinions about the news, just like this website. Commentary like what Miles Taylor is about to say in the video below is just gas for the fire called ratings.
WATCH Miles Taylor gaslight the MSNBC audience:
Here’s what else Miles Taylor said:
I’ve spent my whole career not as a political operative. I’ve never worked on a campaign in my life other than campaigning against Trump. I’m a national security guy. I’ve worked in national security against ISIS, al Qaeda and Russia… And the No. 1 national security threat I’ve ever seen in my life to this country’s democracy is the party that I’m in — the Republican Party. It is the No. 1 security national security threat to the United States of America.
Did Miles Taylor just suggest that the GOP is literally worse than ISIS, al Qaeda, and Russia? That literally makes zero sense. I really think this man is gaslighting the audience on MSNBC with this rhetoric and this is part of the reason people just don’t trust the media anymore.
Taylor also claims that if the GOP takes control, that it will create a “haunted House” representing Donald Trump, as reported on The Hill:
Taylor further warned that the House would become a “haunted House” if the GOP regains control of the lower chamber. He added that if Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) became Speaker, it would represent former President “Trump’s hand on that Speaker’s gavel.”
“If Kevin McCarthy continues to pay homage to a twice-impeached presidential loser, I think should give all Americans pause and make them worry about the future of this country and national security,” Taylor concluded.
It’s really difficult to take Miles Taylor’s views serious if he’s comparing the GOP to terrorists.
That’s just inflammatory and unnecessary language and I’m sure he knows it – but it’s the type of jargon that will keep a left-wing audience happy. Taylor’s yelling into the echo chamber with this comparison.
He might be referencing this towards elections, and in that case, his argument doesn’t make much sense because Republicans want voter ID, which would help ensure that every one person gets one vote, and it would obviously work the same for both the Democrats and Republicans.
